Summer/Spring Fun!

We have been on Summer break for almost 2 weeks, and yesterday the nice weather finally kicked in. We have had a very wet and dreary spring here, and literally had 23 days of rain in May, and pretty much the rest of the days were overcast. In light of that last week we had to think of some creative ways to entertain ourselves. Here are some pictures of the fun:

Buttercup loves to dance so she had fun dancing! We all had to join her as well.

Sweetpea Decided we should have a play and everyone dressed up!

I'm not really sure what the play was exactly intended to be about but it slowly morphed into a version of Tangled!

Buster trying to be a villain!

So frightening!

Grandpa forgot his hat after game time on Wednesday!

Buster had an idea for the kids to make things out of paper.

I set out paper, cardboard, scissors, glue, tape, and markers. They had a bunch of fun creating.

Buster took this picture of the fort he made!

Sweetpea made a drawing of the family!

Since it was too cold outside the kids did some swimming in the tub with finger paint, and shaving cream.

We ordered some caterpillars in the mail!

The butterflies began hatching last weekend while we were at Busters soccer tournament!

We released them into our yard this week!

Right now the kids are outside enjoying the 70 degree day and it is supposed to be a lovely weekend. We will have to enjoy it from our house since our mini van is in the shop for a little body work.

Your weather sounds perfect! It is cool(90) here for now. I do not look forward to 100 degree days. I think summer should be 70-80s!
