Since we have three birthdays in our family within a two-week time span, we thought it would be fun to celebrate all of them yesterday at a park. We decided to go to Carriage Hill Metropark in the Dayton area because it is halfway between where our daughter and her family live in Columbus and where the rest of us live in West Chester. None of us had ever been there before, but I think we'll be returning. It was such a fun day for all!
We decided to first take a walk around the lake.
None of us had any idea that there would be so many wildflowers in bloom in mid-September.
Then it was time for some games. All the "boys" had fun with both a football and a soccer ball. Of course, the little boys enjoyed just running around and doing the things that boys like to do.
Then it was time for a picnic lunch followed by opening birthday gifts. Here is Tom setting up the lawn dart game that he got. Haiden and Garrett were very anxious to try it out.
Then it was time for birthday
Here are the birthday guys who just happen to be arranged left to right in the order of their birthdays. (Stephen's was yesterday, September 14. Garrett's is on September 23, and Tom's is on September 28.)
...and then, all too soon, it was time for us to go home! We all had such a good time that I'm hoping we'll all go back again.
