More summer fun

This summer is going by WAY too fast. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I'm dreading the inevitable...homework, projects, reports, etc... Ugh, just writing that is making me depressed. So changing the subject to funner things:)
We went and picked blueberries in Edom with friends. They were delish. I made 3 batches of yummy blueberry buckle and snacked on the rest frozen. Caleb and Caitlin both loved picking them. Christopher not so much. Caitlin was eating them by the fistful and I will spare you the details of what it did to her bowel movements.:) We then went to Tyler State Park and grilled hot dogs and the kids swam in the lake. That was a big hit.

Happy Birthday Christopher! I have to say we have the best neighbors. They let us use their backyard and swimming pool for his party. How cool is that?

We went to the July 4th parade in our neighborhood where they had games, a dunking booth, snow cone machine and, my favorite, a cotton candy machine:) The kids decorated their bikes and rode in the parade but poor Caitlin couldn't keep up with everyone. Her little legs were peddaling hard. Their was a firetruck that was the 'caboose' of the parade and Caitlin kept looking back in a frantic state fearing that the firetruck was going to run over her. I think they felt sorry for her so they let her ride in the firetruck the rest of the way. She loved it!

Hope you're enjoying your summer as much as we are:)
