Before picking up the boys, in the entry I set up some new outdoor toys, craft supplies, my favorite childhood book (The Castle in the Attic) and two bridge activity booklets.
Naturally, I had to decorate our super sweet minivan too. The neighbors and police officer that passed by looked at me like I was nuts as I taped up streamers and blew up balloons in the elementary school's colors. Did I mention it was raining?
The boys were NOT expecting this at all and Ian just kept laughing. Somehow the balloons inside the van just blew their mind.
Neither boy seemed too sure how to get in the van no matter how much I told them the streamers were not precious to me. Before heading home we just had to swing by Dunkin Donuts for a special treat and the child in the van next to our in the parking lot was quite jealous. Mommy success!
They're too big!!!
Summer party time!
We didn't know at the time that this would be our last summer as a family of four. I am so happy that the boys and I spent so much quality time together since next year we will have a little baby demanding our attention. We were extra thrilled to have Ryan home too! We even managed some fun family activities despite Ryan's always crazy and unpredictable schedule.
