We’re getting back to business as usual around here. Which means nightly boat rides and swims. Its definitely the hottest weather we’ve had all summer so we’re trying to make the most of it. Winter is unfortunately just around the corner for Minnesota. Booooooo.
She didn’t want to get in right away for some reason.
Changed her mind once I was getting in.
Not water boy – we had to really talk him out of the water this time.
He loves being towed slowly by the boat. Me, not so much. Hurts my back after awhile.
He’s always so delighted though, so its hard to say no.
Yesterday was July 25th, so we had a few Christmas in July activities. I put together a scavenger hunt for them. Dylan “read” the directions and Avery carried the bag to carry their treasures.
We had to break to put on hats b/c the horse flies are STILL SOOOOO bad here. Hats help a little but not much.
He’s wearing my Warrior Dash hat and a new shiner he got yesterday from horsing around on his bouncy hopper thingy and ramming into a chair. Totally goes with the hat. I told him he was definitely a Warrior.
They had such a good time with this.
Finding the final treasure.
Sweet! A box of cake mix!
And here is the Christmas in July cake! I made the espresso chocolate frosting that I made back in February for Eric’s birthday. Seriously good stuff. Give it a try if you are in the market for a cake soon.
I realize there are 3 pictures of her in a row here, but her smile was so bright because she was so excited about her “budday tate” part 2 (she was CONVINCED it was all hers and that it was her birthday again) that I just had to post all 3 of her. Seriously cute.
She’s not naked, she has shorts on! Tried to take the mess to a minimum on her shirt. So I figured this would work well.
Merry Christmas in July!
