Bunk Beds and Stuff

So, these are the bunk beds that haveabecome a thorn in my flesh...they are just taking a lot longer to finish than originally planned! But my honey has done a really nice job on them! He is making them for friends of ours who are currently, as we speak, in Kazakstan picking up their sixth child, fifth daughter. They have already adopted one from Kazakstan and two from Liberia. Exciting stuff...
This is my little JoJo pretending that her shoe is a phone! Too priceless!
This is at the bayfront fountains, and this is typical Ben! A real boys' boy! Love it!
They really had fun, partly because they were almost the only kids there on a Monday evening!
Sam...splashing Ben...
Climbing...
This is just like the picture we took last summer except the kids are a year older! Kinda sad, but excting too! I can't believe I have a six year old and my youngest is almost two! I would normally have another baby by now! But that is not possible anymore and it's kinda sad...maybe God has another child for our family another way! Never know!

Lazy Daze

We had a lovely, lazy 4th of July....Brendan's brother Andy was in town and the kids had fun tackling and hanging all over him! It was very warm, but there was a breeze to help keep us cool, as long as we didn't move! The kids enjoyed keeping cool in the little pool that had some issues standing up right!

We went to a park downtown to watch the fireworks and it was amazing how being that close to the bayfront gave us a much nicer breeze! The men/kids played kickball, raced, & rolled down the hill while we waited!I got some corn at Target last week for 10/$1! What a steal! I should have gotten more! My wonderful boys helped by shucking it! How sweet!And my precious little girl was copying her brothers by making gun noises with this squirt gun...oh boy...
