Daddy's Birthday Saturday...

What a busy week it's been!
Busy weeks seem to be frequent for us lately
and my lack of blogging shows it.
I hope y'all are doing well
and I do look forward to catching up one of these days.

I had a few moments so I wanted to share
some photos from Daddy's birthday last Saturday.
We sang the traditional Happy Birthday song,
gave our cards and a few gifts,
and ate Daddy's brownie cake... Mmmm!

Afterwards, Daddy wanted to go to a local field to play ball.
We had a lot of fun (and I took A LOT of pictures)...

Here was Daddy blowing up one of the balls...




Daddy's waitin'

Tossing the football with Will and Daddy...

Daddy and Ally

Ally caught Daddy kicking the ball
and we've been chuckling at the pose ever since... lol

Ally got to bring the van around by the net
so we could use the back of it for sitting
(I have mixed emotions about this

The lil' girls enjoying a snack...

And Ally was thrilled to play her guitar...

She and Daddy enjoyed singing...

Dad and Will enjoyed a quick game of basketball...

The field we were at was near the water
and I got a few photos as everyone enjoyed the view...


Beth and Ally

Here was a shot of Beth and Carolynne sharing a snack...

And here was Carolynne's choice of footwear for the day...


Afterwards we headed home for supper.
Daddy wanted to grill outdoors...

As we waited for supper,
Ally spent a few moments

Will practiced riding a bike...

Carolynne and Beth enjoyed playing with Legos...

It was a busy and delightful day spent with Daddy!

"And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children,
and the heart of the children to their fathers..."
~ Malachi 4:6

"While I live will I praise the LORD:
I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being."
~ Psalm 146:2

I love how you take the ordinary and make it so inspiring and refreshing. I mean, it wasn't just any old day as it was your Beloved's birthday, but there was a normalcy and beauty about how you spent the day that just captured me. Thank you for sharing!

"Eeeek!" said I at the sight of Ally's bow arm being taxed by a football. ;)

What a perfectly lovely time your Saturday looks. I never tire of your photo posts.

You really take wonderful pictures! Is that with just a digital camera or do you have a special camera you take with you!

What a special day you all had together! And it looked beautiful outside too which makes it all the better!

A brownie cake sounds yummy! And your hubby looks like he had an awesome day. Praise the Lord!

Happy Memorial Day from one military wife to another!

What a lovely day y'all had! My favorites are the one of Will by the water, of Ally with her guitar hanging over her back, and definitely of Beth and Carolynne sharing a snack. Priceless

Happy Belated Birthday to SGT Daddy. ;) Hope he enjoyed his day. Looks like you all had fun.

Ah Ally, she looks so grown up in the drivers seat doesn't she? Time flies to fast for a Mother's Heart.

Have a beautiful weekend

Happy Belated Birthday to DH from us here in Malta. I enjoy your blog so much , thanks for sharing all these lovely photos with us. Hey love the photo of Beth with her choice of footwear , that's great!!! What my little one does at times is he puts the left in the right and I let him then after a while he usually tells me that he thinks it is not right and should switch them ;) !!
