Memorial Day Weekend

It was super fun.  The kids and I and my parents went to have some fun at a park near my home.  It was not hot dogs and hamburger type of fun thankfully.  The kids and I will have our hamburgers tonight at a benefit night at where else of a better place but Fuddruckers!  We are looking forward to it.

Dinner!  (I had started this post a few days ago)

  Fuddruckers was great and best of all the kids behaved beautifuly!!  Second best, we hopefully raised a lot of money for the school.  I have not got the totals in but we saw many friends there.

Back to Memorial Day.  At the park was so many activities!  The older two got to try canoeing.

They paddled around in the stream splashing each other and having a great time.

It is not the first time they have been in a canoe but it was the first time without dad or me, well just dad.  I don't think I have ever took them in a boat.  I stand on the sidelines and take pictures.

Oh how she wanted to play in the water with the big brothers.

And Grace, content to be held and played with on her memas lap.

We saw there the biggest bullfrog I have ever seen!  It might be the only one  have ever seen because I have never seen a frog so large.

Neither has my princess.

This frog was probably the size of my 2 year old's torso.

They told her she could touch it.

She thought twice about it.  She was a little unsure.

But at the end of the day what kid can resist?

YaY!  Little Princess Faith!
She touched it.  I would not.  Maybe kiss it?!!?   :) But I do not want to touch it.

The boys also continually over and over raced each other to the top of a rock wall.

Then would jump down

And do it all again

And of course again the princess stood in awe.  Wanting to do whatever  the big brothers are doing and  I have no doubt she could.

Ah good day.  I tried to get a picture together  of the kids and me since none could be took at the school play, it did not turn out well.

But the one of the kids and my parents much better.

What a great day! I have always wanted to canoe. You think as much as we are outdoors we would have already done it but we just haven't had the opportunity yet. It's on my bucket list though :)

That rock wall is awesome. Is all that stuff in a local park?

I think your family photos turned out nicely. It's hard to get everyone to cooperate!
