Summa Summa Summertime

First - I want to say that if you live in Arizona or have ever lived there or have visited a lot - send me your Arizona recommendations for Friday's post!!! I hope that one day all of the state round ups will be helpful! I'm working on getting them put on one spot for easy access!

Last week was our first real week of summer and we had a fun but busy one.

Tuesday we met some friends to see "Inside Out".  I didn't take a picture but we had a lot of fun.  Will Holden didn't sleep a minute during the movie but he was really good.

After the movie we met some more friends for ice cream at this old fashioned ice cream shop on our town square.  It was a HOT day so it felt good to get inside.

Then we let the kids run around and play on the square and put their feet in the fountain.  We went swimming with friends the next day but I didn't take any pictures.  The girls LOVED swimming.  I've got to figure out how to take them more often.  It's a little tricky with a baby.  :-) 

Will Holden had his two month appointment on Thursday.  He has grown a lot.  He weighted 12 lbs 10 oz and was 23 inches long.  Doesn't he look THRILLED that his sisters are holding him? He had to get shots and he did really well but he wasn't a happy camper the rest of the day so I pretty much just snuggled and loved on him until bed time. 

We also fit in a birthday party at a jump place. It was 5000 degrees in there but we had a lot of fun! 

Saturday we met Scott's parents halfway to send the girls to "Grandparent Camp" for a week.  I don't know who was more excited - the girls or their grandparents.  I used to spend a few weeks every summer with both sets of my grandparents.  I can honestly say that those weeks are the BEST memories I have of my childhood.  Not that I don't have amazing memories with my own family but there is something extra special about grandparents.  Maybe it's that they let you ice cream any time you want and spoil you and rarely say no.  Hmmmmm......... maybe that's it. ha! 

Harper called me today from their home phone and said "Mom - I am calling you from a REAL telephone."  My poor children have never seen a real telephone.  I tried to explain to them the other day that when I was a kid we didn't have cell phones or computers or iPads.  I think it blew their minds a little.  And made me feel like I was 87. 

This little buddy is spending the week with me.  I wish I could say I was getting a ton done but he's not fond of daytime sleeping.  So I mostly carry him around but I'm getting a few things done and enjoying some one on one time.  

My friend Julee and her daughter Preslee were in town this weekend and came by for a visit.  I was SOOO excited to see them.  I wish they lived closer.  They were headed to a fireworks show so they were festive and patriotic.  

Meanwhile the girls are fishing and having the best time.  Harper LOVES to fish - she may get on the FLW tour one of these days! 

I will just leave you with this little smiling boy in case you are having a bad day - hopefully it will make you smile! :-)
