To the Lake We Go

I was still feeling a little emotional today from yesterday's episode at the park. I decided a walk in the sunshine might do the trick so I grabbed the kids, my camera, and Wyatt's elephant and headed down our driveway toward the lake.

I can't say I deserve the credit for the idea of hitting the great outdoors. Ansley had been bugging me to go outside so she could get a "poofy head".

Did your faces just twist in the same puzzled look as mine did when I pondered what in the world this intriguing little girl was referring to? Did she want to feel the wind blowing in her hair?

Well, please pull out your dictionaries and make the following correction. The correct name for these... officially "poofy heads" by order of my four-year-old!

Anyways, here are some pictures of the kids blowing away the poofy heads!

And for those of you who weren't in the loop... the yellow flower is called a sunshine flower!

After we picked all the flowers in our yard we made our way down to the lake. As we walked, we stopped along the way to take pictures of the children and pictures of Wyatt's elephant. Even our dog Gunny decided to tag along. It was quite hilarious when he felt the urge to protect us from a tiny little dachshund. I love that he's so protective of our family. Here are some of the pictures from our outing.

These two are my favorite!

I love your pics! It looks like it was such a nice day!

Hehe I like Ansley's names for the dandelions. Cute!!


I love these pictures mostly because dandelions (poofy heads) are funny to me : ) Everytime my mom sees them she has to tell me the story about when I first tried to blow one away and instead of blowing out, I sucked in.... I'm sure you can see why my mom thinks that one is hilarious : )
Precious Moments as my mama would say : )
