Summer Fun

We've been so busy with summer playing that I just realized I haven't posted anything for a month! So here's a photo documentary of our doings.

Lee's birthday cake- he celebrated 29 this year! Those are Reese's Pieces all over the cake. No I didn't make it and yes, I ate a LOT of it. Yum!

We got home from a walk and when I told Wyatt it was nap time, he climbed in Jana's bed instead. I'm glad they like each other!

We went to the zoo for an afternoon during Lee's family reunion. Wyatt likes his "puppy backpack" but insists on holding the tail himself, which pretty much defeats the purpose.

I thought the huge penguin would scare him, but he was fascinated. He even have the penguin a fist-bump when we left!

First official dress-ups!

Wyatt likes to try everything at least once. Including sparkly blue heels.

4th of July picnic. Wyatt had about half the watermelon by himself!

Mommy & Jana

Having thoroughly trashed the front room, they both laid down for a drink. I had to laugh, cute little monkeys.

He stole Jana's headband and tried it on too. Lately he prefers to have it around his neck like a bowtie, so it's slightly more masculine, right? :)

Hiking at Silver Falls, where we had the Pyper reunion. It was a blast, but I only took a few pictures (there were several nicer cameras and better photographers, so I am hoping to mooch their pictures instead).

Hiking through these forests, I found myself unconsciously watching for Edward. I wasn't at all disappointed to find Lee instead.

She is SO sweet. This is her authentic Hawaiian outfit from Uncle Brian and Aunt Heidi.

Turns out my kids like corn on the cob...

...Both of them!

He still is a snuggly little guy every once in a while, but he's getting busier and more independent every day. *sigh*

Daddy showing off his new wetsuit. He's decided to tackle the Rush Triathlon (1 mile swim, 25 mile bike, 6 mile run) just for kicks. It's in 2 weeks, and I think he'll do great.

Wyatt likes to get in the wading pool fully clothed, ideally just moments after I have gotten him dressed for the day. At least he's having fun!
Hope you are all keeping busy with summer time playing and family get-togethers and barbecues and camping and all the fun that goes with it! I noticed a few tiny green pumpkins peeking out of the leaves today, fall is coming quickly. Guess we better focus on getting some more summer play in!
Lots of love and Popsicles,
Melody & Co.
