Free Ice Cream for Summer Reading

 We redeemed our free ice cream coupon from the summer reading program through the library.  The kids had a blast in the play area too.

Civil War Reenactment

 Rose trying some of the kids games.

And showing off a parasol.

But it started raining really hard, so I don't have any more pictures of the event.  The kids had fun, so I have it on good authority that we will now be attending more such events!

St Rose of Lima Feast Day

 We went back to the tire to tire park as Rose calls it...only this time I forgot our lunch on the kitchen table and we ate at the McDonald's down the road.

 These kids are too cute!

We also made cupcakes and brought them to the retired priests at the St Rose of Lima Retirement Villa, which is fairly new.  Here Rose is posing with their newly installed statue of St Rose.

Summer Movies

Once again, cheap fun summer movies were the mode of entertainment on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  It was a nice way to spend a morning inside, since it was so hot this summer.

Reading in the back seat

Developing a love of reading.  And cute on top of it.

Reading with GUB

GUB (Great Uncle Bill) and GAC (Great Aunt Cristi) came for a visit and Rose showed off her new reading skills.  Of course James did great hamming it up for the camera!

Fun at the Water Park

Couldn't keep James off the kiddie slides, too bad he isn't taller, he would have loved the big slides.  We go every summer since there is a free coupon in the kids summer reading coupon book.  They look forward to it so much that we went back  after naps since we had wrist bands on.

Rose on the boogie board

Beach Weekend

John spent the day with us...of course in the shade.  There was a nice breeze so he was comfy.  He did a great job taking naps on the beach.

 James spent a lot of time flinging sand around, but having fun doing it.

 He didn't do such a good job taking naps on the beach...only 20 minutes!

 Rose spent quite some time riding waves in (they had already crashed) but she was really good at it.
