Packing in the Summer

We've been packing in as much summer as we can over the last week or so. The two main reasons for this warm weather frenzy are:
1. jb was out of town for work (State budget stuff) for nearly a week and we manage our missing of her better when we are busy. 
2. We are going to Mexico for a month (I know!!!!) and we need to check off items from our summer bucket list lest we return with only a few weeks of summer left and a long list of summer activities to tackle. 

Plus we love summer.

We've picnicked often. 

Eaten ice-cream and water ice. 

Gone on many walks. 

Splashed in the water. 

Explored our fine city. 

We've also attended an outdoor concert, caught fireflies, and hung out with friends. All this activity and excitement has resulted in a lot of this:

I don't know if it's the sun, the exertion, or a growth spurt...but these kids (and Leo in particular) seem to be famished and exhausted all the time. 

Hopefully they are having an awesome summer - and will have an amazing trip to Mexico. We leave Friday (at like four freaking AM) and I am hyperventilating a bit about packing - as in suitcases. We need to make a months worth of supplies fit into three carryons and three personal items. I think it's going to work out. Just barely.
