basketballs, VBS and peaches!

My kids and I were able to spend a couple of hours with Lance on Father's day before heading off to Shreveport for the week. We didn't see him all week prior to that since we were the beach and then he spent the weekend down at the condo with his dad and two other friends for a guys golfing weekend. So our time on Father's day was short but sweet. Here is a picture of what the kids gave to lance. I have been wanting to do this project for some time and I love it! I get great ideas from a blog called No Time For Flash Cards and I highly recommend it!

Last week was a down scaled version of last year's "cousin camp" at my parent's house while I worked my basketball camp at St. Mark's school. Instead of 8 kids staying at their house, it was only 5 and that doesn't include the 4 other cousins living in Shreveport near them! My mom loves kids and chaos so she got what she asked for!! ;)

My kids had such a great time that they didn't even notice me coming and going each morning and afternoon! And the evenings was filled with VBS at the local church that even Kennedy got to attend...she loves hangin with the big kids. This was also a good breather my parents would get before round two of activities took place on Sundown Drive at night. Speaking of night time activities... there is no cousin camp without a midnight sprinkler party (this is my mom's way of getting the kids bathed the most efficient way!). I laughed every time when a car came by because they would all scream, "Car!!!" and hit the ground to hide...guess you had to have been there! I am sorry that I don't have any pictures from these activities... :(

After a long, but very successful week of basketball camp, we got back to Ruston just in time to enjoy some of the festivities for the Ruston Peach Festival. We always enjoy the parade every year and, of course, getting some peaches!

The kids waiting for the parade to start...not sure why, but the bags always seem to go on the heads!!

Enjoying their 'loot' on the front swing of the AXO house!
