Father's Day 2019

A quick blog to capture Father's Day weekend 2019.  I woke up on Father's Day with an unexpected headache so I popped a Motrin and planned to take the family on a short hike at Great Falls National Park along the Potomac River.  We were out of the house by 8am and, even though the kids weren't too happy with the plan in the morning, we had a great time.  I felt wiped out after the hike so I spent most of the rest of the day napping or resting.  Enjoy the pics from our hike.

Further below are pics from the trip Mike and I took to Smith Mountain Lake Friday evening to Saturday afternoon.  With his family out of town, it seemed like a good time to get some lake time in on his new toy!








 

Kiki being silly...


 
 

 
 



 



Smith Mountain Lake

The trip down to the lake took us through the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is always a beautiful drive.


Mexican dinner on the water

The hammock setup lake-side, it was a beautiful evening to sleep outside.  The weather was about 60 degrees overnight with a near full moon...perfect.

Spray Paint Art

Kaitlyn recently started watching spray paint art videos and seems to appreciate the artistic creativeness involved.  She's always enjoyed art-related activities so this was not a big suprise.  She found a really cool spray paint artist on YouTube named Skech and she's probably watched around 20 of his art videos.  This morning she asked if we had any spray paint materials around the house for her to try it out.  I was happy to obligue and let her have fun with it.  She created her own stencil for the clouds after watching one of Skech's videos and it turned out pretty nice.

Michelle and I were both very surprised with her first few pieces, she impressed us both.  Jonthan was soon wanting to test his hand with the cans and made a few pictures of his own.  Here are several pics from their first day of playing around. 

We started out under the trampoline to keep her in the shade and away from the house.  If you look, you can see Jonathan's impression on the trampoline above her...he was watching through the netting  :)


Here's her first finished piece...we absolutely love it!  Daddy called dibs on keeping this one.


Her second piece

Jonathan wanted in on the action as well...

It was really cute listening to Kaitlyn help him and seeing them work together.


They spent a few hours playing around today testing out differnet colors and trying things they've seen online.  Here are some of their works...
