More Food on Father's Day

Here is another shot from Father's Day, after our strenuous hike, perusal of the gift shop and snack of strawberries and clif bars.

Aurora has the strictest dietary needs in the family so unfortunately for this meal she made do with french fries and bun. I gave her a bite of Gary's strawberry sundae, too, free for fathers at Burgerville (father's day only, of course).

Sorry for the fuzzy photo.

Father's Day

Gary and Arlo started a tradition a couple of years ago of visiting the Audubon Society on Father's day.

This year the weather was nice and sunny but not too hot, perfect, really, for a short stroll in the woods and a look at some birds.

And for eating, of course.

Aurora, Demitri and Sarah have been going to Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden a lot lately.

If you haven't been, it's a delightfully water-filled park with all sorts of water fowl, squirrels, big green lawns and, of course, rhododendrons.

And don't forget the crazy baby drivers!
I didn't know Aurora would be such a natural driver. Watch out, Portland roads!

Thanks to Sarah for the photo. :)

You Look Hungry

Aurora is such a good sharer nowadays!

Here she is, sharing her cheez-it with me as I dig into the tupperware for more chex-mix.

(That's healthy, right? Whole grain cereals with butter? Babies need fat in order to survive. So do adults, for that matter. Thank goodness we're so Healthy, eating plenty of fat and whole grains in the form of ice cream and crackers.)

Most of the time Aurora holds out her prize to someone, then pulls it back when they reach for it. She already knows how to trick us!
