40 years old

Mowing the grass at Grandpa's today was really fun, Rob started off with Paul on his lap, and Olivia and Hannah also took turns helping.
After, we went to the state park and enjoyed the lake; Rob on his sailboat, the beach, pretty hollyhocks growing by the shore, sand and sun...
Someone got all wet.
He found a melting chocolate bar in the van.  He asks for "coco," often.
Chocolate face again.  This time due to a banana chocolate chip muffin.  And I turned 40 over the weekend.  We spend 8 hours at the final swim meet of the summer, both of the girls did a great job in their races...sadly, I forgot the memory card, although I had the camera, so I couldn't take any photos. 
Grammie came with us to pick Hannah up from camp.  Paul wanted to drive her car.

Our teenagers

She's 14 years old.  Saturday morning she won 2 medals in her junior lifeguard competition!  She plans to work next summer as a lifeguard.
Hannah holding Paul, taking an extra nap, because had a fever...cutting in his 2 year molars. 
And we watched Olivia play soccer.  Their team has pink shirts!
Then, yesterday we dropped Hannah off at camp for a week.  Saying goodbye...
 It looks pretty...a lot of green here.

Hot days...

We got some kombucha from Fab Ferments.  This is beet and ginger.  Isn't it a pretty color?  It has been hot...almost one month into summer.  Kombucha is finally something I'm liking, it's taken a while...and now I think it's refreshing in this heat.
 We went to the pool with my sister and her family.
Swimming lesson with Natasha.

Independence day

 These chicks are about a month old.
 You can see that there are 4 that are bigger, and 3 that are small.  They are under our plum tree, which is full of green and a few purple plums, just ripening up!
