Summer Bucket List- Pixie asked me to add something.

Piglet. She made the sweetest Snow White, I was able to get some cute shots of her. It was on my personal list to get pictures of the girls.

So, we've been home all summer. We are going camping but not until after school starts. Can I check that off our "Summer Bucket List" if it was booked during the summer? I say yes, because it's our list. I'm the list keeper and I make the rules. Right?
Speaking of list keeping and making the rules. Pixie asked to go to McDonald's. I have no issue with McDonald's once in awhile. But she was too funny. Sooo. Pixie- my four year old has asked to put something on our Summer Bucket list... "get a happy meal" because "we never get a happy meal, I want one so bad. "

Me- "what is it about the happy meal that you want"
Pixie- "I want to eat fries and nuggets and at the end you get to open a TOY"
Me- "so you just want a random toy?"
I told her before she starts school she will get her happy meal. It better be a good toy. So I added that to our bucket list. Our full list is at the bottom of this post after all of these pictures.
Diva as Belle. It was easy to get her to cooperate. I just told her to read :)

I told the girl's they could spend an afternoon reading with no interruptions if they let me take pictures. That worked fine for my older bookworms. Pixie? Couldn't care less, because she can't read yet. She wasn't having it. I got some cute pictures of her little face being silly though. Here she is as Tinkerbell, in her Darth Vader cape, because that's how she rolls. Like a BOSS.
The cape is from Halloween here-

The rest of the pictures are from Instagram-
 Fort building, and park playing. Good times.

 Paid for the person behind us at the drive thru.
 White House, at night. Junky picture.
 I made that pie crust. Then the plate fell off the board when I was taking pictures and broke. Maple Blueberry Pie. Did I already share this?
