First bit of our SUMMER!

Summer so far has been awesome for the following reasons...
  ~ NOT rushing out of the house by 7:30
  ~ Staying in our jammies later than we should
  ~ Playdates with friends
  ~ Visits to the park
  ~ Art projects
  ~ Gymboree

We have been keeping busy, and summer has started off really well!  Annabelle did have a fever at the beginning of last week, and was a bit sick, but the rest of the week made up for it.  My kiddos are developing a really sweet relationship right now, and it is really neat to watch.  I know that other parents with more than one child have seen this, and I am now soaking up every moment of it.  They laugh and play together more, and wherever Annabelle goes, Carter is not too far behind.  It's just the beginning, and I am excited to see this little sibling relationship grow brick by brick.



I have been jogging again with both kiddos, which I haven't done in a while.  It has added a bit of a challenge physically, but it has also been awesome.  I did NOT think I was going to like running with both of them at all.  But, it has been great for all three of us.  I often stop to take pictures because I run on a super gorgeous trail not to far from my house.  Here is one of my fave pics from one of our jogs...

Painting a BLUE letter B.
Cute cute cute to watch all three of these cuties play.
Painting a blue butterfly.  (last week was "blue week" when it came to projects. I have decided to keep Annabelles wheels turning in her little head during the summer by adding a little theme to every week.  Each week, we are focusing on a certain color, letter, shape and animal for the whole week.  Should be fun!)
Annabelle was fixing carter's hair in the pool. :)
JAMMIES all morning. 
Carter lifting weights.
Playing dress up with my scarf.
She was SO excited to be in Gymboree today!  It's been a while since we were there, and she loved it the same as she did before.  :)
We went to a play date at a park the other day and Annabelle decided to play in the water in her clothes.  I thought she would spend all her time on swings and in the sand, so I did not bring her suit.  Luckily, I did have a change of clothes in the car.
