Addie's Theater Camp

When I asked Addie what sort of summer camp/classes she wanted to take...(soccer? dance? art?) She picked Theater Camp very quickly...So I signed her up and she loved it.  There she is with her friend Lily from school.  She loved it so much that she auditioned for another fall play last weekend and made it...Peter Pan! 
 Mark your calendars for the first weekend in October!

Safety Town!

The girls loved their week of Safety Town and can tell you all sorts of things they learned about street safety, water safety, dog safety, gun safety, stranger safety, bike safety and more.  They really cover a lot in safety town!  Plus a field trip to the fire station and police station.  It was so cute!

So fun!

(Doesn't she look so young?)

Why, carnival creators, are you so inviting to small children?
Your rides are questionable at best, but oh so inviting...

Not sure Addie was in love with this one!

Akron Zoo

Every year or two we venture down to the Akron Zoo.  It's a bit of a drive, but always worth it...
This time they had a special "Weird Creatures" exhibit which mean there were jellyfish....
Carnivorous Plants

And this guy...Sam loves a good octopus but they can be elusive to see in a cage...he tells me it's because I'm bad luck at zoos...Nana is good luck.  Luckily she was this one was easy to see.  And of the best I've seen in a zoo or an aquarium...

The ever amazing penguins which we don't have at the CLE zoo

They recently added a slide which goes through the otter exhibit.  See Addie in it?
The grizzly was so close too!
If you're local, it's worth a drive!

Summer Fun (so far)

Summer break is the epitome of kid heaven right? 
Ain't too bad for me either...
We did some serious bungee jumping with the big kids during safety town week...

Have hit the library 6 times, at least.

Have done a lot of this...

Went to Playground World for their free play time...

I'd say the summer if off to a great start...

This one's for you Mom...1990's recital costumes...

My Mom recently dropped off some of my old recital costumes which seriously thrilled my girls...

loved this dress...but man those shoulder pads...
She could have been in a Paula Abdul video for sure...

Hope you enjoyed this blast from the 90's.  The funny part is...that's maybe 1/3 or the costumes!
