for summer solstice we splashed at a splash pad,
We wanted to spend as much time together before Roy left for his week long scout trip so we took the train down town the weekend before and just did whatever we felt like. The church history museum had a fun children's exhibit that the kids spent lots of time playing in.
Roy's campsite was closer then usual this year, so he invited us up to have dinner one night. It started raining when we got there, but the kids were not thwarted by it and happily ate their watermelon and hotdogs.
The 4th of July was as exciting as ever. We have discovered a sweet spot for the Riverton parade that is right at the beginning, and in the shade...it's well worth showing up an hour before hand just to see the littles in total rapture of it all. E was particularly stoked this year!
Meg has been doing tumbling this summer, and if you know her at all, you know she is in total bliss. She often asks if she can get her "tard" (leotard) on and go to tumbling.
being so busy, everything else has taken a back seat, including my yard and garden. The weeds are growing aplenty, and when I finally spent 5 minutes and walked through it, I found three GIANT zucchinis nestled under the giant leaves of the squash plant and two decent sized cukes. E gladly took one from me and ate it straight up. Sadly this past week we were told by city officials not to eat our garden produce because our secondary water has been contaminated by a toxic algae bloom...yeah... we totally missed the boat on that one.
