We have been enjoying the lake several times this month. It is great fun to spend the day with friends or sometimes just us. Now that we have gotten it all down, hoping to go lots more before fall hits. Many of the parks we go to are all around lake Champlain but we have tried out a few smaller lakes and they are just as beautiful!
Since Issabelle is sitting up we thought we would try out a bike ride. She is fine sitting in the trailer with Harkin but she decided to cry pretty much the whole time. She was hungry and these days she will not nurse when we are out in public. Any little noise she gets distracted and just wants to look around. So she was happy in my arms but not in the trailer. The boys rode for a little bit and Issabelle and I had to stop and wait for them to come back and pick us up. We will try another day when she is better rested and just fed.
Every morning my little girl loves to sit and play us some music. She is usually joined by Harkin within his drum, followed by all the instruments in the box.
It is a great wake up call to their big brothers. (they disagree:)
The library's theme this summer is superheros. For story time they read books about firefighters and police. Then they had a real fireman and policeman come and talk to the kids and at the end we got to check out their trucks. Harkin had a great time, with Landon being a wonderful help. William was volunteering as part of the teen program. How crazy is that - he can be considered a teen by some.
It was a nice morning and now that Harkin is a bit older we may start going to story time on a regular basis.
