Water & Deer & WCG

These pictures are from June at the lake house at Lake Cannonball. William Clark Green, who's is Easton's very favorite singer, was playing in Burnet at an outdoor concert. It was finally a venue where we could bring the kids to watch him perform! So we made a fun weekend out of it at the lake. 
The water was so warm! 

The kids fed the deer...

And ate plenty of marshmallows! 

This kid was so happy to see William Clark Green. He was up front so he could really see what he looked like and sang along to all his favorite songs!

Summer pictures

I realized I had pictures on my phone I hadn't posted yet. So here are some of the things we've been doing! 
We've been golfing as a family a few times this summer. Blake is a great ball spotter and helps me find where I hit my ball. Tim recently got them each a set of US Gold Kids clubs and they love playing with us. Both Blake and Easton can hit some pretty great shots, too!

We've been swimming almost every day this summer and taking swim lessons. Blake will now jump off the side in the deep end and swim back to the wall. It took a long time for her to get the nerve to jump in, but being with all her friends at a swimming birthday party recently did the trick. 
Easton never really loved water and would just cling to me while swimming. After a rocky start with being nervous to go under water, he will now jump from the steps and swim under water to me and then back to the wall. 
Blake and Easton love going to gymnastics class every week. This is from the end of year class where they received medals! Easton has been moved up an age class and Blake will be soon. 
More to come...

Fire truck

We had a surprise fire inspection yesterday by two very kind Lubbock firemen. They were checking our work neighborhood and I happened to be up there with the kids. I think Easton had a little hero worship going on, as he was stunned speechless at first. When they asked if the kids wanted to check out the fire truck, Blake was first to say yes and Easton followed, just smiling and reaching for my hand. 
They got to climb inside, sit in the chairs and look around. Then they asked, or wondered aloud, if they could go on the roof. The fireman said yes!
The kids climbed up the back of the truck and walked all the way to the bucket at the front. It was so cool and they talked about it all day. Easton had the biggest smile all afternoon!

4th of July

We left Thursday to spend the weekend at Lake Cannonball (what Easton calls Lake Buchanan!) The lake is full and the weather was hot, so it was perfect to swim all weekend! 
I didn't take any pictures at all, so obviously I fully enjoyed my time off!

We came back Sunday night and took part in our neighborhood parade today! We didn't even know there was such a thing, but it started in front of our next-door neighbor's so it was hard to miss. We jumped right in! 

The kids were already in their 4th attire, but next time we'll have our bikes decorated like everyone else!

Then we went to the 4th on Broadway celebration in the 100 degree heat! The kids rode ponies, pet animals in the petting zoo, had their faces painted, did crafts and ate a corn dog and funnel cake. It was a fun-filled day!
