I have been without students since the 17th (Holy Cow- has it really been 2 weeks already?!?!), but since we had several days of PD- summer feels like it is just beginning!
As many of you know- my hubby is gone during the week, so we really pack our weekends full of family time! This past weekend was extra special with an added day, and we took FULL advantage of it!
We started out the day by going on a hike. We have these fabulous trails about 20 minutes from our house. The idea was to go on about an hour hike and then head home for lunch and naps. Well Dora and Diego (as Nash and Emmie tagged themselves on our adventure) were being so good that we kept going and going. We ended up
getting lost for hiking a total of 4 miles.
Nash, Emmie, and the walking stick that was abandoned after we realized how much slower it made us :)
I promise I was there too-just happen to be taking ALL the pictures!
By the waterfall that was not so waterfallish.
Here is Sassy Britches teaching her daddy how to properly tip-toe as to not wake the bears!
What a fabulous alternative to a day at the pool!
After the proper amount of rest, we hit up the County Fair! OH my! My husband commented that it was even more interesting than a trip to Walmart (meaning what people deemed appropriate clothing to wear into public).
We are still at the age that we stick pretty closely to the kiddie rides. Although- I was given a little taste for what we are in for over the years. Nash and Emmie wanted to go on EVERY ride no matter how tall or fast it went.
In fact, we accidently missed the sign that tells you how tall you have to be to get on the ride (more about that sign in a minute). Oops. Not my greatest parenting decision I have ever made.
Then Nash decided he was big enough to go on the swings by himself. WHO is this grown boy- WHAT happened to my baby?
I literally felt sick watching him on this ride, but he LOVED every second of it!
Best part of the day- watching Nash and Emmie have so much fun together! Sometimes it is so hard to see through the bickering to see how much they love and enjoy each other!
Oh my- in about 12 or 13 years- this is my worst nightmare- when they start driving!
Do people really EAT this stuff??? I really wanted to buy some just to see what it is!
I couldn't help it! The teacher in me about choked when I saw this sign... REALLY? Not one person in the process of making this sign (or the dozens of others JUST like this) noticed the incorrect usage of "to."
And last but not least- look what
crazy sweet Mommy won for her children! At least it holds of the requests for a dog for a little while :)
