Jake, Jack, and Josh: The three J's! These guys have so much fun and they play together so well.
Jake ready to run through the sprinkler. Watching the kids playing brought back so many memories, living in our swimsuits, covered in grass and weber water, laying on the sun warmed driveway until our suits dried and we could start all over again.
The kids called this the "hot tub". It is a low spot on the sidewalk where the water pooled, and it was the favorite place to sit and splash.
Thanks Aunt Tracie, Lunch and Water Fun at your house was huge hit!

Aunt Caite and Jacob decided on a French menu of Pain au Chocolat, Parisian Hot Chocolate, French-cut green beans, and Chicken Oh-La-La. But first they all had to get into the proper French spirit.
"Can't you tell I am Fr-anch from sis expression of boredom I 'ave perfected?" (Jake spent the next two days doing his very best Inspector Clouseau voice...)
Mademoiselle Genevieve couldn't look bored to save her life, so we opt to try for stylish and fashionable...

Oh my goodness, this second week of summer has been even busier than the first! I had somewhere to be every single night this week.
On Monday we went up to Brian's parents to say hi to the Mississippi cousins who are visiting for the next two months. The kids were so excited, starting at breakfast they asked every 5 minutes if it was time to go yet. "Not until Daddy gets home!" I love that all the kids just jumped back into playing and having fun even though it has been almost a year since the last time we saw them.
On Tuesday we did some cleaning, (not that you could tell by Wednesday...) went swimming at Grandpa's, and then Caite and I went to a baby shower for a cousin.
On Wednesday we went to the library, and that night was our friend Adelynne's first birthday party. It was a fun night spent with Dinee and Tay and both of their families. My kids picked out a ball for her present and were so excited to give it to her!
On Thursday we did some more cleaning (and again you couldn't tell by later that evening). Then I went to my knitting night. Caite came which always makes it more fun for me. We were listening to everyone else talking about a bakery where they make the best cookies, and looked at each other and said, "Great, now I am craving cookies." So we ran and got some and then came back and finished knitting.
On Friday I gave up on cleaning and just played with my kids. Caite came over in the evening to babysit while Brian and I went to my cousin Sarah's "30th again" birthday party. We had a great night just hanging out and playing board games and eating Canadian fish. The kids had even more fun cooking a French meal with Aunt Caite, but that is a post all on it own...
(Hmmm, this post is starting to remind me of A Very Hungry Caterpillar...)
And then it was Saturday! The first thing that happens each and every Saturday when Evie gets up is that she realizes that her Daddy doesn't have to go to work for that day and she gets soooo excited! We had decided that we were going to have a family fun day for Father's Day, so we got up, got ready and took Daddy out to breakfast. Then we went and saw Toy Story 3. It was a fun movie and even Lila watched most of it. When we got out of the movie they were having a Chalk Art Festival at the Gateway.
