Fourth of July

I started the fruit pizza for them, and then they kind of didn't have the patience to keep with a pattern...

Still turned out lovely.
And none of them liked it.  What??
Then we kind of missed at everything--went to the pool 10 minutes before it closed early for the day and walked over to the fireworks and made it right as it was canceled due to rain. 
Sigh. Sleeping in, though, that was a welcome mid-week break this year.

Summer Hair

They went blond,

so they could go crazy colorful.

Then a few showers and a few trips to the pool later, it faded to a much better muted mess.
Summer hair a tradition here.  This time though, there will be some roots to grow out...

Chicken Fried Steak

Nicholas: Mom, this looks like something that should be photographed!

Ben: Yes, But look at the way mine is stacked.  That looks like something that should be eaten!
I have no idea how we have come this far without attempting this around our house.

Flashback Friday

Never again.
Man it was hot that summer.

The Cat

That she stopped to let me take a picture without darting under a bed, is progress.  She seems to be allowing herself to accept that she lives with us.

Which is a good thing.
Because the girls bought her a sweatshirt that says she is the real boss.

And she has a great disgusted face.
She fits right in, from my point of view.

It's Relative

Having long legs for your body, doesn't mean they are always long enough.

This kept us happy

We were missing daddy, but

we had our moments when we forgot our cares.

Well, they did.  I pretty much wondered what I had done.
