We’re Loving Summer!

Story told by: Lainey

We’ve had such a great summer so far! (Mommy just realized that it’s the first summer since 2011 that she hasn’t either been really sick from the first trimester of pregnancy or had a new baby. She’s LOVING it!!) Here are some pictures from the last week or so.

We love meeting Daddy after work to go to the park and have a picnic!

Ice cream date with Nora and Lucy!

We had our friends, Emma and Cole (and their mommy, Chelsea), come stay with us for a few days. We had a fun movie night together the first night they were here.

Henry and Cole share a love for trains! (Cole is 3, so he plays well with Henry. Emma is 5, so she plays well with me. Their mommy has another boy due in October, so Brody will soon have a playmate.)

We got in lots of outside time with our friends!

Investigating some bugs on the tree.

We went to the new splash pad at Reaney Park one afternoon.

We had other friends meet us there as well. Henry had fun with Mya.

And so did I!

Daddy was working while we were at the splash pad, so Mya’s daddy was a huge help with Brody!

We had a picnic with all of our friends after the splash pad.

Emma and I got our nails done (and Henry didn’t want to be left out, so Mommy painted one fingernail for him).

We also had some great teamwork for my 48-piece floor puzzle.

All done!

This is what Brody does while Mommy is in the shower. Looks like it’s time to put up the gate!

We met up with friends for bowling and dinner one evening.

Mommy thinks our little bowling shoes are just the cutest!

I’ve been asking to go bowling for the last month, so I’m thrilled that it’s finally happening!

There it goes!

Brody got to bowl for the first time ever!

The kids are cheering on Chelsea, who at six-months pregnant got a strike. Well done!

Molly had to walk down the lane to get a ball that stopped halfway down.

And so did Chelsea. These young kids don’t always have the power to get the ball all the way to the end of the lane.

Brody walked around cheering everyone on.

I was pretty darn excited about my spare!

One weekend afternoon, Henry and I washed our car while Daddy washed his cars. We made a great team!

Later that day we went to see “Finding Dory” (while Brody stayed with a friend). I’ve seen the movie already at a friend’s birthday party, but it was the first time for everyone else.

Making silly faces for the camera.

We loved every moment of the movie (and the popcorn didn’t hurt the experience either)!

This morning our church had its service down on the Snake River. Daddy was a great pack mule for all of our stuff!

Singing worship songs.

We went up with Pastor Terry to listen to a children’s message before he started his sermon.

After a picnic lunch, we went swimming in the river!

The big hit, though, was playing in the sand.

And eating the sand.

Daddy also tried to help us dig a hole to China, but we didn’t quite make it. After hours of swimming, we passed out on the way home. Excited for a fun 4th of July tomorrow!
