Let's see... the month of July has been all "relative", I suppose. My dad was down for a few days last week, my mom and Donald were here earlier this week. We enjoyed riding in the Jeep with the top off, then going boating at Sullivan Lake with them. Good times! My step-grandma from Florida is staying nearby with her daughter for a visit. We've seen her and had a big family lunch over the weekend. And today, Court's family arrives from California...9 of them to be exact. Four of them are the cutest kids you'll ever see...I may have to try to just keep one and see if they notice. :)
On Saturday, the 15 of us will head to Lexington to visit more family. There will be about 30 of us over the weekend to celebrate Grandad's 100th birthday. It's a little early, but who says you can't party more than once when you turn a century old? :)
I don't think we've ever had so much family visit within such a short time frame! The boys are loving it, and so far have asked everyone to please just move in with us. It could really get crowded here! :)
Oh, and this has also been our fair week. Andrew got a blue ribbon on his photography project. He chose not to put the rabbit in the fair this year, but might next year. And he's having surgery next week...in the middle of the CA visit. But, we had to take the open date since we're on the countdown to school starting.
So, if you're in the neighborhood and you smell the grill cooking, stop on by. We surely won't notice a few more...and besides, Isaac may ask you to move in with us!

One day, on a trip to Riley hospital (of course!) we stopped at White River Gardens. Andrew wanted to take pictures there for his 4H project and what a great choice that was. When we got there, we found out it was "release day". There were butterflies everywhere! They were landing on us and made for some easy picture-taking. The butterflies landing on us didn't settle well with Isaac, but them swarming everywhere sure made it nice for Andrew and his budding photography skills.Here are the pics Andrew took for his that he used for his project:
