Spontaneous Family Adventure... see TURTLES!

We had heard that from a certain bridge over the creek in our neighborhood park you could see literally hundreds of turtles in the summer mornings.  One morning, we decided to get up early before school/work and eat our breakfast in the park and share with the turtles.  It was such a fun and spontaneous family adventure.  And the turtles did not disappoint.  There were so many of them- big and small.  And they LOVED our breakfast rolls, too.


I love my little family and the fun adventure we have together.  The simple things really do delight our children at this age...which totally delights their momma and daddy!

Best kind of celebration!

Is there is any better way to celebrate the fourth of July than fireworks and popsicles in your neighborhood? 

THERE IS! It is to celebrate the fourth of July with fireworks & popsicles in your neighborhood WITH one of your best buddies spending the night.

We had a great fourth of July, celebrating in the park by our house with some of our small group and then our good buddy LT spent the night. 

KJ and LET are such good friends, but really our whole family loves having him around.  He is so sweet to Lou and Cbug and makes us all laugh...sure love that kid (and his family)!

I have lots to post about our fabulous 4th of July holiday weekend, and our sweet baby Lou's first birthday party including an amazing visit from my parents.  But I'm a bit overwhelmed by the number of pictures involved in documenting those occasions.

In the meantime, here are some picture of today, and a celebration of another kind.

July 9th is marked on our family calendar as a holiday to be enjoyed.

And enjoy it we did.

Cow Appreciation Day 2010.

When there is free food involved at one of our favorite places, our mantra is...

Hope you enjoyed the festivities today, too! 
If not, mark July 9th on your calendar and next year get free food at a Chick Fil A near you.
Just a free tip from me to you.


and just for fun, here is a picture of two of our little cows on July 9, 2009.
