Children's Museum Fun

Last weekend Tim and I had some great friends from Dubuque over to stay with us and we took a trip to the Children's Museum.  The kiddos loved it... we even had minimal crying from Graham which in itself is a miracle  :)
Graham even tried the "big slide" this year

Flying planes

Hot air balloon ride

Flying rockets

Racing balls

Racing cars

It only costs a hundred dollars mom...

And Vuala!

This looks like it should have some inappropriate comment like: "oh $#!& we're being pulled over"

Big Brother, Little Sister Love

We had to get some Big Brother/ Little Sister pictures taken before the outfits got to little  :)  Check out all the love!

This one is my favorite!

Omaha Zoo Trip

Tim's cousin (Katelyn) got married in Norfolk, NE on July 9th so we took the opportunity to go visit relatives in Nebraska and take a trip to the Omaha Zoo.  We had a blast, it was a little toasty that day as you can tell my all the sweating, but fun was still had by all. 

Cousins (Derek and Clayton)

Graham liked the giraffes the best!

I just loved this little guy, totally reminded me of my kids, so sassy!

We tried for a family photo, but this is what we got  :)

4th of July Pictures

We spent the 4th of July in Cedar Rapids with my family.  Graham loved the fireworks this year, however the sparklers were NOT a hit... totally terrified  :(  Maybe he'll like them again next year.

Father's Day in Green Bay, WI

Our first big trip with both kids was for Father's Day.  We went to Green Bay, WI to visit family, but most of all to see my mom's father "Grandpa Chip" who is 92 this year.  We stayed with Grandma Nancy, too k a tour of Bay Beach, a little theme park near the Bay of Green Bay where Tim and I rode our first roller coaster in over 7 years, and had a big Geurts Family fish fry on Sunday.  As is typical of the weather in Green Bay is was 83 and humid on Saturday and 60 and raining for the fish fry.  Despite the weather we had a great time.  Here are some picture of the trip:
