Summer is Here!!

I was very thankful that this week, summer decided to officially make an appearance, just in time for the end of school. We had all sorts of fun adventures this week including a couple of trips to Terrace View Pool, Kindergarten play days, a trip to Pavilion Park to enjoy the water with some ward families, our cousin Sarah's 6th Birthday party and arts and crafts with the Spokane Valley Parks Department. There were lots of fun things to do to keep everyone occupied. Here are some pictures from our various adventures.

All the kids had a great time. Cassie went over to Grandma's this week and had some spaghetti

She loves spaghetti, can you tell? Luckily we took her clothes off before we fed it to her. On Thursday we got to call Michelle Nowels for her birthday. I think the kids told her she looked like a gorilla and smelled like one too. Hopefully she understands that they only say that to people they really love!!

Summer and Tower of Terror

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring..... This is ridiculous. We get a week of great weather in early May and now we have this. With T minus 4 days of school left, the weather had better shape up quickly or parents all over Spokane will go insane. My kids are so desperate for outdoor activity that they were jumping on the trampoline in the pouring rain today. It's usually a really fun thing to do, but not when it is only 45 degrees. I would have pictures, but I decided that I wasn't going to go stand in the cold rain to get a few pictures. It just wasn't worth it. Play Day is on Wednesday. I am in charge of the water balloon toss. Sure. It better get warmer very quickly.

Preston told me today he was wearing his "I survived the Tower of Terror" T-shirt because he wanted to be back at Disneyland. He said "Hey mom. can't we just go get on the plane and fly there?" I explained that since I don't work for the airline anymore, we can't just go. He then proceeded to tell me that I needed to go back to work "...because Tower of Terror is more fun than riding my bike." Well, I couldn't really argue. ToT really is more fun than riding a bike, although I am not going back to work. I'd really like to go ride Big Thunder, but that's a whole other story!! So this picture is for Preston. We'll go soon buddy!!
