A Friday Afternoon

The first weekend in June we had a nice little Friday afternoon at Riverpark. My mom was headed there to shop with a gift card she had gotten for Sur la Table and we decided to all come along(Me, Afton, and Maz.) I took the kids to the play area and then to get a caramel apple from Rocky mountain Chocolate Factory while my mom shopped. They loved it and the weather was perfect. Then we had dinner at Rubio's and stopped by Target to get a small swimming pool for the summer. It was a great relaxing Friday afternoon. It was a great start to the summer.

Loves holding hands with her mae-mae.

I'm sure people were thinking, "why is she taking a picture in Target?"

Miss Independent

She wants so badly to put shorts on by herself.

First swim of the year

The Christensens had a pool party/pool party on May 31st. It was our first swim of the summer. Afton loved, loved, loved it. Loved jumping in, kicking, splashing, being dunked. She's a little water baby. If we had better access to a swimming pool daily, I would start swim lessons with her again. But, we'll just have to wait a few weeks until we get to Puerto Rico and get into a place to live there. Then we'll start. Can't wait!

After the swim party on Memorial Day, we headed out shopping to try and find good deals on luggage. We mostly ended up getting dinner and walking around Riverpark. It was a relaxing and fun day.

Super cheesy

One black sharpie...

Just about destroyed our table. Luckily we googled directions on how to get an insane amount of sharpie off wood and it worked like a charm. Baking soda+ alcohol+ a tooth brush= sharpie gone. The skin however, took a couple baths and a couple days before it disappeared.

Good as new!
