Summer vacation- part 2

This summer was cra-azy! I felt like all I did was cook, clean up the kitchen, do laundry, and run around like a lunatic. While of course I miss my two big kids while they are at school, I am enjoying the relative quiet calmness in the house right now. 

What we did this summer, part 2

Asher is into ev-ery-thing! And he is fast. I can't blink, he might have my entire dresser emptied and all the contents in a giant pile on the floor that the other kids are diving and swimming in. Yep. Crazy time at my house. 
 Big boy car seat!
 The fair! My favorite day of the summer! Except now that I am a vegan, I was all emotional in the animal exhibits, more so than in past years. Thank goodness for sunglasses. (more on my new vegan status at another time)
 The big kids rode all the rides. At one point a big bolt flew off one of them while they were riding. NO, I am not kidding. It landed by my feet. I hate those rides. Kids love them. I left Big Tall Hubby to supervise, I went to get more fried pickles. Oh yeah, stress eating is awesome at the fair.
 Baseball. My favorite sport of his so far. He especially loved playing first base.
 Rain. I had to take a picture because it was a rare sight.
 Who needs toys? Boxes work just fine.
 Baking. When boys are going crazy and you don't want to go out and play in the above rain, bake, calms them right down.
 A B52 bomber flew over our house on July 4th. It was huge but this picture doesn't show it. I had to promptly come inside and YouTube "Love Shack" for the kids, they think I am the biggest dork. I mean, how could I resist?
 Naps, we all needed them, but few of us took them. *sigh*
 We took Zoe to see "Wicked" she loved it. She wants to be Galinda, and she has mastered the hair flip and singing "Popular." Oh boy, that girl better be on Broadway someday or she is going to be so bummed.
 Bike riding. Tanner still prefers his tricycle but I loved helping him try this bigger bike.
 See, I told you, laundry and tornado baby. My summer was way funner than yours, wasn't it?
 Reading. Zoe read 75 books this summer! Alas, we didn't win the reading award from the library again this year. :(  We tried I guess that is what matters.
If I can get my pictures uploaded, I might be able to have part 3, I know you will be waiting patiently.

Have a super day.

Can't believe a bolt from the ride flew off and landed on your have got to be joking, right?! I will probably never let my son ride another fair ride after hearing that!

So happy to see you back! Love all the summer update pictures, and your kitchen-way to go!

Happy {way} belated birthday to little Asher. What a little round head of yummyness he is ;)

It was nice catching up with you! I've missed ya. It is difficult to find time to blog when all the kiddos are home, isn't it? I think I blogged 3 times this summer...
Oh well!

Looks like everyone is doing well. Asher's grown so fast...I cannot believe he's one! Goes way too fast....

Keep blogging, please...I like catching up! :)
