End of Summer Fun!

We had a summer visit from Buzz and Rudy (aka the girl elf formerly known as Rudolph). They said that they were on vacation and wanted to come swimming at our house. They also let the kids know what they were doing great and what they might need to work on a little. ;)

 This summer has been the Summer of Science. We made some play doh.  
 Nana had her Annual Camp Nana and she went all out. It was daylight to dark fun for an entire week!!
 Kool Aid stand. 
 Fun at Fast Lanes.
 More of Aiden's science experiments. This night, I went to the laundry room for no more than 2 minutes and came back to the kitchen and Aiden had play doh boiling on the stove, eggs floating (or sinking) in cups of water and he was trying to set salt on fire. Crazy kiddo!! I see BIG things in his future! He is just constantly going and thinking and figuring things out. 

 Eggs float in salt water and sink in plain water. 
 We made a trip to the splash pad. I did not get rave reviews. It probably would have been a lot more fun before they knew how to swim. It is a really neat place though and not a complete flop. 

 We also made a trip to a new-ish museum in the area, Crystal Bridges. We decided this exhibit looked like giant robot poop. ;)
 It really is a beautiful place. 
 We needed to use up some soon to be old bread. The geese and ducks were really appreciative.

 During the last week of summer we had a Friends Night Out. After dinner at Chick Fil A, Emma and Ella went to Diary of Wimpy Kid with Ella's mom and I took Aiden and Rylan to Ice Age. We all liked our movies. I can't believe how much they have grown up! I remember taking Aiden and Rylan to Despicable Me when Emma and Ella went to Ramona and Beezus. They were so little and we made so many trips to the bathroom!

We didn't get everything marked off of our Summer Bucket List, but we did lots and lots of it and it was a great summer!!
