We went to Union County Fair Saturday night and Dane met up with his friend Rylee for some fun.

Just the highlights.
Dane played the entire time in the creek. There he is to the far left.
He caught a 'mud dobber'. I have no idea what that actually means. Is 'mud dobber' a real fish name? Regardless he was thrilled!
Here's some of the old men.
This is where g-pa Grimes would have been. Sandwiched somewhere between his brothers.
Olive quickly made some girlfriends. She's so friendly.

One morning last weekend Dane is off playing outside while I'm busy with the usual house chores and attending to Olive. I hear him coming in and out of the house assembling items. "Mom, I need a pillow." "Mom, Where's my computer?" Etc. After awhile I went out to see what he was up to and found this. He'd pulled his wagon under a shade tree and made himself comfortable.
Then he requested that I make him a sandwich and deliver it to his "house".
This boy is ALWAYS up to something. ALWAYS.

This boy goes full throttle from the time his eyes open in the morning. He can be exhausting. This is what I found him doing at 8am.
This is what country kids do for fun.
Then he thinks..... Let's put Olive in the wagon too! My first reaction was "NO, I don't think that's a good idea. She could get hurt." He was relentless and since it was only 8am and I only had 1 cup of coffee in me I agreed to let her ride. Here's what happened:
Is it just me or is she looking alittle scared in this picture? I feel as if she's looking at me and thinking "Really Mom, Your gonna let this happen?!"
After this I went to take her out of the wagon and noticed she had pooped. I told Dane that he must of scared the poop right out of her which he thought was hysterical.

We had been wanting to take Dane to Kings Island for awhile now. He's tall enough to ride quite a few rides. Brad had a day off where the weather was good so we decided to give it a try.
We had so much fun and I loved to get to experience these things with Dane.
Bumper Cars. Dane was cracking us up because instead of bumping into the other cars he would just drive around them.
Dane's 1st roller coaster!
Dane practically rode every ride 2x. I would take a turn and Brad would hold Olive. Then Brad took a turn and I held Olive. The system worked quite well. We ALL had fun!
While waiting for the boys Olive and I rode a little train. It was pretty boring really and she almost fell asleep.
Lots of Snoopy character's roaming around. Who is this anyway? Frankin? We're not really Snoopy fans.

Realistically, You could probably get away with only 1 swimsuit. After all, I only have 1 swimsuit. However. Olive has 3. Only because when I saw this 2 piece sailor inspired navy with white stars and gold glittery buttons last weekend at Old Navy I COULD NOT STOP MYSELF. She had to have it. And boy does she look cute in it!
Olive and Uncle John
Olive and cousin Zeke
Olive had a good time at the pool today, though today she was more interested to hang out under the shade tree climbing all over the chairs and rummaging through our beach bags.
Oh, Olive. Stop it. She's killing me with cuteness. Just love her to pieces.
I've thoughly enjoyed my week off work and my time at the pool with the kiddos. I was able to really enjoy them, work on my tan, read a book, and even catch up on episodes of a show called Damages (which I LOVE)
Back to reality and work on Monday.

I hope everyone had a Happy 4th of July! Brad had the day off so he got to play at the pool with us :)
Elise and Dane caught sharing secrets during lessons.
Just alittle playtime at the park before heading in to lessons. Dang she's a cutie pie!
