Summer Photo Dump

We have had such a wonderful and crazy-busy Summer this year! I’m happy to share these moments with you.

The girls (who were trying to be helpful) cleaned the TV with wet sponges… so we spent our anniversary getting a new TV. The girls made themselves right at home while they waited!

I got out of the shower one morning and Adelynn had been hard at work with these blankets on the floor and the art on the wall. I had to ask her what it was about. Any guesses?

She made the beach of course!

The Elsas took a break from dancing to smile for me.

Between carpet and everything else going on around our house, we have pretty much been living at Home Depot. They make themselves at home in the carts now. IMG_2480

They were completely bribed when we were in there one night for the hundredth time (that time we were getting materials to build a dining room table! Here they are with their prize.

Speaking of the new carpet… here is our process in pictures. We scraped the popcorn and painted the ceilings since we were clearing everything out – including the carpet. SO glad we did that! Then we pulled it all up and got it out.

We hung out in the basement while they installed the carpet. Here is the new pad…

And the new shag… ta da!

Poor Ava did not even need her bed for her nap after all the excitement.

(I moved her onto the mattress if you were wondering.) 🙂
Right away Adelynn asked for carpet in her doll house. Of course Dave stopped what he was doing to help her out. Her Barbies are living in style!11666183_10206592114940097_1390068678034377334_n

One day I was emptying the dishwasher and left an eye-level cabinet open. I closed it and opened the one next to it and there was my cat, Bella. Staring straight at me. Scared me to death!

Cuddling Bruce before leaving for church is a priority.

I was doing my Bible Study one night. I had turned on the TV and gone in my bedroom. Next thing I know, there are 2 sweet girls cuddled up next to me.IMG_2640IMG_2612

Ava got her pillow and blankie and climbed up on the dining room table to pretend to nap. What a good life 🙂

So proud of every single bug she catches.

Some things never change… like how we always have fun together.

Thinking outside the box. Just because it is raining doesn’t mean you can’t drive the convertible!

VBS – we survived another week!

Having a pool party before the rain came in.

We wrap the girls up in their towels after their baths. We call them “burritos” and so we always nom on them. And they nom on each other. It’s so funny!

Ava came up with this by herself. She runs around with the balloon on her rear and calls herself an “ant”.

Grammy took Adelynn around town on a few different days to do the Where’s Waldo search. She always has to stop and pose along Main street.

They literally played nicely on their own for 3 hours on this day. I had to sneak a picture to see what they were doing. SO SWEET.IMG_4254

She makes everything so fun. She was cleaning one side of the window while I cleaned the other.

I got to spend the weekend at The Craft House. We had such an amazing time in such a gorgeous old home built in 1903.
