Longing...

...to play! The boys went out to play last week and Christian came running in the house and told me to grab the camera. I did and this is what I saw. The boys, even the dog, were hanging on the fence talking with the neighbor kids. Too cute!

Well, we really haven't been up to a whole lot lately, which is my excuse for not blogging recently...but somehow, we've actually been quite busy! We have spent quite a few days at the pool trying to keep ourselves cool in the yucky 100 degree weather! Here are just a few pictures of some of the things we have been doing lately! Enjoy!

Last weekend we went to the Nebraskaland Days parade and rodeo up in North Platte. We arrived late to the parade and managed to slip Carson in next to a group of girls so he could see the parade. They were so nice to him and were great at making sure he got to get some candy too! Because we were late, there was NOWHERE for us to sit and watch the parade up close. People are crazy here during parades. They arrive HOURS early and use ropes and stakes to mark their "place" on the street...crazy I tell you! But, we had fun anyways!

Carson wanted to build a fort the other day and it was so much fun to watch them play together in it. Travis is at the stage now where he wants to do everything his older brother is! Carson is so good to let him play...most of the time!

Look at that farmer's tan!! We've spent a good amount of time at the pool this summer already...as you can tell! Last night I was getting Travis ready for his bath when I realized how much of a farmer's tan he has! I think he just really wants to look like his dad who has a GREAT farmer's tan!

That pic of your kids and the neighbor kids is very cute, you should enter it in some photo contest. Looks like you're having a great time.

Looks like you are having a fun summer! We are starting to get some of that really hot weather now, and playing in the water sounds really good--as long as no one sees me in my swimming suit. :) You have such an adorable family. It is fun to have two boys together so they can play.
