A Zipline Adventure

While we were in Branson we decided to go Zip lining.  The kids all got to go, but the boys had to be latched on to an adult. On the last run they let them go alone. Here are a few pictures they took.
The kids LOVED it and want to do it again!! They were all so brave!

A Super Hero Birthday!

Rhett chose to have a Super Hero Party with a fun water slide at our house this year.
 I looked online at all the awesome cakes and almost talked myself into learning how to do fondant to make his cake this year.  ( haven't been doing them the last few years). 
I decided against it (for this year anyway) and went with Super Hero Cupcakes.
 We thought it turned out pretty cute!!

 Here is the slide we rented.  The kids had a blast!

 He got this Razorbacks hat from a friend and has been wearing it a lot since. Oh my!
 The party was a success! Everyone had a great time!
After everyone left, Brent and the kids decided to get some more use out of the slide before they came to pick it up.

......and one last present. Rhett has been begging for us to get him a "late" birthday present. He REALLY wants Disney Infinity for the Wii. It's a video game that isn't being released until Aug. 18.  We ordered it for him and wrapped up the note telling him it was on it's way:)

 Happy Birthday to our SEVEN year old!

Red, White, and Blue

I realize it's August, it's never too late to be patriotic, right? :)

This year on the third we went to a cookout at the home of some friends. The kids had a great time playing in the water and doing fireworks.

 On the morning of the Fourth, we experienced our first neighborhood bike parade. It was pretty simple. The kids decorated their bikes, met at the park, and rode around the neighborhood. They really enjoyed it though and got to go a back to the park for watermelon afterward.

We went to the Country Club that night for a fireworks show, then called it a night!
