Family Fun Day

Today was my Mother-in-law's birthday. We decided to celebrate the day by spending some time together and going to a little festival at a local park. We had a great time! There were so many activities there for the kids to do - Mikayla had a blast. Gavin had fun, too, even if it was just watching everything.

Mikayla got to sit in a firetruck. She thought it was cool looking at all of their equipment.

There was a small petting zoo there and Mikayla got to feed a goat. The others weren't as interested in the food - I am sure they were stuffed from all of the food they were recieving from kids that day.
Mikayla got her face painted, got to make some sand art, and also got to make a candle. It's fun getting to do some of these artsy-crafty things with her now. She is very involved with it and definitely has opinions about how everything should look.
The had several bounce houses there and Mikayla chose to go in one that looked like a big dinosaur.
Gavin had fun chillin in his stroller all day. He was in a great mood all day which is always a welcome blessing. After the festival, we all came back to our house for an early dinner and some cake. It was a great family day! I just had to post this last picture. Have you ever seen someone so happy to eat some fruit!

It was a super fun day just being with the family. Mikayla had a good time and Gavin was giggles and grins. This was one of my best b'days ever!
