Davey 8-10 months, Clara 2 years

Summer is always fun and last summer was no exception.  It was even more of a good time because we had TWO little loves to share it with.  Here are pictures from the fist half of the summer (mid-May till mid-July 2013).

Davey pushing his walker

The kids fell asleep while Michael and I went for a morning run on a beautiful trail.  Yes, Clara's hair is a total mess!

Sweet girl loves to ride the carousel.

Davey did this a lot last summer.  We don't think he liked the feel of crawling in the grass.

the double tickle :)

riding the train at Storybook Land

Dancing is a daily tradition at our house.  The kids just love when we turn on the music and all dance around the kitchen or living room.

We spent lots of time at the pool.

Clara loved the sand area at the pool and would have been content to play there the whole time instead of swim if we would have let her.

We often took walks around our neighborhood.  Clara would push her baby and I'd push my baby.

Clara loved stopping to watch the neighbor's windmill.

Davey liked it too!

paddle boating

We rented a surrey bicycle and rode around Wylie Park while waiting for the water show to start.

Clara won this slip and slide at Michael's company's picnic this summer.

We don't mess around when it comes to watermelon. ;)

celebrating our 7th anniversary

Thanks again to auntie Em who watched Clara and Davey so we could have a rare date to celebrate!  And as if that wasn't enough, we came home to the most precious anniversary gift.  Love you Emily!
