The girls and I visited the Kite Festival at Ronan Park Saturday, which I cannot believe we were at with a tiny new Annie just last year. Maddie flew her kite like a champ after some help from the kite expert/volunteer who was gracious and led me back from a crisis when I could not figure out how to get the kite in the air. Maddie got that kite allllll the way up until the string ran out.
We slid down the grassy hill on potato sacks, had a hot dog care of our local police station and indulged in a little self-face painting with Dot Art. We are already looking forward to next year's!
Sunday morning we set our alarm for 5:30 so we could be the first ones in the lot at Old Silver Beach, which is quickly becoming my favorite spot to beach it up. Probably has a lot to do with the water being just warm enough that I can actually swim, or the bathroom and showers being right there for afterwards, but also, so pretty. Maddie couldn't help getting some of her own pictures too.Also, might I point out how smart my AIL is for bringing a baby pool to fill with seawater. Annie got to splash around and stay cool all while under both and umbrella and our watchful eye. Genius.
This week has been busy, lots of good stuff going on at work and lots of good stuff going on in the evenings working on some great events with my run club. In between I just say yes to quick trips to the park before dinner and a little extra time watching Star Wars before bed because SUMMER.
Maddie is at an acting camp this week and proclaims every night "it was SO GREAT" before promptly passing out exactly two minutes into any before-bed movie. Annie looks like she has lightened her hair about ten shades and has taken to bringing me her flip flops and pointing to the door because even she knows we have to soak it all in while we can.
Happy Wednesday, y'all. Godspeed to the long weekend!
