Busy Bees

Well it seems like we've been practically everywhere. We left Wednesday for RV camping at Lake Siskiyou which was fantastic. The girls loved sleeping in the RV, swimming, fishing with Daddy and Papa, and finding giant pine cones on our nature excursions. We roasted weenies, smores, and more smores... it was a blast.

Then we headed to Grammie and Papa's house Saturday to swim in their fancy pool. We literally swam three times a day and we are now officially tan. The weather was beautiful, the pool was warm, and the BBQ was always going. I even stood in my bikini and flipped the ribs over on the BBQ and then went back to swimming until they needed to get flipped again. Honestly, for our family it just doesn't get any better. Dave and my dad went one day to Lassen for some MAN fishing on my dad's boat. Dave caught a huge fish and the girls were so proud of him. My dad came home empty handed. So sad. Then we watched the big fireworks show and eventually we had to go home. I did contemplate staying another week but the ladies have their activities...

Tuesday we went to dance class. Miss Renae added in a few more moves and the girls were loving it. Ava is a great dancer. It is as if she were made for dance like Olivia is for running. Man, that kid can run. Yesterday we went with friends to the movies and then met up with another mom from preschool for a play date at the water park. It was very hot for me but since the kids were wet they didn't mind. Today we went to see ET at the dollar theater with some other friends. This was the girls first time at seeing ET and since it was not a cartoon I questioned how long we'd stay but they LOVED it. They asked a million questions along the way but Ava said it was her favorite movie. Tomorrow we have another water park play date and then soccer on Saturday... Somehow I thought summer meant sitting around doing nothing...I have yet had that experience. Next week we have a movie/water park play date with about 10 of Liv's friends... When does school start anyway?

So here's a few pics of last week's adventures...
