Before heading to Murdock for the weekend, the kids and I had a play date with Pam, Lilly and Levi in Buffalo. We've lived here two years and never enjoyed Buffalo Lake or their splash pad. So upon my suggestion, that is what we did Friday morning.
It was perfect summer weather and other than Levi getting stung by a bee (poor guy...but he handled it really well all things considered), it was a great time!! We started at the splash pad which is simple (just geysers, no buckets or anything).
Korri told me she looks like me after a shower! Ha, because I put my hair up in a towel. Then we headed over to the park for a picnic. It was a bit windy but really nice out. After lunch, we went down to the beach. The wind was coming in, so the water was a little rough and dirty but the kids didn't mind. We played there FOREVER until I finally said we had to leave because we had to pack for the weekend yet!
Mac enjoyed the beach WAY more than the splash pad, He did NOT like getting splashed unexpectedly, which is a little weird since he loves it during bath time. Oh, well. I'm pretty sure he ate his weight in sand, but he didn't mind. We had so much fun at the beach, we didn't even make it over to the play ground. Oh, well. Maybe next time.
This is what summer's all about: fun in the sun with friends!!
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
