I have loved spending this summer with you. The big plans, the last-minute plans, the do-nothing days, the errands, the neighborhood play. It has all been so relaxing and fun! But I'm not going to lie...when your grandparents requested the honor of your presence for a full 24-hour period without us - I was pretty excited! This is only the kind of excitement possible knowing that you, too, would be having a great time. Which you did.
You got to go with your cousins to a Wild West place complete with panning for gold, horse rides, a shoot out and great dining! Then you went to a railroad museum and back to your grandparents' house for dinner and a bonfire! It was a full, entertaining day that you are still coming down off of!

So thank you to your grandparents for giving the kids the great time - and us this time.
And I before this weekend, the kids and I had some bonding time that was anticipated since Easter, when my sister and I got the kids accessories for their bikes. We drove our bikes to a fantastic trail that connects towns north of us. We figured a 7-mile round trip on both sides of the river with a stop in the middle for lunch at McDonald's. It was a great time!
