We have only had 2 weeks of summer and it has already been filled with fun! Here's a recap:

On her last day of school Megan had a party at the park. After that I took her and her friend Madison to the Fun Zone to ride the Merry-Go-Round and have lunch. She was really excited to wake up to a sign that said "You're in Kindergarten now!"

Dylan's class had a pool party at a beautiful home! The kids all had a great time and I got to sit pool side and chat with my friends since we hired a lifeguard.

Our friend Dave came y to install our new entertainment center. He does beautiful work! It is our first "adult" piece of furniture. I hope to have the house done before the kids leave for college!

The day after school got out I did the mud run. My foot still hasn't recovered but it is coming along. I already posted pictures but I wanted to share 2 more. The first is of the trees. As I was driving through the base there was a convoy of tanks with the guys sticking out of the top. They all had machine guns. I thought the kids might think that was cool so I grabbed the camera. As I was about to click the button I realized the men with loaded weapons might be suspicious of someone pointing something shiny at them from a car window. So I quickly dropped the camera on my lap and this is the shot I got. I did, however, get two great shell casings during the run that I held in my bra for the kids. They really liked those.

The second picture is of the lake we had to swim across during the race.

The next day was Father's Day. I don't have any pictures of our day. Actually...I do, but I know my husband well enough to know he would not be happy if I posted them here! The kids made him breakfast and we went to Church. After Church we went to see Kung Fu Panda. Everyone liked it. Especially me because I got to take a nap! Jon's dad wanted to watch golf and my dad was recovering from knee surgery so we didn't have to make any rounds this Father's Day. After the movie we went to lunch (Sushi---ick!). Jon went to work and I had a softball game.

We went to the skate park with some friends. Dylan is getting more daring every day! Here he is in the "pool" It makes my belly ache when he goes in there. I do not want him to be a big kid (or a skateboarder!)

We went to San Diego to visit Jon's sister and her 3 kids. Her youngest is right in between Dylan and Megan age wise. Here they are goofing around in their beautiful pool. We brought Annabelle home with us overnight for a bit of cousin time. They all played so well together. It reminds me of when I was that age and the connection I had to my Cousin Dawn.

Dylan had a bike ride with the Cub Scouts. After the ride there was a family BBQ at Bolsa Chica Beach. Dylan is getting some roasting tips from the Cub Master.

Jon went to his sister's 40th birthday party. It was an 80's theme. He got right in the spirit.

We had a day all about Megan! She was thrilled to be the center of attention all day. She was in two recitals. The yellow was for tap, and the green was for ballet. She did a beautiful job at both!

The kids went to Mariners Church for VBS. They had a lot of friends from heir schools to connect with there.

At the end of the week, there was a Jana Alyra concert. We met up with some other friends to celebrate the ending of an awesome week!

I guess My kids love concerts as much as I do! They both danced and sang non stop for 1 1/2 hours!!!

Somewhere in the mix of all this fun, my in-laws were in town. I have no idea how but I do not have 1 picture of their visit. Grrrr....
All I have to show for it is this. The kids had to sit in the far back of the van to accommodate my in-laws. Somewhere along the line they managed to sneak my camera out of my purse. The result was about 50 pictures similar to these all taken of them, by them. Lesson learned. Their seats are now back up front where they belong!

Oh my goodness, Megan's ballet costume is just gorgeous. You are in trouble when she grows up...and that is going to be sooner than later. Sounds like a fun summer already!

Wow! You guys have had a full summer. Megan is a stunner in that ballet costume - just beautiful. Looking forward to hearing more summer stories!
