Besides the fact that we left our home in mid-July for almost a month to spend at our summer house, we got a lot of pool time and fun in before that!
C & J painted gifts for M and my dad for father's day in the gorgeous sun! It was easy too! Some cheap canvas boards, paint and brushes! They were very excited about it....So much they took their shirts off!!
For Father's Day we went to an antique car show close to home. The boys loved all of the cars, but this one was great since the owner let them sit in it!!!!! A 1963 Austin Cooper!
Once again my parents hosted a 4th of July parade party! (Perks of living on the parade route!) and some of our closest and best est friends came to celebrate the 4th with us. Later, some of them joined us for our annual BBQ and then we headed off to fireworks! Such a great day!
And the boys (4 of them, 2 obviously are NOT mine) had a blast at a park honoring all of the American wars. Although the kids enjoyed the history, the tanks that they could climb on was a way bigger hit. I think I sat on a bench for 2 hours letting them climb!
Those were our fun highlights., besides hitting the pool every day that it was sunny! Sure there were some not so fun moments too...like losing power for 56 hours in June, then again for 36 hours in July. NOT FUN, but grateful for a friend who loaned us her generator saving our groceries and letting me try to cook "generator style"!!!
I have lots to catch up from our summer vacation at the cottage too.....Stay tuned....
