Summer comes with lots of fun outdoor stuff. It also comes with lots of heat, so swimming is always a good outlet.
We got back from our vacation just in time for the end of season party for soccer
Here's Coach Dan handing out the trophies
Now with the assistant coach
Swimming next door
Taking a break for popcicles
Levi and Gabe liked theirs
Another happy girl
Craigslist and a few boards later and Cory made a racing slide
Giving it a try
Little miss loves her remotes
8 months old
Such a cutie
With her big brother
My father's day 'cake' a favorite tradition of mine
Looking sleepy at the pool
Brooke swimming with them
Look out, behind you!
He loves playing with his friends
And she loves watching big kids
Playing is sleepy work
The hat for some sun shading
That cheesy smile.
Wrigley was spending a lot of time with Mimi while his parents got used to having Abby around and they came for a visit
Bethany wants to see that toy
Playing with the ball popper
Little miss plays on the ground a lot now
Sometimes you need a hat
Even if it is a popcorn bucket
Little miss got a new hat
It just so happens it looks like a cabbage patch doll's hair
Wrigley wearing a different hat. They were having fun playing, though he kept telling her to stop when she was moving the elephant blower part.
He didn't let that stay on long.
She's used to bows and such on her head.
Little crawling girl
Hanging out with Brooke and Ashley at lunch
If you look very closely you can just see Bethany's first tooth, which she started getting right around 9 months
She likes playing with goggles and glasses
Unfortunately she also likes crawing out of her cruiser
She thinks she can crawl on water
Touring around the pool with mommy
Playing with the water
Playing with the water coming in, trying to spray it around.
Hanging out in the theater after watching Epic, next to a display for another movie we want to see
Little miss at one of her classmate's parties
At another party for a friend's daughter
Good think she doesn't mind all this stuff on her like the lei and head band.
I was trying to take pictures of Bethany's tooth.
She was trying to play with my phone, though you can see the tooth here.
Best shot so far.
4th of July in their homemade shirts
We went to the League City festival with the Esbecks
Little miss in her bow that she would wear some of the time.
Eating some popcorn
And of course some cotton candy
Quietest they were the whole time.
It didn't last though
Almost looks like a beard
Most of the family. Levi was playing at the time.
With the miss
She likes swinging
And crawling to play with Levi's old toys.
Fourth of July night Kendra, Levi and her dad and Rhonda went to watch fireworks while I stayed home with Bethany. Good thing, since simple ones we shot later scared her.
