Super Hero Dad Father's Day Party

This Father's Day the gingers unite with their Super Hero Dad's and Grandad's to practice saving the world once again. You never can tell when you will find yourself in a laser beam field unable to move or sitting on your couch watching the Kardashians, surrounded by mountains of toys with no sign of a remote in site. You never can be too prepared. So... Super Dads Assemble!
The first assembly of super hero dads.
Super dad's and grandpa's with all the kiddos.
Batdad and Supergirl!
Iron Grandpa and Wonder Baby!
Captain America and Super Grover!
Super Heros Assemble!!!
Batman gives us his best 'If looks could kill' face.
Wonder Baby is ready for her closeup.
Claire by day and Super Girl by afternoon sometime.
Papa Darrell used to be one of the gingers long ago.
Just incase you didn't know what Iron Grandpa looks like.
Someone else didn't want to be left out of the assembly.
Papa Darrell and Super Girl save the day!
This is how you catch some air.
On to the Super Dad obstacle course. 
Ready, set, GO!
First the dad's were paired with kids, then they had to race themselves
and the kiddos thru the laser beam field without breaking a string.
Easier said than done with this crew.
Then they had to race back to the toy bin where the dad's had to
find 'the remote' before racing to the finish line.
Super Girl was one of the winners!
Super Grover flys through the air with the greatest of ease.
After the Super Dad agility contest Papa Darrell
gives the little heros a marksman lesson. 
Apparently those two run the town.
Great-Grandpa Joe stopped by to try his hulk cupcake,
 he used to be a ginger too you know.
Now off to save the world!
The End.

Farmer's Market

What's more perfect in the summer time than a playhouse and a farmer's market. Everett finally got his playhouse assembled (it's taken a while, he's only one and a half you know). Luke, Claire and Ava were more than ready to sell some goods they picked from the garden. (Pay no attention to the McDonald's cash register, I know it defeats the purpose, we just use what we have.) In all it turned out to be a day of fruit, veggies and fun.

The first ginger farmer's market is officially open for business.

Thankfully the gingers are their own best clients.
Everett pays for his apple but not before taking his first bite to make sure he's getting his money's worth.
Sporting his blue slicker boots and manly carrot apron.
If you want a basket of goodies you'll have to have the correct change.
There is nothing carrot tops love more than carrots.
Ava is really happy she just got  her  teeth.
Now for a sampling of some fresh cherries.
The one downside is that sometimes it takes a while for these two to ring up your items. But you are almost certain to get a heck of a deal in the end.
Heirloom seeds just 10 cents each, while supplies last.
On to the garden market to pick their own veggies and have a fantastic meal.

Giant turnip!
Claire tending to the garden.
Everett's turnip.
Now, it's time for a snack or two.

Berry parfaits.
Checking out the spread.
In watermelon heaven.
Thanks for visiting, come again!
