Growing Out On A Limb

Summer pics … found!

This is so not like me.  I’m not sure how it happened.  But I was looking through my phone last night and there they were… pictures I hadn’t posted.  Some of them from the end of July!  I’m either losing my touch or have three little critters that demand my attention and make me forget things like this.  Or a bit of both.

The first week of August, I had the boys both enrolled in summer camps offered by the city’s rec department.  They were cheap, only a week long, and, best of all, I managed to find two that were the same week and overlapping times.  Emery, Eleanor, and I still had to find something to kill an hour or so before Emery’s started.  Insert the playground below, located in Bedford.  IMG_20140730_095319

I know you can’t see the playground structure but it’s a decent one.  And with views like this, I liked hanging out there too!  IMG_20140730_095335For part of the week, we had cousin Megan and her friend Kerrington visiting, as well as Ali and Aaliyah.  So we went back to this park for a second day.

IMG_20140804_095814We went to the waterfront for a picnic lunch.  It was one of the last days of the busker festival so we watched a busker doing neat tricks on stilts.  The boys played on the little playground down there for a while.

And a couple of pool shots… IMG_20140807_141217At the end of the summer, the boys are both doing full running “cannonballs” into the pool.  Oliver swims quite well without his life jacket, though Emery is still perfectly comfortable with leaving his on.
