Sweet Elizabeth with her catch....
On second thought, maybe not so sweet!

Burrr! The water's cold!

Outside our tents in the back yard....
Camp-out provisions....
One tough dude! ( Joshua agreed to take our mattress to our tent for us - it was quite the load!) Eating popcorn and smores around the campfire.......


Evangeline, Josh and Lucas operating the water balloon launcher! (Can you guess what the target was?)
Ready.......aim.....pull back..........get those cows!
Joshua
That balloon had quite the ride, let me tell you!




This past Wednesday we went to the Wilson's house for a camp-out. To say we had a blast would be an understatement! From the minute we got there to the minute we left, it was non-stop action. Being city gals, the barn was a novelty to us - we spent hours there playing with the animals (brave Elizabeth actually crawled - or I should say fell - into the pig pen and held a pig!), and even played "spies" there at the barn after midnight!

Concert at the Fort....





Sisters..


Every year the SSO (Syracuse symphony Orchestra)
puts on a free concert at a for in Oswego. It was a beautiful evening with great patriotic songs!!

Happy Birthday Silas....

Last Sunday was our cousin's birthday party.


The birthday boy.....

Silas's Birthday cake


Silas with a rope we gave him for his birthday ( for "mountain climbing" we do together). Unfortunately, the whole house (including the pets) will probably suffer tremendously through a LOT of mischief ( Aunt Jen said he can even turn a Cotton ball into mischief!) .

Tea with our piano teacher...


Evangeline, Mrs. Yerton, Elizabeth, and me by our piano.

A few Sundays ago, a Hobe Sound singing group came up to our church. Sat. night they stayed at our house. It was lots of fun.

Sunday at the Wilsons...


Last Sunday we had the privilege of spending the afternoon at the Wilsons. We had a grand time pillow fighting, catching and holding cats from the barn, and just hangin' out. (As we have mentioned before, Lucas and Joshua are like out younger - though definitely bigger - brothers! :)

Sitting on the back porch...


















Lucas with his new friend! :)
