Summer Water Play

Sunday we finally hit a day of really nice hot weather.... a long time coming. With such cool weather Holly has been very disappointed to not have her pool up yet - I am disappointed for her. But, this was finally the day to break it out and enjoy some sunshine. This was Hudson's first time in the pool, last summer he was not walking and just too little. He loved it, he loves water and water play - so this was right up his alley!

The kids had a great time!!!

Summer Fun

Holly and Hudson enjoyed some wonderful park play today before meeting up with friends. They were the only two on the entire playground for a while... it was really nice. Holly help Hudson with the slide a few times and then he got the whole system down himself. A great day for the park!

One Bite At A Time

Hudson is getting pretty good with his fork/spoon capabilities... in fact he much rather prefers to use one over his hands now. Not quiet all the time but about 90% of the time -- and he is getting pretty darn good at it too! I love this stage when independence is setting in, slowly... more & more! Remind of this when I gripe he is too independent for his own good soon - LOL! I feel it comin' on!!!

Penrose Point Camping

We spent this past weekend enjoying our 3rd year of camping at Penrose Point during a low tide weekend. Each year our trip has grown by more families joining us from our camping circle, this year it grew even more making for a great weekend of fun! We enjoyed seeing some friends that we have not enjoyed for some time - a nice treat for sure!

Although we had the pleasure of some raindrops to dampen the weekend a bit, the beach didn't disappoint. Saturday was our best day on the beach as we got out there in time for lowest tide and then took our time walking in to really enjoy the critters. After our time on the actual spit we took a couple kiddos over to the sand dollar beds, a real treat as you just don't see this too often.

We came back to camp and there were so many kiddos enjoying the time of their life through rain downpours and sun breaks. They still enjoyed exploring the woods, playing, riding bikes & scooters and more! It was a fantastic time, another great camping trip - we look forward to next year!
