Pool Party

After the park, we went with all the cousins to the pool. It was about 90 degrees so we were ready for a cool down!
Ally had a grand time and even went down the water slide with Grandpa. This was so much fun.

Ally's first day at Grandma's

When we went to Texas to drop off Hillary and Phoebe...we just couldn't pass up the chance to bring Allyson home with us. This is Ally's first day with us and it was a full one! First we went and mowed Grandma Lehman's lawn and that means driving a lawn mower thru the center of town, so Ally got to ride in the little trailer. She was like her own parade!
We then went to a park and celebrated Lindsey's birthday. Sarah brought Lindsey home with her from Utah. She turns 11 on wednesday so we had a party with all her cousins.

The boys picked up Alan at the airport and met up with us girls at IKEA.
We all took a break in the office section.
This is truly an amazing store. They even have a restuarant where they serve swedish meatballs and lingonberry juice!
Alan and Phoebe share a moment!

So we went to breakfast while the girls slept. I love my kids they have so much fun together! We walked about 10 miles to find a pancake house. Jake had his slippers on! Pheobe was just glad to be outside!

Blanket Swinging

When the kids were little, for cheap entertainment, Ron and I would swing them in a blanket. They thought it was so much fun. Now a generation later Ron introduces the granchildren to a favorite sport! Check out Sarah's blog for the other kids.
