Parks and more cousin fun

 In the two days we were up there, we just played non stop. We went to several parks. This one Liam and Evelyn got to ride in the bike stroller. They thought it was so cool.
 Evelyn adores slides. She would go down them a zillion times if I let her. Thank goodness Sadee took her down some.

 This game was SO fun. The lights lit up and you had to hit them to earn points. I had never heard of it, but it was so fun, even for adults. And it was fun to do with friends.

 Sliding Evelyn again.

 Making our own Harry Potter wands.

 Crazy kid dinner.
 Hermione and Harry.

 My sister's neighbor is super nice and lets them pick all the raspberries from his patch that they want. Evelyn LOVED this. Every time she would go outside she said "I pick razzies!". Seriously, she was in heaven.

Playing with Cousins Harry Potter/Haunted house version

 So this past week in Idaho we went to play with our cousins. I really love when my kiddos get together with them because they have so much fun and are so creative together. They made a haunted house for me in a closet. Yes, a closet. This was the costumes. Collin only wanted to smile, not do a scary face.

 Smiling face.
 Silly face.
 Going to the cafe in the girls' basement.

 Playing Harry Potter. I think Collin just may end up being Harry for Halloween this year.

This is the coolest little thing ever. It's a little free library. It's like a huge birdhouse people leave books in and you bring one to donate then you can take one out. This one was just down the street from my sister. The boys thought it was great. Me too.

Apricot jam and ice cream

 Evelyn I HELP MOMMY. She helped smash apricots for jam.
 One day a miracle was seen in our house. Cranky Evelyn spent a good 15 minutes all by herself reading books in her room.
 Getting treats and ice cream at Arctic Circle.
 We went because Collin had earned his own free shake from school.

4th of July barbecue and fireworks

 That night we went over to Barnhisels for the barbecue and fireworks. Evelyn LOVED the tramp.
 I love this pic because it reminds me of a pic of Liam similar age with crazy hair and huge grin from trampoline jumping.

 Bomb pops!

 This year it was very abnormal. The boys were PYROMANIACS! They seriously would have lit fireworks all night long. This has never happened to us. I didn't get great pictures because Evelyn still didn't like them so I was inside with her for awhile. But, yeah, the boys thought it was awesome.
