We had the 4th of July which we spent with my family.
The kids all at the new splash pad by my moms house! Not the best pic but I love it!
The girls at the parade! We didn't even make it through half of it it was so hot we went home. The kids didn't even want to be there.
Over the 4th of July Briana and Matt were in the musical the Scarlet Pimpernel. I love this musical! I went down for the whole week and did hair for the play. It was a lot of fun!
Then we had the 24th of July which we spent at my Grandma's.
This is the only pic I took of that day. Sophia with her face painted ha ha.
My grandma's town always has a big todo and we always go up for it and have a big bbq.
Then we went to Ely for a craft fair Tyler's sisters and I have been prepping for since Feb. Ely Art's in the Park was a two day event. It was a lot of hard work but I am really happy with our turn out and how well we did. Our booth was very original and super cute! The hardest part was our need of selling and our want of keeping the cute stuff we made ha ha.
Then Joel had his second surgery the 6th of August. I did not take any pictures this time. Joel did amazing. When the doctor came out he said there was quite a bit more damage done inside then he was expecting so they had to go back and fix it. He hated the the IV this time but after they took it out he was completely happy. We got home from the hospital and he was crawling and playing right away. It was amazing! I couldn't believe it. For how well he did last time he did even better this time. That baby is one amazing kid!
4 days after Joel's surgery we moved to California! I will have a nice lengthy post on that next but we are here now and settling in.
In between all this we had parties, family reunions, several hospital visits for Burns and cuts and surgeries (my kids didn't take it easy on me this summer), lots of packing, several car break downs, visits from Tyler, and more packing.
It was a CRAZY summer! Not particularly one I want to repeat but I am glad we got as much in as we did I knew it would be the last chance we got to do a lot of these things and I didn't want to leave anything out!
