Summer fun

There are so many fun things to do in the summer: swimming, jumping on the trampoline, going to the park, going on walks, yard sales, splash pad park. We are loving the good weather and having so much fun playing outside everyday.

Cheesy face

We found him sleeping this way, very fitting that he is wearing Spiderman jammies.

I love the hands in his pocket walk

We had a big yard sale as an adoption fundraiser. This was at the end of our driveway.

Our 4th

We love the 4th of July in our house. It always starts with a great neighborhood parade that my sister started 7 years ago. The cousins painted birdhouses at Grandma and Grandpa's. Then later in the day we went out to the lake for fun and fireworks. Lucas wasn't the biggest fan of fireworks because of how noisy they were. But it was a fun day.

All boy

The other day we were at my sister's house and all of the sudden we heard the motor bike and looked out the window and Uncle Cody was giving Lucas a ride. He loved it! They were going slow and on grass. (I always feel like I need to justify not wearing a helmet)

Riding with daddy

Then we got the lawn mower, or tractor as Lucas calls it, and he loved it. He said this was his favorite part.

When Ryan mows the lawn, Lucas loves helping. He mows right beside Ryan and always gives him a big smile and a thumbs up.

Summer Cousin fun

I think I must be on a summer schedule and I blame that on why I haven't posted in awhile. But lucky for you, I am catching up today! Lucas has a brand new cousin. He loves babies and is always so excited to see him and kiss him and say "He's so cute!" He is really soft with babies. It is really cute.
We had a barbeque, roasted marshmallows, and had an outdoor movie at Ryan's brother's house. Lucas loved playing and looking at the fire. We love summer and loved being able to be outside so much.

Sunday evening at Grandma and Grandpa's is fun for all the cousins.
Little Ava is such a sweet "little mother"
Ryan was throwing a handful of frisbees at the same time. The kids loved it.
Get the frisbees!
Lucas' cousins from Utah were in town and we went to a pool. He copied the older kids and laid on his towel. He loves these swim trunks. Guess what size they are? 12-18 months! I think swim trunks run big.
