For Memorial Day we packed up and headed to a little public beach at a local lake. We packed a picnic and had a lot of fun just playing around until the crowds really began to show up after lunchtime!
Oh my gosh, it was so hot! We drove around while the kids napped and looked at so many places around the lake that we had never been to before. It was neat to explore new corners of our town.
Our neighborhood pool opened, so we started trying to go in the evenings a little bit!
James Spann would be so proud of our tornado preparedness! We kicked back and took cover in the laundry room late one night and the boys baked us a “cake” in the mixer while we waited for our tornado warning to pass. Even though I often sleep through tornado warnings (umm woops!), I don’t play around and I get my kiddos in helmets if it’s starting to look pretty rough.
Just a fun shot of a random, lazy summer morning. We were so happy to not really have to be anywhere except gymnastics and PT/OT all summer long! I baked yummy breakfasts a lot of mornings, we worked on our Bible devotionals over breakfast, and I just literally enjoyed not really having to rush them to do much of anything. It felt so good! I felt like I had a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders.
I wanted to make sure I enjoyed every second of my summer with them . I wanted to really cherish our last little bit of time together before kindergarten started up in the fall.
We set to work doing fun things like puzzles, painting the house with water, and playing Memory!
Matthew loves to play Memory lately!
