I've been hearing the ice cream van drive by in the evenings. B&B have never said a word about the music. They didn't know what it was. Tonight I heard it at the perfect time...just as we had all got up from eating dinner. We ran outside and flagged down the ice cream man for dessert.

It really would be ok with me if it was always summer. Summer is my favorite season and with weather like we have had this year it makes me wish every day was like today (maybe we need to move even further south).

Tonight we are at P-Pa and Nana's house. We've spent the day riding golf carts, feeding the horse and donkey corn shucks, looking at cows, and playing outside. For dinner P-Pa grilled out ribs. First Jay pulled some meat off the bone for B&B to have with their dinner, but then Brooks decided he wanted to eat it off the bone. First P-Pa and Daddy helped.

Two cute little bottom teeth. She's already working on getting her top ones, too. She's very good at using them to chew. Which is good because she loves to feed herself! Some things Lil B likes to eat on her own: bread, baby rice cakes, puffs, bananas, yogurt melts, shredded cheese, bits of cracker. She's a messy eater, but she sure enjoys doing it on her own.

The morning started with an early walk for everyone. It was much cooler than usual, but that didn't stop Bailee from taking a nap.
After the walk, we checked out garden beds. The squash plant is really spreading out, and we have our first tomato!
All this activity makes for hungry kids. Brooks took snack into his own hands!
Today, we had Pops and Grandmama over to visit the new house. All the visiting made for some tired youngsters!
Momma led art class on the patio. There was great sidewalk art to be found.
After dinner, I took them to the playground for a little fun time. They really enjoy playing there and taking the trail.
We took advantage of perfect weather and stayed busy all day. It was a great day!

I've been slacking on blogging due to working and still unpacking boxes. As usual, we've still made time to do some fun stuff with the kids.
Our "old" neighbors from Hickory Hills are now our neighbors again. We are excited about it. Not only do we really like them but their daughter Katherine is soon going to be old enough to be a great babysitter. They came over to catch up and welcome us to the neighborhood with cupcakes!
B&B also got to push a kid cart around Kroger for the first time. The first thing they wanted to do was get their favorite food...Brynn wanted blueberries and Brooks wanted carrots. We won't talk about the toilet paper and gift card display that ended up on the ground.:)

Today, the Preds were having an open to the public practice for their prospect development camp. Both of the kids really enjoy going to games with us, so this was a great way to fill part of the day. There was only a hundred or so people there, which is perfect for 2 energetic kids!!
Brooks was able to get right behind the action and watch them shoot the puck.
They had the most important hockey food to Brynn! I'm pretty sure she wouldn't want to go if they didn't have nachos!
Brooks really ate up being able to get up and stand. He spent most of the practice watching. The highlight was when the zamboni would come out. They had to wave at the driver with each pass.
A player gave them some pucks. They held on to them the entire time, except for when Brooks tried to throw his back on the ice. Lucky for him the puck hit the glass. They left with 2 each and showed them to everyone they saw.
We had a great time today. They really enjoy going into the city and experiencing things. They asked a lot of questions and seemed to try and understand what was going on. It is really fun to take them places. Even when you get stuck in gridlock traffic due to the Vice President visiting!
