More fun this summer

I can’t believe it’s already August and the summer will soon be over!  How did it go so fast?  We still have a lot planned for the coming weeks, and we’ve been enjoying some fun family time, too.

Tonight we went out in the backyard after dinner. I got a real kick out of watching Anya just be a kid. She climbed up her slide and gleefully shouted, “I did it!” before swooshing down. She tried to run up the hill, fell, and giggled hysterically as she rolled around in the grass. That led to a fun game of being chased by Daddy, then a game of chasing Mommy, both of which seemed to require lots of Anya time on the ground. We were having so much fun, and it was a bummer to call it a night and head inside for bath and bedtime.

This past Sunday we spent some time at the township pool and had a blast. Here’s a video of Anya and Lex playing in the water:

I really like this picture of the two of them:

Oh, we also had visitors this weekend! Our friends Jake and Dana Rubin came up from Washington, DC, to visit us for a bit. Anya hasn’t seen them in a long time, but they came bearing gifts (always a smart move with a toddler) and she warmed up very quickly. She’s still talking about them two days later!

Anya had a blast walking around in Dana’s heels. Too bad Mommy only wears sandals and sneakers!

Hopefully we’ll be able to make a trip down to DC sometime soon to see them again (Maybe in September???).  It had been too long!

    Wow! A tradtion passed from generation to generation: Anya got from her daddy a zoom and a voom, just like her daddy got from his daddy!

    She requests it every time we go to the pool!
