It has been a few weeks since I have shared any photos, so here is what we have been up to lately:
Aislynn made a little bed for Kieran from the laundry basket and was pretending he was her baby:)
If someone left him on my front porch, I would definitely keep him;)
When my Mom and James (and Aunt "Bwin") were here for the weekend before the 4th, A read the bedtime stories to everyone:)
The only picture I got on the 4th...
milk shake's from Shake's
It's really a good thing we don't live too close...we would definitely be going there lots:)
a picnic with Elmo
I have taken the kids here (Deer Lake State Park) before by myself, but we didn't walk all the way down to the lake. Shaun came with us, so we trekked down to where the lake was. One of the things that makes 30-A quite unique are these coastal lakes. Sometimes they are open to the gulf, but it looks like Deer Lake had been closed off for awhile. They are a mix of salt and fresh water, so there are all kinds of fish/rays/crabs in them. We like going to the beach access points that have lakes by them because they are perfect spots for the kids to play. There are no waves and they are shallow and calm. Also, this time of year there is lots of sea weed in the gulf, yuck:(
I actually handed over the camera to Shaun;)
Isn't it pretty? We pretty much had the whole beach to ourselves too:)
We made a drip castle city:) Drip castles are when you take a big scoop of wet sand in your hands and let it drip through your fingers in a big hill:)
As you can see in the background, A and Shaun had a water fight.
A had brought along one of her My Little Ponies, so apparently Scootaloo was made queen;)
It was rainy for quite a few days in a row, so we had to think up things to do in the house...like build forts.
and paint:) Aislynn said this was an abstract painting:)
According to Aislynn, they were playing "scientists" :)
and Miss A showing me all kinds of fancy jumps;)
Other things we have been up too: going to visit Aunt Brynne and Sean's new place, Papa watching the kids so that Shaun and I could go see Harry Potter, baking cookies, more homemade popsicles, and Aislynn lost her second tooth...pictures coming soon of her new smile:)
In 2 weeks, we will be going to kindergarten orientation, eek?! Is the summer really almost over? Next week I am doing Week in the Life, so see ya'll Monday:)
Have a wonderful weekend!
