Summer always seems busy and goes by so quickly.  Thought I would update on just a few of the highlights from the rest of our summer.
Let's see; since my last post we have done more camping trips starting with a trip to Stanwood with our friends the Brinks and Ahlers.  Small little campground but we loved the park that we could walk to that had such a fun playground and the lake at the campground was shallow so far out so the kids could really walk around and play in it safely.   Love my girls Sara and Kim, first trip camping together but hopefully the first of many.
Then was the Concrete KOA with Jeromy's mom and dad.  We love this campground and the kids always have so much fun.  There is so much to do including the jumpy pillow, pool, mini golf, playground, bike rides, wagon rides, duck races, and then the KOA always has a different theme each weekend (it was mystery theme this time ) so they made face masks, had a treasure hunt and more.  This was a favorite spot for sure.

Jeromy and I headed across the border for the first time with the boys and took a little trip to The Greater Vancouver Zoo.  next time, note to self, take bikes for the boys.  We saw others doing this and what a great idea.  It is a lot of walking for little legs.  We had a couple strollers but not enough for all 4.  They toughed it out and we had a great time there.

Next was Oak Harbor City Park with my parents and my sis and her family.  Another favorite spot of ours.  You can't make reservations so it can be a little tricky but we lucked out and got right next to eachother.  The park is right on the beach so there is lots of playing there, bike rides, great playgrounds and little swimming pools and oh of course kite flying.  This year there was  Drift Wood Festival while were there and Jeromy, Dakota, Kevin and all the boys made a Pirate Ship and they won a trophy. They did a great job and we all had so much fun.   We broke our cheap kites the first day so we went and got a couple good ones and that was some fun entertainment too.

FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN...say it isn't so!  How can my sweet little twinlets be heading off to something that is for big kids?   Sigh, tear drop...they aren't old enough for this are they...YEP they are. The time is here to leave their mommy (for 2 days a week) and go to school.  They are going to have so much fun.  I look forward to hearing about their days and their new friends and the memories they will make.  I am so happy for them and I still have 2 at home and Talan and Deegan will still be home most of the time so toughin up buttercup as my hubby would say.  This is an exciting new adventure for them.   Tomorrow they will ride the bus for the fist time and I can only anticipate what it will feel like watching their cute little faces disappear in that big yellow bus.  Oh the tear drops will follow just as they did when I drove away from dropping them off at kindergarten their first day.
