Blizzard Beach & Typhoon Lagoon

A few weeks ago, we tried our summer passes for Disney out at their two water parks. Honestly, it was totally fun! And Disney doesn't disappoint, with the themes of both parks being so different, and so catchy. I personally liked Blizzard Beach the most...

...since all the photo opps had skis and sleds in sand...

...and seeing snowmen when the temps were 95* just made it all worthwhile!

Typhoon Lagoon is also really awesome...

...since you never know who you're gonna run into!! (Peej was too shy to get in the pic.)

My sis and her man are coming out to try the two water parks for themselves, so more pics to come!

These were taken a few weeks ago before AND after Camden's appointment to get braces! She has a bit of an underbite, and the doctor said she'd have the braces on for about a year. She will then have to have them when all of her permanent teeth come in, say, in junior high. I just can't tell you how much older she looks (and ACTS!) with braces. She's growing up too fast!


Patiently posing for me...

Not so patient anymore, and Palmer is checking her out...

After! And what a sweet pic of the two of them. Love it!!

Dadgum Squirrel!

We have a bit of an open plot in the back corner of our backyard, so this year we decided to plant some tomatoes and peppers. It's been great to go out and check the growth pattern of these little plants, and the kids are so excited to come and tell me what needs to be picked.

Nice bell peppers...oh, and our jalapenos have been off the hook!!!

Everything was going well until one day I saw a squirrel with a tennis ball in the tree.

Wait a minute...that dadgum squirrel is eating my tomato!!!

Here he is trying to get away from me as I was creeping closer and closer to get a pic. Pesky little thing!!!

Happy 4th o' July!

We were at the beach for the Fourth! A friend let us stay at their place, and the first two pics were taken just a block from where we stayed. Beautiful. Then we hung out with some friends at their condo on the beach. The kids had fun getting their hair striped with some USA colors. It was a terrific weekend. Thank you Jesus for our country!
