Pretty much the only activity that required my attention was the filling of water balloons for a water balloon fight in the backyard. They had so much fun we ended up having two. That was quite a few water balloons to fill!
Love that Lexi just chucks hers into no-man's land
uh-oh - an attack on mommy!
every once in awhile I see a picture of Declan that reminds me of his younger self - this happens to be one of those
Oh the cuteness of three year old piggies! I just can't get enough :)
We spent a lot of time at the park. George asked to try Declan's bike out. To my surprise (and his mother's) he pretty much taught himself how to ride a two wheeler! His bike still has training wheels on it. Look at this kid go!
Most of the day these two were in Dec's room creating Lego cities
After BBQing, we made our traditional sleepover dessert - Pazookie!
I was curious to see how the night would play out. It started out with George sleeping on the top bunk. After some moving around a bit, both boys ended up sleeping on the bottom. We didn't hear a peep from either one all night!
Early morning silliness!
We headed over to the train station early the next morning, to ensure enough time for train watching and to pick up the beloved card board coasters. We were pleased that Lily and Ella had the same idea :)
The fair crew (minus Quinn who wasn't there yet)
Train riding fun!
Mass exit with our excited kidlets!
Some serious lovers of trains, these two!
Next we caught the bus to the fair - the excitement never ends for this crew!
All the city transportation fun had the Abbott girls needing a snooze
I am savoring moments like these - the hand holding. So innocent. I know it will be over all too soon!
Our first stop was the pig races! In fact we had to book it over there and even though we rushed, we only saw the last race. :( Bummer. At least we saw something - those pig races are hilarious. The only picture I caught ironically is missing pigs.
Pony rides were next on the agenda!
We had just enough time for three fair rides before we had to get back to the bus stop to make our 3:00 train. Kind of a tight day, but so much fun! Next year I am thinking a wrist band and fair rides all day because these kids had a ridiculous amount of fun running from one ride to the next!
The expressions on the first car ride are priceless!
Next up some roller coaster fun!
The final ride was on the helicopter. The little girls were cracking me up - they didn't move it up and down, but instead stayed bouncing along the bottom - laughing the whole time!
When I put Declan to bed that night and asked him what his pafvorite part of having GEorge sleep over he said, "When we peed together. George calls it crossing swords." OMG. What?!!
And that about sums up a great 30 hours of non-stop summer fun!
