A Trip to the Lake

 What's summer without a trip to the lake and fun with cousins and "flamily"?

This is probably the infamous "reindeer jump". Along with many other animal jumps!

Quite the natural lady of the boat pose...

Fishing for more snacks..."I hungy Momma"

Weston and Jesse reading a book together...sweetness abounds.

Leah and Tim tubing. Weston went with Kurt also...a new leaf has turned with the water this summer!

I don't know what's cuter...this kids face or Lily and Kurt smooching in the background.

Father's Day

For Father's Day this year I got Kurt and Weston tickets for a Cardinal game that was actually ON Father's Day. Yay! Weston was soooo excited. I didn't even tell him until that day because I knew his anticipation would bubble over into spilling the beans :). Kurt had the great idea of taking the MetroLink into the stadium...which led to even more jumping up and down from the little one. 

It was pretty hot that day and Weston made it through 10 of 14 innings of the game! I was pretty proud of him! I think Kurt took this picture to prove that adequate hydration was occurring...

Weston was exhausted when he got home, but when asked about his favorite part it was, of course, seeing Fredbird...


Lily and I had the afternoon together in which she spent most of the time asking, "Where Wethtie doe?" And immediately upon arriving home half asleep, she was at his side asking "Wanna pay wit me? Wanna pay wit me?"

Happy Father's Day to the best Dad for these kiddos...and husband for this momma!

Grant's Farm

We made our first trek to Grant's Farm this year. Since I dislike paying the $12 for parking, I park down the trail and we walk to the farm. I underestimated the length of that "little" jaunt and just brought the umbrella stroller thinking that Weston would be able to walk. That resulted in me carrying one child and pushing another in the dead heat of noon on our way back after having to do some backtracking to see the Clydesdale horses. Bummer. Weston kindly called me out suggesting, "Mom you should have brought the red stroller (our double)". Despite Momma needing a nap afterwards, we had a great time.

Lily actually agreed to the carousel for the first time!

Lily was especially "mothering" to the baby goats

Weston wanted me to get a picture of all the animals!


We also saw the bird show which Weston loved. His focus and and attention to those kind of things is so fun to watch. Lily stayed "sort of" close and didn't run off "too far" and I felt a bit more at ease and able to enjoy the park with them than last year. Maybe we'll visit again before the season's over. With the red stroller, of course :)
