summer break week #9

Summer break is coming to an end.  There's only a week and a half left, and I am determined to enjoy what's left.

On day 41 (Monday), we took our daughters to the "close park" again to ride their scooters.  The park is within walking distance from our house.  They really enjoy riding their scooters.  While they rode their scooters, I walked around the park to get in some activity.  We stayed, again, until sunset.  I love our evenings together.

On day 42 (Tuesday), I took them to the library for their final summer program.  This week was a balloon show.  My daughters really enjoyed it. He was very talented.

On day 43 (Wednesday), we took our daughters to our city's Farmer's Market for another evening walk.  It's not a super fun activity, but they always enjoy being outdoors.  day 42 
Afterwards, we went out for ice cream, which would definitely be classified as a super fun "activity." 
day 42 (2)On day 44 (Thursday), they went to grandma's house for cooking and embroidery.  It had been a few weeks since they had gone, so they were happy to go.  My oldest had a doctor's appointment earlier that day, but she dramatically insisted that she WOULD NOT miss out on going to grandma's.  
On day 45 (Friday), we made glow stick lanterns right before they went to bed, so they could use them as night lights.  They loved these!
