So here it is, our last month of Summer fun.
Week 1 started with us going to our neightborhood pool. Little Tucker is getting pretty good at kicking his feet in the water.
The next night we got to finally do something we've been waiting all Summer to do. We got to FINALLY get ice cream from the ice cream truck. The kids were beyond excited. We heard the ice cream truck while the kids were in the bath. So I quickly got them out and and dressed and we took off out the front door to catch up to the truck. We finally caught him and the kids got to pick out an ice cream treat. So fun!
On Wednesday we went to the Rogers Aquatic Center.
Thursday we went to eat lunch at "The Wooden Spoon"
Friday night we had an outdoor movie night. We watched "Brave" and the kids loved it.
Week 2 began with Glow ring toss, We made the rings out of glow sticks and the kids really loved it.
Tuesday we made giant bubbles. These are always a hit and this time was no exception.
On Wednesday we had a pool party with the Lowdens. The pool was awesome and even though the kids could only touch on the stairs, they still swam around with their "puddle jumpers" and loved it.
Tanner didn't want to leave.
Even little Tucker enjoyed it
I love this one of Tanner and his little buddies.
Look at this cute little body after the pool, before i got him dressed.
Thursday we went over to Bella Vista for the Carmike Cinema Kid's Series. We saw "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" Tanner and Bailey both really liked it and Tucker was such a champ.
Then on Friday we went to the Benton County Fair. The kids loved the rides but I think their favorite part was getting to hold the baby chicks.
Here are my sweet babes at the fair.
Week 3 started with a dress up day. The kids literally spent all day changing their dress-up clothes. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. They have so much fun wearing their dress up clothes.
Tuesday we made cherry pie pops. These were quick, easy and delicious.
Wednesday we played a ping pong water game. We put ping pong balls on golf tees and then we used squirt guns to shoot them off. Tanner really loved this. Bailey had to get right up close to the balls in order to actually hit them. I was cracking up.
The next day we made gummy bear Popsicles with some friends. Bailey was a big fan of them.
They were just sprite and gummy bears frozen in a Popsicle mold.
Then on Friday we went to dinner with Nanny and Papa at "The Wooden Spoon". We enjoyed it so much the first time that we couldn't wait to go back.
That's the end of our summer activities because we left for Florida the next week.
We had such an amazing summer, full of fun and adventures. We feel blessed that we were able to spend so much time with our friends and family.
But, with that said, I am genuinely looking forward to Fall.
