Summer Shenanigans: June Pt. 2

The rest of our June went by way too quickly, but at a nice slow pace. Ellie spent a bunch of afternoons playing with friends from across the street. She was always so sad when it was time to part ways. One afternoon I found her outside in denial and finding cloud animals. At least she has her imagination.

Fitz has an ear for finding every possible plane on the horizon. He makes everyone stop what they're doing and will not stop yelping until we acknowledge that it's there. We're just trying to get him to call them planes instead of "copters". Well, I'm not trying that hard because it's adorable.

We went to James' birthday party at the Roy aquatic center. It's one of our favorite pools. The kids loved playing together and sunbathing during rest times.

After a month of sitting in the box, we finally set up the tramp. Ellie was so excited. Of course, it's been so hot this summer that the kids can't jump on it between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. I'm thinking it'll be a hit this fall. Wah wah.

I have no idea why this picture was taken, but how cute are these cousins? The cutest.

Jeremy took some time off at the end of the month and it was the best. We did lots of relaxing and the kids just loved having him around. I think he was off for 5 days straight and it was very rough having him go back to work. Fitz especially went through withdrawls.

We started going to the kids movies that the Megaplex hosted on Tuesdays. Fitz struggles hard, but thankfully Lisa is willing to chase him around and share her nachos with him. It's a good time all around and you cannot beat that $1.50 popcorn. Note to self for next year: I do not get service in the theater. It's a bit painful.

Ellie went to her very first primary activity! They celebrated Pioneer Day and she had a blast. She made a covered wagon entirely out of treats that she didn't care for (and I devoured), and has apparently the best snow cone of her life. However, she was very sad when she sucked all of the purple flavoring out of the ice. She graciously let me finish her plain shaved ice.

We've spent more evenings than days at Cherry Hill. He love taking Jeremy with us. He goes down all of the fun slides and is way more fun than I could ever hope to be.

We roasted more marshmallows at Nana and Papa's and Ellie and I can agree that we could go for a good smores every night.

While Jeremy was off the whole crew came with me to my doctors appointment. We of course ended up waiting for about 40 minutes and the kids were nuts, but what can ya do? After, we were all ravenous and stopped at Mrs. Backer's pasteries. Jeremy and I have been wanting to go there for years. It was a cute shop, but sooooo expensive. It was very tasty though and the perfect appetizer to lunch.

We finished off the month and Jeremy's time off with taking the kids to Cars 3. Fitz was a terror and Ellie didn't do too fantastic either, darn it. I was sad because the movie was actually really cute and I can't wait to see the ending. One day we'll make it through a movie, one day...maybe in 5 or so years.
