A weekend at the pool

Cathedral cavern state park

We visited cathedral cavern state park this weekend. We've been before but not with Maddi. She was so excited to go and in complete awe the entire time. Drew's favorite part was when the turn all of the lights off at the very end to show you how dark it really is in a cave. I enjoyed the nice 59 degree temperature compared to the outside 91! Such a humbling thing to experience the  beautiful Earth God created for us.

scout camp

I took pictures of the boy scout camp this summer.  Drew isn't in the age group for this camp any more, but I still enjoy volunteering and helping out.  Drew was working on the farm, but Maddi came to help too, and even got to shoot the bow and arrows and play on the water slide with the scouts.

A teenager

My baby is now a teenager. He's handsome and kind, loves music & video games, works hard and keeps me laughing. I love him so much and it's just amazing to watch him grown and learn and blossom into an amazing man.
He got braces the week before his birthday & then celebrated his big day by taking a bunch of his friends to a trampoline park. Oh and he's now taller than me and reminds me every day just to make sure I don't forget. :)

This 4th of July we watched fireworks at the space & rocket center. It rained through most of them so I didn't get many pictures, but we still had fun!

We joined a community pool this summer so the kids have been swimming like fish. M worked really hard to pass the swim test so she didn't have to wear a life jacket in the pool, and this week she finally did it! She swam all the way across the pool without touching the bottom or the sides. Seeing her so proud of herself and her hard work made me so happy for her! (Oh and her front teeth finally came in and she looks adorable & way too grown up)
