Vacation Bible School

Our church held Vacation Bible School the last week of June. We meet in an elementary school on Sundays so we had to meet at a park to hold it. Since we would have childcare available for volunteers, I was not able to teach this year. Instead I had the under three's at my house! We had fun! Jenna wasn't here all five days as she went to another churches VBS with a friend that had a class for two year olds. She had a  blast and learned the B-I-B-L-E Song!
Jenna and Levi (or Eeguy, as Jenna calls him) sharing a pb&j.

On Wednesday, it was just Jackson and me, so we went to the park. He loved the swings!
What a cute boy!

Eagle Flight Days

The last weekend of June, our little town has a "festival" called Eagle Flight Days.  We did not go last year because Jenna was still taking two naps a day and I didn't want to mess with that. We learned this year that it is in fact a pretty BIG deal! There is live music, a parade, rides, food vendors and all kinds of booths and activities for young and old. Jenna and I met up with friends their on Friday night for The Baby Contest (not kidding). She saw some kids riding in a train. Had no idea there were ride or that I would need cash. I had no money and all Jenna could talk about was the train. I promised her we would come back the next day and she could ride the train, but I may have to break into her piggie bank to pay for it!
Watching the parade with her friend Bella.

Decorating a visor with Mommy at the Kids Tent.

Riding in the train! She was so proud to help Mommy count her quarters to give to the "conductor."
Went on a Big Girl ride with Ms. Shelley and Bella. This kid is fearless! I don't think that I rode one of these things until I was at least 5 or 6.
Going fishing at the Library Booth. She "caught" a bouncy ball with streamers. I think she was disappointed that she didn't catch and actual fish though.

Jenna Invites Herself to go Swimming!

One of our neighbors in the cul de sac has a little girl who is four. We have only met them briefly, so to say they are merely acquaintances is an understatement. Anyhoo, one day after church, Jenna saw that they were outside playing in a blow-up pool with a slide. So, she took it upon herself to make them her friends! She ran downstairs and out the front door all the way to their house! She's friendly like that! Needless to say, she charmed them with her personality and they invited her to come play. She played to her little hearts content!
