In the meantime, we have been enjoying some outdoor activities that serve as little reminders that summer is just around the corner. If the 90 degree weather today didn't do it, then these others things provide the signs.
|As summer approaches, our desire to be outside blowing bubbles increases.|
2. Lots of other outdoor fun!
|The grass is no longer dormant, and we must mow!|
3. Summer crops
|We are experiencing hints of summer as our garden begins bearing "summer fruits". .. like these peaches|
|and tiny tomatoes|
|and the lettuce is flourishing|
We visited our first of the season this evening. We just visited a simple one across from our library, located on our main street plaza. It was a great introductory splash pad for Abbey since she is rather inexperienced with them.
|Abbey is warming up to the water....|
|warmed up and enjoying it.|
|Oh! Water snuck up on her..not as happy about it.|
|Luke loved every bit of it!|
|Oh no! Here it is beginning to spray. Abbey can't figure out how to get away from it.|
|Oops. Wrong way...I don't want to go into the water. Get me out of here!|
|"Mommy, how about you put the camera down and come save me instead of laughing and snapping photos."|
|"Oh Great! Another sprayer?"|
|"Hooray! I see the way out of here!"|
|The hilarious part of the story was when Abbey finally found her way out of the water. Without batting an eye, she headed in the direction of our car and said, "I want to go home!"|
|When she heard us all laughing, she relaxed and headed back towards us. The girl loves to make us laugh and was pretty proud that she did so...even if it meant her temporary suffering.|
I captured a little video with our camera after the ordeal. Click here if you want to see it, or simply watch it below:
