More Parades!

Lets just say Kane County Fair Parade = Crap!!! Excellent entries but the route they take is crap. All year long every parade takes the same route. But not the fair parade they change it every year and now no one knows where to go. Why change something that works. So with that said we were told it would go by our house like all the other parades and only about four people did. I guess if we really want to see it bad we will go to main street next year. And still that is no guarantee. Morgan and Colton showed up with Colton's water balloon launcher and let me just say that was way more entertaing than a parade!

Enjoying a Popsicle.

Teenagers doing what they do best.

My kids were fascinated with this contraption.

It got really interesting when my "older" brother showed up:) They were only warned twice by two different police officers one told them not to break any windows and the other "my cousin" attempted to taze them ;) Fun was had by all!!!

Ponderosa:) :) :)

We've been to the Ponderosa twice this year. To say we had a blast both times would be an understatement. So without further adoo... I'll let the pictures speak for themselves! There's tons of them so enjoy:)

In July we went camping with our very good friends Gerry and Jill (also relatives) We had so much fun and the kids had a blast. They said it was the best camping trip ever! I have to agree:)

All I can say about this picture of Keira is that she is her fathers daughter:)

Can you say CHEESE!!!!!

She's a princess even with a dirty face ;)

I told them to strike a pose.

There were some really good star wars battles.

Just kickin' back.

You might be a redneck with your doughnut tire and training potty! We had a little tire trouble and Zoe did amazing going potty in the woods. You'll have to ask her about laying a bear trap!
Some thing her dear old daddy taught her! Man I love that man!

Gavin and Kinlee taught the kids how to play a new game. It was very funny watching them strike the right pose! Here they are meditating.

Mighty cookers!

I just love this picture. There is nothing better than cousins. We're so glad we have the privilege of living so close to so many family members. We are definitely going to make this a yearly occasion. We just had to much fun. Thanks Gerry, Jill and kids for going with us!

Family Night

We had a fun family night a couple weeks ago. We had a lot of extended family around so it was great to get together and visit.

The spectators!

Zoe and Keira my little fish and mermaid!
