I've not posted in almost a week since I've posted and crazily it's because I keep forgetting to take my camera with me when we go out and I've missed some really great memories! Dang it!
Last Friday, Mom and I took the kids to the park to play on the playground. We had so much fun! A cool front came in Friday and it was actually a little cold! I was sitting on a bench under the shade with Emma in the stroller beside me and I had to move us into the sun! Imagine that! In July!!! The playground was packed with mom and kids. Everyone wanted to be out. Then we walked across to the town square to get burgers at a restaurant. We took them out to the square and had a picnic and the kids played in the fountain. I was soooooo mad for not having my camera! I took some with my phone, but it's not the same. After we ate we went into a couple shops on the square and then at Luke's insistence, we went into the Walton Museum. He loves it. It's hysterical. He always wants to see Sam Walton's office and truck.
Then it was home for naps. It was a great day. I am so glad my parents are here so they can have days like that with the kids.
Lance's mom met me Sat to get the kids and take them home with her to spend the night. They, along with their 2 cousins slept in a tent in the back yard with GiGi. She is either a saint or insane! The kids had a blast!!
I realized a couple days ago that we only have 4 more weeks before school starts. We've been busy all summer and I feel like there is so much I wanted us to do that we haven't done. We are going camping this Saturday through next Wed. and then we have another camping trip planned for the week before school starts. It's going to fly past. I'm sad to see the summer end. But at the same time, it will be nice to have a couple days a week without kids to get errands run. That's been the hardest part of the summer. But I'm going to miss the laidback days of summer.
