What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. ~John Steinbeck

The end of June was busy with camps - Mike and Brian were at Boy Scout camp, and Tanna was at girls camp.  Megan watched five of the grandkids and brought them down for a visit while their parents were gone.  
 Blake and Peter polished their hula-hoop skills.  What is summer without hula-hoops?

 Zack found the sprinkler at the end of the hose.  Great way to cool off.
 Blake was determined to master the hula-hoop.
They stopped long enough to enjoy popsicles.
Walker wore his, with red and blue strips running down his chest.  We all laughed as he bit off pieces of popsicles and cried because it was too cold in his mouth.  
 Abby hoisted herself into the hammock swing.  Way to go! 
Brooke entertained herself while.....
 we played catch,

  and keep away.
It was heart warming to spend time together.  Thanks Mike, Brian, and Tanna for sacrificing your time to bless the lives of youth at camp.  Thank you Megan and Marcie for bringing the grandchildren around.  I LOVED OUR TIME TOGETHER.

Thanks for letting us come. It was way fun. It was nice to not have to do house stuff, and take some time to play with the kids. Thanks for your help entertaining. We always love coming down. Hope to do it again before the summer is over.
