Summer Fun

Well we are about one month into summer....and already have enjoyed our laid back schedule, being able to stay up a little later and sleep in a little longer!  We haven't made any major trips yet...but have just enjoyed being able to relax at home a bit!  Here's a little of what we have been up to so far this summer!

Sam simply idolizes Sophia.  And she is the best Mini Mommy EVER!

We made a little trip to Deanna Rose Petting Zoo before the weather got too hot after soccer camp one day!

Feeding the baby goats was so much fun!

Sophia learning how to brown butter for a chocolate chip cookie recipe.

We finally caught the ice cream truck on a perfect summer evening!

And of course trips out for ice cream are a MUST during the summer months! Here Sophia is after a day of VBS.

We have hit many parks, but Antioch park is definitely a fun one to visit!

And when we can't make it to the neighborhood pool...we just pull out the little pool in our backyard!  

And we've had a few picnics at the park...looking forward to lots of these this summer!

Summer is playing baseball in the yard...

Dinner on the patio....

Big boy swings at the park...

Another trip to the ice cream store...

Waiting for the rain to stop...

Head bandz game on rainy days...

Making Sidewalk Chalk paint.....whew...what a messy project!

Making Chia Pets and having outside story time...

Summer haircuts

And even trips to the mailbox (always with the lawnmower in tow) of course!

Hope you are all enjoying these lazy days of summer!!!

T ball

I thought for sure that Joseph would be dying to follow in the footsteps of his big sister and start soccer this spring.  But he kept routing for BASEBALL.  I LOVE I couldn't have been happier with his choice!  So began our T-ball days!

We were not thrilled with the purple jerseys that were assigned to their team, The Purple Spiders, but at least our coach is a true KU fan!

It's pretty funny to watch these little boys come out and bat for the first time.  It's funny how once they hit the ball...they are almost afraid to drop the bat and run to first.   It's funny to watch them in the outfield watching fire trucks go by while the other team bats.  It's funny watching them cheer their opposing teammates on as they run past their base.  So cute!

J is a pretty good little hitter.  He is a lefty.  I must do something to my children that makes them favor their left hands...b/c I think all three might be lefties!  We need to work on his catching and throwing a bit....but that will all come in time!

So excited to go to baseball games as he gets older.  I hope he loves it as much I used to love watching it.  Thea and I LOVED our Royals baseball cards.  So much in fact that I hid my prized George Brett card so well so Thea couldn't steal it ....that I never found it before we moved:(  Willie Wilson was her real hero anyway!  Hahaha!

Here's to a great season!  Go Purple Spiders!
