Summer! School officially ends on Tuesday, which seems so late - isn't Summer already half over? No? Okay good! This weekend, we visited the boys' day camp that they will be attending for a few weeks next month. I'm excited for them, and both my husband and I wished we could go too! I'm most excited for them to get daily swim lessons. Swimming feels like the next big hurdle.
We also attended a ice cream festival on Saturday afternoon, enjoying four servings of ice cream from local ice cream shops. YUM! Perfect on a hot sunny day. Kevin and I had a date night, which only consisted of seeing a movie, but it was good to get out. (We saw "This is the End" - quite possibly the strangest and crudest movie ever, but I will admit I laughed out loud and often. Actually, I'm chuckling now remembering a couple particular scenes.)
Sunday's main event was a hike through a nearby wildlife sanctuary. It was on our to-do list to hunt for frogs and turtles, and after much searching, we finally saw a frog streak by us right as we were close to leaving! We also saw five turtles. The boys were very excited. I was happy too, because the boys were great about walking a long way and because the trees provided lovely shady relief from the hot sun.
Here's what's on tap for the week:
- Last day of school! We plan to celebrate with a couple of Aaron's friends. It's going to be another scorcher, so I'm thinking sprinkler and popsicles.
- Party preparations! I need to order the ice cream cake and pick up a couple favors. Then I need to say a prayer to the weather goddess to keep the skies clear for an hour and a half Saturday afternoon.
- Movie! One day this week we will go see Monsters University. I am actually looking forward to it.
It's going to be a good week. Hope yours is too!
