|so many adventures just outside the front door. . .|
The kids are enjoying summer. I'm so awful at keeping any sort of routine in the summer. And they love it. None of my children have ever been those type of people who take comfort in the regularity of things. Maybe this is my fault for never keeping regular schedules when they where younger, but now regular bedtimes, mornings, and school days make them so grumpy. Hopefully we can work on changing that, but its nice to see them keeping themselves busy all through the long summer days with things they enjoy.
Among the summer adventures has been Azia's quest to make herself into a mermaid. . .
Boys. . . I told the to get out of the car and when I didn't hear them behind me, turned around to see this:
A few other goings-on this week. . .

It's a great idea to keep kids moving and let them be involved in the marathon weekend.
and the next day...
A Silverwood trip
|complete with a train robbery|
|And kids and water|
|and more water|
|all sort of rides|
|and a late night picnic beside the highway when everything was closed by the time we left.|

We aren't having her party for a couple days but we finally started planning it.

We also went up to the Lake for the evening
