July Photo Roundup

For all the photos that had no other place!  

Our Garden has been doing great!

N Step started drinking and driving

I went to my best friend Jes's house.  She has a Newfoundland.  She weights more then me. She's huge, but is the biggest gentle giant.  Sitting she was up to my neck.

Z Step was so crazy in the pool.  He didn't seem to get the fact that it was deep.  He didn't end up wearing any of this.

The pool had a great slide!

Our stuff arrived from Okinawa!  

The boys started driving.  Clearly Z Step is a bad driver by the look on E Step's face

So many toys arrived.  The boys "unpacked"

Mommy and Daddy Step unpacked while drinking a bottle of Okinawian pineapple wine

Z Step started drinking... 

Mommy Step's new running shoes.  Been breaking them in

Mommy's been running with the boys to this playground near our house

Coloring with Mommy

Celebrated our annual Christmas in July with a jello sensory bin!

N Step became a photobomber.  Z Step became a fireman

Daddy Step was away for the week and mommy had a long week.  This wine was much needed

Mommy and Z Step made homemade organic whole wheat "Goldfish" crackers.  We didn't have fish cookie cutters so used these letters.  

Z Step got Ice Cream from the Ice Cream truck!

Neko continued to be a pillow

Uncle Ric and Mommy went to the winery for a tasting
  
Z Step got to play in a fort inside

Our christmas jello sensory bin

He hadn't realized it was edible yet

We had s'mores at camp

Daddy's head shrunk


Found these chairs at a local thrift shop.  They match our table great.  Going to re-finish them

Daddy Step got a random bug

Z Step got to have a cheerio necklace

This arrived from Japan.  There is a story behind it.

Mommy's been organizing like crazy!

Neko continues to drink.  

Daddy and Uncle Ric went to the brewery
