Last month, one of our college friends tied the knot in Leavenworth. Mike rowed with Jonathan on the crew team, so many of the other rowing buddies were there. It was a lot of fun to catch up with everyone, although having three little ones in tow made it somewhat difficult to visit!
We decided to make a weekend trip out of it and rent a cabin with Jonathan’s old roommate, Jim, and his family. The kids were really good, and had so much fun together playing in the woods. On Sunday we strolled around downtown Leavenworth and enjoyed a yummy Bavarian lunch.
It was a great weekend, and we couldn’t be happier for the newlyweds, Mike and Meridith.

At the end of June we flew to Texas for a visit. It was hot, hot hot while we were there, so we spent a lot of time in the pool. It was amazing to see how far Avery and Kieron have come at swimming. Avery can now get around the pool quite well by himself. He loved snorkeling, picking up dive sticks off the pool floor, and jumping in. Kieron is a fearless little two-year-old, and must be watched at all times! He never tired of jumping in, being dunked, and even attempting to swim underwater. It was great to see how into it he was, but also a little scary!
As usual, the cousins had a blast playing together. We had a couple of sleepovers, lots of pool play, and Grammy took Avery, Nicole, and Andrew to see Madagascar 3 at the theatre. There was even a trip to Lego Land. Here are some pictures from our trip:
