So far summer is going well. We are just now having super hot days which will make us head indoors during the afternoons but we will take the hot sun over polar vortex ANY day. The boys have been spending sun up to sun down outdoors and me and Jared have tried to take some work breaks and head out for some Vitamin D. Basketball has been a hot commodity as has some cup stack in the garage. I have also seen the two monsters riding their wagons down the hill and some chalk art covering everything made out of concrete.
Jared’s brother is coming down from Pennsylvania this weekend so we are having a family get together. In an attempt to get more outdoor seating for us, as well as when we have guests, we purchased some picnic tables for the deck. Jared spent some time putting those together with the older two munchkins. They sang bob the builder for most of the project which was a welcome relief from all songs Frozen. (I could go the rest of my life never hearing another Frozen song) Eeek!! While the guys were busy building the picnic tables Gavin was chilling out and getting milk drunk. I’m pretty sure he was pretty pleased he got out of all that sweaty work. We still need to sand and paint the tables but they look great on our deck and it will be so nice to have some seating for picnics with the kiddos.
We are hoping to get a pool for the boys soon so they can have even more to do this summer. Not sure when we will get out our slip n slide but with all the hectic stuff going on right now it will probably be a while. I am loving this house in the summer and there is nothing greater than watching the boys have room to run, grow and use their imagination. Hope you are all enjoying the summer sun and making lots of your own memories.
