Summer is officially here and we are so ready for it! For us, summer is exploring and being out and about. May and June are nice because usually the weather is not oppressively hot yet.
A few weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon we headed out to Oak Park Mall to check out the new Lego store since Robert is fascinated with Legos. It was awesome. Every size, shape, color and collection of Legos you could imagine. We picked up a new kit and some odds and ends pieces. Robert was thrilled, it’s his new favorite store!
We’ve had our first trip to World’s of Fun. Robert still loves the big rides that go fast the best. So happy he is finally tall enough to ride one of the big roller coasters. And would happily ride it over and over and over.
Memorial Day weekend was all about friends and family. On Saturday, our friends Scott and Amy got married in a lovely outdoor ceremony. It was a casual wedding and had a bit of a Hawaiian theme to it. Amy was a beautiful bride.
Robert enjoyed playing on the large rock that was by the shelter. To him, it became a space ship.
It was warm out so Robert and Clark decided to cool off in the misters.
After the wedding we headed out to my friend Gail’s house for an evening of BBQ and swimming. They had ribs and chicken and all the sides. It was delicious. Robert loved the pool and steadily got more used to the water as the night went on. He starts swimming lessons next week.
After swimming Steve started a fire with Robert’s supervision and we had s’mores. Robert decided he did not like s’mores.
We sat by the fire talking and having a great time. Robert went to sleep.
He woke up when we were leaving and told Gail, “We’ll be back tomorrow”.
On Sunday it was “Tongues of Fire” in the entryway in celebration of Pentecost. Robert thought the streamers were really cool.
After church we headed to Little Monkey Business so Robert could play for a bit. We had the place to ourselves.
Afterwards we headed to the cemetery to take flowers to my Aunt’s grave.
Monday we headed out to Odessa to see Mom and go to the cemetery there. It was a great day of hanging out with Mom and laughing. She fixed a big lunch and we all were stuffed. Robert and Attila got to play together which made both of them very happy. Robert tried to get Attila to watch Pocoyo with him on the iPad but the dog was not real interested.
After all the fun this weekend it was tough to get going back to the real world Tuesday. Robert slept through Jim dressing him. We had to carry him to the car and he immediately curled up on the floor when they got to preschool.
The short week has really screwed me up. I spent all day yesterday thinking it was Monday and all day today thinking it was Thursday. Maybe this weekend we can get things back on track.
