The Joys of Summer: Downtown Memphis

Today started with blueberry pancakes! Scott flipped them to be sure I didn't burn them:

Then there were some stickers:

And a little fort:

Then we headed dowtown. First up: the Peabody Ducks. It's been awhile since we have done this and I think it was Jillian's first time!

The Barbour family:

My little cutie-pie:

Went here for lunch:

Hooray for paper boats!

Some interesting sights:

And some funny instructions:

Next it was off to possibly the only activity one can do outdoors in Memphis in the hot summer: Mud Island River Park!

Jillian was steadier than I expected:

She and Ezra enjoyed splashing:

All the kids went under one of the bridges:

Including Jillian:

Out she comes:

Love this one:

Hanging near the fountain:

Snack break:

Me and the kids:

Back at home we enjoyed some homemade guacamole:

Later that evening, the kids watched Gnomeo and Juliet:

And after the kids went to bed I learned a new game (actually won the first hand!):
