We tried to cram in as much as we could before school started back!

 Bike ride! Willie is really getting the hang of it!

These guys were so nice and took the boys for a ride in the old fashioned fire truck!
 We celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary!
 We went to a waterpark in Frankfort and it was a HUGE hit! We will be back next summer for sure!
 Playing in the rain
We went on an adventure downtown...rented a bike, explored and went to the Big Four Bridge.
 Lakeside fun!
These two have really started playing well together...playing Ninja Turtles! 
 Back to school haircuts

July Noteables

Willie loves to stay up late on days he takes a nap and does this face begging to stay up "just one more time" before he goes to bed.  How could I say no to this face?!

 Pool date with buddies
 The boys finished their summer reading challenges at the public library.
 Neighborhood fun with the boys
 Took Annie to the dr after she was PITIFUL for a couple of days with a high fever.  Naturally as soon as we got into the exam room, she was perky and fun and fine!
 HTH and I went to a festival to visit a friend of mine from college who was in town for it and had a blast together!  He loved everyone dressed up and wanted a pic with "George Washington" whom he was thrilled to spot.  I went along with the idea that George had lost an arm at some point.  And he got picked to wrestle in front of the crowd!  He was thrilled!
 Triple bike ride through the park near our house.  We took a wrong turn and ended up going several more miles than I had planned but my legs got a good workout, HTH was a trooper and I had loaded the trailer with snacks so those two were happy. ;)
 We went creek walking and exploring.

 Annie got new shoes which made her summer.  She is obsessed with shoes.  I mean, she LOVES them.  If you take your shoes off near her, she'll be wearing them! 
 Harrison's drive to be just like his Daddy is still going strong!
 Zoo day!
 We woke up and Annie looked like a teenager.
 They inherited my love of all things Christmas and were playing Santa and Hulk Santa. 
 O'Dea family day at the lake!

Swim Team

Harrison was asked by a classmate from school if he wanted to join the swim team for the summer.  He is usually up for new things so he wanted to give it a shot.  He had never swam the length of the pool and didn't know what freestyle even was, but he did his best and had a great season.  We were really proud of him for trying something new and sticking with it!  Go HTH!

Ready for his first meet!
He was really nervous at his first meet, and wanted me to walk the length of the pool while he swam.  He looked over to find me 100 times, but made it to the end! :)
With one of his swim buddies who he goes to school with
 Warm ups!
 Pic with Momma :)

Swim meets are LONG, but two of H's biggest cheerleaders managed to keep themselves happy and busy.  ;)
