I went on my first boys-only fishing trip with Dad and Grandpa! We had to leave really early, but I was so excited that I woke up at 5:00 a.m., before Dad’s alarm had a chance to ring.
Then, Dad decided to remove the front of my crib so I could sleep in a big-boy-bed for the first time ever. I was so thrilled to experience freedom and independence. In fact, I decided to practice my newfound freedom by escaping from my bed in the middle of the night…
…and sneaking right into my parents’ bed. It was perfect; I felt so independent as I snuggled myself safely between mom and dad!!
Finally, I went to my first big-screen movie (Cars 3) at the Sparta Cinema 6 Movie Theatre! It was the 3-D version so I was provided a super cool pair of sunglasses (that I grew tired of wearing about 30 minutes into the movie). Luckily, there was no getting tired of the popcorn, root beer, Skittles and Reese’s pieces! And just to treasure the experience even more, mom and dad bought me a couple Cars 3 characters to play with (and sleep with and never part with) at home.
While June is still happening, we decided to hit up another Dairy Breakfast! This one took place last weekend in Trempealeau County and featured a live band, batter-fried cheese curds, and a tractor display! I think I might be a little sad once July comes around… and a little chunkier! (Unapologetically chunkier.)
… Dairy Month! And Dairy Month means Dairy Breakfasts on the local farms!!
I really just came for the balloon.
Getting my first tattoo!
Holy cheese curd!!
Eyeing up the Culver’s ice cream
I’m not ready to leave yet.
Afterward, we stopped in Viroqua to check out the local shops and then visited Connie (who just retired from UWL).
Shopping for a new bike helmet
Strawberries from Connie’s garden
If summerofthevacation means a belly full of cheese curds and pancakes, a new bike helmet, sunny days, and several fresh-garden-picked strawberries, then we should probably consider canceling the rest of the year because it doesn’t get better than this!
I did it! I graduated from the 2/3 year-old room at the Campus Child Center! Do you know what that means (besides that I’m probably brilliant)? It’s officially “SUMMEROFTHEVACATION!”
This year, I have no diapers to hold me back, so I’m about to show summer who’s boss! But, I will miss seeing all my campus buddies on the regular. Luckily, I made lots of memories before the school year was all said and done:
Outdoor picnic lunch with the parents!
Last day of the 2016-17 school year!
At the busy intersection
I LOVE a good hot dog!
Field trip to Rudy’s!
My Campus Climate buddies came over for a retreat!
Last day of IOPA for the year
I had so much fun at the “Dragon Show!” (Drag show)
