Silver Lake

This weekend we decided to head up and enjoy the mountains with the Crooks. We picked up KFC drove to Silver Lake and had a picnic. Since when did KFC get so expensive???? Not very good food for the price, no wonder we haven't been there for a long time! Next time we will be getting Cafe Rio and it will be cheaper! Then we hiked around the lake.

After that we drove to Guardsman Pass. Camree did not want to be in the picture because she was afraid she was going to fall off the edge! Ha, she is such a chicken!

We ended the night with snow cones doesn't get any better than that!

24th of July

This year the 24th of July was on a Sunday so we celebrated it on Monday. We met some of the fam at Black Bear Diner for breakfast and then went to GG's and Great Pa's for a BBQ and fireworks. Kyson couldn't get enough of the fireworks this year.
Camree on the other hand was such a chicken I could barley get her to stand here for the picture because she was afraid the fireworks were going to get her.

Usually we head over to Butlerville Days to see the firework show but it was raining this year so we decided to see how well we could see them from Grandma and Grandpa's front yard. It was kind of nice we were able to have the kids in their pj's ready to leave when the fireworks were over.
Luckily the rain just sprinkled during the firework show and we were able to see them perfectly from the front yard!

Father and Kids Camp Out

This weekend was the father and kids camp out. My kids have been so excited for it they have been counting down the days! Rob drove up with a couple of friends and they stopped and got dinner on the way.

In the morning after breakfast they hiked to Donut Falls.

I am so glad my kids have such a good Daddy! They had so much fun and can't wait for next year.

Swimming Lessons

This year we ended up having the kids take lessons from my Mom's neighbor. We got to pick the time and everyone that was in the class, it was awesome! Kyson's lessons were first. They could all swim so they worked on their technique and diving.
Camree played in the little pool with Drae while she waited for her turn.
Little P just chilled in her car seat.
The two boys with their girlfriends! It was only the four of them in their class.

At the end of their lessons they got to play on the slide and jump off the diving board.

They also got to hang out in the hot tub while Camree had her lessons.
Then it was Camree's turn.

It was only Camree and Janie in their class.

By the end of lessons Camree was able to do a front and back float, grab a ring at the bottom of the pool in 4 ft. of water, and most importantly swim!!!!
Both kids did so good this year. Camree learned to swim and Kyson improved his swimming and also learned to dive. Tyler was an awesome teacher and the kids loved him. I hope he teaches again next year.
