Right now

It's summertime, which means life is moving a little slower these days. Not that we aren't busy. Picnics in the park, trips to the pool and our sprayground, arts and crafts, library time, baking cookies, playing with friends. Of course, we always make time for snuggling.  photo IMG_2262_zps6392d621.jpg

The other day was predicted to be stormy, but most of it was dry - just a bit overcast.  After naps (even Will took one!), we ventured out for a walk on the trail behind our house.  We had to cut it short and high tail it out of there when the thunder started.

Since the afternoon turned stormy, we had to come up with fun things to do inside.  Making a car out of this box was Will's idea.  He asked me to draw a face and windows, with a reminder that 'the windows need to be trapezoids.'

Amelia has become a hat girl, taking them on and off all day.

Though, she always takes breaks from hat-wearing to climb up on her favorite table.

I bribed Will to go out for new picture frames (needed for our Father's Day photo shoot) with promises of new paint.  It keeps him busy for, like, five whole minutes.

Loved walking into the room the other morning to find these two sitting like this...

After many months of planning and anticipation, the living room finally got a makeover.

And after Daddy spent all day painting, he got to spend an evening taking care of his littlest kid so that I could have a date with the bigger one.  Will and I went to Chuck E Cheese and it was perfect.

What would we do without Daddy?  We love him.  Happy Father's Day, Mikey!
