The Dentist and a Beautiful Day at the Park...

After a mixed bag kind of dentist appointment and lunch with Dad, Valiant, Buttercup and I had some time to kill before we met our homeschooling friends at the MAC, so we headed to the park!


First, we admired how beautiful the day was. Doesn't this look like a postcard picture?


Then, the kids proved you're never too old to try for the brass ring! (This Loof Carousel is more than 100 years old!)

After that, we needed mini donuts (horseback riding is hard work!). The man operating the booth taught us all the "baker's dozen" originally had to do with the weight of bakery products - who knew?

We went to feed the squirrels...the same man like the kids and gave them peanuts to share with the squirrels.



We admired the Canada Geese ...

...and Mallard ducks.

Then, it was time to leave the park and head to the MAC...
...and Valiant wasn't so sad about getting a cavity (donuts, ducks, and merry-go-rounds can fix just about anything!).

So, how was your day?

It was awesome...not too hot, not too cool. Not crowded, either. Melissa, come visit!
