Celebrating Sizdeh Bedar - the end of the Iranian New Year

If you don't understand the title, you can see more info on the Iranian New Year traditions here

On Saturday we got to spend the WHOLE day outdoors celebrating the last day of the Iranian New Year (NowRooz) with friends and family.  There's a lot of pics in this post, but it was just too hard to narrow down anymore!!

These sprouts have been growing for about 2 weeks, started from beans, we have watched them grow in anticipation for their release!!!

 Beautiful sisters!

 Darian, the sprouts and his lovely headset

And there they go!  If you're not married, you tie a knot in the sprouts and make a wish!

 Marlee and Baba deep in thought by the water

 Justin and Shauna got to join us for the day!  

 Me and my love!

 Walker traveling through the field in style.  I think they were seeking some shade!

Auntie Shauna being admired by Marlee 

Swing Time! 

 one of my favorite pics from the day!

 We played cards...

 ate LOTS of delicious food...

 here's my plate!  I cleaned it for sure!

 lots of resting for little Marlee

and lots of attention too

 Shayda worked on wrapping her earbuds - they turned out so pretty!

walker and daddy "re-waxing"

 the men did manly things.  threw knives, grilled burgers and solved most of the world's problems

 getting me some mama love!

here's the crew!

the weather, the food and the company was perfect!  

We gave the kids wipey baths, headed home around 7:30 and that's when things got interesting!  I smashed/sliced my finger in the seat lever of the car, and was pretty sure I was going to die, and shortly after Marlee projectile vomited all over Shauna and the back seat.  We turned around, got cleaned up at the gas station and headed home - again!  I drank a chocolate Chick-fil-A milkshake and there was peace on earth once again.  There are photos to document these events, but I'll spare you and let you enjoy the "everything-went-perfect-that-day" photos!
