What have we been up to?

We have been too busy having fun to post on the blog!  Last week we made a trip to the Quad Cities with Micah who had a business trip.  We were looking forward to hanging out at the pool (hence the trip to the Dollar Tree for pool supplies).  Levi thought that getting ready for the pool was way more fun the the pool itself where he screamed like he was on fire!

Next it was off to the Family Museum and the John Deere Pavilion.  We had to show Levi all of the cool things that are made at John Deere.  We also had dinner with our friends the Schilbs and a visit with the Hernandez family.  A haircut for Naomi, eating at Chick-Fil-A, and a "pizza party" in the hotel with dad rounded out the "becation".

On the way back from the Quad Cities we picked up Nana and Papa Barham and the airport.  They came for a long weekend and we were able to show them the lake house, and do some serious garage sale shopping to outfit the house.  We also visited the Farmers Market and the dog track since the weather was so nice.  It was a fun time!

Isaiah and Naomi had their AWANA awards night and recieved their awards for saying all of their verses for the year!  Naomi had a rough time so this is the best picture we could get.

Some pics from the lake house which is coming along fast.  We can't wait to move in and invite you over!  Yes, YOU!  We are hoping that it will be a place for fun and relaxing times with our friends and family.  (The whole thing is not ours, its a duplex.)

Steeles, you of course know my passion for lakes and lake living.....I'm excited to see another family looking forward to many memories created during 'weekends at the lake.' I hope to check your place out sometime when we get back....speaking of which...I don't think you have ever joined us up north in MN for a weekend either!
