The HUGE news from the weekend was that Anna had an all day tournament on Saturday and their Richfield Rocket team won 1st place!!!  Yee Haw!!! Anna is the second girl from the right!  When she is the batter, her teammates do a cheer called "Pee Wee Power!"  Anna always says, "I'm not small, I'm funsized,"

Rainbow, but not much rain....

I woke up this morning, to the beautiful sight of a rainbow...I know, I know, it's tough to see, but it was there!!!  

Anna and Reagan spent the day at the Washington County Fair....it was HOT...but they didn't even care, because they were together.  They hadn't seen each other all summer!!

The Kiddoes

Even when it's hot out, they can find things to do...... playing stickball in the basement

Playing some cards......

and video gaming, of course.....

and someone (our neighbor) needs to take a break from Longboarding.....he fell off of the board going about 35 mph- good thing he was wearing a helmet....after a trip to the E.R., bloodwork and a CAT scan, he was found to be skinned up, but OK....whew!!!!

John and I went up north last weekend for a little get away without kids.  We left on Friday night and got to our cottage at 7:30 pm.  When we walked in to the house, we noticed that the air conditioning wasn't working and it was over 95 degrees in the house.  Needless to say, we drove back home that same night.  We had a very enjoyable weekend at home, and John even got to be the "Grill Sargeant!"

The Lake

Anna had an opportunity to go "up north" with a friend and spend the weekend at the lake.....as you can see, it was simply gorgeous!!  What a blessing!!  They swam, went boating,  and Anna was happy to do their hair and nails...Her favorite part was that her friend, Molly has 2 sisters and she got to be around lots of girls!!
