The best days of all, Daddy Days!!!

This summer has been crazy!  Really, really crazy!  But a couple of weekends ago Daddy decided to take the whole day and take his girls to the coast.  Nothing gets the five girls in this house excited like the idea of spending the whole day with Daddy!

Our first stop was Regatta Park.  I had been here as a little girl, but had forgotten all about it.  This is a really cool place!

This is only about 1/2 of the play structure!

Lydia and Bethany had a blast exploring all of the different things to climb, jump on, slide on etc..

Havilah was a little less than thrilled at not being able to swing the whole time, but still had fun watching her sisters.  "Swing now?"

The rubber bridge cheered her up a little!

The big girls however, never ran out of new things to try!

Finally, Havi got to swing!

Our next stop was the beach!  It was a little windy, but overall a gorgeous day!

"What's the hole for Daddy?"

Havi is the first one planted!

What pretty little flowers!

Lydia LOVED the ocean and would have chased waves all day long!

Bethany however, much preferred to keep her distance!

We went on south to Newport and checked out the wharf.

And of course the sea lions!

And of course, Mo's!

Waiting for food!

Mmmmm! Clam chowder!

Ella enjoyed her crackers!

On our way out of town we had time for one last stop. Salt Water Taffy!!!!!!!

Thank you Daddy for such a wonderful day!!!  It will be remembered for a very long time! We all love you!!!!!

Sea lions?!? My kids would love that!

Looks like you had a great day .. daddy days are so wonderful!

Yesterday morning, Matt had to leave for work but, as he was walking out the door, Reesie looked up at him and said "daddy, will you stay and watch me get on my bus?" What did he do? He sat right down next to her and 15 minutes later walked her to the stop and waved as the bus drove away. A little late for work but it left such an impression on his little girl's heart! Daddies are so special to their daughters!
