Take Me Out To The Ball Game


Today we took the girls to their first Cardinal/Cub Baseball game.  They have been waiting all week for it!  Their Dad is the biggest Cardinal fan around. The series is a fun rivalry and we were happy to be part of it.  We dressed in red and white and took the train to Wrigley field.  We ate hotdogs and peanuts and the girls sang all the words to, "Take me out to the ball game"! We had so much fun and look forward to doing this every year!  Now we are getting ready to pack our bags and leave for vacation for awhile! 






Can't Wait to Get There!

Weekend At The Lake

This weekend we enjoyed a couple of days with our friends at their house in Lake Geneva.  It was a great time! The weather was beautiful, the company was perfect and we all had a wonderful time. The girls enjoyed every minute and were worn out by late Sunday afternoon. They swam, kayaked, rode in the boat, dove off the pier, went down the water slide more times than I could count, walked the paths and just had lots of fun with their buddies!  It was a perfect Summer weekend! 






















































A little Sea sick:(


A few crackers and some cold water and we were good to go!

What We Have Been Up To The PastMonth



We have had lots going on and I have not been able to keep up here. So in a nutshell here is what has been going on since my last post!






The girls completed Junior Kindergarten!! 
Next year full day Kindergarten!



We were able to make it to the beach prior to the Lifeguards starting. this meant we could "sneak" into their guard chairs - one of the girls favorite things to do!



The girls love to run through the sprinklers early in the morning with their umbrellas!




We always LOVE the beach!!!!




And as far as water goes - we love it all! 
Nothing like a day in the backyard running through the sprinkler!






















Summer wouldn't be Summer without chasing lightening bugs in the yard!























We also celebrated Fourth of July with friends, 
a big party and lots of fireworks!


Summer seems to be flying by!  Hoping to keep up a little better for the remainder of the Summer!!

Happy Summer, 2012!
