Home again and Independence day

Jack was so happy to come home to his Daddy! We didn't expect him to have a beard! It felt so weird kissing him with such a shaggy face!
The Shumway and Jones families came over to help us celebrate the 4th of July!
Boy was it hot here!! The pool is over 75 degrees!
Baby Claire sitting in a floaty all by herself!

The Dad's made some pretty awesome waves!

Sleepy baby Claire

Jack took a break from swimming to do some lawn mowing

Carter loved the fountain!

Ella and Gracee
Then we were off to watch some fireworks!

We got the best spot! I think that we'll go there again next year!

Me and my cowboy/lumberjack looking husband. I think that I'm liking it more and more

It took us a little while to get out of the neighborhood. The kids all had fun standing in the sunroofs!


The next morning Ella lost her top front tooth! She was eating breakfast (toaster waffles) when she bit down on something hard. She spit everything out and there was her tooth!

Although the kids talk about Wisconsin everyday, they were happy to come home too. They liked sleeping in their own beds, seeing their Daddy and playing with all of their toys.
They were being pretty silly

We have a lot going on in the next couple of weeks! Summers not over yet! And Ella starts the second grade at a new school in a couple more weeks!

So long, farewell

Another fun thing about Beaver Dam, they have a free kiddie pool in town! The kids loved it!

Before we knew it, it was our last week in Wisconsin!
Every time we go out there, I think that I'm going to take so many pictures of my kids. There are just so many cute places for pictures! But it never happens. To many other things going on I guess. I did manage to take a couple of Ella one afternoon. She insisted on having her kitty in the pictures with her. She calls it hers since she got to name it, Shadow.

Jack practically lived on the swing! He didn't like it when the light was to bright, he said he needed my glasses. Much better
Poor Jet, he got to tired! Sweet thing

We were having so much fun with the Reeds that I forget to take many pictures!
We ate out a lot and played LOTS of games. Sarah kicked our trash at everything!
Finally Dad just played to try and mess her up, knowing that he would never win.

One afternoon I was able to meet up with my dear friend from high school Emily and her little guy Remi! It was so much fun to catch up and hang out like old times! We'll have to do that again when I go out there again!

Of course we had to go see Eclipse the day it came out! It was so fun to see with my Mom and some of my sisters!

On one of our last days we drove up to Fon Du Lac to a really fun park!

Jack is STILL talking about the train ride! He asks me when we are going to go on it again!

They had a couple of little rides. All from the 1920's!

The park was one of the most beautiful I've ever seen! Talk about photo shoot heaven! I will be going there again next time.. anyone want their shoot there?

We did take a couple of pictures there....

Sweet little Liam!!

Such a happy little man!

We walked across the street to lake Winnebago

They even have a lighthouse

We had to get some ice cream on the way back to the farm

Our last night

Me and baby Liam
Saying goodbye.... so sad.
Not really goodbye, more like until next time!
We love you all and miss you TONS! We can't wait until the next time we'll be able to see you and visit the farm! Thanks Mom and Dad! Love you!
Thanks to all of the Aunts, Uncles, cousin's and friends for making our trip so wonderful!
We love you all and love Wisconsin!
