Big, Beautiful Weekend Part 2

We *harvested* our veggies this weekend:

Yep, that's it.  So much rain this summer.  Some things thrived, but our little garden, so carefully planned and lovingly planted, was not one of them.  We made the freshest mashed potatoes ever yesterday.  Yum.
Our celebration ended up differently than planned as well.  We sang *Happy Birthday* by a pond in the woods instead of on our high rock.  The cake was decorated by the girls:

Mother Nature contributed the party decorations:

On the way out, we were seriously burning daylight.  Two littles with overactive imaginations were almost hysterical by the time we made it back to the car.  Poor dears.

They want flashlights next time…
