Weekend Fun

We visited 3 playgrounds (1 of them twice).
This was the only one where I took pictures.
It was very hot and muggy, but the kids didn't care.
Kate, the climber
Madison walked all the way to the top!
Swinging with Mommy

Cousin Rachel and Owen were there...
Owen, at the top......sliding down...

Great-Gramma Mimi

Karina and I took her kids on a three-day trip to Great-Gramma Mimi's house in Minnesota. It was an adventure from start to finish. Thank you, G-ma Mimi for all you do! (More pictures to follow.... I need to get some rest...)

After the Rain...

It was too wet to play in the sandbox, so Kate played on it.
Madison thought splashing in the puddles was the BEST.
Reiley cannot sit still when there's a deck to be mopped.
"Hey, you guys! I just saw something strange in the kitchen."
"Ha ha ha, Look at Papi!"
Silly Papi with dog ears.

Don't work too hard on your Special Day (wink, wink)

It's Officially Summer...

A Rolling Stone...

...gathers no moss, so they say.

There's no moss growing under these happy feet.
Luke & Madison especially enjoy kicking up the dust.
(I think it's the dust that's been gathering on this blog... I've been much too busy these days.)

My blogger friend, Corry, has an amazing, God-given talent. Well, she has more than one talent, but I'm talking about her pencil drawings. My collection is now complete! At least until we add another grandchild... hee hee!
Go visit Corry's Scribbles here. You won't be disappointed.
Thank you, Corry, for sharing your wonderful talent.
