Sometimes when we go places, we don't have our camera with us and Reed caught some fun pictures this summer and I wanted to make sure they got on the blog. This one is from the 4th of July Picnic. Our friend Kenny put one of the cones that Brooklyn had been playing with and kept putting on her head but, it would fall off. So, Kenny pulled her pig tails through the holes on the cone. Too cute! It was a fun 4th of July breakfast with tug-o-wars, games and good food.
When we went back to a family reunion this summer, we went to Grandma and Grandpa Tenney's home before we headed back to Kansas. We took the rubberbands out of her hair the next morning and had to take a pic of her lovely hair-do. Love you Baby Brooklyn!
Isaac participated in the Raingutter Regada. He had a great time building his boat with his Dad. They painted it blue and Isaac even made a guy out of paper(so it wouldn't weigh down the boat) to sit and drive the boat. It was awesome!
Isaac catching his fish at Mirror Lake at our Millet Family Reunion this summer! Isaac caught his fish first, then Abbie and Kaden was the last to catch his fish that afternoon! They were SO excited to each catch a fish!
Brooklyn ready to go fishing!
My dad brought his canoe and he took all of the grandkids for rides. Abbie took her fishing pole with us on the ride and she caught a fish while canoeing! She was so excited and Grandpa Millett helped her use the net to get her fish in the boat. So fun!
Brooklyn going for her first canoe ride!
Abbie had quite the technique for fishing! It was a little like dancing! She loves fishing and even has a pink shirt that says, "I may be a girl but, I fish better than a boy!" She loves fishing! The kids got big kid fishing poles for Christmas last year and this was their first time using them. Reed loves this since, he spent a ton less time untangling lines and the kids really caught fish.
Isaac with his fish dangling on the line!
Kaden with his Rainbow Trout!
A nice passerby asked if he could take our picture as a family. The kids proudly showed off their fish. Abbie caught a Brook Trout and she loved that because she loves Brookie so much! She kept saying, "look Brook....I caught a Brookie Trout!"
The kids baiting their hooks with Dad. The kids love fishing with their dad!
Brooklyn loved walking on the boardwalk. We were fishing right off of it and she loved that the strem went under the bridge right here and made a hollow sound when she walked. She loved running back and forth on the boardwalk. What a funny little smile today!
The kids 3 fish that they caught. Isaac and Kaden caught Rainbow Trout and Abbie caught a BrookTrout.
Just a few weeks ago, Reed took the boys with him to help with an Eagle Scout Service Project. It was up north by Kansas City in an old cemetery that had headstones that had fallen over. So, they helped restack headstones and put everything up right. The boys even had a deer walk right close to them and Reed took a fun video of the boys with the deer walking by. The boys loved helping with the Eagle Scout Service Project.
