Luke and Joy’s friend Madeleine celebrated her 3rd birthday today and she invited them to a picnic party in the gazebo with her brother Will, sister Elizabeth, Mommy, Daddy, Grandmother and Granddad. Mummy was their too. The weather wasn’t very nice but that didn’t matter. There was great food and big balloons which are always fun in gale force winds.

Wow, Luke and Joy had a busy day today! Mommy’s been sick but woke up this morning feeling much better. That meant she had to get crackin’ on her presentation for Monday’s BIG meeting with a BIG client! So daddy took Luke and Joy to breakfast at Shipyard Galley and then off we went to Parlow Farms to see farmer Rockwell and pick up our veggies. We took a little spin around Marion and stopped briefly at daddy’s friends, the Barry’s. A little wiffle ball in Shipyard Park, followed by a nap and we were ready to go to Family Fun Day at the Casino where we ran into all kinds of friends including Brendan and May Kate. There was a Nemo water slide, which Luke enjoyed and Joy didn’t, and lots of other fun games.


The kid band Blackout pleased the crowd with a couple of sets.


Tonite, Secret played in the gazebo and Luke “stayed up later” with daddy, 9:00 pm , the end of the concert. It was a cool, crystal clear night and Daddy and Luke scouted the sky for falling stars. Daddy also taught Luke about the Big Dipper and how to find the North Star.

All in all, today was a great adventure!
