Just a Jolly Look at June

Really, there almost isn’t a point in posting a stand alone June blog post after my run down of the days of crazy. June is always busy but with Ken in charge of a major project at work that kept us near home and cancelled most of our exciting and travel required plans… not so much on the spontaneous and crazy. You can read all about the crazy days HERE, and the new baby in the house HERE.20180606_145647

In fact, June is VERY photo heavy what with the new pet in the house. So there is an additional MOMO post to follow this one HERE.20180616_001223

Of course Neko-chan still got love.IMG_20180622_091733_479

We did get back on our walk to the YMCA for morning programming and swimming, etc routine. The twins are too old for club (in fact, Emanuel is on the verge of too old himself) but the other 3 are finding it entertaining. We added run club on Thursdays during the day for the oldest 2 (hopefully they will run a 5K or 2 by the end of summer) and dance Friday nights for Miss Echo.20180622_161133

May 2018

Just to prove that I am, at least, in the current year! Why is it so hard to keep up with this this year?? I really wish I knew.

May definitely marked warmer weather. And we embraced it. Walks around the neighborhood to play Pokémon is always a great way to get outside.IMG_20180502_163527_498

The YMCA was, as usual, our usual fun place to be.20180528_083827

Spring was firmly here, sunshine, outside fun. In fact, due to work and lack of ability to travel we made our Wednesdays Walkabout Wednesdays. We even hunted for fairy doors!IMG_20180524_120946_141

Saw the Lego exhibit at the Science Museum… separate post to share all the wonders we saw HERE.

A trip to a different YMCA that had a splash pad AND hot tub. Don’t worry we still love our local one best.20180530_174602
