We’ve been wanting to go to Music in the Park all summer, but I didn’t want to go when it was super hot because I didn’t think Emily would be very comfortable. We finally had a perfect weather day, which worked out well because it was the last concert of the summer! The girlies and I met up with my mom, Carla, and the kiddos for one last big play date of the summer.
I arrived a little bit before my mom and Carla. As I was setting up her spot, Lucy noticed a cute little “Frozen” themed camping chair in front of us and asked me where her chair like that was. She was so sweet about it, and bringing a chair for Lu had never even crossed my mind! What’s wrong with sitting on the picnic blanket?! Well, about five minutes later Aunt Carla rolls up and pulled an Oprah with her chairs. You get a chair! and YOU get a chair! EVERYONE GETS A CHAIR! Including Lucy! She brought this adorable little chair that used to be Sadie’s . . . and let Lucy keep it! Thanks for saving the day!
Lucy actually sat in the chair much longer/better than on the blanket. #lessonlearned
Sadie did such a great job feeding Emily!
Oma was on cloud nine to get a pic with all of her little loves. And Emily even cooperated!
At one point Carla told me to forget about everyone else and take a picture of us. And how great is her hair in the pic?!
This picture is hilarious. Oma and Sadie were really getting in to “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes,” the rest of the kiddos weren’t feeling it, and crazy Aunt Carla is doing her own thing in the back.
The Plymouth Fire Department always brings a truck and passes out fire hats. Lucy loves to get a hat, but refuses to go in the truck. Gordie and Andy enjoyed their tour.
It’s hard to hold that baby for extended periods of time!
Oma treated us to ice cream at Kilwin’s. Lucy pointed to the Fudge Brownie flavor and declared, “I want the brown one!” She gave me a bite, and it was delicious!
Doing a great job eating her treat. Notice how clean Minnie is.
Now look at poor Minnie!
It’s too bad the kiddos didn’t enjoy their ice cream! 😉
After the concert, we moved the party to our house for some jumping . . .
. . . and tomato picking!
Lu held up this green tomato and asked, “This tamo ready to be picked, momoo?” #no
If you come to our house, you must pick tomatoes!
Sadie did a great job! #nobodyputslucyinthecorner #exceptlucy
As always, all good things must come to an end. Everyone took off around 2:30 and left me with two crabby babies! Lucy was having a very hard time playing nicely with Emily, so I put her in a time out to calm down. When I went in to check on her, this is what I found. #cantcatchabreak
Lucy had so much fun with her cousins, and the weather was perfect! All the kiddos will be in school in less than two weeks. Dare I say I’m ready for fall? Only because it’s way more enjoyable to be outside in the cooler weather!
