Yesterday we went on an adventure to SoNo with Melissa, Lily and Miles. In our local mall we were approached by a talent company that will remain un-named. So like two suckers we bit and made an appointment for the kids and headed to SoNo.
When we arrived they had no record of our appointment (Red Flag #1), but the receptionist did kindly offer to make us an appointment *grin* When we were filling out our paper work a women came up to us and told us her opinion of "talent agency". She was there to try and get her $1500 back and she told us her story and how the Better Business Buerau has pages of complaint and two open cases agains the company. (Red Flag #2). This is when we looked at each other and took our paper work and walked out. Oh well, the husbands were right it was a scam, but it was also an adventure.
Well we weren't going to let this ruin our day, we were afterall down by the water, so what were we going to do with the rest of our day. I snapped some cute pictures of the kids at the Sheffield Island Lighthouse dock.
I swear the boys don't spend all their time in a stroller, it is just hard when you are on the go, it's hot and they aren't walking yet.
The lighting was great for these two pictures that I got of Lily, I didn't even have to do anything to retouch them *grin*
Then, we headed to the Norwalk Beach and went for a walk along the beach and let the girls play on the Sounds Fun Playground, which they loved. The playground was great and there was a "beached" pirate ship to play on which they loved, so much climbing, you know everyone slept well tonight *grin*
What a little monkey, Lily climed up and when she asked for help getting down, I told her to wait a sec, so that I could grab my camera to get her picture.

I love this playground, it is huge and there is something for everyone to do and PLENTY of shade, which is really important on these hot summer days.
Miles and Jack just loved swinging on the swings, but I don't think that you can tell that, from looking at these pictures *hehe*
I just love days like this spent with my kiddos and good friends. I wish that summer would last forever. I don't want to go back to work in the fall, I love staying home with Allie and Jack. I wish that I could think of a way to make a little bit of money so that I COULD stay home... any ideas?

After we took some pictures we headed over to the tractors for a ride only to find out that the rides don't start until 3pm (it was 1 ish), so we decided to head out and go get some lunch and then come back and go for a hayride and get some Farm Fresh ice cream and but some sunflower bunches (they profit The Make A Wish Foundation). Well this was an adventure because there was nothing around. We ended up going somewhere between 15 and 20 miles before we found a gas station, did I mention my gas light was on and then a place for lunch. So we ate and headed back.
Allie was so exited to go on the hayride and I put Jack an the mei tai carrier, we got our tickets and got ready for our ride.

If you hadn't noticed, I loved photographing this old barn (and all old barns in general.)
Such silly innocence, I love my sweet girl!
Here are a couple more of my favorites from the day. I have to go to the little man who has woken up (it is 1:45 am! Yikes)
And a little purple cow ice cream to end a great day!
