"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Dad's 55th Birthday!

We sure know how to party in our family! We had quite the celebration weekend! We started off celebrating my Dad's 55th birthday on Saturday. We had a picnic at Wooton Park in Tavares. Wooton Park has the coolest splash park I've ever seen, and the kids were thrilled to see all of the fun sprinklers, buckets, and water slides!
 Daddy was brave enough to take them all in. He looked like he enjoyed himself too!
 Carson loved the water slide!
 After our splashing fun, we played on the playground for awhile. A kids dream! A giant playground and splash park side by side.
It was so nice spending time with family. We sat out by the lake and enjoyed the breeze. My grandmother is doing much better after a few months of recovering from her recent health scare, and we were so glad to spend time talking with her and enjoying the day.
 A yummy picnic lunch...
The birthday boy with his grandkids! They all HAD to sit with him and help him blow out the candles! I think we may have lit the candles several times so they could all have a turn. What a nice Papa!
Mmmmm.....chocolate cake!!

One of the presents we had for my Dad was a surprise dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Ohana, at the Disney's Polynesian Resort! We all couldn't wait for the huge feast of delicious food and had a wonderful time!
 The waitor and waitress led us all in singing Happy Birthday to Dad, complete with Mickey ears using small white plates :)
Matt and I with our favorite part of the whole Ohana experience...Banana Fosters! Yum!
Happy Birthday Dad! We hope you enjoyed celebrating your birthday as much as we did! We love you!
