Oh what a day!!

Sunday was not only Father's Day but it was also the day that Maisie turned 20 months old, so a fun filled day was a must. Deb had been trying for weeks to get Maisie and I to go to White Water with them but I'd been hesitant. Maisie had been so uncomfortable in any water and I didn't relish the idea of chasing her around the periphery of the park. Now that she's been to the pool daily and loves to splash around and the fact that Eammon would also be with us, we decided to give it a go. It was lots of fun and Maisie and LiLi had so much fun together in the kiddie area. We were there for just over two hours and it went much better than I had anticipated. In all likelihood, next season we'll get a pass as Maisie will be that much older and more comfortable and it should make for some fun days next summer.

Eammon and I worked to keep Maisie awake for the short ride home and then she went down for a nap during which time I made an English Sherry Trifle to bring along for dessert that night. After Maisie's nap we headed over to Deb's for dinner where she made a gorgeous dinner of grilled lamb with a tzatziki type sauce along with a great corn, feta, tomato & basil salad. Everything was wonderful, the food and the company. A great way to celebrate, good friends and great food. I think too that they all liked my dessert as everyone went back for second and in some cases third helpings! Deb and family, thanks for a great day.

As you can see, she was just roaring with laughter. 1.jpg_Thumbnail12.jpg_Thumbnail1 3.jpg_Thumbnail1 4.jpg_Thumbnail1 5.jpg_Thumbnail1 6.jpg_Thumbnail17.jpg_Thumbnail18.jpg_Thumbnail1
