Poor Rylee! She woke up with a fever yesterday and has been pretty fussy and unhappy. I'm not sure if she's teething (although she hasn't had a fever when any of her other teeth popped through) or if it's something more serious.

Bert's extended family on his mom's side has a reunion every summer. It lasted most of today and it was fun to see people that you only see once a year and catch up with them. The kids had a blast playing with all the cousins.

We hit Seven Peaks this morning with Ben & Becky's family (minus Jacks and Tessa who were at Science Camp). Cooper was hesitant to go on the slides at first, but we had a talk about how he needed to try everything at least once and then, of course, he loved them all!
After Seven Peaks we hung out at home for the afternoon and then headed over to Peggy's for a BBQ. Then the whole family played outdoor games. Of course we played kickball, then some game with the basketball hoop, and then we had a big group playing Annie-I-Over. It was so fun to spend time all together as a family!!

Rylee is getting so big. A few people mentioned today at church how big she is getting and when I said that she will turn 1 next month they couldn't believe it. She is growing up so fast! She has finally started waving goodbye (after 2 months of me trying and trying, she finally did it one day for my mom) and she says "Uh-oh". It is so cute! Can it be considered her first word if it's not really a word? :)

Bert and I celebrated our 9th Anniversary today! Peggy watched our kids while we went to La Jolla Groves for dinner. I really liked it. The food was delicious. Bert liked what he got, he just didn't get enough of it.:) So after dinner we decided to go down to Sammy's to try one of their famous pie shakes. We had been wanting to try one for a while and it just hadn't happened yet. Unfortunately their ice cream machine broke right before they were going to do our order so we had to wait a long time to get our shakes. I thought my shake was okay, not anything special, but maybe that was because of all the hype and because we had to wait so long to get it! I can't believe it's been 9 years!! Love you Bert!

Ry went to sleep just fine tonight but about an hour after we put her down she woke up crying and then didn't want to go back to sleep. We would rock her back to sleep but she would wake up as soon as we laid her down. I finally just went in to sit on my bed and played solitaire on Bert's phone while I cuddled with her. The next thing I knew she was asleep, and thankfully, stayed asleep the rest of the night!

Bert took the boys to Big 5 tonight to buy a kids Bocce set. I should have known that they wouldn't be able to go to a store like that and come home with just one thing ;). Jacks took his wallet with him and Bert said he went straight for this double hoop and wanted to buy it.

We have a tradition in my family to go watch the hot air balloon launch on the 4th. I've been going since Jacks was born and I think I've only missed once! We were disappointed last year because it was too windy for the balloons to launch, but this year the weather was perfect and we had a good time! After the balloon launch we headed back to mom and dad's for breakfast!
Dave brought this half-tent that he bought for soccer and it was perfect for Rylee! I could put her down to play with her toys and crawl around without worrying about her getting all dirty and eating everything she could find!

The kids all fell asleep on the way home from 4-wheeling. We let them sleep for a little bit and then woke them up to go to a BBQ at Peggy's house. Bert organized a Bocce tournament for adults and one for the kids. After the tournament, we all played a big round of kickball. Kids vs. Adults (this is the kids' favorite way to play!) Then we headed back over to Nana and Papa's to watch the Stadium of Fire fireworks from their backyard. I love the 4th of July!

We have a hill in our backyard which I didn't like when we first moved in. I had all these dreams and ideas about digging it out and putting a retaining wall in so it would be flat for the boys to play back there. I have since "seen the light" and love our hill!! It's perfect for sledding in the winter and slip n' sliding in the summer!

Bert had a Bocce tournament at his work this past week and he liked the game and thought it would be a good game for the kids to play. So tonight, while we were at Peggy's, we played Bocce and we all had a good time. It is a fun game and perfect for all ages to play!
