Splish Splash

We are lucky to have some really great neighbors. Every afternoon, after naps, out comes the scooters, trikes, wagons, cars, balls, bubbles, and chalk. The little girls ride up and down the sidewalk swapping vehicles, Anna is usually busy looking for bugs, and Jared is playing with the neighbors dog. We really enjoy living so close to great people. The other day one of our neighbors brought out a sprinkler for the kids. The little ones didn't think much of the cold water being sprayed in their faces, but Jared and Anna had a blast.

At first they didn't know what a sprinkler was. On the east coast, where it rains regularly throughout the year, there hasn't been much exposure to sprinklers, because there is no need, so this was a new experience for them. It was tons of fun. Thanks to our awesome neighbors and their fun sprinklers.
(I love this action shot and Anna's face)

We love You Pick farms and yesterday we discovered a new farm, Larriland Farms, for raspberry picking. We braved the stifling heat and humidity and started loading up our box.

All Audrey wanted to do was hold our loot. This made us all a little nervous when the box would start to tip over.

Audrey spent most of her time munching on raspberries, Anna helped her friend fill his bucket, but Jared was a hard worker and filled over half of ours.

Next time we will have to try their blueberry patch.

Father and Son Camp Out

Our Ward's Father and Son camp out was held at a Ward member's property. The weather was perfect. The afternoon in the 80's and the night cooled down to the 60's. They had fun.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game!

May and June has found our family three days a week at the ball park watching Jared play Baseball. His team, The Blasters, are doing well and having fun. Jared plays Left field, Center field, and Second base. He occasionally gets to pitch, which really makes his day. We just finished the third round in the playoffs today with a come back win in the last inning scoring four runs! Lots of fun, excitement, and cheering. Here are some pictures of us at the ball games.

At bat.
Awesome catch.

The girls play with other siblings at the game or they play on the toys at the park

After the game the coach asked the team why they thought he was so proud of them. The answer of coarse was that they never gave up as a team.
