4th of July Weekend!


We went to Minnesota to my parents place for the fourth of July weekend. We do this almost every year, since my brother's birthday is 7/3, and my mom's is 7/4. It's a good time to get together around the pool, camp out, have a bonfire, and spend time with each other. I don't get to see them as often as I like, and the kids love spending time with their cousins. 


really, they do. Gavin is so funny with Beah. She is all Laue, and all up in your face and loving on everyone, and Gavin is all Bower, and much more reserved and likes his space. 




The tire swing is always a big hit with the kids. 



Grandma has been making Avery and the girls clothes all summer. This one is too adorable!




We tried to set up a game using pool noodles, but it quickly turned into fighting with pool noodles.



a nice bonfire, capped with a movie on the fence.

Sweet Summertime!


It's been a while. Summer is in full swing around here, and it's keeping us busy. We have been playing hard and working hard. 




We went to Florida at the end of May with Tony's parents to do Disney and vacation at their time share. 



The kids took right back up with swimming. They love the water. Our little waterbabies.




This was one of my favorite rides. The fact that it was one of the shortest rides had nothing to do with that either!



We arranged to have dinner with Cinderella and her friends one night. 




Spending some time in the UK at Epcot. Closest I may ever get. 






Hope the summer is as sweet for all of you, as it has been so far for us. Cheers!
