Fourth of July part 2

After spending a fun morning at the zoo we spent the afternoon in the backyard! We got out the kiddie pool, the sprinklers and the slip and slide and the kids (and Shawn!) had a great time playing in the water.

Sadly, our air conditioning choose this weekend to stop working, so it's about a million degrees in our house right now. We ended up spending most of the afternoon outside because with the shade on the back porch and the breeze I think it is actually cooler outside than it is inside. Playing in the sprinklers is a great cure for a broken air conditioner! Hopefully we can get someone over here tomorrow to fix it.

After some fun time in the water we had a yummy BBQ with hamburgers, corn on the cob, pasta salad, Raspberry lemonade and ice cream for desert. Yum!

Now we're all hanging out in the basement since it's the only cool place in the house. Thank goodness for the basement. We're all sleeping down here tonight. The kids think it's a big treat to sleep in the basement!

Here are some pictures I took of the water fun!

Hi Wendy!
Your pictures are always AMAZING! I would love to purchase a lower-end digital SLR and begin dabbling in photography. Would you ever e-mail me and tell me a few cameras you would recommend for a beginner? I really want to achieve some of those blurry background, crisp front pictures that you create that I'm so envious of!! (I know that will mean a lot of practice, but that's my goal!!). Thanks Wendy! Love your blog by the way! I follow it all the time! -amber ( You can e-mail me at:
