After our fair adventures, in what appears to becoming a summer tradition, the kiddos took a large box from our garage and painted it with the leftover paint from our dresser project for a "house"
And a playdate at the splashpark! One of my friends takes some of the best pics of my kiddos!
And Matthew enjoyed putting some gummy dinosaurs and rocks on the cupcakes for his guests:
Then the kids headed over to the museum for some fun with Mas and Pas while James and I made a paper-maiche hamhock because we are awesome that way.
He later realized he had a hard hat too and now it's rare that he is "doing 'struction" without his hat:
And later we revealed his awesome new basketball hoop! He talked about playing with his buddies all year and is thrilled to have his own. He still calls it "soccer" sometimes, but we're working on it :-)
And because there was so much excitement in the air waiting for the party we knew nap was out of the question so we cuddled up for a bit of a movie:
A HUGE thanks to Pas for taking most all of these pictures! Amidst the hubub I didn't grab my camera as often as I'd have liked and am so thankful for these great photos!
