Welcome Home, Annie!

She came hoe with us today!

Welcome to your new life, Anie!

July 4th

Another great fourth of July parade in beautful downtown Turner (pronounced Tuhneh).

And Ava and Iris were in the parade this year!

Evvie took a few serous whacks at the pinata, but when the candy came crashing down, she explained why she wasn't among the children in the fray: "Daddy, I got lots of candy in the parade, so I don't need that candy". Nice.

Here's a cute video form the beginning of the festival before all the madness and crowds began.
First, Evvie coaches her brother how to climb up the tower...

Next they slide down and watch as Reid does the same!

After the excitement, A little pony named Faith gave the family a ride bac to our car. Fun!

Dance Recital

Grandma Sue and Grampa Jim came north for Evelyn's dance recital on Saturday. She started excited for the rehearsal, and didn't stop her excitement until all was well over. In Evvie's words, "I want to do that a hundred and a million more times!"

Children's Museum

Tuesday was a reta day to go to te Children's Museum with the kids. FAMILY FIELD TRIP! We spent hours and hours there, doing some of the following:

Both kids were super-serious about their face paint.

They played for quite awhile in the vet room, giving shots, locking animals in their cages and knocking them on the floor. The usual stuff.

Evelyn got temporarily thrown in the Brig by some pirates, but don't worry, Levie saved her.

After that, we headed to the Deering Oaks for a picnic lunch (including oranges).

Hot or Thirsty?

It's supposed to be a wacky sprinkler. Turns out it's just as good a straw.

We're getting a puppy!

And we're so excited about it, Hallie took the kids there for a visit with the soon-to-be newest addition to our family. Aren't they cute?

Yes, she's a Golden Retriever, and that's her mom, Moxie, in the foreground. We can't wait until July 5!

Bradbury Mountain Hike

We took a nice family hike at Bradbury Mountain State Park this weekend. It was pretty foggy at the top, but the kids both surprised us with their stamina. (Of course it's not a long hike, but they're little). Levi was especially into the climbing and just motored up the thing. Check out the video to hear him chatter about it.
