One last hurrah!

We had one last Family Fun Friday at Frontier City before our big boy heads off to Kindergarten tomorrow.  We had a really good time, and the temperatures were pretty mild!

We've been kind of taking it easy this week, enjoying our last few lazy summer vacation days.  Stephen and Erik enjoyed playing in his tent, pretending to camp.  After this photo was taken, the tent was attacked by a ferocious dragon, only to be fought off by the brave Sir Stephen and his trusty Bitey.  It was hysterical!
Tomorrow morning, I'll drop Stephen off at his new classroom for all-day kindergarten.  I think we're ready, and more importantly, HE is ready.  Stephen was so excited at his Meet the Teacher night tonight that he practically dragged Erik to his classroom.  Unfortunately, Stephen went to his OLD classroom, but luckily, his new one is next door.

We went up to Michigan to cool off for a week.  We had a lovely visit with Grandpa Rick and Kim, and got to see Aunt Erin, Uncle Adam, and cousins Zachary and Caleb too!  Stephen got to enjoy his favorite activities - swimming and a boat ride!  On our way up there, we spent a day in St. Louis with some family friends, and spent a few hours at the Magic House childrens' museum.  So, here are some photos from our super fun trip!  (P.S.  Yes, Erik and I DID try some tubing at the lake - it was FUN!)
