Zoo Trip

We bought a zoo membership this year and we try to make the best of it by going at least once a month. This time, Daddy was able to join us.

 We even got to ride the boat this time. Jayvan talked about that for weeks.

 Lexi and Daddy rode the sky safari.

Fun at Deanna Rose

We are so blessed to have such a great children's farmstead so close to home. The kids love this place.

Experiments With Underwear

Let's just call this a failed experiment, but he looked pretty cute in them.

Adoption Picnic

Some friends and I helped organize an adoption picnic for families who have adopted through our agency.  Some of us met up in the morning at Lil Monkey Bizness and the kids had a great time.  It is so fun to spend time with other families who were formed through adoption.

 The picnic was at Quivira park and the food was supplied by our agency.  We met a lot of new families and had fun spending times with old friends as well.

My friend Rachel's husband took this shot of the whole group (minus a few families that had already left).
Hopefully the agency makes this an annual event.

The Berry Patch

One of my favorite Summer traditions is berry picking.  Even though it was a hot day, we decided to meet Nana and Mia out at The Berry Patch.

 Jayvan mostly did some berry eating. . .
 and a little crying about how hot it was.

 We ended the day with a little train ride, but I got to sit with Jayvan (to ensure he didn't jump out).

 We made a few batches of delicious blueberry muffins, ate some blueberries with yogurt, and then put some in the freezer to enjoy later.

Drive-In Fun

We went to the Drive-In to watch Monster's University.  It was so much fun.  It always brings back so many wonderful memories for me.
