Summer Fun

With a bit more free time now, we are doing more things as a family, which is FANTASTIC!! There is a park a few blocks away from the house and the other night after dinner we all walked down to the park for some exercise and fun! A fun fact: Colgate Park is the same park I played at when I was Kylie's age! In fact, on the way home from the park we walked right by the house where I lived till I was 8 years old! It was a cool feeling watching my daughter play on the same playground I did. Life is amazing!!

The girls loved playing at the park and Jillian even climbed up and went down the slide all by herself!! We were so surprised & proud of her! Kylie & Daddy took turns climbing along the rope wall and Kylie's favorite spot was the curvy slide, which she kept sliding down. It was a great night and the girls can't wait to go back!

To help beat the heat, we recently bought the girls a blowup pool to play in during the hot summer days! It even has a canopy with a sprinkler effect - we haven't tried that yet, but next time I'm sure! It was pretty warm today, but with a bit of a breeze and since Kylie has been bugging me about it since we bought it, I decided to let them splash around in it for awhile......they were in it only 15 minutes before we headed back inside! I think I spent more time blowing it up then they were in it! But, I did get a chance to snap a few pictures of them splashing around before they were too cold and we headed back in the house.

Splashing around....

I think we'll try the pool again tonight once the water has a chance to warm up a bit and it's not so hot outside. They did have fun, even though they were only in there for a short time!

We are definitely having fun this summer and we are finding new ways to have fun and spend quality time as a family! We could definitely get used to this life!!

Check back soon for more fun summer updates!
