July in pictures

Here are a few pictures from our adventures in July...so far. The first two are from our 4th of July BBQ. We had a great time with our friends and their children... 5 kids ages 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. At one point in the evening, I pointed out that it would be biologically possible for one of us to be the mother to all the children in the backyard. Biologically possible? Yes. A good idea? Well....

Below: 4 of the 5 kids. Poor Lola was the only girl and evidently that tree house dining experience was a little much for her. You know how boys are when they're in big groups--- all burps and fart jokes.

Below: The 4th of July cupcakes Ben helped make. In this photo he's negotiating for a Bomb Pop after he finishes the cupcake. His negotiation worked. We had to do something to make sure he'd stay awake through the fireworks. With liberty and sugar for all.

On Sunday, we did some swing set upgrades. We got rid of the old "baby" swing, added a brand new swing and installed this cool horse swing made from a tire that Papa and Grandma bought for Ben.

After he figured out how to get on the horse, he enjoyed the ride. Thanks, Papa and Grandma!
