Starting summer

It's only June 10th but we've been super busy all month. Charlie and Lily have been hitting all the local playgrounds and playing outside in their pool and water table. They've been on Sunday evening picnics with Joe (peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the lake followed by a trip for ice cream) and are finishing up their spring semester of music. They've also discovered the ice cream truck, or the "music truck" as they call it.

They've also become birthday obsessed. This year is the first one where they really understand what a birthday is and they are SO excited for theirs. Charlie started off the month crying because he wanted to go to his birthday party and didn't understand why we couldn't. Plus, there are a million birthdays of friends and family in June, so they were getting confused over the fact that there were parties and cake for people other than them. To try to help make things clear, we made this birthday countdown calendar together. Every morning we cross off another day and get closer to their birthday. They really like it!

It wouldn't be summer without corn on the cob! I bought our first ears last weekend and took Charlie and Lily outside to husk it.
I'm not sure what happened here, but apparently it was Lily's fault.

Husking the corn was fun, but Charlie wasn't so sure about actually eating it.
Lily, on the other hand, was a fan. She was still eating her corn along with the chocolate chip cookie we gave her for dessert.

Just like last year, Charlie and Lily love the water. We pulled out their pool and water table and they've been having the best time with them.

It's important to wear sunscreen -good thing the application process is so funny.
You also need shades in the summer. Charlie and Lily love to go incognito.
