daddy's day


what an awesome dad.

for real, father's day is such fun because we have such a fab daddy to celebrate.

 yesterday was a day full of brad's choices. 

pig in the blankets for breakfast, a daddy fave.  then we packed up the veen and headed for silver lake.  as we wheeled toward our destination, we were confident that rain would not spoil our fun.  though the temps plummeted and the clouds sprinkled, we found silver lake sunny and hot upon arrival.

our plan was to grab lunch there before hittin the beach.

  our eagerness to explore trumped our hunger and we settled on individual cereal bowls and milk and spoons at a picnic table.

brad's call.

this was my first adventure to silver lake.

 and it was beautiful.

  and sandy. a lot of climbing and walking to find the perfect spot to settle.

 i had ayla jo in my sling and whoa baby whoa.  what a workout! 

we spent the day together splashing,



 and watching the adorables and

 all the dune buggys, razors, trucks and dirt bikes take to the dunes.
