Thursday was Nora's last day of school, so we decided to have some friends over for dinner.
After eating pizza, the children enjoyed ice cream cones, courtesy of Jodi and Miles. I love Nora and Ayla snuggled up together on the bench in their costumes.
Later, we got out the play dough ice cream set and they all got busy. There was a lot of play outside, too. It was a really fun night, and a great start to summer vacation!
We spend almost all of our time in Grandma and Grandpa's pool in the summer. This year, the kids decided they wanted to help Grandpa clean it out. It wasn't very warm out, but they all threw on their rubber boots, selected appropriate tools and climbed in!
It is currently 42 degrees and windy, so I am not sure when they will enjoy the fruits of their labor, but they were pretty proud of their hard work.
