30. The Teenager

July 30th

Ian turned 13 today. 13! At least he's not too grown up to make silly faces with his cousins (even if he was staring at his cell phone while he did it).

29. Little fish

July 18th

Give the girl goggles and she swims.

28. Bubbles in the backyard

July 11th

27. Independence Day

July 4th

We started out the holiday weekend with some serious yard work. Lucky for us we had A LOT of help spreading the rock in our front and back yards. My grandpa, dad, mom, and the boys all helped us and we were able to get it all down and raked out in a few hours. We (not including me, or my mom, or the boys) started before 5am and we were done before 10.

On the 4th of July, my parents had a BBQ and we lit our nice, safe, legal fireworks in the front yard while the sky all around us was lit up with other people's giant, illegal ones.

26. Toes

July 1st

We all had our toes painted. Maison was happy we had blue polish since it's a boy color.

25. Splits

June 24th

Madeline's last day of Jazz/Hip Hop/Tumble class for the season. Her class was on Fridays at 4, which is apparently not a popular time since there were only 2 other girls in her class. On this day the other 2 didn't show up so she had herself a private lesson.

24. This is (not) candy

June 19th

We disguised Thor's Father's Day present by putting it in a pasta box before we wrapped it, but Madeline wanted to throw him off even more by writing "This is candy" on it too. (It was a video game, of course.)

23. Slurpees and shopping

June 10th

22. San Diego

June 1st- 4th

21. Baseball

May 27th

Madeline and I went with Grandma and Grandpa to eat ball game food and watch the fireworks at the Las Vegas 51's game. Maison and Thor stayed home since we were going to be out so late. Madeline fell and bonked her head. After security and the medics looked her over they gave her a game (or maybe practice?) ball to help her feel better.

20. Cowgirl

May 20th

Madeline's dance recital costume this year is a cute cowgirl outfit and they're dancing to the song "Wild Wild West". We took this picture on our way to class on picture day.

19. Wow, I'm so far behind.

May 10th

Madeline had her last soccer game this week. Grandma and Grandpa were there with Mia, just like they were for nearly every one of her games.

And as of this posting I am 11 weeks behind on my blog posting. What a LOSER!
