4th of July Fun

We started the Fourth of July Weekend with the celebration at the high school.  It stormed and fireworks were delayed, but we enjoyed good food and treats and friends.

Monday we beat a storm and got our family pictures done at the South Fork Thread Trail in Lincolnton.

Sarah had a fever on the 4th, so Jeremy took the big kids to Meems and Peeps for a cookout and to swim.  At dark we had ice cream and fireworks with the Taylors.

We enjoyed the Y pool on Wednesday.

On Friday, we took jeremy's car to get an oil change and Haven made a "water bed."

We have been checking on the Bradley's chickens while they are on vacation and we have their hermit crabs at home.  They enjoy the dogs the most.

Second Week of Summer

The second week of summer started with a wonderful father's day celebrating a wonderful daddy. These kids are lucky.  

I love my daddy too. He is one of the best.

I love this girl's face in goggles.

The girls had three days of horse camp at Cherry Acres.  They loved it and are asking to go again.

Jensen and I had a date at the park for a bike ride and play time.

Jovie loved Cam during camp but rode Maverick in the show.

Haven rode Jet.

We have had so much rain lately and the kids always love getting muddy.

Jensen got his first short summer haircut.  I miss his blond locks.

All 5 watching a video.  So cute.

Friday, we went uptown for exploring.  We hit up a Berry Bowl food truck, The Greens, Wells Fargo Museum, and Imaginon for the Tinker Toy exhibits. 

Jeremy took the kids up to his floor so they could see where he works and get a view from 9 floors up.

Saturday, we explored a little around Murray's Mill and ate lunch at The Landing on the lake.
