Dear Maya and Emi,
We had a really full week and mommy is exhausted so I'm going to just list what we've been up to.
On Tuesday we went to the library story hour and it was a special one--the same clown from last year came back with all new material! And then we had a free picnic-style lunch on the lawn with all our favorite kids and mommies.
On Wednesday we went over to Aunt Kelsie's house to drop off some things and took cousin Gracie for a little walk down the street. We found a bunch of little baby frogs and had a blast playing while Kelsie took some time to pack for their family vacation.
On Thursday we went to a new park that you two hadn't been to before. Maya, you made it a point to pick and give a flower to every single kid there, even though there were a lot and they were almost all much bigger than you. Then you gave them out to the moms, too. What a sweetie!
On Friday we went to 7, count 'em 7, yard sales and stopped at Dairy Queen for lunch. It was a tiring but really fun day for all of us. Then after dinner, Maya, you and mommy went for our usual trip to pick up our farm share and out to the fields to pick herbs and flowers
Today we went to a 4th of July barbecue party. Emi, you were very quiet and sweet despite missing a nap to be there. Maya, you had such a blast playing with the other kids (especially your buddy Wyatt), jumping on the trampoline, and going down the 100 foot slip 'n' slide on a tube, over and over and over again. Mommy was very proud that you didn't throw a fit when it was time to go home after all that fun.
So you could say we've been keeping busy. And it looks like the next few weeks will hold more of the same. It's going to be a full, fun summer!
Love you both!
