Summer Updates x2

My Summer Lovers!!
Last week Robert called me with the exciting news that a co-worker of his game him some free tickets to a Brewers game that night.  I told the kids we were going to a big game and for the rest of the day all I heard was how excited they were to go the "Big Game."  They didn't really know what they were going to but they were excited.  We had a great time.  The weather was perfect and the kids had so much fun.  We only stayed until the 7th inning stretch since it was such a late game but we had such a fun time.  Baily's favorite part was the racing sausages and her delicious ball park hot dog!  What more could you ask for than a free night of family fun?!
One of the things we have loved most about moving to the city is there's so much to do!  We have loved discovering the parks, library and pools.  We were excited to have our friends come join us to go to David Schultz Aquatic Center for a day last week.  It was an awesome water park (only $8 for both Baily and I) perfect for kids that are my kid's ages.  They had a blast!  We enjoyed a yummy picnic in between play time (thanks Rachel!) and it was just a fabulous Summer day.  We will definitely be getting a swimming pass next Summer for all the pools and water parks around here:)
One of the favorite parks we've found is Greenfield Park which is right down the road from us.  It's huge!  It's gorgeous- like a little wonderland forest in the middle of the city.  The kid's love the playground and I love the scenery with the lakes and woods.  Both times we've gone we've seen deer.  I can't wait until I'm in the position to be able to bike, walk and run the trails there!
Every year Pell Lake (where we used to live) has a day called Kid's Day Out put on by the Police there.  It is awesome!  They have free games and rides, free food and they put together a child identification kit for you in case you ever lose a child.  Then they have this huge raffle at the end with TONS of prizes.  Last year was our first year and the kids had a blast so I made sure we went this year and we weren't disappointed.  It's so awesome that they do all this for FREE!  I really do miss living in that great area... it's one of a kind:)  Anyway, we had fun and it was a bonus that we got to spend the day with my Dad and Eyan and the kids got to see Amber and Brandy.  It was a great day!
