Summer: Day 1

Last Friday was our official first day of summer. It was a gorgeous day and we spent 99% of if outside. 

In the morning we set up our big tent to play in. The kids went in and out and in and out all day long. Dragging in treasures and blankets, stuffed animals and games.

We had the first of what I'm sure will be many, many lunches outside. I love the ease of outdoor eating. 

That evening we headed down the street to the splash park that had started running that day. I wasn't sure if the little girls would like it very much. Taryn didn't really start to like it until last year. They fully embraced all the water fun though!

We had ice cream sandwiches and Z had it all over her face so we told her to go wash it in the water.

High-powered cleaning! 

B ran and ran and ran.

A would squeal with delight every time some water sprayed her. 

Matching children are easier to find in a crowd. 

This picture makes me smile every time I see it. 

So does this one. Silly girls. Peek-a-Boo Aven!

The water was pretty chilly! 

Those squishy thighs kill me. 
After we got home and put the little girls down for bed, the big kids begged to sleep in the tent. Derek conceded to hang out there for a while.

This is them pretending to sleep. With their new animals from the trip to build-a-bear the day before.

Not sure why this is so fuzzy but I love seeing them love each other. 
If our first day of summer is any indication, this is going to be a really, really good one.  : )
