Today we went over to Ben & Becky's to celebrate Bree's 4th Birthday. She had a swim party in the backyard and my mom was nice enough to bring her little pool for Rylee, Tate, and Drew to swim in. After the party my mom and dad babysat my kids while Bert and I went golfing with some of his family. I hadn't been golfing for 2 years and it was so fun to get out and play again!!

We celebrated Pops' birthday at a park in Farmington. It was really fun to see and visit with a lot of my family that I haven't seen for a while. After the party at the park we headed over to Rick's house to swim in his pool. The kids had a blast going down the slide! Then we headed back over to Pops & Gram's house for cake, cookies, and homemade lemon ice cream. So delicious!

We started off the day with breakfast at McDonalds. Nana, Tiff, Erin & her kids all joined us for the fun. After breakfast, we headed home and blew up the kiddie pool and then didn't really see the kids again until dinnertime ;)! They had so much fun swimming and stayed out their for probably about 5 hours!
In the evening, we headed over to Kangaroo Zoo to play for a couple of hours. The kids had a blast! We hadn't been there for a few years, since the kids were little enough that they needed help climbing up all the stairs and ladders, but this time they didn't need any help at all. It was a fun party!
I handed Rylee to Cooper when he was at the top of a slide so she could get in on some of the fun. Drew saw this and so got himself up onto the slide and then reached his arms out and started grunting that it was his turn to take her down. He loves Rylee and is always wanting to hold her or hug her or give her toys. They will be good friends when they are older.
After Kangaroo Zoo, we went back home for cake and ice cream and opening presents. He had a great day! My mom and I reminisced a little about what this day was like 7 years ago. It's sometimes hard to imagine that he is already 7, but it's also hard to remember life before he was born. Love you Jacks!

The boys have been taking swim lessons for the last 2 weeks at the Rec Center and the last day was a family swim day. Tiff, Mom, and I took the boys and Ry. The water was a bit cool when you first got in and Ry didn't especially like it. But, after she warmed up, she loved it and the boys were all eager to show off their new "skills." The pool was a bit crowded, but they still had fun.

It was so windy all day and so we didn't think they were going to be able to do the Summerfest fireworks. It has been horrible weather in the past and then cleared up just in time for the firework show. I was hoping that would happen again and we went over to Peggy's house to wait and see. It was still windy at 9:45 but by 10 it was pretty calm and they shot them off. I stayed inside with Rylee and watched them from Peggy's living room window and the boys went out to watch them with their cousins.

We went over to Mom and Dad's tonight to discuss some Disneyland details. We are going at the end of September to celebrate my Mom's retirement. The kids made a zoo for their animals and then watched a movie.
Drew can't get enough of Rylee. In fact, he only says about 6 words and Rylee is one of them. He loves her and always wants to be holding her or hugging her. He's very sweet and soft with her.
