Dog Days

 Summer has been extremely hot this year!  Obviously blogging has not been a major priority lately, but staying cool has.  We have had fun at the "splash-down" park.  Having a pool in our complex has been great!  The kids both took a month's worth of swimming lessons and are now going to give Missy Franklin and Michael Phelps a run for their money.  They actually literally line up at the edge of the pool, slap their chests and backs like little Olympians, and race across the pool.  It is pretty funny.

 Hayes did a week long tee ball camp.  He is great at hitting fielding and hitting, but hitting was his favorite.
 Madison did a cheerleading camp for a week where she learned a cheer, dance, "pyramid building," and "voice projection."  She was already proficient at voice projection, but excelled at the cheering as well.

 Grandpa Bret took us boating a couple of times, and Madison and Hayes both tried the tubes.

Joe did a weight loss competition in Boise starting in January.  He worked out like crazy and did some portion control and lost around 80 lbs.  He ended up taking fifth place, which was really exciting.  We celebrated by hitting a Brazilian grill afterward, he was pretty hungry.
Joe may have lost weight, but the scale has continued to creep up for me.  I am 39 weeks along now and measuring 40.  I am ready to ditch the heartburn and swollen feet.  Baby is coming VERY soon, so we celebrated with a trip to Red Robin and a couple of rounds of miniature golf.

Oh!  And Hayes got glasses.  They make him look like a little genius.  He has an astigmatism which will hopefully correct itself if he wears the glasses for a couple months.
