We have a pretty cool Daddy, and today he turned...um...older. He told us he wanted to go on a picnic for his birthday, so off we went this morning! It being Memorial Day weekend, we thought we would have to search for a spot, but our favorite one just up the road was open (to all those people who drove by slowly while we were there - sorry! Hope you found a spot!)
Mostly the kids alternated between eating and running around, which is a great way to spend a day!
The dogs had fun running around, too.
Well, mostly Emily wanted to chill, but Kela had other ideas.
|Where are you going? I thought we were wrestling!|
Daddy had the same idea as Emily.
Whereas Shane mostly wanted the food.
|Emily finally got away from the youngster!|
Sheridan kept running off with the goldfish crackers...
So, Shane made sure she couldn't any more.
This is literally just around the corner from our house, but different trees are always much more interesting.
|Still has the goldfish crackers.|
|Forest dance party!|
Shane was standing here for the longest time, mesmerized.
Then he started reaching out into the air.
When I got closer, I realized there were a bajillion butterflies all around the campfire.
Mostly there were tiny blue ones, but I could not get a decent picture of them to save my life. Plenty of these, though (and one giant yellow one that almost landed on Sheridan a couple times!)
And he didn't try to eat a single one!
And, that's a great Daddy for you - planning something fun for the kids for his own special day. Happy Birthday again, we love you!
