Summertime Fun!

Summer has been moving along! I can't believe it's already August! This summer has been P.A.C.K.E.D. with so many friends, family, summertime goodness, and heat!!! It's been in the high 90's and 100's here in Indy! Here are just a few of the highlights of our summer so far.  

We visited Conner Prairie (an interactive history park) with Grandma Magz and Aunt Lindsay. Aunt Lindsay was visiting for a whole month! In this picture, clearly I am the only one excited about the cow. Mekonen was afraid of the barn full of animals. 
 You can't be a kid in the summertime without learning the art of rolling down hills. At first, Mekonen wasn't so sure about it and looked like he thought I was crazy! I probably am.
 We dressed up as cows for a free lunch at Chick-fil-a! hahaha. 
 E&M: cool babes ready for the sunshine!
We've gotten a lot of swimming in this summer! The puddle jumper life vest is the greatest swim floaty ever made! Mekonen was freaked out to be in the water this year (we think from Veggie Tales Jonah), and he couldn't keep himself upright in the regular life vests. This thing is amazing and now he is swimming all over and jumping in! 
We've had a lot of fun at Garfield Park pool with lots of shooting water fountains and water slides. 
Summertime treats! and boy has Mekonen had his share of popsicles, chocolate milk, fruit snacks, watermelon, etc. etc.!!!

Mekonen has been enjoying our backyard a lot this summer since we can't always get across the street to the park with Evie's morning nap. Mekonen just LOVES pushing his dump truck around, riding his rocket ship, and playing with his water table. 
We've had our share of summer storms and rainy days the past few months. Our rainy days have included books and flashlights inside our tent...
 and days where Mommy stays in her pajamas and puts no make-up on! HA!
And one awesome and fun trip to PA to visit Grandma, Grandpa, and all the cousins!!!
