Lazy Father's Day weekend

It was a good weekend.

On Saturday we went to a kid's birthday party and had a great time. As usual in Los Angeles, there was a pinata and the girls made out like bandits. Here's their loot:

This morning I woke up and was greeted by the girls and their gifts. Very sweet. I even got a chance to talk to my father today. He's been in Sri Lanka doing charity work for several weeks and I assumed I wouldn't be able to get in contact with him. He's doing well and I'm anxious to see him.

We played around outside and I took the training wheels off Mira's bike. She had no problem riding a two wheeler. We rode around the neighborhood, played with some friends and generally goofed around.

Later in the afternoon, we went up to Bailey Canyon for a picnic and a hike. We ate at the base of the park and girls started to get excited about the hike.

We headed on into the wilderness looking and talking about everything. We saw plenty of lizards and other wild creatures. The girls were digging the tromp through the underbrush and could have gone farther before we turned back. We will definitely be doing more hiking soon.

On the way out, we saw a few deer munching grass nearby.

A good day to be a father.
