Here are a few things we did with playgroup friends during July...
Oh, the children's museum. We love it. Perfect summer activity and so, so much to do for the kids. We used to spend the majority of our time in the grocery store area. And still that is what the girls like to do most.
But, now with all these boys...they have a different idea of what is fun. Much more looking at the caged or relics of animals, playing legos, cars and lots of dinosaurs.
How many kids can we fit in a dinosaur footprint!?
And the Dino Dig is always a huge hit.
Grapevine Mills Mall
We love a good trip to the mall. We pretty much just ride the carousels little and small, eat whatever we want for dinner and do a little shopping.
I have to confess, this particular outing ended in one of the biggest tantrums I have ever seen from Kinley. We had to carry her kicking and screaming out of the mall because we said no when she asked for a particular new princess dress from the Disney store.
We are so mean, I know.
Needless to say, her next playgroup outing was cancelled for her and she was not allowed to attend.
It's not always fun and games at these outings.
We can take our own photo booth pics when we dont want to pay $5, right?!
A couple weeks later, we went to the zoo to visit the brand new baby elephant! I have to say, the weather for July has been incredible this year! The random rainy days has kept it not too hot and we have taken advantage by being outside!
How cute is this little baby elephant!? We got to vote on her name and Belle won! (short for Bluebelle...which we love bc that is our fish's name)
But, on the day of Kinley voted for Rose and AG voted for Belle.
This was not really a playgroup outing but it will be soon! It was maybe my favorite of all these places. It is brand new this summer and so fun! A big play area for the kids and a lazy river and a big pool and lots of big slides for older kids too. Plus, for residents it is super cheap! We can all go for just $6.
This day, we only got to swim about 45 min before a massive thunderstorm hit but it was still so much fun!

And, I don't know how or why Ty was posing like this...but I am a little obsessed with these pictures.
