July was filled with lots of fun. We participated in the summer reading program and read a lot of books. We made cookie and tried not to eat all the dough.
And were simply silly.
Jon, Sunny, and the girls piled into the car near the end of July and drove out west. We stayed a week in Idaho at the Boone Lodge and had a lot of fun. We went to the Idaho Falls zoo, ate at Big Juds, hiked up to kay falls, went to Yellowstone, had a blast tubing and trying to waterski, and enjoyied the water park.
All family, at the zoo, observing the flamingo chick.
One afternoon at The Lodge, Eliza found a pair of Naomi's shorts and decided to put them on.

Maren will start Preschool at Gingerbread preschool in two days. She is such a big girl and her mom has mixed feelings about the whole thing. Her going to preschool will help to give us a schedule to our week and get us out of the house once in a while (maybe even a little exercise). She is also trying to learn the hard lessons of doing things we should even when we don't want to and not doing things that we shouldn't even if we want to. She is a smart girl and she will get it...eventually.
