Afternoon with Briget and Sammi

After the fair we went to Burger King for lunch.  They played in that play area for a bit and then the girls changed into their swimsuits so we could go to the spray park.  There were just enough clouds for Briget and I to sit comfortably while the girls played in the water.  There was a lot of laughing going on.  The last picture Maggie told me to tickle her and I took a picture instead!

Morning with Briget and Sammi

Briget and I took the girls to the Washington County Fair.  Maggie was very excited to see all the animals up close.  Mena was scared of most of them, but I made her walk with us.  She calmed down and showed some interest in the animals.  Mena said her favorite animal was the horse--it was the one behind a door so you can barely see what she and Sammi were petting.  Maggie's favorite was the rabbits.  Maggie said her favorite was climbing on the chicken for her picture.

Maggie Loves Singing

On Thursday Maggie's teacher left us a note saying, "We have all enjoyed Maggie singing on the playground :)  It is very cute."  Later Ms. Jessica told me that she knows Maggie's favorite song is "Let It Go" because she sings it very loudly on the playground!

Picnic at Kahoa

Tuesday after daycare, we drove through Amigos and took our food to Kahoa Park.  We had a picnic on a blanket and then played on the school playground.  Mena's getting braver on the wiggly bridge and Maggie can make the jumper thing move now.  Both girls love climbing.  Mena yelled, "Mom, take my picture" when she reached the top.

Maggie's Railroad Sign

Maggie's class talked about railroads the week we came back from vacation.  Maggie brought home this sign and carried it around excitedly saying "Railroad Sign!  Railroad Sign!"

Aurora's Birthday Party



We arrived home from our camping trip with enough time to unpack the truck with a little time to relax before heading to Aurora's birthday party.  They had water play in the backyard before we ate dinner.  Aurora liked the dolls we got her for her birthday.  Mena was a little worried when Aurora's cousin picked up the doll and was inspecting it.  Mena was afraid the other little girl would keep it when we bought it for Aurora.  Maggie on the other hand is still trying to understand that Aurora was keeping what I bought and that it was for Aurora and not Maggie.  It was really cute to see how all the kids at the party were learning about birthdays and gifts!  We had some delicious cupcakes and homemade ice cream before heading home for bed.

For Kearny Vacation -- Hiking

Saturday morning we had a play date with a friend who had moved to Kearney.  This was the first time our girls met each other and they had fun together.  That afternoon I took a nap with Maggie in Mom and Dad's camper since they had a/c and Maggie either hadn't napped or had only taken a short nap on the previous days of our trip.  I slept 2 hours and she slept 3 hours!  That evening we hiked to the river.
