With Mike officially gone for his two weeks and our first full day on our own, I decided to venture back to the Poppy Fields with the kids being there wasn't any wind. Low and behold, wouldn't you know that I saw a surprisingly familiar white Honda Odyssey with Alaska plates as I was heading into the parking lot. Wouldn't you know, two girls from our TPS class along with their kids had the same wonderful idea as me. Anyway, we met up with kids in tow for a beautiful "hike". (Notice I put hike in quotes! There is only so much hiking you can do when you have six kids 6 and under with you...) The poppies were wide open this time and much brighter. The kids had a blast and it certainly was a great way to spend a day.
See - I can do it with three (as crazy as it may look)!
What would a day be without a little belly bumping?
All of our crazy kids (minus Jacob because he was on my back the whole time) at the end of a long walk. We headed off to Foxy's at the airport for some lunch and then it was another night of potluck dinner thanks to Katie! We sure had a busy day but I couldn't think of a better way to spend it.
