Cazenovia Park Fountains

Aunt Sarah and I took the kids to Cazenovia Park for them to play in the fountains and have a picnic. As you can see, they had lots of fun!

Cornhole

We finally got our own cornhole set, and I took the kids out in the driveway to show 'em how it's done!

Rebekah was, shall we say, less interested:

Fantasy Island

Sunday, the whole family got together to spend the day at Fantasy Island. It was a long, tiring, fun day for everyone!

Pipestem

Our camera disappeared for a little while there, but it has been found, so here at last are some pictures from our camping trip to Pipestem State Park in West Virginia.

The primitive sites at Pipestem were lacking in shade, to be sure, but they had plenty of space:

Here are the girls adjusting to our site & playing some bocce:

Here's Abby, enjoying a bottle:

And here's the family shot:

That's most of the pictures we took in Pipestem. It's a beautiful park, but it's a little old for our girls (and it rained a lot), so we didn't end up doing as much as we would have liked. Maybe we'll go back in ten years or so and get some better pictures!

More Sisterly Love

This is how we found Bethany and Rebekah one recent morning:

We've really gotta just get them sleeping in the same room.

Fishing

We recently took the girls fishing for the first time, thanks to our friends the Beckwiths.

Even Lisa and I got into the act!

(I caught a surprising amount of grief for this fact on Facebook, but yes, the three fish I caught were my first)

And here's Mr. Shaun showing his girls and ours how to remove the hook so we could throw the fish back...

... and showing Bethany how to hold the fish for a picture:

And here's all four beautiful little girls, after they'd all had just about enough fishing:

It's a Zoo Out There

Aunt Sarah and I took the kids to the Buffalo Zoo recently, which is always a good time!

Jersey Shore Vacation, Part 2

We spent one entire day in New Jersey at Six Flags Great Adventure. Here are the three older kids, all sunscreened-up and ready to go:

Jersey Shore Vacation, Part 1

I'm really late posting these, so I'll just get to it: we spent July 17th through the 24th in New Jersey with Lisa's family, and despite our girls not being big fans of the ocean, we all had a great time!

Bethany: Do you know how I say "butt"? Bum-butt. Bum. Butt.
