I can't believe summer is half way gone. There is so much going on around here. I am in no way complaining and love me some fall but please Mother earth S-L-O-W it down.
Fourth of July means a house full of family . There was food and the baseball game. What better way to spend the day , including some knitting and a box seat we were rocking and rolling. It was a first for my step father. We go to watch the fireworks also and I must say it may be my new favorite way to do it . It is one of my favorite holidays especially since ninety percent of our family come to stay for a long weekend. We eat, sleep , joke and miss each other more with each time they leave. Kids were building forts out of air mattresses and tons of reading to each other. Nieces and nephews being their own people and no one judging who is marching to the beat of which drum. Just like a bunch of puzzle pieces on a table that when put together create our family. I love to take in the personalities .
We also go to celebrate O's 1st birthday . This girl is moving right along . Walking, talking , teeth, teeth and more teeth coming in . She is grand-baby number three but not one of them are alike. It is a blessing to watch them grow and see their personalities come out.
Watching these two cousins only a month apart explore their would together is amazing. Already showing they are different personalities but pieces of the puzzle that makes this family .
One of my favorite past times has happened. Not as much as I would like but Maddie (my girl below in the tent) and I will take what we get. Of course living where we do we have several more months of the good weather .
So hope your summer had been fun , relaxing and full of exploring!
Peace and Love.
