Heritage Park

We have been crossing off our Summer Bucket List and already having so much fun. We even decided to make a second trip to Heritage Park because I had forgotten my camera the first time around and it was too cute to see the kiddos feeding all of those ducks.
I grabbed some pics around the park so it's only fitting to jot down what they are up to right now.

First up, Mister Austin. His favorite movie right now is Monsters Inc. I have been dying to take him to the movie theatre for the first time and even though it's summer, I made sure to add it to the bucket list. It'd be hard to choose between that and Despicable Me 2 since he loves them both! I brought him home a silly 'Mike from Monsters Inc' Pez dispenser from our vacation and he has been carrying it around everywhere and even taking it to bed with him. Then... when going to the grocery store the other night he conned me into buying him a Monster's Inc night light. I can only guess which of those two movies he'll be voting for in the end.

He of course talks like crazy but now the fun begins with the "what are you doing guys?" and "cause why?" and all other fun questions. Although the other day he started reading me a book and making it up as he went....."Once upon a time, there was a sneaky little fella, and a great big applesauce..." I was cracking up quietly since I wanted him so badly to continue, but that's as far as he got.

He often needs two shirt choices and two shorts choices in the morning when he gets dressed. His favorite thing is to pick one and then tell me what it says, or what animal is on it, or even what friend of his at school has something like it...."Hunter has a shirt like this" or my favorite "Daddy would wear this shirt".

He is doing more and more things by himself these days like shutting the bathroom door and going potty by himself. If you even attempt to go in the bathroom he starts to shout at you and wave his hand like "get outta here!"

He has been in love with the beach and all the water toys this summer. He'll put on his life jacket and go on the paddle boards, in the paddle boat, or even in the small raft. I would say his favorite thing to do on the beach is stomp Grandpa's sandcastles!

Next is Miss Ava. She has been walking for a few weeks now and things have been much easier. Although she is still quite the cling-on. Now since she's walking, she has a lot less interest in food than before, but hands down still a better eater than Austin.

She is starting to really enjoy reading books before bed and can't get enough of those ones that have little flip pages within them. She also loves to play with her babies that are in her room and always makes whomever is putting her to bed, also pretend to drink the baby bottles.

Ava talks a ton! She repeats everything. I love this talking stage. There is a lot that she can repeat but then when she starts jibber jabbering she gives you this precious look as if everything she just said should make complete sense.

She has adorable blond curls in the back just like I did at her age only I was a brunette. I could put her in pigtails everyday.

She hasn't proven so far to be too much of a girlie girl because she loves to be a complete mess. She would be just happy to play in dirt, eat the dirt, put it in her hair, throw it around.....and then some!
So far this summer has proven to be worth the wait and although June flew by, there are still a few more months to cross off our bucket list and enjoy the weather.
