*I know tonight's post is coming to you a bit late, but as hard as I tried to work ahead, this weekend's big adoption event took up much time.
The last day of school was on a Friday. Later the same weekend (Sunday night) Grandpa Tom and Grandma Judy drove into town. The kids were VERY surprised to wake up and see them on Monday morning. Tom and Judy were able to stay until Wednesday afternoon.
T had her first day of Safety Town (will be discussed more in a future post) from 10:30-12:30. We played around at the house before Safety Town. Tom and Judy brought up Legos and everyone enjoyed working and creating with them. T can spend hours doing this! MANY games were played. We gave M the Uno game for finishing 1st grade. I thought it was a super clever gift, but mainly we didn't have the game and he loves it and I knew it would be a good activity for the summer, especially on rainy days.
--- This is where my prep of this post ended a couple of weeks ago. Now by brain is fuzzy so I am going to sort the photos by activities!
Uno was all the rage around here at the beginning of the month. The have transitioned to "war" now, but maybe tomorrow that could change. M has a card holder, but T doesn't so she used a box to block her cards.
|T: I like to keep the "Draw 4" cards for the perfect time.|
|T: Grandma Judy and I played together.|
|T: Dad, are you looking at my cards?|
Brandon and the kids were really into kickball early in June. Brandon really loves to get the kids out. Grandpa Tom joined in the fun.
|M: Daddy can really throw the ball hard!|
|T: I love to make houses with make-up stations.|
The kids and the grandparents had fun with indoor AND outdoor Yahtzee. M even got a Yahtzee.
|M: Five of a kind!!!|
Every year over the 4th of July we shoot off rockets. The kids were able to make their rockets while Tom and Judy were here.
|T: We had to make it in a very specific way.|
|T: I am not totally sure I want to be a dentist.|
There were many books read. The look on all of their faces tells you this was a pretty funny book.
|M and T: Read it again Grandpa!|
One afternoon the kids decided to run through the sprinkler. It was still way too chilly in my opinion, but they were eager and our backyard is pretty sunny.
|M: I made a waterslide for T.|
|M: Hey T, come over here.|
|T: First we tried the little star sprinkler.|
|T: Then we got out the long one that shoots everywhere.|
|M and T: Strike a pose!|
