We continue to stay busy each and everyday. So here are just some pictures of the kids enjoying what summer brings.
The 4th of July is just around the corner. The kids are sporting their red, white and blue!
Celebrating one of the neighbor girls birthdays.
Levi loves the little wiggly armed caterpillar sprinkler.
All wrapped up! She acts as if it's cold outside.
Since we are taking a break from gymnastics andd t-ball this summer we decided to try out a week of dance camp. I knew Addy would love it, but surprisingly even Jaidyn loved ballet as it was the theme for the week. I think my girls along with one or two others, were the only ones who wore normal street clothes instead of a fancy little leotard and skirt. Oh well, they didn't even seem to notice. Their performance was today at the end of class and I felt horrible as I didn't get back in time to see Jaidyn's performance. I did get to see Addy's dances and she did fantastic. It was special that she was able to use her favorite baby doll, Bella as a prop. There were so many people in the studio that Jaidyn didn't even know I wasn't there and when I asked her who she was standing by during the dance she said, "Didn't you see? You were there." Ooops! Man, I hate that I missed it. :(

Another year older! Wes and I celebrated our 31st and 32nd birthdays this past weekend. We celebrated with the kids and Papa JR and Mama LaLa earlier in the week with a trip to Silver Dollar City and then to Pomme De Terre Lake. On Thursday, the kids and I celebrated my birthday with a best friend of mine and her kids by having a picnic and eating cake at the park and then going to the local aquatic center. Friday and Saturday were spent helping my mom with her yardsale. YOu know you are getting old when you agree to have a garage sale on your birthday. Crazy!! We had a birthday dinner of lasagna at my moms on Friday and then they kept the kids for us Saturday night so that we were able to go out and stay at the lake house and celebrate our birthdays and upcoming 8 year anniversary (Tuesday). A night to ourselves was so nice and was spent eating at a restaurant on the water, listening to a live band, and cruising the lake in the dark. We were so exhausted from the week, that I fell asleep around 11:00 watching SNL.

Just watching the circular, up & down motion of Carnival rides make me sick to my stomach, so I usually get out of riding them. However, Wes wasn't able to fit in the back of this cute little caterpillar and I didn't want to disappoint Levi as he had waited in a long line to ride it, so I took Wes's place.
Yes, I wanted to barf!
Taking advantage of the shady trees.
Addy & Mama Lala on the jumping frogs!!
Can you tell by the look on "H" face that this ride was only going to go downhill?

My actual birthday was spent helping my mom with a yardsale at her house. Fun times!! Papa set up a soda stand for Jaidyn and she was such a great little seller. She took it very seriously. She learned how to count out her dollars and was able to give back 2 quarters when someone gave her a dollar. I tried to get her to split the money up with Addy and Levi, but she wasn't having it since she said she did all the work (which she did). I was able to convince her to give them each $2 for their piggy banks.
She already learning that she can multi-task at work. :)
