Kidzapalooza 2010

One of the best parts of summer for me is when my niece and nephew are in town for their annual visit. It is that time again and I am loving it.

I think what I love the most of these two is how they have accepted Dagny into their lives. They don’t find it a burden to do things that a 32 month old finds fun. They just get right in the mix.

I am very lucky to have these three wonderful kids in my life.

We went to the beach earlier in the week. Dagny has been wanting to go and play in the sand for quite some time. She had a great time with her cousins building “castles”. Even though she is still not a huge fan of sand getting on her, she has gotten better with it.

My Mom came along and enjoyed her three favorite grandchildren.

On our way home, Dagny and Erika took a ride on a “horse”.

Saturday, we decided to go to Tinker Nature Park in our old neighborhood. It’s a pleasant walk when it’s really hot outside because of all the trees.

Of course, the battery on our camera died as we started our walk. Boo-hoo. We were only able to take a few.

When did she get so big?

Here she is calling Little Bear. Yes, Little Bear is still very much a part of our lives.

As we were heading to our car a woman stopped and told us there was free ice cream and music in the barn. Um, free ice cream and music? Of course we were up for that.

And, today we (minus Lil D and my Mom) went to see Inception. What a fantastic movie. I had an idea of what it was going in, but it far exceed my exception. People actually clapped after the movie, I can’t remember the last time that’s happened. Go see it if you’re into movies like this. Enough said.
