July 2013

Summer is in full swing and staying up late and sleeping in have become regular occurances around here.
 These will be hard habits to break once school starts the end of August, but we'll worry about that later!

There is a very cool park on the other side of town that we venture to every once in a while.  It seems as though everything in the park (ok, almost everything) spins.  This is very exciting for our children but Jesse and I have noticed that spinning is not nearly as much fun when you're old.

Jesse took the girls camping with his parents and called shortly before they left to come home to tell me "Irelyn fell and has a little scratch on her forehead" due to a fall out of the camper.  By the time they arrived home an hour later the eye was purple and almost completely swollen shut.  My Piglet is a tough kid though and didn't complain once.

Our backyard has made for some very pretty viewing this summer.  We absolutely love where we live!

Jesse had four entire days off from work over the 4th of July so we planned a fun get-away for us and the girls to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  We stayed at a hotel that had water slides, miniature golf, go-carts, bumper boats, rock climbing and an arcade!  Fun was had by all.  

Excited to be staying in a hotel.

Tippie Toes to reach the games in the arcade.

Brooklynn was a natural on the rock wall.

Irelyn was a little more hesitant.

Ready for miniature golf.

Jesse and his co-pilot.

A sad Piglet, who was 1/2" too short to ride on the go-carts.

Coeur d'Alene also has a very nice lake that made a beautiful setting for fire works, a first for Irelyn. 

Waiting at the lake for the fireworks to start.

Our happy Piglet before heading home.

And now just a few random pictures from the last month.

Our almost-kindergartner!!

Our almost-preschooler!!

Best buddies....most of the time.

Jesse now has room to practice with his bow.

Thanks for checking in on us.  Have a wonderful July and keep in touch.

  1. So much fun! Colin is going to have a hard time getting up for kindergarten too. He's figured out that sleeping in is fun! Ben, on the other hand, still gets up at 6:30.
