I love summer!
Today was supposed to be a simple day of riding bikes and going to the park (for me and R) and painting the bathroom (for A). But over our pancakes, sausages, and strawberries this morning, A suggested we drive out to Kimball Farm for mini golf, bumper boats, and ice cream instead. Sold!
We called up some friends to join us and off we went. It was a beautiful day that varied between hot and sultry and cool and rainy. But the rain showers came and went so quickly that it was perfect for cooling us off for the next activity.
Mini golf is still a little bit too long and difficult for R. With six people in our group, it was hard to wait for his turn and the course wasn't really geared toward kids. But he LOVED the bumper boats (so did I!). I think next year he and his little friend Z may be big enough to drive their own boat together. That'll be loads of fun. :-)
So it was a great summer day - full of fun and greasy food and enormous, heaping piles of delicious ice cream.
