Wow! Summer is sure going by fast! I feel like we are busier now than we were when the boys were in school. We're having a great time! Simon really enjoys having the boys around, and I fear what them being back in school brings for him and I. Here are some pictures from June. I have more, and hope to find some time to get more posts up.
We did a Kid's Fishing Day at Bass Pro ponds on Lucas and Caleb's birthday. We do this year every and the boys always have a great time. It was rainy and chilly this year, but we still had fun.

Colton's first catch.
We've managed to get tons of park time in. Simon loves being outdoors. He no longer will sit still on the blanket though, so I am sure our afternoons just lazying around at the park will soon be put on hold.

Love this picture.
Ethan going for it also.
We've been to White Water twice. The boys have such a blast there and Simon loves being in the water splashing around.
Ethan still managed to enjoy the smaller slides.
We've also been to Stockton Lake to spend the day while Grandma and Grandpa were camping. It was a fun day of fishing, swimming, and boating. And eating. There are always plenty of snacks. The day wasn't miserably hot, but it could have been cooler.

Willy heading in to untangle a large fish for the boys to see. Too bad it got away.
Simon's first boat ride.
Simon wanting in the water sooo bad.

Well, I can't believe summer is already half over. It makes me sad to think about it. I've thoroughly enjoyed having my boys home, though I know when August arrives I'll be ready for them to head back to school. But the thought right now is tough. Ethan is going into Kindergarten and Colton is a second grader. When did they get so big?
