The Fourth of July

 Since it's been more than a month, I figured it was time to get pictures up from the Fourth of July!  We started the day with a parade in our neighborhood.

 All of the kids decorated their bikes and scooters.

 There was also a big water balloon fight at one homes in the neighborhood.

 And that was followed up with some pool time!

 In the evening we went to Jay's sister's house for some fireworks.

 Silly string!

 This is probably my favorite shot of the night.  They look like they're in an action movie!  Ha!

 This was one of Jack's favorites.

 The remains...We had a great time!

Little Green Thumbs: Pollinators

The first Little Green Thumbs class Alice took this summer was on pollinators.
They got to try lots of different kinds of honey.  I didn't know there were that many kinds!
Some they liked...
...others, not so much.
Hamming it up!
They played a pollination game.
They also looked for pollinators in the garden.
And of course, we looked for frogs in the pond!
Snack time!
It was lots of fun!  I'm hoping she can go to at least one more class before the summer is over!

Somehow, Jack has developed a real love for sushi.  He will eat it every chance her gets!  Thankfully, he has a friend who also loves it and he got to have it for her birthday!
We tried a new (to us) place one evening after camp.
Still working on his chopstick skills--though he's better at it than I am!
At Survivor Camp they had a sushi challenge and learned how to make their own.  He loved it!
He made some extra for his lunch.
We went out for pizza and the kids ended up getting sushi and bringing it over!
He's even influencing Alice!

Seminole Road Trip

Last month we had a free day on the calendar so we decided to take a road trip down to Seminole!
On the way, we stopped for lunch at the Rock Cafe in Stroud.
It's been quite a while since the last time we were there!
They liked the chalk area!

And of course we had to pose with the Cars!

We spent the rest of the day at Jasmine Moran.
Time for the train!

I was sooo tired by the time we got home, but it was a great day!

Rock Creek Farms

A couple of weeks ago we went blackberry picking with some other 4Hers at Rock Creek Farms in Sand Springs.
It's beautiful there!
We also got to go on a hayride and see some animals!

We even got to have lunch there!
