Today begins the 1st day of Summer! We celebrated by having a picnic at the free Splash Pad in town and making it home just in time for it to downpour!
Lauren loves visiting Blackberry Farms (similar to Living History Farms in Iowa) on their free days. They offer free pony rides, hay rides, train rides, a carousel, and many other fun "3 year old" things!
We were joined by many of our friends. Here are Friend Ethan and Olivia...not to be confused with Cousins Ethan and Olivia!
Going down the slide together, she is such a great helper!
Entertaining Miles by pushing and pulling him around
Boxes and Laundry Baskets, we should really sell all our toys.
Lauren started swimming lessons. It is awesome that the teacher comes to you so we met at a friend's relative's house for our "private lessons".
She loves being in the water
Miles sat on the edge and watched. Next summer he wants in!
Speaking of Miles, he must have been watching my attempts at a pull-up and tried for himself.
Lots of park adventures, love having a park within walking distance of our house. Hopeful that our next place will as well.
I said goodbye to AWESOME social work co-workers
The whole support staff: social workers, psychologists, and 1 counselor
Lauren has perfected her pumping and now only needs help getting on and a starter push
Going to really miss "Music Under the Stars" in our Town Square on Friday nights
Lauren was so lucky to receive this "ice cream treat" from Grandpa Larry; I put that in quotes because the ingredients actually said frozen confectioners sugar...blech!
Going to miss watching these girls establish relationships with each other
And the littles are going to miss each other too!
Miles was "sleep-awake" in the picture so we had to capture it. If you missed my post on that, Lauren created that word to describe a similar feeling to what most people say is "LaLa Land".
Grateful for summer and getting to be a seasonal stay-at-home mom, looking forward to the next month in Illinois before venturing to Iowa.
