So, the kids have pretty much been going NON-STOP for over a week now. We've slowed down now that the weekend is over, but we've definitely tired them out!
Last Sunday we headed to the Anoka County Fair to watch the Demo Derby, see some animals, and eat junk food.

After the fair we headed to the Grandparent's house to wear off some cotton candy induced energy.

We've had many pool days because it has been so warm and humid out. I'm not quite sure why she puts the bucket on her head, but if there is a bucket around, it is usually on her head.

Thea, Rob, and Matt came into town. We got to take Matt's senior photos, so Cade got into full photographer mode practicing on his sister...

On the walk to take photos, Eve had enough of being Cade's model, she picked up a stick and began chasing him.

We even got to go to the ZOO with Aunt Gail! They loved the animals, but the ice cream was the BEST part!

The next day was Andrew's work picnic. The kids had a blast goofing around, eating, going in the bouncy castle and dumping water on people's heads...(I'm so sorry, but everyone egged Cade on and I just couldn't stop him. Thank goodness he's cute!)

Then, the NEXT day, my somehow relative (I'm not good with genealogy) Chris came into town and it was uncle Jame's birthday. Time to party again! Of course the kids had a blast playing and eating.

Needless to say, they have slept very well this last week. They must think I am terribly boring so far this week!
