What have we been up to?

Yesterday we took a little drive up North to see some relatives and relations (as Pooh would say). The host has built a real working miniature railroad around his property. The engine is about 6 feet long by 2 feet high and the flatbed cars have seats bolted to them so the kids can go for rides. They all had a lot of fun riding around in the hot sun!

Just the little princess after church last week.

Enjoying a ride on the train. I love the reflection of the tracks in her eye!
A romp through the grass on a beautiful summer day.
Other than that we haven't been doing much else. I cleaned out Paige's closet and started on Caden's. How's that for excitement? No news on the house front. Rick is "home" for the month of August. He is actually on reserve (on call) so he'll be in and out. Might be an interesting month! We have the county fair coming up, some exciting events at church, soccer practice starts this week, football gear gets picked up this week, at least two more camping trips, back to school shopping to get done and Caden's birthday in just a few weeks! Isn't August wonderful?!
Oh - on a fun note... We (Caden) found Trace's glasses that have been missing since last spring! Why I didn't think to look on the floor in Caden's closet under at least a foot of clothes I have no idea! Last time they disappeared for a while they were finally found in the Lego bin!
