how's it goin'?

Summer is in full swing and we are having lot's of fun! I'm really enjoying summer this year. Last year I was cursing summer and pretty much hating it....hmmm...maybe it was the 8th and 9th month of pregnancy. So here we are, 2011, and it's a new story. I really think summer is one of my favorite seasons right now! Playing outside, swimming, popsicles, bubbles, races, sunblock, fireworks, snowcones, riding bikes, family get-togethers, running through sprinklers, fresh produce, baseball games, camping, late bed times, sleeping in....and the list goes on!

Most of these pictures are from the 4th of July. Better late than never, as always!

Bennett did it! He ran his first 5K. I love this little determined kid! He did so well. It took him 37 minutes (not bad for a 5 year old). I had the great privilege and enjoyment of running with him. He is already making goals for next year!

Coy and Mylie cheered him on from the stroller!

Here's his little red face afterward! He always get the reddest face when he exercises or gets hot! I think he inherited it from his uncle, Kristofor.

My niece Brielle smashed it, winning first place in her age group and running a 26 minute time. She's only 11! She's got a bright running future ahead of her, I think!

Later on we went swimming at my Aunt and Uncle's house. It is always so much fun!!!

This is Coy pretty much everytime you try to change his diaper or dress him. He just tries to get away. Not fun. But cute.

As if running a 5K wasn't enough that morning, Bennett jumped off the diving board then swam to the side to do it again 131 times. Yes, he counted.

Then Aunt Cheryl made snowcones for everyone! Yum!

And this picture just because these two are cute.

And one of Coy swinging with popsicle down his chin.

I've been wondering how Bennett did on the 5k. That's awesome!
