Backyard movies

We invited the neighbor kids and Adurey & Arwyn to watch Tangled in our backyard. The kids turned a washing machine box that we scored from the neighbors into a ticket office. We got some raffle tickets for $1 at the dollar store and made loads of popcorn. It was so much fun!!

We really want to do this again, there is just something about watching movies outside with the kids, just pure fun!!

We left McKinley with Nana Sue and took the kids fishing. We had a great time and I even caught a big bullfrog. Both kids caught their first fish. The only drawback was that we didn't know how long the walk would be from the car. We should have brought a wagon or stroller to haul all our stuff. But it was super fun and both kids had a great time.

3 weeks of fun!

If you can make sense of all these picture's then you have an idea of what we have been up to.
I was able to go on a family genealogy trip with my Mom and almost 90 year old grandma. We found out way more than we ever thought we would find, and it was really a trip of a lifetime. Did I mention that the kids stayed home with Tim's cousin who is also a nanny. That was the longest time I have ever spent away from the kids and I missed them like crazy.

I was home for 1 day and then we went camping with our church community group. We were able to borrow my best friends RV and I'm not sure I will ever go back to a tent ;)

Then Reagan turned 9!!!!! Did you get that, our baby turned 9! And the last picture is me and Mia. Mia is moving away and we had her over for a play date. We are really going to miss her family!!

Reagan turned 9 yesterday. She is saving her money so she can go shopping in NYC in September when we are there for a family wedding.

We love you Reagan! What a sweet girl you are growing up to be.
