Summer Highlights

I decided that since my blog is so far behind I would do a large post on the last part of our summer. We spent the first 2 weeks of July in OKC with my family. It was so nice for my children to get to spend some time with their cousins from Denver. They really love them a lot and ask to see them often. Will Henry and I took a walk each morning with my Mom. My parents live by a lake so we would walk to the Dam and watch the fishermen. He had so much fun, he would want to watch them for hours.
Bella Ruth LOVES horses and couldn't wait for a carriage ride in Bricktown. She sure didn't seem to mind the scorching heat outside.:)

One evening two of our neighbor girls, Emily and Julianne, went with us to the ball park in Bricktown. We rode the trolley and then watched the Red Hawks. Their stadium has a very nice play set for the children to play on as the parents watch the game.

We visited my Nana one afternoon. My children love to go to her house, she is usually at my parents when we are in town because it is much easier for us all to get together. She lives in a small town an hour south of OKC.

We had such a fun 4th of July with my brothers family. Aunt Betsy made the girls darling hair bows.

Just waiting for the fireworks in Bricktown.

Will Henry fell asleep right after I took this picture, he missed all of the fireworks. Maybe next year.

Clark and Bella Ruth being silly.

My sweet Bella Ruth makes some of the funniest faces. Her Daddy did the same thing as a child. One afternoon she was in a silly mood so I decided to capture a few of her faces.

After VBS we had some guests come with us to Kentucky Lake for a long weekend. Two of my neighbors from OKC drove out and brought a friend. The oldest one is starting her Freshman year at OU and younger one is starting her Senior year of high school. We also met up with some good friends while we were on the lake.

Here were our house guests. They had to hurry home for Rush at OU. Congrats Laurel on your Chi-O bid!! We are so proud of you!

The last weekend of our summer break we spent at Chris' Aunt Charlotte's farm. Clark caught a pretty large fish! Thanks Uncle JJ for your help on reeling it in.:)

Will Henry wanted to run straight for the water. I think next year this adventure will be much more relaxing.

The night before school started the neighborhood children were all outside playing. Even Will Henry knew something fun was about to happen.

I hope everyone else had a wonderful summer!!
