We only have about 100 acres of wheat to cut but it rained last night so we got to have a Sunday Funday!  After church we went to check out the new park. The girls and I go there nearly every time Tate has school but Tate hadn't seen it yet. He thought it was awesome. It started to rain so we had to leave and get some lunch.  Tate had a little incident at church this morning that involved some nudity. I wanted to crawl into a hole. Hopefully not too many people noticed.  Bottom picture is one my mom took yesterday after Tate and grandpa caught a frog!

All of the kids and I went for a combine ride with Brett today. Audrey hated it and cried the whole time so we made one circle around the field and got out.  Ellie loved it! Tate stayed with Brett and had a good time. He always loves it when he is on the combine but never wants to leave the house to go.  Audrey is working on a molar and has been grumpy the last few days. The weather was overcast this morning so we took advantage of the cooler temperature and played outside all morning.

Summer fun

The kids helped make Brett's ice cream birthday cake this morning. We played outside this afternoon.

Today was a great day!  Since it rained on Friday we still couldn't cut wheat and we got to go fishing this morning with my mom, dad, Chris, Anne and Owen. Brett stayed home with the girls. The fish were really biting and my dad couldn't even keep up with getting them all off of our poles. Tate and Owen enjoyed it for a little bit but then had more fun throwing rocks into the pond. Tate went with Brett this afternoon the try to cut wheat. Since Brett's combine was in the shop they got to hang out and play together in the truck.

Chris, Anne and Owen are visiting this weekend. They took Tate to the pool this afternoon. Tate was so tired by bedtime that he couldn't see to do anything else but cry. Grandpa is planning on taking the boys fishing in the morning and Tate asked if we could pray that they wouldn't catch a shark.

Audrey got her other front tooth so she has 5 teeth and Ellie just got some more on the bottom so she has 8 teeth. They were stinkers this morning and only wanted to run into the parking lot at the park so we went to the library. They had fun but if we go there too often I can tell they will just pull all the books off the shelves. Brett was having combine issues today. Tate is still doing pretty well with no thumb sucking. He will put his thumb into his mouth sometimes but will always pull it right back out since it tastes so bad. Audrey enjoyed the dirt cake that grandma made for dessert.

The girls looked so big today at the park while they were having a snack at the table. It was so hot this morning but we lucked out that the air conditioned gym by the park had an activity going on today. Tate wanted the thumb sucking stuff put on his thumb today. Hopefully it will work and he quits. Brett and I tried it and it tastes so bad. I went to a baby shower this evening and the power went out. It was interesting.
