August began with a little visitor in our backyard. I just happened to look out the window one morning when something caught my eye. The kids and I watched him for awhile trying to decide what it was. Tatum finally suggested a groundhog. I had to look it up online, but she appeared to be right! He went over under the shed and came back out a few times. I assumed he was living there but we haven't seen him since that day.
We met up with our good friends the Leighs at Old MacDonald's Farm.
Emry hit the 10 month mark.
Watching the kids jump around.
Declan can be a pretty good helper sometimes.
This picture cracks me up. Tatum and I are making the exact same face.
Fun at Palisades on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
The kids participated in their first tractor pull. I was excited for them to try it but it was pretty poorly run. Oh well.
Declan had an extra chore of cleaning the basement as a punishment one day. Brennan went down to see how well he did and came back to show me this picture. Cleaning like a man already. ;) I mean, yes all the kitchen toys are picked up but there is nothing CLEAN about that. It gave us a good laugh.
Emry making a monkey sound.
The kids loving having the missionaries over for dinner and I love watching them pretending to be missionaries for the next few days.
Emry hates the hot potato game. I thought I had a better video of it than this but this is all I could find. For awhile there she would whimper and cry if we just said "hot potato here we go".
