A Surprise Visit

Our friends the Risenmays usually come to spend the Forth of July with us, 
but they were unable to make it this year :(
They were able to swing by and surprise us on their way home from a family vacation though :)

Hannah and Lea have been friends since birth.

Lucas and Eli had fun hanging out.

All day long it looked like it was going to rain (hence the umbrellas). 
It never did, but the kids had fun!

Mo and Jonas on the trampoline

 Me and my good friend, Alison

We had fun going to the river to feed the birds.  When we got there, I proudly thought to myself that none of my kids had ever fallen into the river.  Well, as they say, pride cometh before the fall...

...and in fell Jonas.  He was a little cold and we retrieved his flip flop too.

Getting ready to say goodbye.

Summer with Family

It's always fun to spend time with family during the summer.
The boys are watching/waiting for turns riding the Harley.

The girls got together for a sleepover at grandma's studio.
They did nails, made crafts, decorated cupcakes, did hair...

...and had a fashion show, of course!

They love grandma and aunt Vicki!

The cousins love getting together to play.
They had a movie night too :)

Each year we go to the river for the Roaring Youth Jam.  
My kids love crafts, and that is what it's all about!

Summer Baseball

Eli played coach pitch baseball this summer.  He did excellent.  
He was able to play with some of his friends, so that made it even more fun!

T-Ball for Jonas

Jonas played T-ball this summer with a lot of his friends from the neighborhood.
It was so cute.

Cool Pic

I found this little gem going through Brady's cell phone pictures. 
 I think it looks amazing.  I just had to share.
(It's Hannah)

Swimming Lessons 2013

The kids did swimming lessons at the aquatic center again this year.  
Hannah and Eli are getting to be great swimmers and 
Jonas is able to swim without his life jacket.
They have each improved so much!




Grandma Lori came to watch the kids on the last day of class!
