Isaac has been awesome and rides his bike 15 miles each way to work and home almost everyday so the kids and I can go play. If that doesn’t make him husband/father of the year I don’t know what does! So most days we wake up and get our morning things done and then around ten we go play. Luckily the people here are awesome and I’ve made a good friend who has invited us over to their awesome house and parks to play. We’ve also been going to the summer movie program at Cinemark and the kids have been in heaven. Nathan now gets so excited when he sees the theater with a little yay! You can tell they don’t get to watch a lot of TV when my two year old gets so excited!
So here is a little onslaught of pictures of what the kids and I have been up to this summer since I don’t want to split them up into separate blogs.
Our family celebrated National donut day with some of Bristol’s last (intentional) gluten.
We’ve made some friends and gone to several play dates at some awesome parks.
We’ve gone on Sunday drives every Sunday to explore the area we may be moving back to. Gorgeous huh?!
Bristol has really gotten into dressing herself everyday. It is a battle I’m not willing to fight and she generally does a really good job! Granted she wears dresses A LOT and this being her favorite!
The kids and I explored Shawnee Mission Park which is awesome! We’ve since taken Isaac back several times and enjoyed ourselves very much. They have a beach to swim and play at, dock, fishing, an AWESOME dog park, a lookout tower (pictured above), little hiking trails, playgrounds, mountain biking, archery, and a model airplane flying field. I’m sure there is more I’m missing, the point is that there are always fun things to do there!
The kids are finally back to being good and staying in their room at bed time. And I always love giving them a kiss before I go to bed, this was how I found them one night. It makes my heart so happy!
We’ve been enjoying the amount of rain we get and the cooler weather. Just this week we experienced days that had highs of 72! Being pregnant I’m in heaven on those days!
We visited this other awesome park called Deanna Rose Park. It is free and everything inside is super cheap because it volunteer run. The kids had a blast! Especially feeding the baby goats. I love the picture that captures Bristol telling the other goat to not come near because it isn’t their turn :)
We didn’t bring our double stroller so these two have gotten really creative!
We celebrated cow appreciation day at Chick fil a for the first time. The kids loved it! Bristol thought it was hilarious and loved sticking my spots on me.
More Sunday exploring! We’ve ALL been loving that we have early church and then no other meetings so we get to spend time together on Sundays.
And here they are again being best buddies! They’ve been playing a lot of “mom and dad” pretending to take care of their babies. It is so sweet to watch, especially with the number of times a day my kids ask to kiss their baby brother.
And Nathan showing off his favorite toys. His animals that his sister gave him for Christmas and the helicopter the Uncle Daniel gave him while in St Louis with us. He will probably add several more to his favorite list after his birthday this Sunday.
This video is long, but I love watching them play. Mornings they have the best imaginations and I needed to capture a little bit! I mean after all its them using those imaginations right now that lets me blog!
