It is Father’s Day again, and here is Sean surrounded by his young minions.

And so very proud.

Excited for November/December.
A decoration I made for our room. I know it is a terrible picture, but such is life and it was the best I could get. There are birds to represent each of the members of our family, including Baby Bird.
It was a great way to announce to the kidlets they had a brother or sister on the way and to celebrate Father’s Day at the same time.
After Abigail made her birthday cake, we made our way to a local park and went geocaching. It was a hot, hot, hot day and when I mean hot, I mean melting you the moment you step out of the a/c hot. It was fun to go looking for cache’s but it was hot.
We did not find a number of caches that were supposed to be there, but we did find one in the woods, it was quite the hike.
Our main purpose for the geocaching that day was to drop off our travel bug in a cache in hopes that someone would find it and take it westword towards Nevada. Abigail is holding up Suzi the Sock. We put it in the cache. About a month later, maybe less, someone took it out and said they would try to get it a little further west. We have not heard anything about it since. Here is hoping it does not get lost.
About this time, I was wishing I was Levi, being carried around on someone’s back. I know I sound like I am really lazy. Trust me, it was not laziness, it was so hot and humid that day and by this time, we were almost out of water in all our water bottles. No worries, after we finally made our way out to the road, I sat with the younger kids, who were hot and tired, and we ate a snack, drank some water and waited for the big ones to get back from finding another cache.
Out of the woods, but still in the shade.
And then the battery died on the camera. There were so many other good pictures to be taken that day, they will all have to stay in our memories. We always say, we need to do this more often, now, let’s see if we can do it more often.
This year Abigail decided she would make her own birthday cake. She wanted to make a Red Velvet cake from scratch. Here is the preparation table. Levi is so excited.

Making the yummy frosting. I see Miriam is testing it to make sure it tastes good.
It was a joy to watch Abigail make her first birthday cake from scratch for herself. I offered to make it, but she insisted that she wanted to do it. What a blessing. She is already planning to make other people’s cakes and work on decorating them also.
