Summer is here!

And so are the kids! I usually dread this time of year, but I am surprisingly happy to have my kids home. Ironically, they are out playing with friends more than home anyway. It has been a pretty easy start to a hot summer. I do realize it is only the start of week 2, but I am trying to stay positive :)

We had the chance to go up and visit my brother in Pinedale and let the kids play with their cousins. Sadly, James had to work, so I took the kids alone. They were actually great! We had the typical disagreements here and there, but overall it was one of the best trips in the car. I was thrilled to get a chance to take lots of fun pics of my cutie nephew Jacob. He was a doll. They say he cries a lot and can be high maintenance, but all I saw was cute smiles and adorable laughter! Makes me miss when my kids were that young.

Tyler and the gopher Uncle Wells caught (GROSS!)

Lizzieboo and Tyler are best buds!

The crazy bunch pigging out on oreos, chips and whatever other junk they could find.
