Saoirse's Visit/Happy Father's Day!

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted in so long; these past few weeks have been really busy! On Saturday, my new friend (and fellow blogger) Saoirse slept over! You can go read and follow her blog here! I didn't take many pictures while she was here, but this is one I took of us together right before she went home again.
We had a great time; we watched a movie called Thomas and the Magic Railroad, which made little to no sense and was pretty funny. It wasn't supposed to be like that, though. Saoirse's friends Kaya and Josefina also watched the movie and slept over too. I think we all had fun!

Sunday, of course, was Father's Day! I celebrated with my mom's friend (Skye) and her dad. After Saoirse, Kaya, and Josefina went home, we went to Winslow Park where some of Skye's family was camping for the weekend. It was right by the ocean, but was WAY to cold to swim, even though it's the middle of June!

                                                      This is me posing at their campsite.

Here's the view from their campsite! Isn't it amazing?
The green down by the water is all seaweed. I've always thought seaweed was pretty nasty, but my little brother loves to walk in it and throw it at me! 

I went with Skye and her cousins to play on the playground. There was an awesome pirate ship to play on.

Here I am on the bottom deck of the ship.
There was a fireman's pole that went from the top deck to the bottom. There were ladders and a slide too.

In this picture, I'm looking out a window on the bottom deck.

I decided to go scout out the top deck.
I'm on the top part of the prow, I think, here.

When we went back to the campsite, we roasted hot dogs over the fire. After that, we roasted marshmallows and made s'mores! I didn't take any pictures then because I was busy eating, and my fingers were really sticky.

After our long day, Skye and I finally went back to the base and got ready for bed. All that fresh air and playground playing had made us really tired!

In other news, I have my own Facebook page now! You can visit and "like" it here! I love having more fans!
Well, a happy belated Fathers day to you all! Did you do anything exciting to celebrate? What are your plans for the rest of the summer? I'd love to hear about them! 
This has been Dani, dabbling in being busy with friends and fathers during summer vacation! Over and out!


  1. Kaya, Josefina, and I had a lot of fun staying over at the base! Even watching "Thomas and the Magic Railroad" was fun, even though it didn't make much sense...

    That camp looks like a lot of fun! I can't get over how big that pirate ship is!

  2. That looks like a lot of fun! I love playing on those big ships at playgrounds and pretending that I'm the captain of a ship. Once Zoe and I pretended that the ship had hit an iceberg and was going down, and another time that it had been attacked by pirates and we had to fend them off!

    As for what I'm doing this summer, my family has a summer house near a big lake that we spend the whole summer at, swimming and hiking and going for bike rides! What would you think about coming up sometime this year? I'm thinking about getting a Facebook page myself sometimes soon, maybe we could organize it that way! :)
