Another one of our summer activities was the splash pad here in town. Evan hasn't been a fan of sprinklers but it's summer...it's hot, and we don't want him to be afraid. So...we headed there after our bike ride the other night. He was a little timid at first but he did great with them and by the end wasn't afraid of the little fountains at all. :) The big ones...well, let's just say he wasn't a fan.
Pointing to the big fountains....so Mike decided to take him over to see if he'd play in them...
Nope! Not so much :)
Definitely was happy with the little ones
Enjoying the summer and can't believe that it is already July 4th weekend coming up!

just wanted to share a few funny videos of Evan lately. This age is hilarious! He also thinks his name is "You". For instance, if we are praying at night, he says, momma, dada, baby, you, and jack. :) I guess it doesn't help when we give him choices, we used to say "Do you want oranges or grapes?" "Do you want to play with your cars or your trucks." or "Do you want to read this book or that one?" It's pretty cute when he says it...but we've definitely started saying "Does Evan" now...Need to make sure he knows his name! ha! Enjoy the videos...he is always making us laugh. :)

We decided to make our summer "to do" or bucket list. It's not anything extravagant...just some ideas and activities that Mike and I want to do with Evan and Alex. We want to be intentional about our first summer as a family of four and are going to try and complete all of the activities together.
First on the list was a bike ride...While Mike and Evan went around the park, Alex and I got our exercise in by walking. :) Can't wait until Alex is old enough and they can both fit in the trailer.

Our last day :(
Had a lazy morning....my mom and I decided to walk down to where they tape The Today Show. We walked in and just hung out and watched the different people for about 15 minutes. It was almost 9 am and one of the workers said, Matt, Anne, and Al would be out shortly. So we stayed to at least get a glimpse of them.
Definitely a cool experience!
After that, we headed back to the hotel, packed up and just relaxed before heading to the airport.
Bye NYC! Till next time :)
There was an airplane traffic jam...
I'm just glad that this was NOT an accident and was not at our airport. And I was definitely glad to get home to see this little guy and my big guy! :) I missed them...

Day 3...Sunday morning was gorgeous. We headed to Central Park and had a great time seeing all of the different people relaxing in the grass, drinking coffee that morning. Lots of people were reading, sunbathing, and just sitting in the grass watching others walk by. It was definitely very peaceful. Once we got into the park where you couldn't see any buildings (or hardly any buildings) or hear any of the car horns, it was so quiet and felt like you were in the countryside. Definitely a great place to be!
Love that there is a carnival/fair inside the park too!
Took in an afternoon softball game...
Walked down "the mall"
Watched this man scare this little boy when he put money in his bag...not on purpose, but definitely made the kid jump!
Do you see Times Square in the below picture??? It's almost right in the middle of the picture...
See how little it looks?!
But when you are down there, it looks huge!
With Matthew and Uncle Mark :)
