July Summer Fun

We had a lot of fun at Draper Days this year! Megan's mother-in-law, Susan Stewart, painted these kiddos faces. Don't they look pleased as punch? (Starting with Hallie on the left and going around the circle clockwise - Hallie, Kolton, Jonah, Abby, Nathan, Micah, Joshua)
Abby became a "rainbow puppy"!
 Joshua was delighted with his results as "Batman"
 Hallie was all smiles from the time she jumped up on the chair to the finish and beyond! She is a "Pink Kitty"!
Nathan was so excited and had to stop Susan's mother all throughout this process to check out her work in the mirror! She definitely satisfied this enchanted little guy! He is "Spiderman"
 Kolton was the first to start off our fun, face painting adventure. He is "Spiderman"
Micah was so careful to hold still! He, too, was "Spiderman" We are surrounded by Super Heros!
We couldn't leave our little Jonah out! His Grandma Susan painted a "spider on him" I couldn't believe he just sat there with a smile on his face and let her! Amazing!

The kids spent the afternoon playing in the water with water balloons. They had so much fun! Then, came the most brilliant idea! Let's get Daddy when he gets home, so we filled a cooler with water balloons and they sat outside for about 45 minutes waiting for Daddy to arrive. Boy was he surprised! Good thing Daddy is such a great sport. They were thrilled with the outcome!

We spend one morning at Kolton's horseback riding lessons! He was so happy to show us all he has learned. You couldn't wipe that smile off his face! We were all amazed at how well he did!
After the lesson, Kolton helps take care of the horse. He squirted it off with water and helped feed it as well as take off his bridle.

Lucky for us, we all got to chip in and help out!

Nathan enjoyed brushing this horse. Actually, the horse looks as though he is enjoying it too!
 Hallie surprised us all. She is usually very timid around animals but for some reason these great, big horses did not intimidate her and she jumped right in and brushed them as well as fed them. Wow! Imagine that!

The barn was full of adventures too! These helmets are so cool!

 If you don't want to jump on a horse, this is the next best thing!

Jesse amused by the his siblings!

We love to spend time at duck ponds! One of our favorite spots is Glen Park! (I'll post some pictures later of some of our experiences here this month, including what happens when kids get to confident on a large rock by the pond!)
