Playing catch up

Summer is finally in full swing here, so it's time to play catch up!  I hadn't realized that two months had gone by without a post, so I'm going to do my best to fill in the gaps with what's been happening around here.  We've been thoroughly enjoying our first week and a half of summer so far--we've had some appointments here and there, a playdate, t-ball started, a quick trip to Rochester, and otherwise just finding fun/getting things crossed off the to-do list around home.  Here is some of what we've been up to:
Going for wagon rides
I made a quick project that I've been wanting to make for Abby--a pillowcase mattress.  Happy to know that I still knew how to work the sewing machine--now need to start planning some more summer sewing projects!
Playing outside with Sadie--she's finally starting to get a little easier to wear out.  We've hardly had any "hot" weather yet, but she feels the need to cool down in the landscaping, a patch of shade, or our kiddie pool.
A couple of picture perfect days--we haven't had the best weather, but these days make up for the rest.
Lots of walks/Chariot rides
Popsicles!  Abby is not a fan of her bike, so I had to pull out a bribe.  Ride your bike to the stop sign and back, and we'll get popsicles.  I'll have to try to increase the distance each time :)
Norah's first popsicle!  She was a little surprised the first time she bit off a piece and got brain freeze, but otherwise loved it!
A trip to Barnes and Noble to get Abby's free book for the summer reading program--the girls loved playing with the train set!
I started up the Couch to 5K program again this summer--starting week 3 tonight.  Abby doesn't like that I go without her, so one night, she and I went on a special "run".
First bonfire of summer--a few raindrops, but it was still fun!
Graham cracker thief--someone can't sit still for a bonfire, though...
Abby won this sprinkler at our town's Easter egg hunt, and finally got a chance to use it--she loves it!
Norah doesn't like it...
T-ball is in June this year--a little chilly the first night, nice but buggy the second.  Abby is having fun with it, though!
We went to the eagle program at Daddy's park.  Not recommended for busy one-year-olds, but Abby said she loved it, and the weather was perfect for being outside.
