Random Summer Pictures

 The HUGE zucchini became a baby.  And later it became part of many meals. 
 Lots of bike riding and playing.  
 And when it's just too hot to be outside we play inside! 
 This little girl is ALL girl.  She loves anything pink and girly. 
Board games have become a fun activity now that Lulu and Levi can play.  Ila likes to join in and try to play. 
 More bike riding....the boys "ride" together.  
 We finally got a seat for Ila and now we all can go together. 
 Silas is acting so much like a toddler, wanting to explore and figure things out.  I love watching him do that.
 And we renewed our zoo pass for the year!!!  We went to the zoo on the day the public schools started back to school.  I love homeschooling and being able to learn and explore with my kids.  Precious time!
 The kids were chirping little birds. 
 Levi's driving his sister through the jungle. 
 Ila follows me around all day everywhere I go.  So at dinnertime I have her at the counter and she plays or helps.  Here she's playing with the inside of a spaghetti squash.

Grammie-Goo Visit

 My mom was able to come for another visit this summer.  My dad was missed very much and we can't wait to see him in a couple weeks!!!  While my mom was here we went to the Boise Saturday market.  Papa sent the kids some fun he always does.  So the kids brought their money to the market and the girls bought flowers.  They were so excited to show Papa what they bought.  Levi has his money in his piggy bank.  
 My mom got to go to church with us Sunday morning. 
 Sunday afternoon we took my mom for a drive around the area and showed her some of our favorite sites and places to go.  

Family Boat Ride

This past July my parents came for a visit.  One of the highlights of the trip was taking them out on our boat.  We went up to Lucky Peak reservoir.  It was HOT and the water was so refreshing. We spent the entire day on the lake.  
Kimmy and Lulu!
Kimmy, Levi, Grammie-goo and Lulu!
Papa jumped into rolled off the boat into the water.  
Lulu and Levi loved swimming with Papa.  They all spent a good amount of time in the water. 
Grammie-goo had an important job!!!
