Our kids are full of adventure and June was no exception. There was a new park built by our house recently, so the kids and I thought it would be fun to check out. We loved that it was unique from the other parks in our area. Egan met some boys to play with while we were there and they made the whole thing into an obstacle course. It's been too hot to go back much, but we look forward to Fall so the plastic and metal play things won't be so hot!
Sloane checking out her baking.
Egan and I were doing some cooking one afternoon and put on our aprons. Sloane insisted I put hers on as well.
Sometimes Sloane has a tough time waking up from a nap. This day she just snuggled us for a bit.
Look, there's a Karate guy at the gas station!
Here are 6 of the "little" kids from playgroup all having lunch together while the big kids were at vbs. We pretty much had a week of playgroup for the littles, and the big kids loved getting to be in class together. It was a win all around. :)
We visited the "Recycle Reef" exhibit at the Perot Museum on Father's Day weekend. The idea behind the exhibit is taking recycled materials and recreating them into under sea creatures… as art. Egan of course requested that we make a "cuttlefish". Where he comes up with ideas like this, I'll never know, but he insisted. Top left: Egan and Blake hard at work. Top right: a picture of a cuttlefish (or something similar) for reference. Bottom left: Showing the work of art to Sloane. Bottom right: the cuttlefish in his new environment.
After we did our thing at Recycle Reef, we turned the kids loose in the play area. Sloane can move FAST, and wants nothing to do with baby play areas… of course!
Remember that old show "cat dog"? This is our kids best interpretation of it.
This right here sums up her personality so well.
This does a pretty good job of it too. She loves her "Bubba".
I painted my table and chairs back in May and I just love how it freshened up the room. I've been collecting plates for a while now and finally got enough to hang them up. Egan doesn't get the whole "plates as decor" thing (and neither does his dad), but I'm thankful the guys in my life humor me and my crazy ideas.
In fact, when Egan first saw the plates hanging up, he said, "Mom, why are there all these plates on the wall? Did you want to make a plate rainbow? Why didn't you put a plate int he middle?" He never stopped to wait for an answer. He was so puzzled.
We had some buddies over to play and eat lunch. They must have played hard because not a one of them let out a peep.
Sometimes Sloane has crazy hair when she wakes up.
The playgroup made a trip to an airplane museum. We had about 14 kids with us and I think each one of them was in awe.
They even got to sit in this helicopter! Talk about BIG TIME!
"You will see here…" (Egan talks like he KNOWS IT ALL to his friends.)
I can't remember why Sloane is just in a diaper, but somewhere we went… she didn't make it home with clothes. Sweet smile.
We hit a mall that isn't our normal one. Egan's eyes really lit up when we told him he could ride the carousel!
He also got to try See's candy. YUUUUM!
We went on an evening walk to QuikTrip for a drink. Egan on his bike, Sloane in the stroller. I promise she was having fun. She just takes her job as DIVA of the fam very seriously.
Egan showing off his screech mark on our way home. He's a proud boy!
Again… sunglasses… serious. This time with a computer.
Sloane skipped kissing a frog and went right for a chameleon.
That pretty much sums up June! Lots of fun on the go and at home.
