The back of it is about 10ft off the ground and the girls have camped out on the platform. We hope to build on a lot more in the months and years to come.

This summer we tried out getting a worlds and oceans of fun pass for the whole family this year.

We went out quite a few weeknights and found very short lines for the most part. We all had a blast.

We also spent a lot of time in our pool in the backyard.

It’s really nice to have the girls at the same school and just down the street and so far they really love their classes and teachers.

My favorite was going for an hour long run with her early one morning.

Last weekend we made it out to Big Lake with Stooks

Saturday we got there with just enough time to hop in the lake a bit before dark.
