The boys are both getting to be great swimmers. They had lessons earlier in the summer and now we are enjoying lazy days at the local pool. They love to race one another and take turns jumping in the water from the side. They can jump for hours, especially if I take pictures of them.

May The Fourth Be With You

Our town has a big 4th of July celebration, including a hot air balloon launch. This year there was a Darth Vader balloon so there were storm troopers and bounty hunters in town, some even came from Canada to participate. That is some serious dedication to the dark side.
