July has been a bit of a quiet month on the blog, but for good reason...we've been OUTSIDE!! Doing all the summer things, of course! Here are a few highlights from the last month...
LOTS of fun times at the splash pad...it has been such a treat being able to meet up with all of our teacher friends & their kiddos here while school has been out.
I always manage to forget something whenever we go, so if it's not diapers or toys, it's another important tidbit, like, the weather forecast. See ominous clouds rolling into the background. This photo was snapped mere moments before a major downpour.
Yankee Doodle Pop-poppin' with Ruby! This one has become a favorite 4th of July tradition.
Wayde's work sponsored an Adventureland day for all employees & their families last month. I couldn't believe that it had been over 10 years since my last visit to the park! And we had a blast. My girl was so brave on all the thrill rides. Tickly tummies, FTW!
So, this happened. Sterling shut the Infant Ocean down when he shimmied out of his restraint on the boat. He almost made it out the back of the boat before Daddy & an Adventureland attendant got to him. This boy can't be contained! Seriously, everu time I put him in some kind of harness is a battle...
We checked out Family Day at Prairie Meadows for their annual Zebra/ Camel/ Ostrich races, but left before getting to see any of those. It was my fault for not bringing any sunscreen, but it was taking FOREVER between the sprints. Maybe we'll try again next year...
Wayde has become sort of obsessed with gardening this year, so him & Sterling have spent a fair amount of time frequenting area greenhouses. I will say that our yard is looking pretty dang sharp though!
In addition to all the landscape details, Daddy installed a swing for the kids' birthdays. We even got a baby bucket swing to switch out so Sterling can enjoy it, too. I'll admit, I even love swinging on it as much as the kids!
So, that's a little bit of what we've been up to. August is looking to be just as busy with a couple new business ventures, the State Fair, some foreign exchange students we'll be entertaining, a family wedding, and hopefully, a few minutes to blog about it! xx
