Our Six on M Day

This is the best of the bunch. 
We found a relatively shady spot, and snapped a photo whilst the going was good!

I was constantly counting our kids. Head count, after head count. 
This is what going to huge park is like with six kids, a husband and a MIL. MIL is in the background :D

Of course there is ALWAYS one that doesn't want to cooperate. Catie didn't want to participate. I still like the photo LOL. Sorry you have no head Cameron. Mom still loves you :D

We took the kids and my MIL to Minter Gardens. I had never been, either had ANY of us really . We had hoped to take Grandpa last year the Sunday after Fathers Day. But he wasn't able to. He was way too sick to enjoy it. So, I decided we needed to go there and make some good memories. And we sure did! We also decided that the park would have been too difficult for Grandpa when he was in his chair. The bumps would have been too painful. And, of course lots of steep gravel pathways.

We listened to music, we danced in the square. We ate. We walked. And we counted heads of course.

I cannot wait to go back in the summer, when the roses are blooming.

More photos to come. Be prepared for photo overload!
