I love making memories with my kids. One thing that I know they will always remember is the mattress swing at Grandma’s cabin. We’ve played on it most every year. Here are a few times I have caught it with my camera (don’t mind the old photos.)
It’s crazy how fast these kids change!
This summer is going way too fast! We have been able to enjoy some good family time. Here are some things we’ve done together so far.
*Hiked up to see the Mt. Timpangos cave.
We have been wanting to do this the last summer or two, but this year we finally got it done. The kids were really tired by the time we got to the top, but once in the cave they forgot about being tired. When we were three turns away from making it to the bottom again, Tyson fell on the asphalt trail and got a huge goose egg on his forehead. Luckily, we were done hiking and not just starting. The kids said that all the hiking was worth it to go inside the cave. It was a good workout too! Most of us felt a little sore the next day.
*Dutch oven cooking in the backyard with family.
Brian loves too cook. It was fun for him to make us a yummy dinner. I wish we had more time to do this more often. Cali, Bryan, and their girls are always great company! We had a good laugh when we noticed Kyler trying to hard to eat his corn on the cob with no teeth! Cali brought the fruit pizza for dessert, very yummy (as you can tell by the picture!)
*Played with glow sticks and fireworks.
We had to go find some fireworks in the sky this year so I could attempt to take some pictures. I had my camera on my tripod and used a remote. It was a little tricky, but I learned a lot and got a few good pictures too. Tyson slept through all fireworks in the sky and the night before we did some in the street and he kept going back to ride his bike. Guess he wasn’t to interested in the fireworks (minus the sparklers!)
What a fun time of year. Busy, but fun. I’m looking forward to several more fun things with my family before the summer is done.
Another cute baby is on the way. This anxious mom is hoping for it to be sooner rather than later.
B and M, she will be here before you know it. I can’t wait to meet her!
