Thea started the weekend with a new hairdo!
We passed some time at the train set in Barnes ‘n Noble.
Some friends invited us to a Community Day event in Steelton, and the kids patiently waited in line for the bounce house.
They ate Rita’s Italian ice and showed me their pink tongues.
They explored a firetruck, did a ring toss, and ate some lollipops.
Then, we stopped by River Rescue, where Jason was installing a security system. The kids admired his handiwork (one was more impressed than the other).
They climbed around on the boats.
The next day, Jason and Thea did the Tour de Belt, the annual 22-mile bike ride fundraiser for the Capital Area Greenbelt Association! The ride began and ended on the local community college campus, where they cycled past some construction in front of the Cooper Student Center.
Finn showed off his new sunglasses!
And happily danced in the sunshine.
Nonna volunteered at the Tour de Belt and brought a balloon to Finn. The Turkey Hill mascot tried her best to tie it on his wrist.
A little later, Finn and I were waiting as Jason and Thea crested the giant hill at Reservoir Park.
“I made it the whole way up without stopping to walk!”
At the rest stop, Thea greeted her brother with sisterly indignation.
But she gave him a bite of her Payday bar, as she buckled in for the final leg of the bike ride… Forty-five minutes later, Finn and I were caught up on a nearby playground when Jason and Thea crossed the finish line, back at HACC.
Later, Jason got called for a scuba diving rescue, so Finn, Thea and I spent some time at the pool.
She didn’t seem to mind the cold water.
Pool days don’t seem complete without ice cream.
He shared a few bites.
And, later, he gave me this look of indignation when I told him it would be bedtime soon.
I couldn’t blame him for not wanting the weekend to end.
