Well I think I can say we are offically in SUMMER mode. The girls and I literally have nothing but time on our hands and we are taking advantage of every minute. You can see from the pictures below that our week was full and fun!
We headed to what the girls call "The Beach Park" aka Fanuel Park with Bailey for some sandcastle building, bay water swimming, swinging, and picnicing. It was a great way to start the week!
We decided to stay home on Tuesday since the rest of our week was full, but that did not mean for a second these ladies were slowing down. Their trains got a 'trainwash' in the splash table while mommy tried to clean the house. After lunch the girls met up with their buddy (our neighbor) Boston and made a super cool bicycle course out of sidewalk chalk which included a gas station, a bike wash, a candy shop, and parking spaces.
Mom had a work meeting, but that didn't stop these little water babies from having fun. While our instructional leadership team met at our Pricipal's house to prepare some things for next school year, all the kids had a blast swimming, watching movies, and playing with each other's toys.
The girls and I met Uncle Mark, Auntie Missi, Aiden, Liam, Amy, and Ella at the Santee Aquatics Center- So COOL! It makes me wish I was a kid again. Though they don't let you take pictures inside, I had to steal this from google images beacuse it's that cool. After 3 hours of non-stop water play we had a picnic in the shade. Uncle Mark and family had to escape a bit early as Liam was in dire need of a nap.
Friday was one of our favorite days- we spent the morning hours on Cornado Beach- North Island with Emma. The beach was almost empty and the waves were just perfect for the girls to explore. It was so peacefull. We spent lots of time hunting for shells, running in waves, building sandcastles and best of all we did some shopping afterwards at the Navy Exchange-needless to say the girls got hooked up with some new clothes. Lola was in need of some bigger pants- she is now a size 4T!
We all headed to one of Tony's bestfriends family picnic. Chris, Sonja, Byrce, and Solana were the hosts. The girls were mostly concerned with swiging and eating all the cookies at the desert table, I don't blame them.
This picture of Tony and Lola sums up our week pretty well!
As you can imagine, the girls have been sleeping pretty hard these days!
(I failed to mention that we had swim lesson in the evening Monday- Thursday of this week too)
....and it's not even July yet!
