On Sunday the fam went to Victoria's Garden in Lakeside. We went with my friend Michelle and her son Sterling. Daniel and Sterling had such a blast. They saw farm animals, took a train ride, a hay ride, spent 15 min. on a giant blow up slide, and ate hot dogs. As if that weren't enough, Daniel also wanted to ride on the cheesy little mechanical car that you stick 50 cents into. You know the ones in front of every Wal-Mart or K-Mart? Of all the things to do on a farm he wanted to do that. He threw a mini tantrum when we left because he didn't get to ride the car. We would have probably given in but not after he started whining about it. Sometimes it's hard to be a parent and you just want to give in so badly, but we held strong.
Jakey hung out in the pumpkin wagon (I wish I had a picture) most of the time and was a perfect angel, unlike his brother. If it's not one, it's the other, I tell you!
It is such a small world. We ran into the Bollingers there and a LPA family we had met before. AND, the Coon's were at the same place the day before.
Attempt at a family pic (except Daniel was more interested in Sterling who was trying to crash the family photo -- it's ok Sterling, we love you as family!)
Slide fun (Daniel's in the stripped shirt, the kid with the crazy moves)
Awesome action shot with tongue hanging out.
Two pals (I love this picture...so cute!)
