June has come and gone already!?! These two are keeping me busy this summer!
We try to eat as many of our meals outside as possible. Usually lunch is a picnic in the front yard and dinner is out back on the deck. After dinner, we always run around down on the grass, doing airplane rides and playing tag!
The day of Henry's birthday party, Auntie Sonja invited us to Valleyfair. The company she works for was having Family Day there. It was such a blast!! Henry was the perfect height for all the rides in Planet Snoopy. I don't think he even had to wait in line for any of the rides that day either - bonus! It was a hot one that day, so Phil and Henry sure enjoyed the water park as well.
Lydia even got in on the action! "Ride, ride, ride!"
We took part in National Donut Day this year with a trip to Hans' Bakery in Anoka. Old Fashioneds, both chocolate frosted and sugar coated, still warm even - nomnom.
I think this was the first year in quite a few where it was a nice day outside for Grand Old Day in St. Paul! We took in the parade with friends, then the kids had a fun afternoon on all the bouncy houses and of course, plenty of treats!
Henry got a new tennis racket from Oma & Opa for his birthday. We have some great tennis courts right in our development, that we've biked to a few times now. He's really liking it!
Miss Fashionista, just a regular day at the park for her!
Henry had some help from Grandma making Daddy his fantastic Fathers Day cards this year!
These two have been loving their evening strolls together, that's for sure!
We made a bucket list for all the activities we wanted to do this summer, and having a Lemonade Stand was on it! He strategically placed himself right on the corner of the sidewalk, in order to catch people coming from 2 directions - smart guy. He even threw in a fudge striped cookie with every glass of lemonade :)
I took this picture on the first day that the beach in our development was open! We've enjoyed quite a few more beach days since then, as well.
Auntie Jackie came to visit us earlier this summer. One day, we made a trip out to Stillwater to play at Teddy Bear Park, have lunch at Leo's, and take a walk along the great St. Croix River.
And this is how we've been spending most of our afternoons here. Water table, kiddie pool, squirt gun buckets, and sprinklers. What more could you need for an afternoon of fun in the sun?!
