Adventures left and right

While we don't do everything we'd like to, we still manage to get out and have some fun. Just at the end of the day today, we sat down with the girls and talked about all the things we did today and it was a lot. This morning, we went to a place called Bouncing Bears. It's a giant warehouse with those huge inflatable slides. There were quite a few kids there but it was a ton of fun for all of us. Lisa and I were in there with the girls jumping around and going down the slides.

On the way home, we stopped by a RV sales place and looked at travel trailers. I've been thinking about this all summer...about how much fun it would be to have some sort of RV or trailer. After lots of internet research, we stopped by for the first time and actually walked through a couple. I could really see us getting one of those next year. The girls loved running around inside and were pretty upset when we left to go home.

After lunch and a nap that was a little shorter than expected, we went back out to run some errands. We went to REI first, then to Michaels, the Pet Store so the girls could run around and see all the animals, and then finally to Sportsman's Warehouse for some more flies. At Sportsmans, they had one of those tiny carts for kids. The girls LOVED pushing it around!! OH...then we had to go to the grocery story. The girls always love that because they get to sit in the big cart that looks like a race car and has two steering wheels in it. That's always a blasty blast.

Finally home for dinner, naked time, and a bath before going to bed. It's been a hectic but fun day.

Now as Lisa is doing some crafts for our neighbor girls, I thought I would download a couple videos and find some old photos that we haven't shared yet.

First video is Head Shoulders Knees and Toes.

Now for the Hokie Pokie

A quick story before we get to the pictures. This morning, Lisa and I were making breakfast and getting the girls ready for the day when Katy decided she wasn't ready to have her diaper changed yet. We didn't want a fight so we let her have her moment. I jokingly asked if she would let Alyssa change her diaper and she said "yes". So she lays down and next thing I know, Alyssa is sitting in front of her trying to take off Katy's pants and diaper! So I quickly grab the camera while Lisa sits down to assist and we get a great video of Alyssa helping. I would share the video with everyone but there was a little too much baby nudity to just put out there for anyone and everyone to see. I've sent a link for family. If you don't get to see it, just know that it's pretty hilarious.

Another one from this evening that Lisa just posted on Facebook...we were in their room getting ready for bed. Right before we turn off the lights we sign the alphabet and we count with the girls. After we counted, Lisa asks Alyssa if she wants to count backwards. She says "yes", thinks for a moment, then turns around and faces away from us and proceeds to count! It was fantastic!

So here are some older photos that I dug up.

One of my favorites.


Before a 10+ mile bike ride with the girls, we had a picnic at the trail head in the back of the car.
After...the girls had some fun in the drivers seat.

Back to work and play tomorrow. We have a couple things planned this week already and I'm going to try and bike to work all 5 days. We'll see what happens.
