The summer season has ended and we have moved on to our Fall Routine now; a new preschool, new hip hop dance class and the beginnings of a soccer career. But before we move on, I thought I’d document some of the fun we had in August, the bookend to a really nice summer in So Cal.
Birthday parties, the best ones have bounce house waterslides according to little Miss. Her fierce pose here makes me LOL.
The pool is always a blast when you are with your cousins and a few water play Barbie Dolls at Gigi and Grandpa’s house. We have graduated to Barbies by the way. No turning back now.
Afternoon playdates with Jane.
The OC Fair, most fun was the pig races. Unicorn and rainbow face paint is so her.
Bay Days and first rides in the kayak. Hard to believe my baby girl is big enough for such things, but there she was, no fear at all.
Fun trip to the Bay Area to visit Cousin CC. We hit Fairyland with friends, had a great day in the city and ended up visiting more family in San Rafael and catching the Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead Songs and Storytime at Terrapin Crossroads. Stella loves her CC very much!
End of summer playdate with our LB Playgroup. It was so hot, look at their sweaty brows.
Trial day at her new preschool. She was a good sport and was very excited to be there.
Knockerball and Taco Truck Birthday Party for Sofie’s Dad who turned the big 4-0!
Dress-up playdates with Grace.
Grady’s Birthday at Chuck E. Cheese. These two were super cheesy cute together!
Fun staycation at a little resort in Anaheim. Great “Pirates Cove” waterpark and a separate pool too. Just Ally, me and the girls and they were in heaven. Such a fun overnight getaway. The Barbies loved it too.
Adventure City, which ended up being such an awesome little amusement park, affordable, no crowds and the kids had a blast.
Brave little jumper at the Lakewood Mall. She had a blast!
Still loves to paint and begs to paint all the time! See her happy face.
First soccer practice. This is gonna be cute!
Fun afternoon at the aquarium.
Goodbye summer, you were very good to us!
