July 2013

We kicked off July like most people by celebrating Independence Day.  We had red, white, and blue themed meals, enjoyed the sun, and ended the day with fireworks.

Spending some time in his sandbox
Even had blue hair for the occasion

Star Ravioli Lunch

We spent the evening with neighbors barbecuing, swimming, and lighting off some fireworks.



So LOUD!!!!

After the fourth we spent a week camping with my family at Ponderosa State Park in McCall (it has its own post here).

When we got back it was our town's Fun Days.  We attended the parade, which half-way through turns wet (cooling off the kids). After a quick snack and some music we went home to rest before returning later that night for fireworks.

The next week Annabelle attended VBS....sadly no pictures, though she had a fantastic week.  Annabelle continued to stay busy attending soccer camp the last week of July.

When not camping, at VBS, or soccer we filled out time enjoying the nice weather and parks in the area.  With picnics packed we visited parks where we ate, played, splashed and enjoyed a shaved ice or two.

Being forced to eat before hitting the park....lunch was not a priority to them

Finally allowed to have some fun

Both were happy to stop for some shaved ice

Before playing some more at the splash pad

and at the playground

Did the same thing all over again at another park.
