Sweets and Abraham

Wow...what a breakfast or snack.  I have no idea who's this was.  I love when we download pictures  and find all these neat little pictures taken.  

This little star loves to bake and be my helper but don't count him in on eating any of it.

This is our rice sensory bin.  All the kids love it.  We had to get new rice this year for it because one of the children got water in there It was a nasty moldy mess.

Olivia snapped these of these
just want to bottle him up and keep him this age.  I love when they are running around and returning the love just like they receive it.  We are truly blessed.  

First task of the 13 completed by this new thirteen year old.
Almost done with the second task.

I can't believe August is right around the corner. 
 Hope you all are enjoying your summer!

Dadz Kamp

The yearly Dadz Kamp was a hit like usual this year. Every year Dave takes the kids camping with just him. He does it to give me a break and to spend time with the kids. I think this was their 9th year and for the past 7 years they have gone to Green Lake Campground.  It's one of our favorite private campgrounds and the kids vote to go there every year for Dadz Kamp.

This year they had a beautiful campsite near the campground's pond.

They swim a lot. Over the years Dave has taught all the kids how to swim at Dadz Kamp. This year was Gabe's turn. He had a blast.

Lots of mini-golf too. Its FREE at the campground so they play 3 or 4 times a day

They eat lots of ice cream too!

Special thanks to the owners and workers at the campground. The kids love going there because everyone is so nice. They are a wonderful family and it is a wonderful campground.

coast guard

We went to Sturgeon May to get a free tour of the Coast Guard boats which is only offered once a year.  Can we all say awesome!  It was seriously hot outside but it didn't matter all the kids were loving it.  Odin was in heaven.  It was a big surprise for him.  He has wanted to join the coast guard for many years now and this only made his dream more exciting.  He started working on the physical requirements already....

Thank you for all you do!
Have a great Friday!

This 13 year old of ours is ridiculously organized.  It's kind of fun to just go in his room and just leave things on the floor or move things out of place. 

Seriously...can we be any more blessed with this cute little star!

We saw this when we were rummaging. This totally cracks me up. I loved it! 

Thank you for blessing us again with gift cards.  They are a true gift especially with all this financial crap going on.  
Thank you so much!

These weeks have been flying by and we're really not doing much but hanging out with lots of friends.  It's so nice. Lots of play dates, reading, tv watching and eating ice cream.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
