4th Fun!

I’ve been a little MIA lately, and that’s because we just got back from “vacation” over the past week.  We decided to leave town and head back to our parents’ houses through the 4th of July.  Our boys love being on the farm!  We did so many things and had so much fun, that I feel like I now need a vacation to rest.  This post will be mostly pictures, as they tell the best story.  And let’s face it, we all know you’re itching to see some more little kid cuteness!

The morning after we arrived, I “did” a 5K for my hometown as part of their alumni weekend.  Now I say “did” because it sounds better than “walked.”  Yup, I walked.  But I wanted to be able to chat while walking instead of gasping for air, so I walked.  Someday maybe I’ll up it to jogging……nah, probably not.  I HATE running.  There, now it’s out.

Moving on…

I think that any word you can think of to describe summer also describes our week!

Sand  sorry, washing machine.



Tractors  a.k.a. jungle gyms.



Fishing  so just Daddy went, but the kiddos still got to take a picture with that awesome walleye!



Old-Fashioned Fast Food  hand delivered in awesome classic cars!

Ice Cream  a summer staple.

Playgrounds  they never get sick of them!



Birthdays  this is most definitely a summer word in the Hanson family!



Theme Parks  for kids!



Face Cutouts  with random kid in sunglasses.



Petting Zoo  it’s all fun and games ’till they try and lick ya.



Babe the Ox  okay, probably not the first word to come to mind when you think of summer, but still cute.



Climbing on Kitties  not really summer either, but just look at that face!



Daddy Fun  it’s not ALL about the kids!



Slides  whoa, head’s up, Karli!



Cheesy Family Pictures



Train Rides  choo choo!



Train Ride Selfies  it’s okay when you have cute kids.

Swimming  in freeeeezing water.  The only ones that complained were the adults.



more Sand



we’re talking lots of Sand



Sand  castles.  Sand all day, in every way.  Even Grandpa couldn’t resist the sand.



Summer Love  it’s okay, they’re cousins.



Toads  stick with toads, boys.  Momma can’t handle snakes.



Fireworks  lookin’ so proud!  Future pyromaniac, right there!



Babies  please don’t drop his head, he’s not ours so we can’t break him.  Andrew was slightly obsessed.



Chilaxin’  not for long, always on the move!



Food  preferably with lots of chocolate.  The messier the better.



S’mores and lots of bug spray.


Well hopefully you can tell that we had a really fun week – minus the bugs.  My kids look like they have the measles from all the bug bites, but they don’t seem to care.  All they can talk about is the great time they had.  Eli wants to go back “tomorrow.”

Hope you all had a great 4th!  Happy Birthday, America!  We love you!
