Forgot to post this cute picture of M and B sleeping at Mantua. Not only are they in the same position, but this is MY favorite position to sleep in as well.
Wednesday McKenna had a park date with some school friends. Afterwards we took Camille with us to get smoothies from Keva Juice for lunch. Later we had Camille and the Lewises over to run through the sprinklers.
Thursday Dan got up early and washed our windows! What a guy! We also had a lovely swim day at the Winegar pool. We had the missionaries over for dinner that evening and I gave Dan a haircut.
Friday I did some running and weeding in the morning. After lunch we went to two "end of the school year" parties! One at the Roth's and one at Grandma's house.
Silly cousins being silly!
Saturday morning I went running with Sarah Jane and Dan mowed the lawn. We quickly got cleaned up for the baptisms of McKenna's primary class friends, Bekkah and Renton, Following this we came home and packed a lunch and headed to the ZOO! We won tickets from a drawing at our dentist office. We ate lunch as soon as we got there; Ben made that face out of veggie straws and vanilla wafers, We also saw the three baby lion cubs and they were nursing! So cute, I almost cried. ;) We were super glad our prize tickets included a train ride, even though it was a long wait.
It was pretty hot. but we got some cute poses by the otter statue. I love that Ben gives us REAL smiles now instead of the goofy faces. And McKenna looks like she's 12!
We got slurpees on the way home then picked up groceries. We stopped by home and then headed to my Aunt Joan's for a potluck extended Thompson family get-together. What a whirlwind day!!
Sunday, Ben had taken the instruction book from one of McKenna's girl Lego vet sets, and he found all of the same pieces and made his own x-ray machine. They are identical-ish! Such a smart Lego loving boy.
After church we visited the Alexander's and met their new baby boy William! After dinner Anna fell asleep and we decided not to wake her up and we played games outside in the back. Unfortunately, Anna did wake up and was up from 10:30pm-12:30am. Arg!
Monday McKenna started Summer piano lessons with her new teacher Sis. Novak. McKenna also had a Summer fun party with her friend Marli from school. McKenna and Ben started swim lessons also! That evening we headed up to Boondocks in Kaysville to celebrate Dan's mom's BD for family night! We had pizza, cake, played mini golf, and lots of arcade games!
Tuesday I took the van to the Toyota dealership because both my headlights were out. We thought it was a fuse issue but turns out both had burned out at the same time. Once fixed, we ran an errand to buy a birthday present for Ben's friend. At both the dealership and the store, Anna threw some pretty epic tantrums with LOTS of screaming, all because I said no to something. I got lots of nice looks and comments from well-meaning strangers. My favorite was from a grandma who patted me on the shoulder and said, "She'll be a mom too someday." That evening Ben went to Henry Alexander's BD party and we had the YM (teachers) over for some outdoor gaming.
Anna enjoyed her Tiki Punch and almost made me forget what a stinker she had been. ;)
