The weather the past few weekends has more than made up for the terrible weather we had in June and the first part of July. Although, I will admit, I LOVE hot weather and am kind of sad we only had a couple 90 degree days here so far. With that being said, we took full advantage of the sunshine and warm weather to spend as much time as possible outside as we could this past weekend.
On Friday evening, we enjoyed a night with our friends. We went over to Jay & Sara's house (the couple whose wedding Todd & I met at) and while Todd & Jay hung out at the house with the kids, Sara & I walked down to House Wine in downtown Worthington for a nice, relaxing girls' night. It was much needed and a win-win since Todd was still able to hang out with his friend and I was able to hang out with my friend.
On Saturday morning, Lucy & I met my parents at Adventure Park in Powell for KidsFest. Todd has been wanting to work on some things around the house (like the basement) so I took Lucy out so he could get stuff done. It was surprisingly a lot more fun than I anticipated. There was a balloon lady there so Lucy picked out a monkey in a tree balloon (which she carried around the rest of the day), games to play, inflatables, touch-a-truck, and a playground to play on. Needless to say, Lucy had a fun morning!

She was so excited about this thing!

There was a bounce house there as well as this huge slide so I went down the slide with her

Climbing up the stairs to the top
It was a lot steeper and faster than I thought it would be
We made it to the bottom!
Checking to see what Lucy thought of it

One of her absolute favorite things: going down the slide...or as she calls it, the weeeee (because that's what she says as she goes down)
And she's pointing to another one of her favorite things, the train going by
Big sign over the street pointing to Bun's Restaurant
Half of the patio is covered (where the bar is) and the other half isn't covered
Todd coloring with Lucy (my little lefty!) before we left to go to the pool
She always wants to start in the baby pool and then we make our way over to the big pool

Rest period = lunch time
Todd building walls while we were at the pool
Todd ended up working for a good 5 or 6 hours that afternoon and got quite a bit of work done. Next week, he's renting a truck from work and will be getting supplies to finish up our laundry room makeover. We also have a trip to Pittsburgh planned for Saturday so we can visit Aunt Nancy, who we haven't seen since Lucy was 2 weeks old, and will be visiting the Pittsburgh zoo.
