When the girls get hot and tired after being outside, we craft. When Steph is over, she takes charge!

The girls had a great (and very hot) time running a lemonade stand today. Parents, grandparents and some cool neighbors made it quite the success. Oh, and we found a use for the sno-cone maker at the stand today.
Stacy and Nick were awesome and helped the girls make all the preparations. YAY, summer!

We love going to the park with friends! We went not long before my surgery with Karyn and Andrea. The big girls loved the swings and Eliza loved the slide.
Elina loved Sara, and Sara loved Elina. I swear they could pass as sisters they look so similar. Aren't they cute?! I loved chatting with my girlfriends and watching them be wonderful Mommies. Andrea wrote a better post about the day that you can read HERE.

One of the best parts of summer is taking trips up to the cabin. We all have our favorite parts. Sara's favorite seems to be everything, but mostly the zipline.
Eliza's favorite is the swing. Yep, she loved it so much that it lulled her to sleep.

This was the BBQ 4th of July. We figured if we were having this many BBQs, we ought to make the hot dogs tastier. So, we picked up some J Dawgs sauce and I made the world's hugest pasta salad.
It started on Sunday evening with a BBQ at Christy's. Then on Monday afternoon we had Jason's family's annual party in the park. As usual, it was hot and lots of fun.
On the night of the 4th, Stacy organized a street party. There was lots of food, great conversation, piles of kids, TONS of fireworks (including many of the newly legalized aerial ones) and great friends. I hope this becomes an annual tradition.
