|The Birthday Girl and Her Third-Born Child, Bucky!|
Then, the Birthday Hot Dog Roast! For my mom's birthday, which was on Good Friday this year, she wanted to have a hot dog roast in the forest. And so we loaded up on Saturday and had the time of our lives hanging out for the entire day in the most perfect spring weather we could have ever asked for up in the forest. The kids climbed a "mountain," Britt all the way to the top and Brailey halfway before she got kind of scared and came back down. But she found a supply of petrified wood, which she brought home and is sure she can sell for a pretty penny. And Brady met Britt on his way back down the hill and went all the back to the top with him, so Britt was tired, but loved every second of the climb! We tried to fly the gorgeous kites my mom bought for them, but there wasn't enough wind. We had more fun than I can even write about! It was a great day, and we all had a wonderful time being together and just being. It is a rare occasion for The 4 B's to simply relax, so we were especially grateful for the down time and special day.
