I cannot believe that June is over ALREADY! Slow down, summer or you'll be over before we've had a chance to enjoy it.
One of our favorite summer pastimes is playing cards on a warm day around the porch table. We usually play Phase Ten, Trips and Runs and Pounce. The competition is fierce. This year, Elliot is "into" cards. His current favorite card games are Uno, Go Fish and Memory. It is incredibly wonderful to watch as he learns something new everyday.
We had made a bucket list for June and were able to accomplish 3 out of 5 of the activities we had set for the month. First was a Strawberry Festival at a local Church, where we ate . . . yes, blue snow cones. We did have hot dogs, a yummy salad, chips and strawberry shortcake. The weather was great and made for a lovely evening.
And while we did not go to the park listed, we did go to Kennywood Amusement Park. This was Amelia's first time riding at Kiddieland, and although she is still too little to ride anything by herself (she is seriously tiny), we were able to go on a few together. Elliot had a great time, he rode Cranky at least 7 times!
Then we ended the month by going to see Toy Story 4 at the drive-in. It was rather a cool / cold night, but armed with blankets, it was still a perfect night to sit under the stars and watch a movie. We are looking forward to doing that again soon.
We also got our little pool up, the umbrella table is ready for serious card playing, the grass is cut, there is sand in the sandbox. Time to make a new bucket list.
How is your summer shaping up????
More to come.
