We have been LOVING this crazy July weather. We usually spend our evenings outdoors anyway, but the fact that we've had this weird "cool down" and have had temps in the 70's has been AMAZING! We love to take walks to the park or bike trail!
Brynn wanted to do it all! HA!
Emory LOVES to swing. Every single time her swing comes forward she makes this huge smiling face!
Brynn and I were having fun helping her climb through this tunnel and she really liked it...until she reached the middle and found some little rocks. This child puts EVERYTHING into her mouth...so we had to rescue her from eating all the gravel! HA!
We love walking (or running or bike riding) on the bike trail!
We usually pull Emory in the wagon, and she loves it. I'm not sure why we didn't bring it this particular day...but she loves the carrier too...even if she looks less than thrilled. =)
Oh and clearly Brynn and Ebby Lee had gotten into the dance costumes (surprise, surprise!).
The funniest part is that my mom tries to make it educational. They were supposed to find a card at each "spot" and find the card that had the opposite on it. Then they got to pick up that treasure. But of course with kids, they were just so excited about the little toys and running around the yard that we were all laughing and yelling after them "yeah, the opposite of old is young. The opposite of fast is slow!" HA!
Something else we've done a lot of this summer? Getting cake pops from Starbucks. We are usually out running errands/delivering cookies/leaving the gym around the time of Emory's morning nap. So we usually let her snooze in the car and finish our errands while she takes a quick nap. We usually drive through Starbucks and Brynn gets a cake pop or an apple juice and I get an iced coffee! This has become such a fun little part of our week!
Emory is a pretty messy eater!
But she cleans up pretty nice!
I just can't believe how big she's getting! Well, both girls really. Brynn is really starting to get the hang of riding her bike, and we usually have to run on the bike trail to keep up with her. She's learning how to use the brakes and she isn't scared to go down big hills anymore. (Now we just have to get her to swim by herself in the pool! AH!)
Loving this gorgeous weather and trying to soak it up!
