We've been riding our bikes [Vera can ride the whole way!] to the library for story time or just to pick up books we've requested [I just finished History of Love - so good!!] This is the amazing view from the roof:
Playing in the "7 canyons" water feature thing at our park. Here we were inspecting Edie's owie. She was fascinated with the "blup" = blood:
playing in Jack's backyard:
Edie and Graham finding rollie pollies (sp):
Making lots of mojitos - the sole reason I planted mint in our garden:
Eating a popsicle on the front step is a good cure for post-nap grumpiness:
Lots of playing with Eloise:
Edie had been getting up at 6:00 and a few times we would take a walk after my mate and her Signing Time - it is so nice and cool at that hour that I decided that would be our routine. The next day she slept until almost 7:00 and has been inconsistent almost every day since which makes it a little more complicated as Vera then wakes up. Anyway I will find a way to make our early morning walks work...
We all rode our bikes to the first Farmer's Market this morning - this is Edie fascinated by the man playing the piano-on-wheels. He was playing "I'm always chasing rainbows" which Ben said was really nostalgic as they used to listen to his neighbor play it when he was little. He even got a little choked up :) The market was fun - a nice coolish day. Ben got a pulled pork sandwich [which he actually regretted a little since we finally just finished leftovers from the graduation party], Vera got a snow cone and I got a Venezuelan empanada. Edie ate chips and lemonade [bad mom!]. We also got some arugula which I'm making into a pesto tonight. Not a bad start to summer!
