Summer fun with cousins!

It's official! Andy's sister and familly (aka "The Meades") have moved to town!

This is the first time in our almost thirteen years of marriage that we have lived near family.  We love it!

And we've been up to some pretty fun stuff!

Pool time!  (And silly boys).

Curtis said, "Look!  I'm on a vacation."

Andy and the three big kids went off for a week of church camp.

The night before she left, Bella included in her prayers a request for being on the top bunk at camp.  She got what she wanted!

It's a camp tradition to throw down a huge tarp and cover it in soap and water to create a massive, fast slip 'n slide.

Andy literally rose to the challenge!

The camp had a safari theme surrounding the lesson of God's love and our love for others.

While the big kids were off at camp, I took the little ones to the children's museum in Indianapolis.

The Teenage Mutant Turtle exhibit will be coming in September, which is a must-see for our family.

The Hot Wheels exhibit was the boys' favorite.

At one point, Charlie said to me, "I feel like I'm on a field trip."  :)

We had a great time; but each of us was very excited for the end of the week to arrive and for our campers to return home!
