More Rock On

Oliver continued to rock on today at his camp and we made it even better in the afternoon by reporting at the library.  Claire, Shane, and Grammie came along too!  

She reported on a chapter from Oliver's Squanto book.
She is such a literate girl!

This little guy is so much fun!

She got to pick out a book, she wanted this
one.  Oliver and Mommy talked her out of it.
(We want her to learn to be humble and kind.)

There is Oliver's sneaker!  That isn't our Claire next
to him.  Hers will be put up later!

We made a craft.  Mommy just noticed 
Shane butt got in the picture!

Cousins checking out the new circulation machines.

We went to the coffee shop real quick after.
Mommy watching Oliver share his Yellowstone knives
with Doug.  She didn't come out real fast.  He was helping
her teach Oliver some safety techniques and gave him some
ideas for a stronger sheath.  

Oliver is a good listener.
(Just not always with Mommy.)  

We had a great day and Oliver did well at night when Mommy had to meet with a group for a project.   Oliver is off at camp on Wednesday.  Mommy will see him on Friday for a nice together weekend!  She misses him and hopes that he learns a lot and has fun at his camp.

Rock On

Oliver and his step cousin, Julian attended the NAT Rock On camp today in Balboa Park.  Oliver got to spend some time with his Grandma on the way there and back.  He loves going to the NAT, this is his 3rd summer camp there!  

He met Mommy at the San Elijo Mira Costa campus.

Cute camp shirt this year!  

He checked out the library, he wanted to go past this,
sorry honey....only librarians can go back there!

He met one of the faculty librarians.  She had a lot
of stones on...

Oliver thought it was turquoise but we compared and 
it wasn't close.  Myla's are called malachite.  They
were in her earrings, ring, bracelet, and necklace.
She is a wonderfully eclectic dresser and an amazing
librarian.  Mommy is learning SO MUCH!  (Sometimes
her brain doesn't have a lot of room for other things.)

We also went to sign up for the summer reading program!
Dove Library opened just in time.

New return system.

We get a peak at how the system works now!

Pretty amazing.  Also, very expensive.

Here we come summer reading!

He reported, sipped lemonade, and got all his swag.
He will be working on multiplication and division
this summer too.

Free book!

Mommy is feeling a bit guilty but there is no way she 
can fit in the weekly pick ups and visit to the library
with Team Cousin.  She will pick up with our ritual
next year.

Oliver's choice!

We are aiming for this before we leave for
Indiana on the 13th!  Can we do it!?

We did get Shane his swag and reporting chart.
His is a sweet baby map that he completes at home.

Our day rocked!

Birthday Celebrations

We celebrated a lot of birthdays today!   Rachel, Uncle Matthew, Aunt Ali, and Oliver.  Plus father's day.  We got a special jumpy house with a slide that was VERY popular!

First though, Oliver went to the Y early
and worked out for a little bit with Mommy.
He is getting good at the elliptical!

Let's Celebrate:

Missing her first teeth!

This baby!!

Silly girls!

Brunch Fuel:

Back to Celebrating:

It slowly started coming off.

(Mommy likes to jump and slide.)

The cool kids.

Birthday Twins.  Mommy loves this picture.

Sweet, sweet, sweetness!

It finally all came off!

Totally worth the money!  

Oliver and Mommy stayed until it was picked up.
(We like to have fun.)

Happy Summer Birthdays!!!
