Father's Day Celebration: Take A Hike!

Happy Father's Day!

How did you celebrate?

We celebrated with a three-mile hike pushing strollers. Super Dad pushed the triplets up hills and down. He had a lot of strangers wish him a happy Father's Day while we were out!

Our hike was at a local sculpture park, and had a great time. We headed out in the morning and turned the kids loose to play on the art installations.

Sam and Amelia loved this bench/slide/jungle gym.

One hundred acres was just about enough space to make the boys happy. After a nice picnic lunch we headed home and all of the boys fell asleep in the van.

We spent the afternoon playing in the pool in the back yard. We had to get a larger model, since we outgrew the baby pool by the end of last summer. This one is just about right for four active kids.

Splishin' and a-splashin'

Isaac and Alex were hamming it up for the camera:

The best part of today was spending it with the very best Dad. Thanks, Jeff for all you do for all of us!

(And thanks for tolerating a Father's Day plan that included a three-mile hike in the heat while pushing 100 pounds of boys and stroller. You earned that steak and beer!)

Yum, steak and beer. Makes me want to be a father.

I do not think I got enough sleep last night. Does that comment make sense? Really, I would just like someone to make me delicious steak and beer.

KLZ, I totally understood that. I'd like someone to make me a steak and serve up a cold beer, too. But I didn't mind making my own either. Turned out just right!
