|My sister put together a few books for my parents - the one for my dad included all of the 'wooden' things he's made for us over the years and my mom's was an extensive family tree.|
|My mom and dad and her four brothers and their wives!|
|My mom and dad with all of their grandchildren :)|
In addition to camping the kids spent a lot of time outside in the pool. They got really nice tans. I attended a wedding shower for Melanie's sister - Emily. It was a nice afternoon away to celebrate her upcoming nuptials. I didn't get any great pictures, but it was fun.
Our town had a few 'food truck' events that we went to. Basically several food trucks were invited to the downtown area and they had some tables/chairs set up. The kids liked eating and running around afterwards.
The only other thing in July was the starting of swimming lessons. Olivia is naturally a very good swimmer - she's pretty good and catching on pretty quickly. Tony and Amelia are not as 'talented' but I hope that at least they'll be able to get to the edge of the pool and not drown if something were to happen. God forbid!
