Loving summer!

We absolutely love summer, and it makes me so sad to know that the kids go back to school in about a month (and me too).

Jax earned some football cards for being my helper, and he jumped with excitement when the first card he took out was a Vikings player!

Swimming with friends ...

Summer plays with friends ...




Love these 5!

Reunited with daycare friends (girlfriend) when we stopped by to say hi ...

Playing store ...

Hanging out at ball games ...

Lots of swimming!



Jax found one his besties at the pool ... (this friend is a year old than Jax and doesn't go to the same school, so we hadn't seen him for a while) ...

Swimming at a friend's house ...











I wish time would slow down!!

Zoo

The kids and I made a quick stop at the zoo last week. We definitely haven't made as many trips this summer - it's been so hot, and the kids would rather be swimming.

The new koalas are so cute!





This bear made us laugh ... just stood on it's back two legs staring at all of us. (terrible picture, I know)

Checking out the snow monkeys!

MN Lake - Part 2

BJ and Justin got up early to go bass fishing.

Jayla and I were the only ones awake, so we played a game of Garbage ...

Jax eventually joined in with us ...

Time to hit the beach/water!



















He's back!!! It seems like this snapper has always been in the same spot! Two years ago it got my dad's foot, and my brother-in-law, Josh, caught it by hand!

Josh has some competition now ... Justin caught it by hand!







Jax caught the snapper with his pole!! Eventually the hook ripped out (eek!) ...

Cutest little fisherman!
(I'm still laughing about his tackle box ... he refuses to believe that's what it's called. It's called a fishing box because tackling is what you do in football ... and Jayla thought it was a taco box. Ha!)

Sand castle building!

Silly boys!


Notice the sun setting, and they are still in the water??!!

Jordyn caught a bass ... she made Logan hold it for her.

S'mores before the mosquitoes attacked!




Those 5 kids were on the beach/in the water/on the dock for 12 hours on Saturday. They had so much fun, and I loved watching my kids get to share in a piece of my childhood. I'm so glad we made a last minute decision to go to the lake.

We took off Sunday morning so that Justin could get home to do some work. I think it's safe to say the kids were tired? This was 10 minutes into our drive!
