summer break

Just a little dixon family update. It finally feels like summer break! The boys and I have actually had to LOOK for things to do, rather than feeling like we always have a million things we have to do. Of course, there are some challenges to that. For instance, right now it is 12:24. We have already been to the park, watched enough television, colored, had lunch, and had naps. I find myself wondering what we will do for the next 5 hours, as idleness is not healthy for my Micah or my sanity:). All you creative moms out there can send me your summertime suggestions. We've been swimming and playing outside, but the days are getting hot for a pregnant mommy. All that said, we are happy for the break in busyness as we gear up for soccer and school starting back in just about a month. Maybe we'll go to the library today :). Here some pictures of a few of the things we've done to entertain ourselves.

The most monumental event is that Noah finally learned to ride his bike without training wheels. He just decided to do it one day and basically taught himself. He is very proud and rides all over the neighborhood like a pro already.

Noah has been begging to make slime for quite a while, so we finally made some the other night. As usual, Duane took it a little too far for a good laugh :) And as usual, Noah was happy to play along.

Last night we made chocolate covered bananas. Micah was delighted. Fruit had never tasted so good! (Duane on the other hand had a problem with the conflicting textures).

Hope you are all enjoying your summer as much as we are!

Way to go Noah! He is getting so big. We all enjoyed watching him swim around the pool like a little fish.

Man, you make such cute boys, I can't imagine what a beauty Baby Girl is going to be!

Duane, you are a weirdo with freakish taste buds (totally said in love:)).
