June happenings

A brief update on a few June happenings:

~Fairchild was in town for work (he comes each June and we love having the excuse to get together each year!).  

~Lots of snuggles from this boy

~Lily attended a Little Glee camp.  After five days of practice, the girls sang and danced to three songs:  Walking on Sunshine, ABC, and Shout!  Lily can be very anxious prior to a new experience so we've been trying to push her a bit this summer, in anticipation of Kindergarten this fall.  Little Glee was her third such activity and she experienced no tears or nervousness the entire week.  We are so very proud of our girl.  And most importantly, she absolutely loved it and wants to do it again soon!

~Nanny was not missing out of Lily's special performance, so booked a last minute flight.  We were beyond thrilled to spend a few days with one of our favorite gals.  

~A favorite spot with Nanny is the Simple Farm.  This will be our last trip until they reopen in the fall, due to the summer heat.  William loves checking out the goats, but the chickens are quickly becoming his favorite.  And I scored some seriously yummy produce!

~No visit would be complete without a trip to the Twisted Lizard, our local watering hole.  Thanks Nanny for taking a pic of the whole family!

~After Nanny left, the kiddos and I joined the neighborhood Mom's group at the greatest show on earth…Ringling Brothers Circus!  Lily swears it was the best day ever and William can't stop talking about the bikes inside the "ball" (eight motorcycles inside a sphere).  

~Finally, we checked out a new-to-us indoor playground attached to our favorite toy store, and were treated to a story and sing-along with none other than Princess Anna herself. I had a happy five year old….even though she told me multiple times that it wasn't the real Anna, just a cousin helping her out because Anna's too busy to make such appearances.  :)

~What a fun, busy month June was.  And July is looking to be even better…with a few awesome trips on the horizon.  Stay tuned!
