Our favorite former neighbors came to visit, and they did some painting.
Bethany attempted to line them up according to height.
She led them in a game of Simon Says: “Make a sound like a monkey.” Two out of three got the hang of it.
There was some tickle-fighting.
On a rainy afternoon, we broke open the “Fun with Flight” Kiwi Crate and built a rocket launcher.
Jason assisted Finn in signing a birthday card for Nana.
We built some kites, using the “Fun with Flight” Kiwi Crate materials.
We broke out the water guns. I thought they would chase each other around the yard, but they mostly just watered the plants.
Thea kept her belly cool.
We visited Nana on her birthday weekend.
Finn got some new specs from Auntie Lala.
They wondered how many Robinsons could fit on Nana’s new recliner.
On the Fourth of July, Thea expertly led us in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the Grand Old Flag.
The kids and I ate our Dunkin Donuts breakfast picnic style, in the park next door.
We pumped the swimming pool…
and Thea’s swim Barbie did lots of high dives from the deck rails.
Jason came across the mask and snorkel sets we used on a cruise in 2010, and he adjusted them for Finn and Thea to wear.
On Saturday mornings, when Jason’s running group trains on City Island, Thea has begun tagging along for the first half mile or so.
And then the kids run their own races.
