2nd grade spotlight queen

Rylee gets to be the queen of her class for the day! This bag is filled with things all about Rylee. Inside it has a cheer leading trophy, a horse, pictures of her brother and sisters, a snorkel, a pair of ski goggles, and rice crispy treats to hand out to her classmates. Rylee also gets to eat lunch with her teacher and be the line leader. She's very excited!

First day of 2nd grade!

 Summer is over, and 2nd grade has officially begun! Rylee was so excited to see all her friends and meet her new teacher, Ms. Rasmussen! Nana is in town for the week and got to join us on her first day adventure! This year Park Lane has a new principal. She came up with a great idea to have all the students strut their stuff down the red carpet on their way inside the school.

Naartjie Kids

Rylee was chosen to be apart of a little modeling shoot for Naartjie Kids last month. The collection hit stores and ads this past week. We went to take a peek at her window display tonight. She was pretty excited! 

Langs Horse and Pony Farm

Our trip to Nana's wouldn't be complete without a trip to Langs. Rylee has outgrown her days of riding ponies and has stepped up to horses. Instead of our usual trail ride through the forest Rylee had a private lesson, trotting around the corral. She learned a bunch of new things and had a great time roaming the farm on her horse, Belle.

Clear Lake with Claire

We had a great trip to Washington to visit and play with family! One highlight was a trip to the lake to play on the beach with Claire. The lake then turned into Claire coming home with us to play... which then turned into having a sleepover! Such a fun day with these two cutie pies!

A day in Coeur d'Alene

We spent the day walking down Main Street, having lunch, visiting an awesome toy store, getting sweets at the local candy shop, and best of all... Playing at the lake! Quite a fun day... Making memories with the people we love!!

Silverwood Theme Park

Silverwood theme park is in Idaho, just North of Coeur d'Alene. We got to spend the day there today with Nana, Grandpa Lewis, Courtney, and Lauren. School starts next week so this is our last Summer trip before then. Silverwood is a cool little forest from the outside... then 1/2 amusement park rides and 1/2 water park rides once you get inside and explore. Such a fun day spent with family roaming around in the sunshine!

Lovin these summer nights!

We ordered takeout tonight and hung with the Fullmer fam. Their backyard pretty much rocks! After dinner Rylee pulled Josh and Ava around in the wagon and enjoyed the best sugar cookies on the planet! Sticky frosting lead to washing off with the hose... Which then lead to filling up the kiddie pool. The sun went down and the pool went away so the kids gladly moved on to the swing set! As Aunt Kiki was pushing Ava on the swing a grasshopper jumped up and hung out on her knee! As you can see this totally freaked Ava out BUT Rylee and Josh both thought it was the coolest ever! Aunt Sarah found a container so we caught him! I'm pretty sure the grasshopper loved the next activity, which was jumping on the trampoline, just as much as these crazy cutie pies did:)
