Sometimes Krew stays in his jammies until 4:00 in the afternoon. Sometimes he wants me to take pictures of him when I'm trying to take pictures of my friend's newborn baby. And sometimes I do take a picture of him and sometimes it looks like this:

A few weeks ago was library morning at the fair. All the kids who participated in the reading program who read more than 8 hours got a free pass to the fair, and the library puts on a bunch of activities there for the kids. This is the first summer that we went, and we had a great time!

Not too far from where we live, there is a small town that claims to be where hamburgers were invented. (I wonder how many little towns claim the same thing...) Anyway, every summer they have a hamburger festival and a hamburger parade. We went to the parade the first summer we moved here, and we decided it was time to check it out again. We met some friends there and enjoyed the perfect summer weather and the abundance of free candy!

The twins did three weeks of summer school this year. While some kids have to take "summer school" because they struggled during the school year, most kids here get to take fun (free!) classes during the summer. We signed the boys up for a writing class and martial arts. When the writing class was canceled a few weeks before it was supposed to start, they were instead enrolled in Fun With Fairy Tales. It was also supposed to be a writing class. It was not. It was kinda a waste of time, but the boys didn't complain (except for when they learned that they were going to have to watch Tangled at the end of the class. Heaven forbid they watch a movie with a princess in it. Sheesh!)
Overall they were really happy that they chose to do summer school, and they really liked their martial arts class. On the last day, all the parents were invited to come and see what they had learned.
Way to go boys! I'm so proud of you!
You should definitely not try to pick a fight with these two any time soon!
Last week, we met some friends at the zoo! Krew hadn't been to the zoo since before he turned one, and I just knew that he was going to love it! And he did!
So, Krew and I have been reading this book at night called, "Looking for a Moose." It's the book he requests most nights before bed. Because of that book, I think it is safe to say that a moose is his favorite animal. So, when he saw this real life moose at the zoo, he could not believe it, wanted to stay and watch it much longer than any of the other kids were interested, and hasn't stopped talking about it since.

Kade and Ky love to swim! They would do it every day if they could. Unfortunately, that's not possible, and other than one crazy hot week, it's been a fairly cool summer, which leaves few chances to hit the pool. However, one Saturday in July, they went to a swimming birthday party in the morning, and we all went to a pool party with a few people Bart knows from work, in the evening. They both told me several times that it was the "best day ever!"
These pictures were taken with an iPhone with a cool underwater case (that does not belong to us!). It's fun to see what my kids look like under water!
On the way home, we stopped off at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Krew likes their cow.
