Just a few of the fun things happening around here -
Naomi is practicing sitting up.
Elmo's excited about Michael learning how to sit on the potty.
The other day Michael was trying to get me to come in the kitchen and get him a snack. I wasn't responding as quickly as he liked, so he climbed on the counter, got the empty paper towel tube down and used it as a megaphone to call me.
Summer turned fourteen the last weekend in June. Her grandparents as well as Stan's Aunt Geneva and cousin Mark were here. We had a ton of fun.
We went to the beach late Friday afternoon. The pictures in this post are complements of Mark and his camera. Thanks Mark!

Mark took a few pictures as the sun was setting because he said it is nice light. It is really pretty, but hard to keep your eyes open.
Summer was trying to get Mark back for taking pictures with the camera in her cell phone.
We wanted to get a fire pit at the beach and make s'mores for her birthday cake, but they were all taken, so we lit some charcoal in an old wok in the backyard when we got home. Notice the shadows in the sky behind Heather and Gwen. The s'mores were delicious.
Mark had some fun taking pictures in the dusky evening light.
Here's Rachel with a smoldering stick.
And here she is with a mini flashlight.
Last, but far from least, here's the birthday girl times three, with the flashlight.
