I really am not that great of a photographer, but digital cameras these days are incredible! I loved these lily pads in the frog pond and thought I'd take a picture....after all, with digital "film" what did I have to lose? But this photo turned out great! I love the way you can see the ripples in the water, as well as the reflection of the clouds. Thanks for indulging me!
The kids were all lined up here taking a quick break from climbing on the GIANT acorns. Yes, that would have been a GREAT photo op, but I waited too long and then I got this wonderful shot--complete with the very festive, outdoorsy trash can. Nice.
Oh, the amazement of water. Especially water coming from a pump...at your command. The kids loved playing here and worked for nearly an hour trying to get the entire pool at the end totally filled up with water. For those of you really scritinizing the photo, the small child behind Grayson did not attack....at least to my knowledge.
Parker and Halle encouraging the water to flow down the waterways to fill the bucket.
Parker did have to get firm with a few kids that CLEARLY did NOT get the memo on the filling-the-bucket plan. Several attempted to thwart the said plans and pull the drain! But thanks to the persistence of the Harris children, the day was saved and the bucket did, indeed, get filled!
A great time was had by all!
Resting on the GIANT roots before calling it a day.

Needless to say, deep dish was a hit.
Our sweet Halle is not that fond of pizza, but she LOVES "bu-sketti." She likes us to leave the noodles long so she can eat them one at a time!

I've got to say, for now, the weather is nothing short of AWESOME! I'm trying not to think about the cold months to come! BUT! I can't remember the last time we could enjoy a picnic OUTSIDE in Dallas in July. The kids and I enjoyed a nice picnic lunch in our own backyard. It was a fun adventure!
Another picnic shot! In the background you can see our "soccer field."

The kids are enjoying the parade with our neighbors. Kyle is here in the middle. (He's our new babysitter, too. But don't worry Megan, Lexi and Bekah. The kids still ask for you! Especially Halle!) Jack is to the right of Kyle, and Brianna is on the end.
Daddy and Halle enjoying the parade! And wow! What patriotic outfits! :)
