I decided to take Rich out to breakfast for his birthday because it was late arrival and early release for the kids which makes for a crazy day--Hayden missed the bus so we had to rush home from breakfast which was a bust because what I recommended Rich order he didn't like and all my topics of conversation were awful but the day did get better and thanks to Rebecca for picking up the ice cream cake which was very yummy and ended the day on a high note.
Here are the kids in the backyard enjoying our pool. Since we didn't end up with a playset or trampoline this summer I picked up a pool at the local Walgreens and I think the kids really enjoyed swimming in it. Mckay asked Maddi to make him a dinosaur --hence the towel wrapped head. He thought it was great and the other kids had a good laugh.
Here are my favorite shoes. The first pair I have worn a ton this summer--I bought them two summers ago and didn't really wear them much until this year --who knew? The second pair are my coach shoes that I got for what I consider a steal --which doesn't rival Angie's but I got $200.00 shoes for $29.00. The third pair I wore this morning after too long of a break from the gym and I hope to be more consistent.
Self portrait--I did shower and even tried to do my hair but the pony tail could not be avoided.
My favorite room.
The Kids playing nicely. It helps to have a non-sibling referee.
Rich working. I think.

Here are some more pictures from the company picnic. Max and Hunter got balloon swords and Mckay wanted a snake. I don't know what it is about bubbles but my children can't seem to get enough of them. It was all we could do to pull Mckay away when it was time to leave.
Here we are at the Microsoft Company picnic. It is always a lot of fun with great food and great activities. Rich, Hayden and Maddison climbed the rock wall. Max attempted it but the harness was too uncomfortable for him to climb with. Hunter competed in an impromptu race with other 6year olds and came in first. He received a blue ribbon for his efforts and was quite pleased.
