Archie is so full of energy and CRAZY RUNNING EVERYWHERE ALL THE TIME, so it was perfect when he discovered how fun soccer is. I think we have a budding star on the rise!!
One of my favorite things about summer is summer storms: lightening, thunder, rain, wind and hail!! This is NOT Elliott's favorite part of summer though. During these storms, he gets very nervous. But, we found a solution for him: his happy place. He goes into the pantry and watches a video wrapped in a snuggly blanket with the door closed...problem solved!
This is how Archie rolls :)
In May, we were able to go to Pocatello, ID for my niece's wedding!! Look how beautiful Breana looks! Lucy's not looking so bad either!
Archie was looking pretty dapper too...until he found a mud puddle to slip around in! Luckily, his 8 month old cousin had an extra pair of pants he could slip on; poor little Archie, will he never grow out of those 6-12 month old pants!!
Elliott was the star of the show with his little boy cousins, as usual!!! He loves, them, and who wouldn't?!?! They're so cute!
First ice-cream truck of the year, and Archie's first ice-cream truck EVER!! Luckily, a Bullet Pop is dairy free, and if I remember right, it is Gramma Karen's favorite treat too! Archie approves!
This summer I had big dreams of our family running, walking or biking 100 miles. We would gather together as a family, Mike and I in our running shoes, Archie in his stroller, and Lucy and Elliott on their bikes, and we would hit the green belt together! That was before my back went out again, but we are still pushing through! If we make it, we will get to go to the local water park, a treat the kids have never gotten to do!
We started out with a 5 mile roundtrip walk to McDonald's to celebrate Memorial Day weekend, a tradition I used to do with my family when I was younger.
All this fun, and school wasn't even out yet!!! This is the kids on their last day of school. How they've grown!
The kids have always wanted me to bring them lunch at school and join them in the cafeteria, and finally, on the last day of school, it happened!! Even better, Aunt Juliet was visiting and she joined us!!! BEST LAST OF SCHOOL SURPRISE EVER!!!
All right, that about covers it...now onto summer break!!! Fun runs, water plays, marathons and road trips!!
