More fun with family!

We had a ton of fun while Grammy, Gramps, Evan and Erik were here! But, the boys also got a little work done! Here they are trimming in the windows! I need to post some "after" photos! They look amazing! Thank you to everyone for all of your help!

We were all signed up for the HURL Elkhorn 23K, but I had to sit it out. Dad and Erik still did it and really did great! They had fun and finished strong! Here they are at the starting line.
On your marks... Get set...
Although I wasn't running, Evan and I helped the race director set up, and do anything else that they needed.
Here are the boys after they finished!

It was pretty hot while they were here... so we had some fun playing in the River!
and finding crawdads and other assorted fun stuff!
Evan jumped right in and helped catch crawdads! Then we took them home, cooked them, and he got to try his catch!
Some of the river critters weren't very pretty... actually quite ugly! We think that this was a crane fly larvae.
This picture epitomizes the difference between a little boy and a little girl! Dane thought the crane fly larvae was cool...  Kimber, well you can see how she felt about it! (It was laying harmlessly on a log at this point.)
Erica was super generous and sent her saddle and other horse tack with Uncle Erik. So, Uncle Erik and Gramps made a super cool saddle rack/play horse. This horse pretty much gets ridden daily! :) It is a super easy keeper, though! Thank you Erica, Uncle Erik, and Aunt Lisa for your generosity!
