16 Days of Summer Vacation: Day 6

Day 6 was an action packed day full of outdoors, family activity and kids being summer kids. 

Theo was up early and in an attempt to let the rest of the house sleep in, he & I headed out for breakfast and some truck hunting at our new favorite corner. We hit the jackpot with 3 garbage trucks, 2 tractor trailers, numerous box trucks and untold numbers of landscape trucks. 

After returning home, a movement was made for Strawberry picking at Sweet Berry Farms. The pickings were slim, but a good time was had by all. 

And Dave and Theo are not color coordinated Dutch fans. Honest!

The night brought a great cookout with the family (Joined by Grandpa & Ivonne and Mikey, who arrived late on Day 5) and a massive game of Kick the Can, led by Dave the biggest kid of all.  All the neighborhood kids joined in and played for about 2 hours. The only pause was to make, eat and obliterate strawberry shortcakes - including an entire can of whipped cream. 

Meanwhile, in the backyard, some touching big cousin, little cousin moments. (Sadly, the flash wasn't working well to capture this as clearly and tenderly as it actually was).
