Officially summer time.

Strawberry picking.  We tried out a different place this year and it was more of a wild strawberry field.  Sam pretty much just kept falling over, squishing strawberries left and right.  Poppy ate every single strawberry she picked.  I managed to pick 1 quart and then headed back to the strawberry stand and bought every pre-picked berry they had.

...........

Father's day.  Marc and Poppy decided that some kayaking and fishing were in order.  Sammy was prepared for anything and everything...

worm fascination...

peaceful day spent with the most awesome dad I know...

 ...............

"Making potions."  Mixing sand, dirt and water.  Entertainment for these 2 for hours...
(check out Sam's one-eyed smile in almost every picture lately!)

Poppy's favorite outfit in the world.  (from my friend's etsy shop)  I was so relieved it still fit her this year- she would wear this skirt every day if she could...

............

You can find us at the farmer's market every Saturday morning from now til the end of summer.  Poppy loves picking out her own fruit and veggies and meeting up with friends from school...

Poppy being a "guest reader" for her class...


the last day of pre-k...

The kids did a little recital of the songs they've learned throughout the year.  It was really cute.  Poppy was really into the songs.  A few of the other parents commented on how "intense" and "serious" she was about her singing.  Yes, indeed.

The directors of the school told me Poppy should get the award for being the biggest butterfly.  She started out so quiet and shy two years ago.  She cried for a long time even right up until last summer when we dropped her off.  This year was a different story.  She loved going to school every day to learn new things and make new friends.  She even had her own "bike gang" on the playground...


Sammy was an "unofficial" student in Poppy's class.   Every day he begged me to let him stay and play with the big kids...

Poppy on her first day 2 years ago...

And on her last day...
I cannot even believe how much this girl has grown!!!

............

Have you seen the new Doc McStuffins show?  It is the cutest thing ever and Poppy is absolutely obsessed with it.  She was using all of these make-shift "doctor" toys so we finally broke down and bought her a proper toy doctors kit.

Playhouse progress...

And Claire is OBSESSED with Doc McStuffins. She has turned her closet into a clinic! Love it! We have to get them together this summer!

Brendan is OBSESSED with that Doc show too. We all find ourselves singing that catchy song..."I feel better so much better...." Andy has a real stethoscope and Brendan loves listening to all of our heartbeats.

Could those two be any damn cuter? Seriously. When I saw the picture of Poppy riding the bike and I thought about the first photo I ever saw of her. So tiny and small in your Beco carrier. Insane how time if flying by.

Oh my - Summer fun indeed! I think the picture of Sam all ready for fishing is fantastic! The kids are going to love that playhouse!
