So, after all the KidFest excitement, we were all exhausted. Nevertheless, Lynzee and I barely stepped foot in the door before we were on our way back out. We did some shopping- Maurice's, Target, TJ Maxx, and Toys R Us. That's pretty much the DNA of 3/4 of my favorite stores! I can't help but have the sudden urge to belt out One of these things is not like the other...
After shopping, we met up with some friends at Old Chicago for a smorgasbord of
Sunday morning, we woke up bright and early to prepare for LMB and LuLu to come over and play. Tom had a baseball game, and Lynzee needed to devote some time to her class, so we had a super-fun backyard party! Here's a picture of the three stooges:
And, here's sweet Little A observing the girls from her
She has been such the little charmer lately! Isn't her bathing suit the cutest? I bought that last summer for LuLu, and I now get to totally enjoy the hand-me-down. I ♥ elephants!:
Here's another, for good measure. I just cannot get enough of her today:
Oh, and here is "Little A speak". She has become completely and totally obsessed with blowing raspberries. Like, 24/7. They have replaced babbling and all other forms of communication. It's all about the raspberries here:
Speaking of raspberries, reason #862 of why I ♥ summer. I get to eat breakfasts like this:
Don't you agree that the raspberry is a beautiful fruit?
And, yes, I am using my kids' plastic bowl. I don't want to hear about it. It's just more fun that way!
After rests, we went to the city pool and let the girls expend some energy. It was so nice to sit and soak up a little sunshine! Afterwards, we went to Tom & Lynzee's for a grill-fest. We made teriyaki chicken kabobs with onion, button mushrooms, and pineapple; fruit kabobs with red grapes, pineapple, strawberries, and marshmallows; corn on the cob, and cheesecake bites. Yum! Reason #863. Enough said!
