I think the 4th of July might have been TOO much fun for this mama (I love you, Presidente ‘Ritas!). It appears that I forgot some photos existed! And somehow, when I uploaded my memory card, the following pictures didn’t upload with the pictures on my last post. ??? Which means…..another 4th of July post for you! Woohoo!
Here, the kids had made some sort of turtle houses. Funny story about D. He forgot his at the cabin and had a complete meltdown on the way home because his horrible mother forgot it! LOL. Yeah, not my turtle house, bud. hahaha. Anyway, Grandma and Grandpa held onto it for him and brought it to Cass Lake (next post, I promise) where it seemed like he had no recollection of the dang house at all! He blamed me for nothin!
Time for the Avery show!
I’ve realized that the reason why its always the Avery show is that she is still stuck to me like glue. Like she has been since birth. I should maybe just get out her baby carrier and strap her in. Might be easier than having her on my heels all the time. 😉 So anyway, its all Avery, all the time. Dylan who?
Here’s Maya. I seem to remember being asked to “take pictures of the dogs for me, will ya!?!”
They also wanted a picture of themselves and the dogs together. Rocko, not pictured.
More of the Avery show! I see my Presidente glass there. Mmmm
More sparkler photos! How could I have forgotten these?!?!
Daniel’s pants were too big and kept falling down. Once he knew that this amused us, he kept letting them fall over and over again.
Until eventually, he just gave up and took em off!
Here’s Rocko, sittin’ on a rock.
Taco Jon came up with the brilliant idea of taking a kayak out into the bay to set off a lantern. It seemed like a good idea….
For some reason it was really foggy.
The lantern from the kayak was an epic fail (not pictured, I got bored and quit watching) so they came back to the dock to do it instead.
I love these 2 pictures. Kinda blurry/hazy cuz of the fog, but they are still pretty cool.
And here we are back at home. We had a week of home time before heading out for the family camping trip to Cass Lake.
Avery learned to ride her bike with NO training wheels so that was big news! Dylan learned when he was 3 (almost 4) and Avery is freshly 4 and riding on 2 wheels now. So they are neck and neck on that milestone!
Dylan and Eric found this bike on the side of the road and decided it had to be his!
Love these pictures of her!
She reminds me of tiny Trishy here.
Eric bought a couple of kayaks (one new, one used). Finally. Dylan was really excited! Eric, not so much. Cuz the used one he bought was no bueno. So he wasn’t pleased. You’ll be happy to hear that he sold it on craigslist for 30 dollars more than what he paid for it. And he’s heading to town today for a shiny new hot pink one – for the ladies! 🙂
Okay, get excited. Cass Lake edition, coming right up! Might need more coffee for this!
