Catch up...

So, we've had a busy month or two. Family visits galore, birthdays, surprise 60th party for my mom at my house, reunions, and more to come. I am a little ashamed to admit that when something hasn't been going on, I've been just hiding out at home doing as little as possible. This has been a very laid back summer. We've stayed in our hometown the whole summer so far, but hope to do a few little travel outings in August. I can't believe it's going to be August already!

Helping Brad clear out some of our yard....notice their gardening aprons and tools. They were so excited to help out.

There is a local family that rescues animals, Hovatter Zoo, and we visited with my parents and my sister, Heather. The kids loved it. You get to go so close to the animals, and so many of the females had babies -- the monkeys, the lions, and the white tiger was getting ready to have hers. She was restless and pacing like crazy .

I had to snap a picture of the girls eating watermelon on the front porch together. Bethany's hair used to be the same color as Mallory's is right now. They change too fast.

Your yard is so green. It is looking good! How has your summer been with the heat and your house? I hope it has been very comfortable for you! Your mom and dad look great. Tell them I said hello.
