We've had a really fun few days. We spent the weekend up in MV/Burlington and got to see some family and my dear friend Kristen. We started out with a playdate with the girls' 2nd cousins (their mom is my niece). It was the first of 3 really hot days (preceeded and followed by some fairly hot ones) so when we got there Taylor was already in her wading pool waiting for us. But after going through the trouble of getting the girls into their swim diapers and suits and slathering on the sunscreen, they only played outside for 5 or 10 minutes before wanting to go inside and scope out all Taylor's toys. Sigh.
The next day we met Kristen at a spray park. Unfortunately, Kayley wanted nothing to do with it (and she's the one that will stay all day in the kiddie pool at Crescent Bar, whereas Olivia likes it for awile but then wants to get out). At least Olivia had a fun time. But since Kayley wasn't interested, we decided to move on to the Children's Museum (ahhhhh...AC). They had a great time playing there with all kinds of toys and seeing lots of interesting things. Paul had the camera for his backpacking trip so I didn't get any pictures of either of these adventures but Kristen took some cute ones so hopefully she'll forward those on to me.
Yesterday Paul had the day off and since it was another hot one we decided to go to Lake Tapps again. We brought a picnic lunch of roasted chicken, baked potato salad (for him), cole slaw (for me) and fruit and had a really fun day playing in the water. I love summer! I just wish we had air conditioning, even if we only need it a few weeks out of the year.
