We are happy to have a visit from our nieces, Caitlyn and Avery!  They are here for a couple days from Columbus, OH.  It is cute seeing the girls playing together.

Indiana Dunes

We just got back from a couple days at the Indiana Dunes (at Lake Michigan).  It was a much needed bit of family time, and a beautiful place to soak of the sun!  Lily loved the water, and Parker was in love with the sand.  We enjoyed beach time, hiking the dunes, hotel swimming, a dinner out, and even a movie.  So glad we were able to get away!

Kids' Room Makeovers!!

One of my goals this summer was to paint both of the kids' rooms.  I did it!!  The previous owners had flat paint everywhere, and this is not good with kids.  A fresh coat of paint does wonders!

Lily picked purple walls.  We already had pink curtains, so the bed spread she picked tied it together nicely.  It was an interesting project because now Lily has an opinion about what she likes :)

Parker's room was fun because he is young and likes whatever!  We did a baseball room because we already have so much baseball stuff.  I was worried about the gray being too dark, but I love it!

I know...it's been too long!

I can't believe I haven't blogged since April!  No good excuses really.  We have been enjoying a lazy summer-kind of nice with no coaching or summer school or anywhere pressing to be!  I have been painting and do home projects (this will be my next blog, promise).  We have been swimming and really just hanging out.  Here are a few photos over the last couple weeks.

Loving our pool time!

This year, my cousin, her husband, and I decided to put on Vacation Bible School at our church.  It was a lot of fun!


 Just being crazy!

 Always love when Traci is in town!!  We went out with Stephen and Sarah while she was here.  So much fun!

 Lily did a 1 mile fun run with Callie!

 We enjoyed Independence Day in Yorktown for the fireworks with friends!

My sister had a fun block party in Dayton...

 And Lily and Parker's grandma just got the cutest new puppy, Sophie!
