More 4th of July

 Just a few Saundra took...

Adam's Birthday

Benihanas for Adam's birthday. First time ever going. We had a great time.  Even Chelsey liked it, which is really saying something.

More Pictures From Don's Phone

 we have so many pictures in front of swimming pools, it's impossible to keep them all straight. I *think this is the meet at Mclincock.  The lane divider was not working and we all spent a lot of time waiting around.  Here's Macie waiting.  But I think that might have been the first meet that she saw all four strokes.
 She loves getting ribbons.  I have no idea what to do with all of their ribbons. I've thought I should make some sort of cool wall art with all of them. Like I could take all them and make like a peacock! But then I remember I am horrible at crafts. And art.
 My delightful Oscee boy.
 This was the night she got 2 pink ribbons. She was so excited because they were pink.  They were 7th place...but they were pink!
 This is from our lake trip with the Martz's.  I was a gimp and could hardly walk, let alone wake board (*try to that is, I haven't successfully gotten up yet, so it seems dishonest to say I wake board. I water board, ie my face smacks into water)  About every 6 months I stub my pinkie toe into the corner of a wall and can't walk for a few days.  You would think I would learn, and wear shoes around the house.
 Oscar fell asleep.  He didn't even mind wearing a life vest.  I think he laughed when I put him in it.  He is a very good natured little boy.
 I did manage to get on the raft once and go for a ride with the girls.  That was a lot of fun.

 I love this picture of Macie getting ready to swim.
 These are from the 4th of July swim meet,

 These are the matching outfits we bought the kids.  such cuties.

 Not sure what happened to Oscar here!
 Pool party at Kay's house.

 Our friends the Goldthorpes are moving, and they had a going away party.  Captain America came.  I'm pretty sure my girls have no clue who Captain America is, but they wanted a picture with him anyway.
 More pictures from Kay's house.

 Chloe getting ready for her race, she is in the pink cap.
 Macie hanging out with Dad at a city meet.  I tried to go, but keeping Oscar from drowning and myself from heat stroke I tapped out after one race.  Luckily Dad convinced Macie to stay and hang out with him so he wasn't too lonely.  I think this is the swim meet she was disqualified, and Macie offered Chloe to give her one of her medals.
 Another swim meet...this was one of there very last ones of the season.
 Jake got home from his mission July 22nd. We met him at the airport.  His little brother died about 5 months into his mission, and he had many miracles happen on his mission after his brother died.

 Awards ceremony for Dobson Dolphins.
 Macie finally passed Bronze 2 at Swim kids.  You can tell she was pretty happy to get another "shiny medal."

 More pictures of the airport.  Look at Chloe and Oscar in the back.

 Macie up at front getting her "Delightful Dobson Dolphin" award.

 That's Coach Evan up front. She loved Evan. He was so nice to her and all the kids.
