Some of the family started celebrating the fourth before the rest with an early morning trip to watch the hot air balloons take off. The rest of us started making breakfast and by the time they got home, Conrad was just in time to flip some pancakes. He is delighted to cook anything : ) Later, we went swimming and BBQing at Larry's Mom and Dads, then back home for our street fireworks, which is always fun with the neighbors. It was a great day to celebrate America and be together.

Summer is here and we spent a hot and sticky day at a little lake in Highland. Adventure Park I believe... parents teaching their kids the ins and outs of fishing. No fish on this day, but we sure had a good time together.
In Abby's spare time she makes all sorts of cute handmade things for the consignment area at Pebbles... all kinds of banners, booklets and purses. Today she is making a couple of new tote bags and is figuring out the measurements. They are sure to look pretty!
In our house there are different layers of leftovers. There is a spaghetti dinner #2, the day after spaghetti dinner #1 and then there are the kind of leftover dinners where we have tuppers and baggies of all sorts of things that just do not go together well and the kitchen smells like all of our past meals all at once... not my favorite kind of meal but it sure is good on the budget and for that I am grateful for.
