Bay Beach

Chalk Playdate

Isabel's friend Isaac gave her a chalk set with 3D chalk and chalk paint for her birthday, so she invited him & his youngest sister to come over for a playdate to use it. The chalk paint didn't last long, but they sure had fun with it.

Super Saturday

We started out our day with a trip to a (new-to-us) park for playtime & a picnic. Then to the barber shop for haircuts for daddy & Henry. Then the kids got to go to the candy store for a treat.

Then we came home and watched Gnomeo & Juliet while brother napped.

Then it was tim to play in the pool that we blew up & filled in the morning.

And in between all of that Isabel would play in her box house she made up. She had a "couch" and "bed" in it, some snacks, and a small couch & bed for baby dolly. This was all of her own creation.

And the day ended with roasted marshmallows. FINALLY! Isabel had been asking for about 2 months to have a campfire with roasted marshmallows and we have just not had good weather when we have been home, until now.

Baby Animal Day @ MHS

Beach Weather

These top two collages are from when we went to the beach as a family on Memorial Day. The water was a bit chilly for swimming, but the kids had a blast playing in the water and sand.

By 4 days later, the water was much warmer and we met one of our playgroups at the beach for some fun & the sun and water fighter. We brought some water balloons to share with others and have a water balloon fight. The water was warm enough to swim in. We thought about going back to the beach today, but have filled up our kiddie pool (larger size rectangle one) and have it warming in the sun to use this afternoon.

Isabel Graduates from Preschool

Isabel is not officially a a kindergartener. Such a bittersweet occasion. She is becoming such a big girl and so independent and is needing her mommy less and less. She is growing up too fast. I told her the other day she was going to be a kindergartener soon and after some dicussion about all the grades that come next I told her I wanted to keep her little forever, to which she told me she couldn't stay little and had to get bigger. And then I told her that she will grow up and go to college and move away and leave me. Then she told me, "Mommy, I'm not going to leave you. I can still live in MN and be a princess. I just need to find a castle." Awwww. My little princess. :)
