Poor Blog

Poor, sweet, neglected blog.
It seems the more I have to blog about, the less time I have to blog :(

So. Where were we . . .
Oh yes.

We got home from camping, and I set to work on 4,000 loads of laundry.

But before we headed out for camping, we had a lot going on.

Fourth of July Celebrations:

We spent the evening at home with our own fireworks display,
but earlier that day Jeremy and I snuck away to Estacada for the Timber Festival.

It was so much fun!

We watched all sorts of timber games.
My favorite was the climbers:


And headed home in time for a BBQ and fireworks of our own:


Mostly we've just enjoyed the outdoors.

We don't get an abundance of sunshine throughout the year, so we try to soak it up as much as we can when it finally makes its appearance.

One of our favorite ways to enjoy Summer?



Smores02W This pic cracks me up!! 
Poor Sierra is so careful to toast her marshmallow just so.  
But this one caught fire, and . . . total sadness. 
All was lost ;)

A couple of days later, we attended a bridal shower for my soon-to-be niece.




For the most part it was a lovely afternoon full of good friends, food, and celebration.

Miss Tay was a HANDFUL, but otherwise, it was perfect.

And finally . . .


Our Family Reunion Camp Out is one of our most looked forward to outings all year.

 Now, deep breath.
Birthday parties, daytrips, family visits, playdates, a WEDDING, and some other BIG EXCITING NEWS are all to come in the next several weeks  . . .

BIG EXCITING NEWS? Are you pregnant again?

What fun pics. It looks like you've had a great summer so far. I can't believe how big the girls are getting. They are all so beautiful, as usual. I am sad there wasn't a pic of that cat. LOL!

Holy canoly - you guys have been busy! Looks like a lot of fun stuff though, so that makes it a bit easier to handle!

I'm loving your summer. Well, aside from the 4,000 loads of laundry. {Just remember in a few years, they will do it for you!} I love the photos you've shared....congrats on the upcoming wedding and your baby.
Well, I just assumed....geeze, look at your husband!!!! LOL. I almost got pregnant reading this post. :)
Ok, I just LOL'ed at my own comment.

You have the sweetest family, Liz--immediate and extended. I always love seeing pictures of what y'all do together.

Laughing about the burnt marshmallow. My boys set them on fire just to see the flame and get to blow it out :).

OK, after our last email a while back I'm thinking your big news is not pregnant, but on the other hand, I'm like--it has to be what this news is! I'll be on pins and needles waiting to find out!!!!

Hugs, Liz!!
