Dinkey Days

In July, a much anticipated trip finally arrived. 
The Weiler family has been waiting for Dinkey to happen for I think 4 years now.  It got cancelled due to a shortage of people wanting to attend.
We got dirty... my kid ran independently.
We slept in bunk beds and no matter how hard I tried to organize everything, it got messy!!
We sat around gabbing with family and friends.
We had horseshoe, ping pong and frisbee golf tournaments.
We roasted marshmallows and tried a new treat... roasted Starbursts. mmm!
We ate popsicles, even if they had dropped in the dirt.
Lake Day was exciting.  I think 5 pontoon boats were rented.  We road wave runners, went tubing and even caught a lizard.
Of course everyone caught TOO many rays at the lake.

The traditional obstacle course was set up.  Maycee was only up to running through the boxes at the end.
But mostly it was just plain ol' simple fun outside.
(Even if my kid was sick the whole week... we all had a BLAST!!)

May Days

 May started off with the first swim of the year... brrr!!!
 We baked some brownies... She is becoming quite the little baker.
 She did all kinds of crafts with grandma... the Cricut being her favorite.

We went to Richard Boone's 8th Grade Graduation form St. Anthony's

And we went to the Fabulous Monteray Bay Beach.

MAY was filled with all kinds of fun!!!

Memorial Day in Monterey

Brittany Youngclaus had this FANTASTIC idea to head to the beach for Memorial Day.  We were so in, and so were Brittany's parents.  The car ride consisted of books and playing, with the occasional scream, but it went well. 

  And soon we were there.  Maycee, of course, could not even wait one second to play in the sand.  She insisted on wearing her swimsuit even though it was chilly enough to wear sweaters. If it wasn't for my BFF Brittany, I wouldn't have been where I have been.  She is my adventurer.  I love her to pieces.
Playing in the sand lasted for about... 30 min. HA It was cold.  But Mayc had a blast.

She soon started tunring purple and I needed to put some clothes on her.... Just in time to play in the sand a bit more.

 We then headed to the peer.  The kids guided us into the candy store, of course, and then we headed to lunch for some good fish and chips.
  We were told about this AWESOME park, Dennis the Menace Park, and knew we had to go there.  Maycee was in heaven.  At first I could keep track of her but after a bit, she was a runnin' everywhere. 
  The big train was cool, but super nerve wracking for me.  She was on top of it and it just freaked me out.

We headed back to the car and decided to feed the ducks.  They were eating right out of Derricks hand. 
 Soon it was time to head back home.  The car ride home was full of singing Primary songs and playing Who Wants to Be a Millionaire on Britt's phone.  Maycee fell asleep and soon we were home.
What an enjoyable day!
