Rainy Day Fun

We have had tons of rain this summer so far.  It has been amazing for the flowers and plants we have in the garden--they are huge!  Not so great for our roof which was letting water drip into our bedroom this morning.  This did NOT start my day off well.  ERG.  Everyone pray that the cost to fix the roof isn't TOO expensive and that this house will SELL!!!!  We need to not have to deal with it anymore.  Anyway, I had to practically bribe Islwyn to get him out of the house for little bit while it was not raining this morning.  He could wear his rain boots and splash in every puddle, and he still wanted to just go home....  Anyway, we did get outside for about 15 minutes and walked about 1 block.  

Here are me and Amund, I guess we are posing for an ad for BabyBjorn.  I love the expression on Amund's face.

Islwyn splashing in the neighbors driveway.  They always have HUGE puddles.  We never have any in our driveway.

This weekend Phinneas and his mama came over for dinner since they were home alone for the weekend.  Islwyn and Phinneas sitting at the little table.  So cute.  Islwyn LOVES his corn on the cob.
In other news, we are frantically packing/cleaning the house for a move out date of July 13th.  In my ideal world the house would be sold before we move, but it is looking more and more likely that that won't be happening.  GRRR.  But we are all looking forward to spending some time with my parents over the rest of the summer and I know Jonathan is really excited about starting the seminary in September.  I will try and keep updating the blog...but may be absent for a couple of weeks during the move.

We went to vermont for a long weekend to see Nani and Grandad.  We had soooo much fun!  The farm we stay at it just beautiful and it is a little boy's heaven!  Here is Islwyn playing with the miniature donkeys.

Playing his flute for them.

By the fire pit.  Jonathan on the uke and islwyn on the flute.

With Boo.

Roasting marshmallows with Grandad and Papa.

Islwyn helped clean out the buckets.--He did this for HOURS.  Sprayed water in them, scrubbed a little bit, poured the water out...
Jonathan and I went for a ride around the property on the Gator.

In the rain.
He found a stick that he was riding around like it was a horse.
Handsome Amund.
Playing with Mama in the hammock.

Napping with Nani.
Islwyn got to play in this GIANT sandbox--it is a sandbox for the horses.
The boys.

Amund with his grandparents in Bristol.  We went to a fun festival there on Saturday.
Islwyn watched two bands play for about 1 1/2 hours.  He was transfixed.

Climbing a tree with Dada.

Islwyn found this toad!
And he was SUPER into the bird room!
Jonathan and I got a night alone at a B and B!!! THe boys stayed with the grandparents.

Sailing...well, almost!

We helped some friend get their sailboat into the water yesterday.  Jonathan had LOTS of fun doing it.  The mamas and babies came too, but mostly just played on the beach.
Off they go to moor the boat.

Into the water!
The boys playing.  I think Islwyn is trying to figure out a way to get to play with the bucket and shovel at the same time...
Phinneas' Grandma came to visit.  She took charge of little babykins Amund.  Thanks!!!
Islwyn playing in the water while waiting for Phinneas to get there.  He asked me like 5 times, "Where'sPhinneas?"
We can't wait to do some sailing!  It just makes me even more sad to be leaving Maine when we have such fun days with friends...
