Long time no blog!

Wow – its been awhile!  Could it be that April is a slow month as far as happenings go?  Let’s face it – April blows and I’m glad its over!  : )  Bring on the summer!  It was semi hot out the past couple of days and since The Blob hasn’t been filled yet, we had to bust out the slip and slide!

Both Avery and Dylan have improved their slip and slide skills.  Dylan now shoots off the end of it no problem and Avery finally caught on to the concept of sliding on it instead of running down it and then falling on her butt (and often hitting her head) and going into hysterics.  Its lovely!

Like my set up there?  It did have a little hose attachment but apparently there was some crazy slippin and slidin cuz a hole appeared.  So we had to go old school.  I told Dylan about the olden days when we’d have a sprinkler next to our slip and slide.  And also how ours was just yellow.  No fancy Lightning McQueen, no 2 lanes, no water pool at the end of the lanes.  These kids have it made.

And of course since it was so nice out, they just HAD to have ice cream cones.

Believe it or not, their ice cream eating skills have improved too!  It used to be much, much worse.

We also went on a couple of pontoon rides the last couple of days.  We hadn’t been on the pontoon since April 1st (see, April sucks!!  There was no suitable pontoon weather to speak of!) so it was time.  Only bummer was that as soon as we pulled away from the dock, clouds came.  BOO!  But at least we saw this loon up close!

Today the clouds weren’t as big of a problem.  Avery was pointing out that other people have docks too!  What?!

Here they were being cute.  It happens.

I love how she is peering over the steering wheel to see where she’s going.

Well that’s it for this month!  Ha!  Kidding.  Maybe.
