Summer Randoms

How Brody does summer lunch.
This just makes me giggle.

Liam 'steamrolling' his brothers and cousins.

Teagan was sweet to think about me and made me a Lego flower.  Such a good boy.

Mom and Larry's birthdays are only a day apart, so we celebrated them together.  I made a German chocolate cake with a chocolatey twist.  The layers were made with chocolate cake and brownies.  Mmmmm.  I also made a yummy chocolate butter cream frosting and my first attempt at making the coconut pecan frosting.  I thought it turned out yummy.  I also added some toasted coconuts and pecans and mini chocolate chips to the favorite part of the cake. 

This girl used to pose for every picture taken.

It's getting harder to capture a still picture of her.

She thinks she's so funny.

I guess that'll work.

This week we had a couple bad crashes.  Teagan accidentally dropped Liam on his face on a tree trunk.  He bit through the front of his lip, had a bloody nose, tore the fleshy part above his top two teeth, and  scraped up his chin.  We even had to pick pieces of bark out of his lip.  The next day, we were at the city pool and Kamryn was going to go down the slide, but changed her mind and started heading down the stairs.  She ended up falling down the stairs and face planted on the concrete.  I thought her neck/back would have been hurt from the way she landed...but apparently she is very flexible.  She had a big red goose egg on her forehead, scraped upper lip and nose, bloody nose, swollen nose, and scraped up fingers.  Teagan also crashed on his bike this week.  No cuts, but several bruises.  Hopefully Brody can steer clear of injuries.  Although, a couple days ago, Kamryn pushed him into the city pool without his floaties on and the lifeguard had to jump in after him.  He was ok, but Kamryn was in big trouble. *sigh*  Just a couple weeks of summer left.

We've been doing an outdoor movie night every Friday evening in town.  It's been really fun and the kids look forward to it each week.

This was the crowd last night.  It's hard to see, but I bet we had 50 or so people.

Liam...ready for the show to begin.
