Not too long ago we found some super cool snails and salamanders out back .
Isn't it so cool how he blends in so well?
Over Memorial Day weekend we headed down to spend some time with Bumpa and Kathy on Anna Maria. And boy did we have a great time--treats were flowing like water down there!!
We spent some time at the beach too, Khera found some delicate clam shells.
Daddy, Bumpa and the kids watched some Scholastic movies with the kids, their favorite was Trashy Town. Bumpa loved it so much, I might have heard him singing the songs later that weekend.
Of course you know the trains came along on our journey...they always do!
Bumpa and Kathy got the girls some crayons and coloring books to keep them busy when they were not in the pool.
Speaking of the pool, they went in at least twice a day. Kathy took them out several times and I was so thankful for the break.
As always, we had a great time and are looking forward to their next visit.
We had to hit the road and get ready for the last week of school...
Tommy's end of school party was a water day out on the playground.
I think he had a good time, don't you?
We hit up Fantastic Sam's for a quick summer cut, I was thankful to put an end to morning, post-swim and evening hair battle that comes with longer hair.
No more mop for shaggy (sniff-sniff).
Elle's end of year party was at a bowling alley and the kids really had a blast.
Khera's end of year party was a bunch of relay races in the gym because the weather was not cooperating. Nonetheless she had a great time and she is pleased to report that the girls beat the boys at tug-of-war twice in a row!
We've been making lots of plans for this summer and are so looking forward to getting back to OH to catch up with friends and family.
