July Update



It's been a super busy July and it is going way too fast! I haven't even been able to keep up with my blogging...here's a few updates for the first couple weeks of July.

After celebrating Grant's birthday it was the 4th. We attended our association's annual bike parade. We decorated the bikes and bike trailer with all sorts of red, white and blue stuff. We rode down to the starting point, only to discover we were early! But we took advantage of the extra time and rode on over to McDonald's for some smoothies.

At the end of the parade, we jumped on moonwalks, rode in hostage units and ate some pizza.



Then...after cooling down for a while, we stopped by my parents for a cookout and then headed to Leo for the fireworks. Our church had a huge area staked out...so we were able to visit with some friends as well. It was a beautiful night. Grant wasn't a fan of the fireworks and after crying for about 20 minutes...finally calmed down once I hid him under a blanket on my lap.




It's been super hot...so we have been playing in the backyard and swimming a lot!









Plus...


--we went to the 3 River's Festival Parade and walked around downtown


--Andy spent hours and hours painting street signs in a neighboring neighborhood (for which he is their "handy-andy"


--growing and tending to our garden! Not bad for a few sprouts that came home from kindergarten in a paper cup!



and a lot of time just trying to stay cool. I am so ready to turn off the air-conditioning...but that's not going to happen anytime soon!




Oh yeah...there was 1 more thing that kept us all busy..stay tuned for my next post!
