Summer Schedule

Summer is officially here - it is hot, a famous Idaho windstorm has blown over (and destroyed, gosh darn it) the backyard gazebo, and the kids are driving me crazy! LOL Just kidding, the kids aren't doing bad at all (although Hero did spill neon green juice on my rug today, grr), but we've been taking the "keep-em-busy" approach this summer. They're doing VBS this week, next week Hero leaves for Camp Pinewood and Ian has golf lessons. The week after next the three older ones are all in swimming lessons, and Hero and Allegra start figure-skating lessons which last through August. Prevention is the best cure for stir-crazy kids.

Happy Birthday to James & Party Pics!

Happy 32nd Birthday James, we love you (even though you are getting SERIOUSLY old :-P). Here's some pictures from Colin's birthday party last Saturday. We had it in our backyard - you'd think that June would be a safe month to plan an outdoor party, but it was cold and windy. We braved the elements anyways and it was a good thing we had the party outside due to the extreme mess Colin made with his birthday boy cake. He ate an astonishing amount of it and then he began to play with it - sticking his feet in it and crawling all over it. It was priceless!
