Lot's more to catch up on...

Uncle Randy Comes to Visit
Andy's mom's brother and his wife came for a little visit. It was so much fun. We had dinner and then played with the kids and sat around and talked. There was never a dull moment and there never is when we are together with the Kimball's. It was so fun. The kids loved him. He is famous for his Donald Duck impersonations and it was sure a hit with my kids. We had a really good time and wish we lived closer to all the family so we could have more get together's like this!

Bennett and Baseball
This summer Bennett played baseball. He really liked it although I think he thought he would be a pro right from the start. He had a fun season. His team were pretty much all Rookies so it was good for them to all be at the very early learning stage. It was sure a fin activity for the summer.
We are so lucky to have some amazing parks here in O town. Maybe that is why we pay literally a fortune in property taxes, but that is neither here nor there, back to the point, and we get great use out of these parks. The kids just love going and have such a fun time. Maddox thinks he is a big boy trying to do everything the others do and they all have no fear other than the swings. For some reason they are all a little scared of the swings and we are working on that.

The Zoo
We have one of the best Zoo's in America. No really, we do and it is FREE which makes it all the better. Having Fridays off which is still such a phenomenon to me, has been fun this summer because we have been able to do a lot of fun things with the kiddos. We went to the children's petting zoo and even rode the train which was a BIG hit with the kids.

My Mom's Birthday
In may was my mom's birthday. We went to their house for the celebration. A little BBQ and cake. My kids are really into the Happy Birthday song right now and they really enjoyed singing it and blowing out the candles even if they weren't theirs to blow out! The also especially loved the cake and cupcakes with ice cream!
