We had a beautiful stretch of weather for about a week recently. We took advantage of it - trips to the park, going for bike rides/walks, and just playing outside more.
We met up with some good friends at Como Zoo one day, as well. Some days, the kids seem to get a little more 'up close & personal' with the animals vs other days - this was definitely one of those good days! This was our first zoo trip this year. I knew Lydia would be pointing at everything, "oooh - oooh," and that she was. She wanted nothing to do with sitting in the stroller - she was off with the big boys :)

She really thought she could pet him :)
This was one Saturday morning trip to the park with the whole family. Lydia took a few trips down the slide like this, but unfortunately the last one ended with a face full of mulch, poor thing :(
Henry finished up his first swimming lesson session at Foss. He is just a completely different kid in the water since starting lessons here - in a good way! His sudden fear of water is gone, thank God!! He LOVES going to swimming each week now.
One day after class he got to pick out some new goggles and now busts them out at home from time to time, as well! The kid loves any kind of costume, that's for sure.
Monkey see, monkey do, right?! If he's got a costume of some sort on, well, of course, so does she! Here she is, on her way up to take a nap (yep, still in pj's)!
Not sure why I do this to myself, as this is one hefty mess to clean up! Some mornings, she wants to have a smoothie just like me. I never fight it, as it's definitely the only way she'll eat a green veggie! Any other green veggie in its whole form usually lands on the ground.
Lucy - poor Lucy hasn't gotten any props in a long time. Here's Henry, just giving the girl a "boat ride." Doesn't she look like she's having fun?! Lucy tolerates a lot, but does get a lot of love too, in the form of table scraps from these two :) I really couldn't ask for a more sweet and gentle dog to be around kids. She's so good to them!
