Where Did the Summer Go?

I didn't get around to blogging very much this summer.  We were just too busy having fun!  The album below is our July trip to MN.  Tons of fun with so many family and friends.  By the time we got home and unpacked and settled in, July was pretty much over!

By the time August came around, we just tried to squeeze in as many fun activities as we could.  Highlights included:

Zadie and Ezra officially "play together" all the time.  (Which sometimes includes wrestling and biting!)
Benton County Fair - checked out tractors and 4-H barns with Zeke's friend Brennon
Ezra held this rabbit for 3 minutes without either one of them moving a centimeter!

Backyard Swimming in the little pool and storage tubs

Overnight getaway to Lake Wedington State Park just outside of Fayetteville (awesome little cabin for about $75 per night!)

Tom's first day of grad school at the U of A-  Graduation May 2013!!!

Also, we did the Downtown Rogers Frisco Festival (Zeke and Tom took a train ride, and Zeke rode the ferris wheel for the first time!),  We completed our Whole 30 Health Challenge  (lost some inches, and maybe some sanity trying to prepare all those sugar-free, wheat-free, dairy-free meals!!!), and generally had a lot of family fun!  

Summer!  Ja Mon!
