Splish Splash

I wash curious to see what Ben would think of the splash pad at the YMCA this year. It turns out he loves it. The grumpy 10 year old – not so much. (They also have a pool but he got tired of that pretty quickly too.)

All The Attention

Is it any surprise that this guy gets most of the attention from the grandparents?

Celebrating

Wade’s family is in town for a visit. We left the kids with a sitter and went out to celebrate. His parents have been married 50 years!

Mud Day

I had heard about Mud Day at the Ecotarium last year, but we had been unable to attend. I thought it sounded like so much – wear old clothes and have lots of fun makes mudpies, mudart, mud digging, mud sculptures, etc. Today we loaded up the kids, brought a change of clothes for all of them and headed out. To my surprise, nobody was very interested in getting messy. The big boys just looked at the activities but didn’t participate. Kaitlyn loved all of them, but didn’t get a drop of mud on her at all. Ben, now Ben is a completely different story. He dived right into everything.

The Best Gift

This has been the best winter gift. The kids have loved it. It has been a great option for when we want to stay at home or when Ben is napping. Thanks Gram!

The Hard Summer

It looks like this summer is going to be a little different. I had no idea “10” was the year it would suddenly be no fun to go on outings with your siblings. Alex is initially okay with going the pool or lake. Then after about 30 minutes the complaining starts. He wants to know when we are going to eat or when we are going to leave. I have suggested bringing his book or drawing supplies, but that is not something he wants to do. It’s going to be a LONG summer.

Beach Bums

Today we went to the beach with friends. I love having the ocean only an hour away. The big boys were definitely in it for the snacks but they didn’t complain too much. The little kids had a great time swimming and playing in the sand.

End Of The Season

Today was the last soccer game of the season for Kaitlyn. Because Wade was out of town that also meant everyone had to come with me to Kaitlyn’s game. Unfortunately, it was insanely hot and the fields have zero shade. Ben had a stroller with a sunshade but zero desire to sit inside. The big boys tried to use his stroller for shade (which I found hilarious). The girls on the field did great considering the weather. I’m not sure Kaitlyn’s foot touched the ball, but she did travel with the pack. Afterwards it was medals and snacks for everybody.
