Camille got to ride once. . . had to save those tokens for big sister. . . second child probs. . .
This face pretty much sums up her joy. . .
That same day, after naps, we took one last trip to the neighborhood pool. This wasn't on our list, but the pics are too cute not to share. The shallow side is only 8 inches deep. Perfect for Clara to walk around and splash. It took her about 30 minutes to really get comfortable walking on her own, but once she warmed up she was good to go.
Camille post swim. . . We don't call this girl drama mama for nothing. She is happy and smiling 95% of the time. But that other 5%? Yep. . . pretty much comes out of nowhere. Her face below proves my point, does it not? :)
Going. . .
Gone. . . I guess she doesn't like the backwards egg shirt?
Next up. . . trip for frozen yogurt. We went a little early and let Clara walk around the Sugar Land Town Center. There is plenty of space for her to explore and walk around without us having to hold her back for any reason.
Loves finding her shadow. . . cutest thing ever.
Clara gearing up for her fro-yo. . .
She loved looking at all the colors. . .
Camille enjoyed a bite or two as evidenced by the blue sprinkle leftover under her nose. . .
We headed downtown one Friday to enjoy lunch with daddy/Brandon at work. Clara was in awe of all the people, sights, and sounds. My sister in law, Tiffany, also works downtown so we called her to come down to say hi.
Clara playing at daddy's desk. . .
Brandon's coworker, Ms. Rhonda, loving on the girls. We saw lots of other employees but didn't snap any photos.
We were invited to the Splash Pad one hot morning and were thrilled to accept the invite! A little swing action prior to splashing on the pad. Camille and Zane were sharing a swing. SO cute these two. I can't even.
Zane, Camille, and Jake. . . cuties!
Clara and her friend, Audrey. . . Audrey's pose cracks me up . . .
Ok so I put finger-painting on the list. I was trying to branch out and think of a sensory activity that would push Clara a little bit and help stretch her comfort zone. Well stretch her comfort zone it did. Translation = major meltdown. I could not even bring myself to document. So we settled for some soap based finger paint in the bath and called it a day. Mommy did all the painting this time. You can pin this if you want.
Again, this girl loves her shadow. . .
Clara's favorite non animal portion of the zoo is a little play area that has a piano. The pic below looks as if Clara and her lil friend Aedan are holding hands. Let me clear the air and say Clara was indeed slapping his hand away because she wanted the piano all to herself. Sorry Aedan!!
Wendi and Camille. . . love this pic! Camille was so sweaty but thankfully nowhere near as sunburned as this picture makes her look. . .
The Houston zoo also has a little splash pad. I brought a swim diaper and t-shirt for Clara to play in and she was loving it!
Camille and Austin playing in the shade. . .
Sweet friends. . .
Can you guess which one of these three was not a fan of the pic???
Group shot. . . We missed you, Jenna!!
Overall it was a great summer! Excited for the fall season which we hope will bring a tad bit cooler weather & lots of exciting new memories!
