Beach Week 2011

We just got home from a great week at the beach. Evy and Brandon had fun building sand castles, jumping in the waves and playing mini golf.

Feels Like Summer

Even though the calendar says it's still spring, Evelyn and Brandon have already enjoyed a few weeks of summer activities. Sunny and 94˚ during the beginning of June helps.

They've already been outside in their size-appropriate inflatable swimming pools.

Watering Can Shower

They've picked strawberries right from the farmer's fields.

And nothing says summer like the taste of corn on the cob.

When the season really changes next week they'll be ready to go. More pictures of summer practice are on Flickr.

Last Dance

Evelyn has attended her weekly dance class for the past nine months. During that time she has learned to pliƩ, shuffle ball change, and other stuff dance people do. Yesterday was the last class of the season - a chance for the dance finale and to get a trophy for her commitment.

Dance Trophy

Even though her teachers say she has very nice technique, Evy hasn't committed to dancing during the fall season yet. We'll keep you posted...

The Children's Museum

Brandon and Evelyn went to the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh yesterday and they had a blast!

Aboard the Neighborhood Trolley

Highlights of the trip include the Smart car, colorful projection dancing, various art projects and a bubble making seesaw. Both kids plan to go back very soon and neither would stop talking about how much fun they had.

You know you're having a good time when you need a wardrobe change in the middle of the visit (right after the waterplay area).

End of the Season

After her last soccer match, Evelyn and her teammates gathered for a ceremony to celebrate the season. They each received a medal for their participation.
By the Goal

Evy hasn't committed to playing during the fall season yet. We'll keep you posted...
