I wonder if Mathew has guessed what is going to happen on his birthday?
Since we are officially out of school and have an entire day to celebrate, we decided to go over to Deanna Rose Farmstead for a little fun with the animals. We invited the McCauleys to come along.
After feeding the baby goats (who are we kidding...I'm convinced those are not babies. They are just short little greedy adult goats), we bought a couple of buckets of worms and went fishing.
Zach caught a fish.
Mathew and Ethan caught fish after fish after fish....
Megan languished with her unlucky pole. She tried worms. She tried fish bait. She swapped poles and sent good fishing thoughts out into the universe. Those fishies were not coming her way.
For crying out loud, it's the girl's birthday!
I literally said a little prayer...."If there is anyone up there that can help this girl catch a fish on her birthday, that would be really great."
After Deanna Rose, we headed home for the birthday dinner.
Megan requested "Casserole"...which means Sausage Potato Casserole. To her it is the only thing that qualifies as a casserole. It could be considered casserole royalty.
Raise your hand if you hope mom thoroughly washed the worms out from under her finger nails before she made dinner!!
And then onto a cake featuring Flynn Rider stepping out with Belle. Don't tell Rapunzel and The Beast.
Megan asked for a fish tank for her birthday and she received the tank and two glo-fish. Unfortunately, as many little Walmart fish do, they were dead within a week. So I suppose you could say that she got a valuable lesson about grief and loss for her birthday....the gift that keeps on giving.
