Cousins Come To Visit

In mid-July, my brother and his family came to stay for a few days.  The kids all had a lot of fun together.

Showing cousins the chickens.

One hot evening we hung out down by the pond.  The kids all took turns kayaking.

They had a blast.

Everyone was glad for a popsicle break.

All of the cousins together.

Anthony got to go alone in the kayak for the first time.

Joseph and his little cousin compare popsicles.

Anne and Emily went together.

The girls got to have a "sleepover."

These pictures were the best I could manage to get. :)

Hula hoop time!

Fun to watch all the activity.

Brungardt Family Reunion

Looks like something's going on here.

It's the Brungardt Family Reunion!

There was a big water slide for the kids to play on.

Anne helped her little cousin.

Anthony went crazy.

Cousins had a blast.

Lots of food and fun inside as well.

Bishop Brungardt said Mass late in the afternoon.

Dan and his mom.

Bishop John Brungardt gave the kids a juggling lesson.

In the evening, the family all came out to watch fireworks.

Fourth of July 2015

Okay, so I am 3 months behind, but better late than never, right?

Stopping for a slushy break while shopping for fireworks.

Anthony was allowed to shoot off firecrackers for the first time!

He did not blow anything or anyone up.

Waiting for Daddy to shoot off a parachute.
Joseph got one!

Time for snakes.

On the actual 4th, the boys helped Daddy put up the flag.

The kids and the flag.

More firecrackers.  Guess who got to unravel all those things?

Our dog, Biscuit, was not afraid of fireworks, except for the loudest ones.

Daddy lit the lantern.

There it goes!

Another great 4th of July celebration.
