{Summer List} Update!

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Summer sure is flying bye, I’m so glad we’ve made the most of this summer weather while we could!

We’ve checked off a few more things!

pick berries: we took a wagon ride down the street to pick some blueberries at a small local farm. we didn’t pick much but the boys had fun finding and eating the berries!






we went to timber town as a family a few weeks ago after we dropped of Grayden’s enrollment papers to his school




that place is so big and the boys wander off so fast, i was glad to have robb along for an extra set of eyes!


we got a new bike seat for sadler to ride in, but of course he prefers the trailer, at least Gray like it!
we’re hoping to do more bike riding as a family!

the boys don’t get to  play on the swing set and sand box quite as much as they’d like to because this happens:


I’m hoping in the next few years the sand throwing and kicking will stop and we can enjoy it a little more often!




they love playing restaurant by the counter, grayden is annoyed with me in this picture because I asked him for breadsticks and he said he only has pizza and broccoli at his restaurant! i bet business is booming for him!
