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.

Pictures are in the mail.

At Girls' Camp, Kate's friend deleted all the pictures on Kate's camera=HEARTBREAK. We're taking the camera in this afternoon to see if the images can be recovered. Kate had the most good pictures of you guys at that waterfall where Dennis and Adam received aqua frostbite. I hope we can get them back.

Love and miss you all. Nice wetsuit, Lee.

I swear your kids get cuter and cuter every time I see them! That picture of Janna in the Hawaiian dress is priceless...she looks like a baby doll! Hope all is going well...and yes, enjoy summer, winter will be here before you know it!

Mel- your the best. I love your photo documentary as well as well as your written commentary. You always make me laugh. Hope you summer continues to go swimmingly - even if it means fully clothed!

Okay the dress up picture cracks me up and the wet suit picture just reminds me of how fun that tri is!

When is the next time you are coming this way?

Glad to see that it looks like things are going for you all. You will have to post how Lee did in his triathlon.

Tara said...

Was that Silver Falls in Oregon or is there a different Silver Falls I'm not aware of? We were just there end of July. Your kids are cuties!
