Dad's Day - A Surprising Trip to the Gardens

What an utterly awesome long weekend. We truly had a wonderful time. It all started on Friday. As planned, I began with a little breakfast picnic. Now, if you are expecting a picnic basket filled with goodies that I slaved over in the kitchen then you would be expecting far too much. You have way overestimated me. However, if you were expecting a paper bag stuffed with taquitos from Whataburger, 3 small orange juices, and one very large coffee then you might know me a little better. Regardless, a surprisingly quick drive through experience at the old fast food restaurant and we were cooking with grease. Our day began at the botanical gardens. Here is a shot of breakfast.

As you can see, it was a pretty nice little excursion. You may wonder where I sat. Unfortunately, I was relegated to the adult table. It was a bit cold out but we were having enough fun that we decided to spend the rest of the day here. There was an emergency poo situation that required a quick trip back home where we performed some serious cleaning and a bath. Don't ask. Anyway we decided to pick up DeeDee and take her out on our next adventure to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. We spent the rest of the morning traipsing through the rose garden, the gated garden, and the Japanese garden. We had a blast and it was a pretty good decision too. Watching the news later that evening we would find out that the zoo hit a record high attendance with over 17,000 people. The traffic was backed up for miles.

Now, just so you know. I did keep to my word and I kept a little photo journal of our little excursion. I will share it with you. But first, I want you to know that taking pictures is not my strong suit. In fact, you may notice that I have never been in charge of taking or putting up photos on the website. I write in the diary. I just work here. However, if you would like to see more pictures of the kiddos and our adventures (which I know many have been asking for) then you have to let us know. It is simple. If you want me to take more pictures, then you have to leave comments on the pictures that I take. It is a two way street. It is simple, I don't want to take the time to post the pictures of the kiddos if no one is going to share them and enjoy them with me. So, bottom-line, if you want me to continue to take pictures and post them on the web them you have to leave some comments on the pictures. Look at it this way, the kid's will love to hear what everybody says about their pictures. We will be able to share this experience together and it will be a keepsake of their memories and your comments forever. So, there you have it. We have a deal. I post the pictures, you leave a comment on them. I have posted my first photo journal on Flickr. You can leave a comment on any picture that you like. You will notice a small comments link under each picture. Our new photo journal can be found here:

Have fun! We sure did.

See, now we all have another purpose.
