4th of July

We love our traditions, and now that we're in Kansas City we're starting to make new ones.  We attended the Lenexa 4th of July parade this year.  It was the perfect size parade for little ones.  We were able to secure a spot in the shade, armed with American flags, snacks, water, and smiles!!  The parade lasted about an hour, which was perfect.  We went with our new neighbors who we've really enjoyed spending time with and getting to know.

No fireworks for us this year, 9:30 pm is just too late (for all of us).  We enjoyed the sun by playing in the water most of the afternoon.  Liam and Gavin both enjoyed the sprinkler and pool!!

First Crawl

At the ripe old age of 6 months and 1 week, Liam took his first steps...well crawling steps.  CRAZY!  He was all about getting a hold of Gavin's Mickey's.  As exciting as it is, it's also a little sad - they grow up way too fast.  We hardly remember when Gavin first crawled.

Gavin had his first official sleepover.  In attendance...2 girls!  WHAT?  Just wait, when he's 16 and asking for a girl sleepover I'll tell him he used all those up when he was a toddler.

They had lots of fun, pizza, treats, movies, swimming...and not enough sleep.
Just what you would expect at a sleepover.
 Homemade pizzas
 Not quite sure what was going on here, but Gavin was tackling Layne.  He'll one day realize tackling girls is not the best method to win them over.
 Chilling out after play, play, play!!
Everyone should be in bed asleep at this point, but we did movies instead.

A fun night for everyone; there will more than likely be a lot more of these in our future!!

Arizona Wins!!

The College World Series that is.  University of Arizona, after 26 years they did it.  We were all so excited to watch the games.  We even drove to Omaha for one of the games early in the tournament.  We proudly wore our Arizona gear, way to go Cats!!!
