We've had some fun moments over the past week and a half. With the summer temps climbing and the humidity making it's dreaded debut, most of them have involved water. For example, we've discovered the joy of the "driveway sprinkler," which makes for some fun bike and scooter riding, as well as a cool place to sit after some hefty exercise.
And then there are Tim's famous tractor sled rides. When the extended family dropped by for a Memorial Day dinner, the cousins enjoyed this classic treat after cooling off in the kiddie pool.
We also found Annabell a bigger bike at a yard sale last weekend. It's actually a little too big for her, but Tim was able to find training wheels to make it usable. Liam was eager to help fine-tune his sister's new bike. Notice the excellent job he's been doing pulling up his big-boy underpants. (Liam, that is. Not Tim.)
This morning, Annabell and Liam had their friends Mina and Jed over to play. It was such a beautiful day that we decided to have a picnic lunch out back. It was adorable watching them eat together, the girls giggling and lost in conversation, while the boys focused on The Most Important Thing in the World: their food. Here are a few pics of their fine dining experience:
