July in photos

We've been making the most of the summer, which leaves little time for computer stuff.  I wish we could slow it down just a little - I'm really not ready for the school year that is less than a month away now.

Grandma and Grandpa M visited at the beginning of the month and then my parents were here for the 4th of July.  We saw the parade and the kids played in the pool.  Can't get enough of M4's little suit.

Papa had to paint the front of the house and got a lot of good advice and help from our dads.
We shared a bottle of wine that we got at our wedding while my parents were here.  Hilarious photo of us blending into the wall after a hot day (and painting for Papa.)
The house looks good with its new paint (and trim color)!

Last week Papa had a conference in Minneapolis and we all stayed at my parents.  The kids and I fit in some fun activities while Papa was working and then we stayed with Grandma and Grandpa M for the weekend.
MN Zoo

M4 was entranced by the aquariums.

Lake Harriet
M4 fell asleep in the car for most of our little adventures.  It made the days easier and he was a cheerful guy when he woke up!

He start cruising around the furniture while at Grandma and Grandpa B's and then was excited to try the walker at Grandma and Grandpa M's!  He even managed to climb up the stairs.  I think most of the kids have first figured out stairs at Grandma and Grandpa M's house!

The kids were excited to cheer him on!
Como Zoo
Sleeping at the zoo.
The Como zoo has an orangutang, born at this zoo, that is just 3 days younger than M2.  We've always enjoyed seeing him grow.

Every summer the kids slip 'n slide and play in the pool in Grandma and Grandpa M's yard.  M3 was really into it this summer and needed to share with Grandma and Grandpa B, when we saw them on the way out of town, how she slipped and then slid over and over.

M4 enjoyed some He-Man toys.
