Summer brings a lot of playdates to our favorite places! We've hit Idylwood, Houghton, Newcastle, and Meydenbauer in the last few weeks. The water is usually cold enough to keep Reagan away and the sand toys are entertaining for both the kids. This has been so much easier than last year when Reagan was still adicted to her snowsuit in 85 degree weather and preferred eating sand.
This was my second Ride the Ducks activity with the au pairs.
Our transit system is not the most comprehensive for beginners, but after missing our connection and getting off at the wrong stop, we made it there and back! I didn't have to pay for parking!
Reagan was more than glad to model her new pigtails and 4th of July outfit!
The park that hosted the Bellevue Strawberry Festival has an inviting splash pad for kids. I had no idea!
Derby Days was a success. I stood in the sun for 13 hours and acquired a fabulous tan. (Read: sunburn)
We were next to a booth with a great fishing game and across from us, the Rotary Club was teaching kids how to drive!
We passed out over 500 brochures while some fantastic au pairs entertained kids with face painting and helped the kids with a Ring Toss!
We headed out to the Bothell Parade for our second year! Reagan seemed to like her outfit, but threw a crazy tantrum over wearing tights with it. I finally gave in and let her wear them even though it was 95 degrees out!
