Soren Says...

Soren is in rock climbing camp and it's... Awesome!  To say the least.  He loves it.  I have a feeling Rockquest may become a staple event at least once a week from here on out.

While climbing, Soren says -

'If you don't get it the first time just keep trying. You have to practice! It's very fun.'

Day 1.1 - not quite making it to the top.  He may have inherited my fear of heights, but traversing like a champ:

Day 1.2 - try, try - try.  Don't give up.  If you listen closely - you can hear him say 'no matter what.'

Day 2.  He makes it up!

Day 3.  He hit the ropes and made it half way to the top and belayed down.  I can't wait to hear what adventures Day 4 holds!

Catching up!  This is from ballet camp.  My IG feed is filled with Cincinnati ballet camp goodies.  Soren attended Peter Pan and LOVED it.  So much that he's asked to come back.  His pliés are precious.  I cried, of course. 

Summer is the time for sprinkler magic!  Needless to say this got muddy real fast.  Soren had a blast!  More of these pics to come.

25 coming soon and an update on how this summer is going.  The 'Soren Say's' I've compiled thus far are filled with ridiculous amounts of adorable.  More to come soon!  Happy 2015 Summer folks!

Around Here - Second Sunday on Main

Hello my dear recently quiet writing space!  Time for a Cincy shout out.

We've been staying busy this summer making the most of Soren's time off from school.  Yesterday we had some righteous Cincy heat, but had to hit up Second Sunday on Main, which is an absolute must to put on the summer to-do list if it isn't already.

this kiddo, this city. #lovecincy #sorenrules

The heat required lavender-lemon and salted carmel streetpops straight away, then lamb sliders from Hungry Bros. and finished off with a Beario from Brown Bear Bakery.  Soren got his first official bow tie - too cute, free face painting.  Of course - a tiger.  Then off to Washington Park spray ground to splash around with a buddy.

This city has so much to offer, I can't begin.  As if the local parks and recreation weren't enough, Soren's days have been filled with camps from Ballet, bug hunting, animal exploration, rock climbing and the Circus.  Thanks Cincinnati, for being so rad!

So late in getting this up!  And so much more to share about this experience.  Soren was a Flower boy for the last May Festival Concert May 30, 2015.  He was so brave and helpful AND SOOO patient.  Videos and more pics coming soon!  The tux was too much for this momma.  Yes - he's wearing Chuck Taylors to accompany the black and white of the tuxedo.  #stylin' #chucksntux

I am late in getting this up, but I took this last week after our first really good Spring rain.  The first without thunder and warmth for Soren to make a muddy, splashing mess.  I look forward to this every year.  Needless to say, these are some of my most favorite moments to catch.  The green of spring and Soren's energy are priceless.
