The End of an Era

Not really the end of an era, just a fancier way of saying the last bit of time before Oliver turns THREE. AKA - June 2015
Lately, the little guy has gotten extremely fun to play with. His imagination is going wild and the things that come out of his mouth make us laugh all day long. {Example - "I'm too busy." or "What choo talkin' 'bout. Are you crazzzzy?"} Along with that comes mega not so fun tantrums - - the whole 'Ollie DO it!!!' And DO it Ollie's way, or else.
What am I complaining about, look at this little puppy dog...
 I am so glad we stuck with two more weeks of swim lessons.
He finally got it and is a swimming machine now. Yes!
 He now jumps off the diving board, over & over & over again. The only thing he won't do is go down a slide. I haven't forced it, but I know when he does he will do that over & over & over.
Aunt Beth bought this awesome inflatable swim slide. It's all sorts of fun.

After swim lessons, Ollie would be really tired, not tired enough to actually take a nap, but check him out trying to eat this cinnamon roll.

After a month of swim lessons, I told my mom during "nap time" we were going to try these. They were tasty & cheap. Win win! I can't remember what the place is called, but it just opened up in downtown Mesa on Main Street.
We walked down the street one afternoon because I saw that there was life at the Skousen's house. We chatted & Ollie played with this awesome soccer ball  hat and motorcycle.
After a day of playing at Beth's, Lucy sent me home with this beyond amazing "poster" she made.
Ha ha ha. That girl is hilarious. She takes random pictures from calendars or what have you and sticks them on her homemade posters. That girl is the bomb.
Ryan turned 8 and got baptized which is super rad.
 We took Ollie to see Inside Out - which we all loved, but found Ollie's best buddies in the lobby pre-movie. We cannot wait for this movie to come out in the fall!!!

{Have I mentioned sometimes Oliver refers to himself as 'Linus.' Usually after he has been mean and decides to be nice he says something like "Linus is a nice boy." - Should I be worried?}
 We celebrated Father's Day. Honestly, I have zero recollection of the day...it was really special though, obviously.
We love you, Jordan! You are the best dad Oliver has or could ever hope to have. Really, you are the best - - you do everything for us and we love you for it. ♥♥♥
"A dandelion!!! Must be the last one of the season!" - - quote from Ice Age
Most mornings the first thing Ollie does is run to the front door to check if daddy's truck is outside. Most of the time it is not, which means he is at work & Oliver walks away slightly deflated. It's pretty cute.
Oliver loves Play-Doh. He likes to make snowmen, Humpty-Dumpty & here is when dad made him look like a ridiculous boy scout or flight attendant. "Nice ascot." - - quote from Toy Story 3
Photo bombed by Pirate Bapa!
More afternoons playing in irrigation AND sprinklers. Double whammy! 

In preparation for The Minion Movie {which we were all excited for and extremely disappointed by - even Oliver was bored}, Grandma dressed Ollie like a minion.
He thought it was pretty awesome and I realized we had way more minion themed clothes than I originally thought.
That sums up June! On to July...
