The summer has just begun!

Being a stay at home mom with our home preschool over we have had a little extra free time. So we've tried to be better about fixing Chey's long repunzel hair. Cheyenne decided that she loves to have her hair curled. I feel bad using curling irons/ straighteners on it every day. For a no heat method we bought foam curlers for her to wear to bed. 
She thought it was so fun! And it made her hair very curly!
And with the weather warming up we've been able to get out of the house. We made it to the Ren. Fair to watch Callie's horse vaulting team perform again this year. It is always amazing This year Calle was on the top of a trio! Before the show started this girl walked by with a boa of some sort and all the kids thought it was pretty cool. 
Even Cheyenne which totally surprised me! Tay Tay was totally in love. I think that she would have taken it home with her is she could have. 
After the performance the team offered "BIG pony rides."   Cheyenne LOVED this just as much as last year. She was willing to get off to let someone else have a turn, but wasn't very thrilled to find out she wouldn't get a 2nd turn. 
Trevin decided to try it this year, but was content to just ride and not try any tricks. They did get him to pull a superman arm pose at the end.  
At the end of the day the kids love to color. They are getting so good at staying in the lines. They like to work on these really big coloring pages together. 
I took them through an automatic car wash for the first time. Which they thought was awesome!
Our Favorite thing to do right now is BOWLING! The  "kids bowl free" program started and so far we've gone 4 times. Trevin bowled 5 strikes and a few spares so far and Chey has gotten 1 strike and many spares! She really knows how to aim the ramp to get the left over pins. 
We even bought shoes this year to save money (no renting at $3.25 per pair each time). Plus the kids think it's pretty coo that they have their own shoes. 
We grew Trevin's hair out for his annual mow hawk. We Raced for the cure on Saturday. (I guess I forgot to take pics.) 
This week started out stormy so to burn some energy we headed to Kangaroo zoo with cousins! It has a dozen or so Blow up bounce houses, slides, obstical coarses, etc.  The huge slide was the favorite. 
The kids played for 4 hours!!! It was so great. Here they are just before leaving I thought they were gunna fall asleep on the spot.
