June 30-July 6

 We tie-dyed shirts on Saturday and the kids couldn't wait to see how they turned out.  Owen and Emmett are comparing bellies.
 Loving my yarrow in full-bloom!  It starts out the very dark pink and then fades over time so the plant is covered in variegated blooms.
 Owen planning his attack at the splash area at Yanney Park in Kearney (if you happen to find yourself in Kearney it is definitely a fun place to visit). 
 Our first sugar snap pea picking from the garden.  They were wonderful!  Even Josh noticed the difference ( a vegetable is usually a vegetable in his book). ;o)
All the kids in their tie-dyed 4th apparel.  I'm not sure we are all that great at tie-dying--it kind of looks like I rolled them around in bomb pops. But definitely a fun experience that we will repeat again with many more colors.
The sunflowers this year are largely all volunteer (Josh had the audacity to call them weeds, but I made him take it back). ;o)  A few began to open this week and I just love them.
Pre-swim meet pensiveness.
This meet was the one where they qualify for state, and I'm happy to report both girls made it.
Marissa will be swimming a 200 m freestyle and Isabella a 25 m back stroke.  Isabella also has two relays that made it.  We are waiting to hear on any other events.  They took the top two in each event, and then they will compare times for any of the other events, so in the next few days we should know if they have anything else.

LOVE the festive tees, and congrats to the girls! And the yarrow is beautiful.

A pink swim cap--just one more way that Bella looks adorable with freckles!! And I think the bomb-pop shirts (haha! loved that description) are perfect and such a fun idea for making 4th of July shirts.
