--afton reading a book to malachi: these 2 are best book buds, they love reading together, and afton's a lot more confident with him than with me
|try it at home, it's kinda hard to see in the double layer santa cup|
|we especially love giant chunky babies!!!|
--dadfest: this is a 5K that's especially geared for families (the weekend of father's day), unfortunately paul had to work, but the kids and i rode the train up to richardson early in the morning and i ran while they played with some friends, then we all played a bit more, enjoying free samples (frozen greek yogurt was a favorite), playing in the water fountains, and afton climbed a tall rock wall, i wish i'd timed her, she was that fast! and the kids got little bead necklaces that they loved.
|the kids had a 100 yd dash, both girls did great! and i love that they get bibs too|
--father's day: the kids made paul a shirt for father's day with roads and buildings, etc all over the back, the point is he can lay down and they can drive cars all over him like a little kid-massage. he laughed, but he wore it on our family walk that evening :)
|this one's not technically from father's day, but i thought it fit!|
also, ms juli is an artist, here's a link to one of her works, i think you may recognize the subject!
|the kids had a great time playing with some old peacock feathers though!|
--malachi got this great new card-table tent for his birthday, it's technically a little too big for our kid-sized table, but the kids don't mind! it's so cute and they love pulling it out.
--and this is a picture i took that really has nothing to do with anything, but it makes me think of grandpa williamson, so i have to include it
|malachi was pouring over the train calander one day, he'd get excited on each page and point and yell "train!"|
we made this yesterday:
that's right! a count down chain til school starts!!! eek!(ps, i don't usually let my children run around dressed like that, but it still seems to happen more often than i care to admit)
ps again, fourth of july and family reunion still WILL come! promise!
