July passed by in a rainy blur. We spent the 4th of July at the lake. In between storms, we ventured out for some quick trips, but mostly, it just stayed wet.
The kids attempted to fish in the pond, but I don’t think the fish liked the rain either.
But wait a minute. What is this one doing?
Torturing Playing with the bait.
Finally, Patrick was successful! Way to go!
The beach week has come and gone again. The memorable parts were rain, clouds and jellyfish. But, we did have a good time. Samantha really enjoyed the pool more than the beach and wanted to spend all her time there. Ellie enjoyed both.
My granddad’s 80th birthday party was at the Lake this year. It was lots of food, family, and great weather. Even though the day started out with a major mishap involving a blueberry pie, I think all the evidence has been cleaned up by now.
And check out this great picture from Lizzie’s blog. Boy, Sam sure does love pumpkins. I guess it’s good that she’s an October baby.
We’re still working through all of our pictures, but here’s one for proof. We had lots of fun.
What a trip! We stayed in the big house again, and it seemed like there weren’t as many people there as usual. I guess that’s because there wasn’t.
Sam enjoyed the water this year, but was still a little anxious at first. Every year, it takes less time for her to get used to the water.
Ellie didn’t mind the sand at all, but I think the heat bothered her.
I think she enjoyed Patrick’s truck almost as much as he did! We also discovered during this trip, that she likes push toys and wheels!
And some family:
