|Swim Lessons: M-Th, 9:00 am - 10:15 am|
Zach is a "Torpedo"
Allie is in the grade school "Level 3"
|Zach's Favorite Part of Swim Lessons: "I like everything best...I like being in the water!"|
Allie's Favorite Part of Swim Lessons: "Going off the diving board all by myself with no one to catch me. Playing games."
|Olivia's Favorite Part of Swim Lessons: Eating Snacks|
|In fact, as soon as the kids jump in the water, she requests her snack. |
And then she points to the pool and screams, "MY TURN!!!"
|Thrilled with the impromptu carousel ride after a picnic lunch at the outlet mall while back-to-school clothes shopping.|
|'Tis the season for school supply purchasing. In addition to gathering all necessary supplies, I also ambitiously labeled them with Allie's name.|
|Then, I spent the better part of the afternoon sharpening 60 pencils.|
|Cooler, less humid Friday afternoon = perfect time for a bike ride.|
|On our way to the park|
|Olivia is ready to catch me as I come down the slide!|
|The girls playing outside with chalk.|
|The kids made a choo-choo train out of the patio chairs. I'm not sure why Zach needs a croquet stick to be the conductor.|
|Lots of fun on the choo-choo (obviously this was before I confiscated the wooden croquet stick) while waiting for Daddy to get home from work so we could go out for pizza!|
|Finally cool enough for a back yard camp fire!|
|Sugaring up with raw marshmallows before roasting them to make smores.|
|In fact, I'm not sure why we even bother with the fire and smores because all they really want to do is eat the entire bag of raw marshmallows.|
|Smores ready and gone!|
|Obviously, I needed some caffeine or more of those marshmallows.|
|Grandma and Grandpa took the kids to Fort Snelling on Saturday. While they were enjoying a "boisterous" picnic lunch, Ben and I were enjoying a peaceful lunch over quiet conversation at CRAVE in Golden Valley.|
