Frogs, Bread fights, and Grandma on Jordan's Bike

Well, as you can see from the title, our nature walk today turned out to be quite an eventful trip! We were greeted at the onset by a bunch of frogs in the pond. These are all the tadpoles that Aunt Chrissy would catch with the kids just a couple of months ago.

Then it was on to find and feed the ducks. Unfortunately, they were all gone today. Not one duck around. BUMMER. So what to do, what to do....well, have a bread fight of course!! (Grandma's and Chrissy's idea) So there they were three laughing kids and two crazy adults hurling bread and old blueberry muffins at each other. I wish the pictures could talk. It was HILLARIOUS!! We were all starting to walk away when it was over, when Mikayla (kind of shocked) mumbles under her breath to Chrissy and me, "Grandma threw a whole muffin at my head!" I could not stop laughing.

Then it was on to the park for some good ol' fashion playtime. Isabella would call out, "Hoist the anchor!". Then we would hear, "The anchor is in, set sail". It was refreshing to see them playing together nicely. BUT....that didn't last too long before there was new pushing and yelling at the water fountain. So it was obvious that it was time to head back when all of a sudden I hear, "Stephanie turn around...LOOK!" So I turn around and look to find my mother riding Jordan's bike to the fountain. Words can not express. She even decided to do it again on the trail but this time Mikayla reminded her that she needed to wear the helmet!

Good times today. I love the lazy days of summer when you can just relax and be. Hope you are all finding ways to enjoy the day today.
