This & That

I really don't like filling a post with numerous photos, but we've been busy with a number of outings lately and I just haven't been able to keep up with the posting. So, if you aren't one for photos feel free to pass up this post.

If you are sticking around for the entertainment, here's a little of what we've been up to:

End of the school year field trip (aka Gianna's longest van trip so far)to the big city that included a visit to the Children's Museum.

Lego World exhibit currently at the Museum

Art Park on the rooftop

We also visited our State Capitol where daddy showed us around. He's on a legislative committee as part of his job, so he occasionally attends meetings there. The kids were so fascinated with the capitol and its beauty. Jonah was so funny as he kept asking Reed, "where's your office dad?". We had to keep explaining that daddy just goes there for meetings and isn't quite important enough to have an office there. He did think it was pretty cool that daddy got to go work at the big capitol though. (Truthfully, I agree)

The Rotunda

The Senate Chambers

And we couldn't pass up the Cathedral just down the street when we were so close.

Lily enjoyed six weeks of soccer again this spring. She tried the program a couple years ago in the fall and chose to try it again this year. She was eager to head to the field each Monday and Thursday evening in the cold, heat or rain/mud. While still not really into competition, it did prove to be a good experience again for her to work with teammates and work on her skills.

We joined our homeschool group last week on a field trip to a Nature Learning Center. The kids learned how to compile a nature journal and as we walked along the trails and around the buildings they recorded their findings. Lots of birds to explore and listen for along the way.

Lastly, Lily had her spring piano recital and all her grandparents were able to attend. Lily did excellent performing one song solo and the other as a duet with her teacher.

We've been busy! Can you tell that the weather is beautiful and it's summertime? We're enjoying every minute of it.


  1. Gianna is getting so big! WHat great family times and pictures. I think you had asked about the big van/garage situation, and we don't have any problems because we don't have a garage ;)

  2. What a busy week indeed! Your fieldtrip to the fun was that?! I love a good children's museum :) The cathedral pictures are gorgeous. I love to see a cathedral when I can. Congrats to Lily on her spring recital!! Yeah!!


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
