July FUN!

We met my friend, Susan, and her son at Cupcake Construction in Lawrence for some dessert fun.  It was so great to catch up with a teacher-friend from my days at Riverview Elementary and the kids enjoyed the sugar high!
For each cupcake designed you get to pick the flavor of cupcake, filling, & frosting.  After that, you get to choose from a variety of yummy cupcake toppings.  Yum-o!


LegoLand at Home...
This was Talin's first sort...

Then I can back to see them sorted by color... (he might be my son!)

Garages for his emergency vehicles...

Remi having fun before we headed to the pool!

This was Talin after someone fell off the tube.

Eric & Jaedin's turn...
Eric might like to show off a little!

Eric's brother, Matt, and his fiance, Sara, came to visit so we thought we'd head out on the boat for some fun in the sun.  Fun was definitely had by all!

Family Fun with the T-Bones

We took the kids to watch the Kansas City T-Bones play and scored some great seats!

It turned out to be a great evening for baseball...there was a nice breeze that kept us cool all evening.

We had a table to sit at during the game.  Of course, no game is complete without snacks & drinks!

Our view...cute, huh?

Talin loved the "entertainment".




Remi fell in love with Sizzle and I'm not exaggerating.  Hilarious! She even invited him to come home with us.  New birthday request...her very own Sizzle. 

Such a fun evening!

Glow Run

I ran the Glow Run 5K in Kansas City and beat my personal record!  My chip time was 25:24 and I finished 19th out of 712 women in my age category.  There were 4831 people who ran the Glow Run and I came in 281st.  I was pretty hyped to say the least!  Pretty sure it'll never happen again. :)  Eric and Jaedin came to cheer me on...not sure if it was having them there that sped me up or my empty stomach!

Getting ready to run!

After the race!

Celebrating with dinner post-race!

Smiling with PRIDE!

We've filled our summer with a lot of fun activities but probably the thing we have enjoyed the most is our trips to the library

We go there A LOT
Moments like these....make me smile...BIG!

Summer goodness!

(Side note...Talin looks like he is in pain in his photo above because HE IS.  He had 3 loose teeth and didn't realize it! Needless to say, that was his only bite off the cob.)

Work with DAD

Eric's company, McCownGordon Construction, celebrated Bring Your Child to Work Day on July 20th.  Both Jaedin & Talin got to go enjoy the fun and activities this year!

He's still smiling even though he's thinking "it's WAY too early to be awake"!

Headed to work!

Lots of kids and lots of activities!

Turner kids building.
