Similar to birthdays, we celebrate the Fourth of July for an extended period. This year it started even earlier since our park had a party the weekend before the holiday. Games, musicians, aquarium touch tanks, fire trucks, crafts....just to name a few things. Love the Fourth and love CCP (Christopher Columbus Park)!
Richard's class was lucky enough to have a school trip to the State House. We got to see every room with personal tours from our Senator and House Representative. It was pretty amazing! They got to touch things, sit in their seats, go out onto the balcony in the front of the building and check out the Governors Office. We all learned so much (I am now realizing how much I forget from school!). Well once we got past the kid who wondered where the steak was because he thought we were going to the steak house!! I love these kids and the opportunities they are getting to grow and learn.
We had an awesome weekend in Monroe visiting with cousins and old friends. My best friend Juliane flew in for the reunion so we were all able to hang out. The kids haven't seen each other since last year, but it never matters. We also got to celebrate our buddy Olivia's birthday. It is nice to have good friends around the country! And so fun that my kids are friends with my old friend's kids (does that even make sense??).
Since we were in NY for my high school reunion, the kids and I went with Babci to the Bear Mountain Zoo. This is a great little place with local rescued animals. It was a beautiful day to enjoy the walk through the zoo and the rest of Bear Mountain park. We finished the trip with a picnic lunch on the lake and of course the playground.
