Fun Day

What a beautiful day it was yesterday! We had a family outing at our theme park in town. My brother's family and cousin's family joined us. The older kids rode the bigger kid rides while the little ones rode the little kid rides. Most of the day we were split up. Baby R. slept pretty much her first trip to the park.

Treat time after lunch.

R. and I relaxing in the shade while the kids are on the ride in the photo.

C. LOVES to ride the horses, as she calls them. R. and I take her while the the others are on a different ride.

The Space Shot was the ride the older kids couldn't get enough of. They rode it about 5 times.

C. waited ALL day to get a bag of cotton candy. I'm not sure who at more, she or I.

Can't leave without getting a funnel cake.

Love Holding My sister

Big sister C. LOVES to hold and take care of her little sister. R. is getting to be more alert. She is watching the ceiling fan move in this photo. R. just had her 1 month check up. She weighed 10 pounds, 4 ounces and 22 inches long. She has moved into the 80% for height and weight.

July 4th Celebration

Celebration of the 4th of July is always bring us home. My grandpa's birthday is also the 4th, and he turned 89 this year. This year we didn't celebrate at his farm like usual. Grandma finally decided that getting ready for the 4th was a lot of work and let my uncle have the celebration at his house. The kids had 5 hours to bounce in a castle bounce house and play with their cousins. Then around 9, it was firework time. This year was a record low in temperature I could ever remember. The low temp and drizzly weather didn't bother the kids.

Cousins with their matching shirts.

July 4th is also my brother and sister-in-law's wedding anniversary. Happy 11th Anniversary Chris and Sara.

It was too cool for little R. to be outside. She slept while it was supper time and stayed awake for the fireworks.

Looking at the pretties in the sky.
