50th anniversary

Jeff's aunt and uncle celebrated their 50th anniversary down in Colorado Springs. We were invited to help them celebrate. Their kids recreated the wedding ceremony and rewrote their wedding vows to the tune of Dr. Seuss. What a remarkable family!

Day of Irresponsibility

Jeff needed a break for a day and so I asked his best buddies Jason and Jon to accompany him on a day of irresponsibility. You know, doing all the things you aren't supposed to do in life (i.e. running with scissors, eating then swimming, etc...) Here are some photos from their day (See if you can guess what they did that was irresponsible by the pictures taken.  At the same time, AT and I took the boys to Bear Creek Lake Park where we paddleboarded, swam, and then went and had Dairy Queen- plus Will's first Blizzard!

Fourth of July and other events

The Thurmonds joined us for the Fourth of July. We celebrated with a neighborhood parade, a BBQ and relaxing outside thanks to Emma playing with Adam and Evan.

The Holman's Visit

Our dear friends James, Lisa, Dani and Paige came to visit for about a week. Needless to say we lived the commune lifestyle for a week: swimming, eating, playing games, etc...

Smores for everyone
Jackson celebrated his birthday early by going paintballing with Jeff and a couple of buddies- You wouldn't believe the welts! We loaded the boys up with junk food i.e. slurpees, beef jerky, can cheese, crackers, pringles, corn nuts, you name it. Then they came back for burgers and brats and smores.
