The End of Summer

I can't believe that summer is already over and that Dylan and Mickell are heading back to school. We had a fun summer swimming, jumping on the tramp, going to the park, riding bikes, and just enjoying being outside. Ty has especially grown to love being outside. If he even hears the slightest sound of a door being opened, he drops whatever he is doing and runs for the door. I've enjoyed having the kids around and just relaxing and doing whatever we want. I really enjoy seeing my kids have fun and be happy. I will miss them while they are off to school.

Here are some of our favorite activites for the summer

Play time at the Park!

Swimming & playing in the backyard
The Dinosaur Park Museum
We had a lot of fun being able to share this
day with Grandma Barney.

Dylan played Tball for the first time
His team name was the West Point Green Falcons

Dylan and Mickell had a blast at swimming lessons! They both love to jump into the water (as long as their teachers would catch them of course)

One of our family's favorite activites is the Clinton carnival. I'm not sure what the kids like more: going on all of the rides or having dad play games to win them prizes. David is just glad that he finally has a couple partners to ride the ferris wheel with him since mom is a big chicken!

Happy Birthday Tyce!

We just celebrated Ty's first birthday and I can't believe that a whole year has already gone by. He had such a great day. He couldn't figure out why we kept singing a funny song to him all day long (happy birthday to you), but he did love all the attention. His favorite present of the day was his balloon which he pulled around with him all day. He was quite excited when we gave him his own cake. At first he grabbed it, but then quickly dropped it not really knowing what to do. He got so messy and really enjoyed getting hosed off in the sink afterwards! What a fun day for all of us. We all love him so much!
