We are just plugging along through the summer doing lots of staying up late and sleeping in. The kids are playing outside a lot, much to Laila's and Isaiah's dismay. We are eating lots of popsicles. There have even been a couple of lemonade stands set up. There have been several sleepovers and playdates along with some swimming. We are doing some of the things on our summer list that we want to do and some that we need to do. Let's start with the ones that we NEED to do. I have been going through every room of the house decluttering for our upcoming yard sale. I can't believe how much we accumulate. It feels good to get it cleaned out.
Rick spent some of his time off painting
It has been several years since we painted the main level. It needed freshening up.
It looks so much better. Getting it painted is the first step towards getting new carpet(fingers crossed) someday!
We did our annual trip to Pirate's Cove
I didn't take any swimming pictures this time
I just wanted to enjoy the time in the water without having to tote a camera around
We had fun as always
The weather was perfect!!
Rick took Cody, Lauren, and Abby to set up their own personal savings accounts. It looks like Lauren took advantage of the free coffee!
Since we were in KY when it was Father's Day, we decided to do a little Father's Day breakfast at home for Rick. What Father's Day is complete without bacon? And...your welcome!
Rick reading through his book that the kids write in for him.
Working on our costumes
Sam and Isaiah went with a Cow Superhero Theme
Here we are, all dressed up.
Notice someone is missing. Rick chooses not to participate each year. I have no idea why!
7 free meals, now that is what I am talking about!
