Summer 2011 Update: Part 1

This summer has been packed with too many activities to even really blog about... So here's a little taste of our summer.

We went to Florida in July and spent a week by the beach.  My daughter was quite the little princess and refused to touch the sand, salt water, or seaweed, but she survived.  Almost every moment we were down by the beach she'd say, "pool best," in an attempt to get someone to take her back up to the house.  My son on the other hand, was constantly asking to go onto the beach to dig in the sand or play in the ocean.  He wanted to dig holes that were "5 feet deep" and venture out into the "deepest waters."  Thankfully, he wore a life jacket or he would have really been tossed in the surf.

Also while in Florida, the kids took daily bike and wagon rides, and swam in the pool.

It was a HOT summer, so at home, we added our own little pool to our backyard to keep the kids cool when they were out by the Sky Fort:

Pool Time!

Despite the heat, we still managed to get to the park a few times:
