Summer Time

The temps are starting to creep up and we are making the most of outdoor activities before the inevitable 100+ degree weather hits.

The park is a big hit these days.  With all of the options to climb and run, Palmer is in heaven.
And he's slightly impatient to go down the slide.  I often have to remind him to "sit down" at the top of the slide because Palmer would prefer to barrel down face first.  Sitting just takes too much time away from the impending fun of the slide.

Last summer, Palmer was too little for sunscreen so we had to dodge the sun and limit our outdoor activities.  Not this year.  I slather the little boy up and send him on his way.  
So far, he seems to have his mom's skin genes and doesn't burn.  I remember how dark I used to get as a kid and hope he has the same fortune.

Palmer had a blast at Blythe's birthday party.  He couldn't believe his luck when he played in 4 kiddie pools, sprinklers, AND a ball pit.
Combine all of that fun with a cupcake, an ice cream cone, 3 packets of teddy grahams, and strawberries...
 ...and you can bet that a very happy and very tired little boy quickly fell asleep on the way home from the party.
