No, my chalkboard is still not finished! So many projects on the back burner now that I am working.
Our first stop, July 17th, Cameron's birthday we celebrated at Fast Lane in Lowell. The boys had a blast. Their favorite thing to do there was the Pirates of the Caribbean laser tag.
Caden concentrating while playing Deal or No Deal...
Movies and popcorn....check!
One of the boys favorite summer activity is going to the creek by our home. We also took family walks/bike rides on that road to the creek. Fun times!
My handsome boys!
The boys made spears to fish with. They did plenty of regular fishing too with dad.
We went camping the week of June 5th-7th. Our annual camping trip to the Illinois River in Oklahoma. We go every year with my In-Laws. They just bought a new camper trailer this past Spring that holds 8-10 people. It was nice. Hanging out, swimming, fishing, just good ole camping fun!
Seaweed fight anyone?
After an early morning fishing trip! Cameron checking out his fish!
Picnic, hiking, and caving with some cousins and grandparents at Devil's Den State Park.
Great memories for all!
Not just any boating...the finest hand-made boat at Grandma and Papa's!
Cameron and his favorite cousin Devin cruising the pond!
Grandma and Caden having a blast!
Boating and Tubing....check!
Our good family friends, Scott and Shonna invited us out for a day at Beaver Lake. Fun as always! We are a family who loves water and good friends!
Relaxin' with dad!
The only picture I didn't capture is the fireflies that were caught. The boys did, however, manage to find more friends along the way.
A baby lizard...
A baby frog...
Getting ready to watch fireworks and hang out with our family friends, Scott and Tammy. Food, fireworks, cards, swimming and lots of fun!
Our trip to Branson, MO. to the Grand Country Inn indoor water park. We enjoyed our time, and we got to spend time with Aunt Tara, Uncle Rodney, Devin, and Sharee!
The gang hanging out.
Making snow cones....lots of snow cones!....Check!
Playing in the sprinkler....inseparable!
Feeding/chasing the ducks! Check!
We only had one minor injury this summer. The day we went to the park for a cousin's birthday party, the same day the boys fed the ducks, Caden shut his own finger in the car door. Not fun for my little one. However, it certainly was not the level of fear I had in 2008 with Cameron.
Caden still upset and in pain!
As you can see we had a fun-filled, busy summer!
