Here we are at the lake about 1.5 hours away. I love this state park. It is awesome. I've been coming here since I was a kid and we have been here at least once a year with the kids now too. From the top to the bottom:
PIC 1: Ave's hand splattered with mud...or beach sand
PIC 2: The Inn
PIC 3: Baylor's tootsies
PIC 4: Ave's enjoying the "waves"
PIC 5: Cute muddy feet
PIC 6: That was work getting him to sleep on me at the beach
PIC 7: Attempt to get both kids in one pic without one of them running, jumping, crawling or hopping away. It almost worked!
PIC 8: Happy boy on the slide
PIC 9: Focused girl on the slide

We are already planning another possible camping trip for September. My parents purchased a "pop-up" camper (not new, not old...a couple steps up from a tent!). So we can go camping and not get soaked when it rains.

There's a bear in here somewhere!

Three girls enjoying the zoo! The boys were in the strollers!

Wagon time!!

I had to beg Averie to stay in the wagon for one ride around the yard! She just wanted to run around and play! Figures! :o)

Get me outta here she said!!

Baylor messing up the kitchen! He was offering me a chicken leg! He absolutely loves Averie's kitchen. He will crawl over there all on his own and pull himself up and open doors and take everything out and loves it! Good thing he is getting one for Christmas...shhhh, don't tell! ;o)

We had a family reunion about 40 minutes south of our home. It is at a city park and we usually get to go swimming and play in the huge, nice, awesome, refreshing pool. But this year...we got to play in puddles and wear babylegs on our arms b/c it was chilly and raining. :o) I don't think anyone minded!


Wet feet!

Yum! A water bottle!

On our visit to Rece and Carmine's for a couple of days we had all four children in the car on the way to an outlet mall. It was so hot but everyone did well!

Averie and Rece reading! We had a great time and everyone did great and had fun!

A playdate with Jett.

Averie stopped to pose!

Last night in the big pool at home. It is a whopping 86 degrees in the pool! TOASTY!

Averie about ready to get it!
Served Averie fresh milk for 1 year, 2 months and 5 days! Served Baylor fresh milk for 1 year, 6 months, 1 week and 5 days! Served Colbie fresh milk for 1 year, 3 months exactly!
