Slip ‘n Slide

August 18th, 2008 by matt

What a better way to cool off on a hot August day than with water in the back yard?  Ben and Grace are enjoying their last couple of weeks before school resumes.  They played in the kiddie pool and on the slip ‘n slide for hours on Sunday.

What fun to be a kid!

Grace’s Birthday Party

August 18th, 2008 by matt

Grace and her friends Madison, Lucy, Sophia and Grace went to a horse farm for Grace’s birthday party.  The girls got to lead ponies and horses and ride a horse, too.  It was a beautiful day and all the girls had a good time.  Grace enjoyed sharing with me which one of the ponies was the softest to the touch and she was proud she got to lead the horse all by herself.  She said the horse kept sniffing her, which tickled a lot..

Weekend entertainment in Bloomer, WI

August 4th, 2008 by sarah

The kids and I were at the in-law’s this past weekend, and among other things we did was go to a “pull”…as in a tractor and truck pull.  This is a big deal in this neck of the woods.  We were underprepared, as the kids did not have sound defening headphones – I just had to cover Max’s ears with my hands.  Charlie’s big complaint about the pull was the lack of Leine’s beer, it was all Bud products.

I had the camera and was able to get a couple more action shots of the boys – Ben, Gabe and Max, trying to entertain one another.

Ozaukee County Fair

August 1st, 2008 by matt

We ventured down to the Ozaukee County Fair in Cedarburg with our friends Andy and Amy.  Our main target was the beer battered fried cheese curds.  Delicious.  We also checked out the animals, especially the horses.  Here you can see the kids enjoying some ice cream before it was time to head home.

Outdoor Concert

August 1st, 2008 by matt

We attended an outdoor concert on our church lawn.  They had brats to eat and an inflatable castle for the kids, not to mention the good music.  The band was a local group called As Morning Breaks.  Its was a lot of fun, even Max enjoyed it!

Until it was bedtime, anyway.
