Caroline and I finished up our last week of "The Little Blue Truck" tot school which was super fun. Her favorite activity was playing in "mud" and we continued to do that every day until I couldn't handle my kitchen smelling like chocolate--so we opted to give all of her animals bubbled baths.
We hit the pool one morning and a lot of our neighborhood friends were there. I feel like summer is dwindling some days--with everyone starting school--and then I step outside. Summer is still going strong. Once all of this rain passes I am excited to spend some more qt at the pool and with my favorite swimmer!
With our new zoo passes we went to the zoo and checked it out. I totally forgot my zoo pass that had just been mailed to us but we got in nooo problem and then the water fountains were off and Caroline was totally bummed. However, she was fine strolling through the zoo and then we were about to leave and she said "water come back on please??!" and it 'magically' came back on. She splashed and had a ball. Totally made our day!
We had some new and old friends come over and play and that was super fun. There's a new family with a little girl that played with Caroline. Caroline was not into sharing all of her toys--rough--ha! But after a little bit they both warmed up and had a grand time. Baby Ray and Madeline also came over--and Caroline was such a big helper. She lovessss Ray and sends him snapchats--which are suuuper hilarious.
We've been clearing out closets and getting rid of lots of stuff that we just don't use or want to pack or don't want to unpack or don't want to move...and it feels soooo good! I worked in Caroline's closet and found a Mr. Potatohead with tons of parts and pieces and she was in HEAVEN. She played while I went through boxes (mostly pictures books...can't get rid of those!), consolidated, and sorted things. It was so fun to watch her play!!! AND capture some pretty magical pictures.
Target hasn't been a place we've been frequenting but Caroline got a giftcard for her birthday so we went shopping! She got a fun set of bristle blocks and they have been so loved since. She also picked out a little mini school bus...and come to find out that little toy was 7 bucks...7 whole dollars for a little silly bus! But I was at the self check out and was attempting to get out of the store asap so we just paid for it. That night I went back to return it and the cashier asked if it was broken. Well, no, it's just 7 dollars...for a little bus. And she looked at the bus and went "7 DOLLARS, for THIS?" and we both laughed about this dinky little school bus and it's crazy cost. Anyways, we got these really cool stacking bins that I have some plans for and Caroline has loved playing with them.
We are just chugging along and making it through a few rainy days that are in the forecast this week!!!
This is my favorite one!!!
