Summer lovin' the little things!

We really did our part in making the most of the summer we had off!  We didn't leave one day to spare.  We made it to the Library for a story, game night and the reading program.  We also got to watch a few animals of The Woodlands from the window.  

While Jackson was at camp, we made it back to Wendy's for story time and face painting.  It was nostalgia because we used to take these two when they were in pre-K and we had infants in tow.

We walked to the bakery and the newest splash pad in town.  Lillian liked the water but seemed to be unable to distinguish it from a water fountain for drinking.  Luckily she's #3 and drinking from the splash pad is perfectly acceptable!

These cute new chairs are out in the green space in market street.  She likes to sit in the ones her size.

We had to make a mad dash for passports.  We suddenly decided to get the kids passports for our upcoming disney cruise and we went to Conroe to get them.  County office=no lines!  We spent some time in Conroe exploring.  The court house has a fantastic fountain that the boys really loved.

 We introduced Lillian to the Disney Store!  With the cruise coming up, it's time she got accquainted with Mimi (minnie) and she took to it pretty well.  We are lucky we didn't end up having to take one of them home with us.  She gets pretty serious about her "babies".

And now we have a princess.  When she's not busy being minnie, she's all decked out in princess gear.  This makes my heart happy!

This also makes my heart pretty happy.  She RARELY lets me rock her to sleep these days.  As soon as she's done with the milk, she DIVES into the bed for her blankets.  I got to steal this little bit of heaven from her when she gave up first!  I'll take it!

No time like the present.  We introduced Lillian to American Girl.  As to not delay the inevitable, we showed her the dolls and the accessories.  Wouldn't you guess, she LOVED it.  I think Santa just put something on his list for Lady Lillian!

We also got to ride the carousel at the mall!  Lillian went from excited to not so sure and back to excited again.

We ate ice cream!  And lots of it!  

Lincoln went to golf camp at TopGolf for a week.  It was a birthday gift for him and he really enjoyed it and did really well for one of the younger campers!  He still claims he wants to be professional golfer one day.  

Oh, we went to Torchy's!  It's possibly the last time I'll have to drive 30+ minutes to get to Torchy's because they are opening one in The Woodlands very soon!  I am super excited about this!  Lillian s head shook up and down in satisifaction the whole time I fed her their "chocolate meatballs" as the boys call them or fried cookie dough.

Jackson and his friend had some deep 9 year old conversations at the Koi garden.  

Then Jackson catches one of the wild ducks at the Northshore park.  

We got Lillian a water table mid summer.  She loves to pour water from one thing to another and it can occupy her for quite a while.

We hit more pools than I can count this summer.  We kept a swim bag packed and went probably 4-5 days a week!  We all got a good tan and swam our pool pass money's worth!

This is what most of August feels like in Texas.  It has gotten better as of late but whew, it was really rough there for a few weeks.  We had 5 weeks that were OVER 95 every day.  Texas in the summer.

When it was so hot you might melt, we played games inside.  We watched a little TV and played with the neighbors.  We lived life to the fullest and enjoyed every minute of SUMMER!
