Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer....

I sure hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July holiday! We had a H-O-T holiday visiting family just outside of Kansas City, Missouri. The weather on the day of our arrival? Sunny with a high of 101 degrees, and 90 percent humidity. Wow! Quite a change from our Seattle summer weather of partly cloudy and 70.

This trip was the first time that all 3 of our kids hung out with all 3 of their cousins. They hit it off and had a great time playing together. Our days were filled with summer fun.

Water balloon fights.

(Well, maybe this activity wasn't Georgia's favorite.)
Picking wildflowers.
Chats with Pa.

Swimming in the pool.

Getting stuck in a frog floatie.
Cooling off and watching a movie.
Making funny faces.
A visit to the American Girl store in Kansas City.
Sharing favorite toys.
A visit to a lovely farm.

Sparklers on the 4th of July.
Most of all, becoming good friends.
 After a few days, it was time to say goodbye and head home. We will miss our family members (and new friends), but I have to say, while looking out the window of my airplane seat while approaching Seattle and having this as my view....

It's good to be home!
