We've been enjoying all the mild weather we've gotten this summer. 70s and 80s in July are unheard of here in Arkansas! We've been to the lake with my family several times, set up Elliott's pool and water table in the back yard, visited the local splash park with friends, checked out story time at the children's library, joined the crazies for dollar day at the zoo, made a trip to Arkadelphia to visit Gary's family at the "Grant get-away", and frequented Sonic for half price shakes more times than I can count.
Elliott has reached the age where he is starting to entertain himself some, so we've enjoyed sitting back and watching him sing and play this summer. He is full of energy and personality!

Summer is only half way over, and it's getting easier to get out and about with both kids, so we've still got a few things on our summer bucket list to check off. Stay tuned for homemade popsicles, a visit to the sno cone stand, and a picnic at the park.
