Beating the Heat

Nothing says summer around here like swimming in Boulder Creek.  Edgar stayed home with the two youngest boys and I took the older three and three cousins for a lovely, cooling-off time.  I became a spouting whale, as I am prone to do.  Since the Johnsons weren't there, I took the liberty of spouting off all over the place.  The Johnsons don't like my spouting.
To celebrate the 4th of July, Ruben made this American flag out of a piece of paper, a stick, and some tape.  He is dressed as a soldier, if you can't tell.  That hole in his mouth is where he lost a tooth this week.
Ammon is lucky and he knows it (as you can tell from this picture).  Every time Marcos gets a treat for doing a good job with poddy training, Ammon also gets a treat.  He had just enjoyed smearing the treat all over his face when I took this picture.  He makes at least 84 messes every day.
Isn't Omar looking particularly wise and intelligent these days?  He is changing so much all the time.

Such a spectacular aunt and mother you are to all of those cute kids.

I think I come down on the side of the Johnsons with the spouting issue though.

How fun! Ruben looks so patriotic in his outfit and homemade flag. He and Abby would've had fun together. She made a flag that day too.
