Little Bear

We visited Little Bear with Kirsten, Erin and Kathy!  It was so fun for Blake this year.

The first year we went, five years ago, Blake was much more content to walk Little Bear than ride him.

This year he had a good long ride.  Kirsten was kind enough to walk with him, and sometimes gallop with him, for ages!

A Day at the Zoo

First thing we did was run to the gorilla climb to beat the crowds.  As expected it was AWESOME!  You need to wear closed toed shoes, so next year I am definitely not wearing flip flops!

Blake was wicked brave this year.  He explored the entire second level and went up to the third for a few of the elements.  Way to go buddy!  Scott was also very, very brave.IMG_0917 IMG_0895 IMG_0859 IMG_0857While Blake was up there he pointed and shouted LOOK!  We looked and there was a fully opened peacock.  Cool!

IMG_0991We walked around the Mayan ruins and found this waterfall.

A few more baseball pictures…

IMG_0750 IMG_0765So many of our Tuesday ball practice nights have been crap weather and cancelled.  In fact, the first few weeks we were home were called Tornado Tuesdays.  We’ve had a lot of games but almost no practices.  This Tuesday we had a practice – Yay! – so we worked on some skills and then had a little game.

Blake has tackled the monkey bars the summer and he has (almost) mastered them.  Nice job, buddy!

SHAZ & TONY

Shaz and Tony came to Stratford! Yeah!  They say it’s to see some shows at the festival, but I’m pretty sure it’s really to see ME!  And maybe Blake and Scott as well.

It is so nice to see my awesome friends every summer.  I love them so much!
