Not a date with my husband and I.... but instead, a long anticipated date between Daddy and Ivy. For Christmas, Greg's parents got him his most favorite-est present to date- his very own BRIGHT RED CANOE! Daddy is one who loves the outdoors and really has a passion for all things nature- camping, fishing, canoeing, hiking, etc. He feels that it is so important for him to be able to share this with his girl(s). So he has been building up this canoe trip since December. Ivy and him have walked around in life jackets, played "river" with the canoe parked in the back yard, paddled in the grass, fished into thin air. So when the spring weather arrived they were ready! Daddy surprised Ivy with her very own paddle and a new bucket to collect rocks and water in. This morning was the perfect last morning of spring break and a perfect day for an outing in the canoe. It was a date that Daddy and Ivy will not forget!
