Weekend Wrap Up

We went to a festival last weekend. You wouldn't know it from the looks on their faces but the boys were really excited to go on this ride.


It was really hard to get a good shot of them on this one.

It was a festival to celebrate the Parks and Recreation centers. It was held at a big park with tons of vendors, three stages with bands and other performers, booths of merchandise and arts/crafts. We thought we'd be there for an hour or so.
This picture was taken about 5 hours after that:
In case you can't tell by the lighting - it was nighttime. Almost an hour past their bedtime. But, there were fireworks to be seen and that last batch of tickets to be spent. They had a great time.
The next day was spent in our backyard playing with water and climbing trees (and I played with my camera).

I love this picture of Dean. He looks so grown up.

Dean sticks out his tongue when he's hard at work. He had just looked up when I took this.

Doesn't Jack resemble Peter Pan?

Jack still loves climbing the peach tree and can get pretty high now. I try not to watch when he goes too high.

This is Kate. She is waiting for Jack to throw the ball. She will not take her eyes off him until that ball flies.

And when it flies, she catches it almost every single time.

This is what she does when she's ready for a break. She lays down by the shed with her toy in front of her. She is still a sweet, smart dog and we are continually amazed at our good fortune.

This is just one peach-laden branch on our peach tree. We are going to be swimming in peaches in just a few weeks. I'm collecting all recipes for cobblers, crumbles, jams, and pies so if you have one that's fabulous, send it my way.

In other news, the boys will not be performing in High School Musical. They were so miserably unhappy at rehearsal that we finally decided that it's just not their thing. So, no future actors in our midst.

We are going to a hot air balloon festival with the Sullivans this weekend and then Tom's cousin visits from Pennsylvania next weekend so June is really busy for us.

We find out on Friday if the boys got into the elementary school that we're hoping for. Fingers crossed please.
