First Day of School

 Tyler started 2nd grade this year!

 Dylan Started Pre-K this year!

They are getting so big!  Kyle wants to be big too!  He tries so hard to do whatever they are doing.

Summer Fun

There were only a few days cool enough to go for a bike ride, so we took full advantage.

 On the other days, we just tried to stay as cool as possible.

Out on the Bike

We went riding!  The Republic of Texas motorcycle rally is always a good excuse to find a sitter and go for a ride.  We get together with a whole group of friends that all ride and go downtown to watch thousands of bikes roll into Austin.

Swimming all Summer

With the record breaking heat we had this summer we spent a lot of time at the pool.

When Grandpa came to visit he took us everyday (sometimes twice).  We spent hours there!

Grandpa & Grandma Visit

Grandpa and Grandma Dickson came to visit over the 4th of July. 

I love this picture!

 We made our first trip to the Austin Children's Museum

On the 4th we went to the church pancake breakfast, went to the Round Rock parade, and then went to one of the few firework shows in central Texas not canceled due to the dry weather conditions.  Thank you City of Georgetown.

We met some family from up in Dallas at the Waco zoo.   We braved the heat and had fun catching up with Karma, Steve, and Lindsey and her cute girls!

While Mom and Dad where here it was their 35th wedding anniversary!  Aren't they cute?!

Seattle 1/2 Marathon

This is the 3rd year we have done the Seattle 1/2 Marathon.  This year I had some big goals for myself.  I wanted to be able to run the whole 13.1 (no walking!) and also do it in less than two and a half hours.

It was a GREAT success!  Dad and I ran the whole way together and did it in 2 hours 25 minutes!

Happy Birthday Tyler!

Tyler is now 7!  He had a great day.  This is the year for family birthday parties.  Tyler decided we where going to McDonald's, going swimming and then cake and presents. 

Move to Texas

At the end of May Jeff's brother, Terry, moved to Texas!  After the long drive down from Michigan with his dog Jake we walked to the park to get some exercise and energy out. 

 The boys love having Uncle Terry here!  Almost as much as they love Jake!
