Dad's Birthday Party!

Kim, Tabatha, Baby J., Chris and I went to my Dad and Sharon's last night for his birthday party. We brought pizza and wings and Sharon baked a cake.
Chris and I gave Dad a wheelbarrow for his birthday. While the guys were putting it together, Baby J. decided to steal the box that some of the parts came in.
Grandpa thought it was so funny that she just sat in the box and played with her toys. She played and played and played with the flaps on the box. She concentrated on the tape and tried so hard to pull it off. Her mommy pulled her around the yard also, and she really enjoyed that too.

Here is Grandpa making sure Baby J. is doing OK.

After the wheelbarrow was all put together, Baby J. wanted the first ride in it. Don't be nervous about this picture, Daddy was right next to her keeping an eye (probably both) on her.

While packing our cars up to get ready to leave, this little guy came out of the woods by Dads house. It is a buck born last spring. It has 2 spikes showing. We were surprised to see that it is in velvet already. It stood there and watched us while it ate, until a dog chased it off.

We need to quit buying her toys. Just give her tags and boxes! Mom

Isn't that always the way it is...they'd rather play with the box than the toy! lol Happy belated Birthday to your dad...sounds like he had a great day and that new wheelbarrow looks pretty spiffy:-) What a gorgeous deer you got to see! xox

Boxes are always a great toy. I can remember riding around in a wheelbarrow that my grandpa pushed when I was about 3 or 4!

How lucky to see the deer and that it was so unafraid. The photos are awesome.
Thanks so much for your visit and comment. It's always lovely to "see" you :)
