The Boys are 8!!!! Eight is great!

We celebrated with a pizza dinner and a movie (the Secret Life of Pets).  We've had a lot of hot weather which means a lot of swimming!  We celebrated Aunt Sharon's birthday too!

Camping at Devil's Lake WI

This year for our annual camp trip to Devil's Lake Steve rented a pop up so we could see how we like it.  It was a lot of fun and different for sure.  It had air conditioning so I can't really complaining about "glamping" it for the week.  Since it was the week of the boys' birthday, we hit Noah's Ark in the Dells and that was a blast (and exhausting!).

Cub Scout Day Camp

The boys enjoyed Cub Scout Day Camp again this year... while our council did not make it easy, we enjoyed it all the same.  An adult or parent was required everyday unless you had a pack rep (which we did not since the pack was going the week we were camping), I had a great team of family and friends who chaperoned the boys for us.  It was a hot week but everybody held up pretty good.  The boys got to do archery, BB guns, sling shots, water rockets, obstacle courses, pedal cars, camp cooking and other stuff.  It's good for them and they are exhausted by the end of the week!

Overnight Camp

The boys went to their first overnight camp this year!  It was a mini camp so it was only 3 nights and 4 days.  Evan was pretty happy but Sean asked us to never leave him again.... Poor thing!  I think it was good for him but he would most likely disagree.

Happy 4th Fishies!

We went to the Shedd for the 4th of July.  We had to get out of the house... Now that the kids are older, they have the patience to watch the fish!  And now that Gretchen has fish, she's more interested too!
