Here's a blast of summer photos - we had the busiest week last week. Multiple camps, sports, swimming, outside work so much that it was non stop from event to event. Here's some highlights (although I have no baseball pics, oops but don't worry Preston has 2 games this week).

Summer Mornings

It seems to take us a little while to get going in the mornings. The kids usually get 20 minutes of video games while I do computer stuff. Preston is still in his PJs in his pic and Maren is wearing her clothes from yesterday. Yep, safe to say we are a little relaxed here.

Is it Summer?

It feels like it but that could be the warm temps in the 70s and the lack of rain and the fact that my kids have been out of school for almost 2 wks. We have had a good start living outside everyday, trips to the pool, hiking, playing with friends, fishing, living outside - oh wait did I already mention that we are a warm brown color because you can only apply so much sunscreen in one day.

Here's our traditional Saturday night get together with homemade pizza and ice cream to eat.

Catching Up

I can't believe I'm this bad, I mean I can't even remember the last time I why not start with a summer kick off!

Preston graduated from Preschool today and Maren is officially a sophomore preschooler. I also made it through the day without completely breaking down, notice I said completely. It was a hard day for me because you love seeing them grow and change but hate that pain of losing the past.

Watch for pics and vids.

The Big Birthday Bash

Not only did Preston finally make it to 5 but he he survived the long wait until the party. I think it's safe to say it was a huge success, all the kids had a blast and looked exhausted when it was over.

It was similar to Maren's in that they had an hour to play on all the equipment like bounce houses, in floor tramps, balance beams and foam pits.

They have an instructor from Classic Gym who keeps on eye on the kids and helps them with the equipment which is nice because then I can just watch and take pictures! Once they are done playing we have time for cake and presents.

Preston blew out another set of candles and received some great gifts from his friends!

It was lots of fun for all but I'm glad to be out of the back-to back birthdays for another year!

Evening Birthday Festivities

Normally we just do a small family dinner and cake but Preston wanted to share with all his friends that he is finally 5! He is the last in our little group of friends and has been waiting patiently to hit the milestone!

We baked his cake yesterday afternoon and made a bunch of pizza dough. We had dough for deep dishes and for regular thin crusts. We even made a white sauce to do white pizza's and it was yummy.

The kids played, everyone ate and it was a fun night for him. Next installment of Preston's birthday comes with his friend party on Saturday.
