Summer's Here!

Summer has taken off! Things have been pretty crazy around here, but we are so enjoying it! As usual, my blogs have stockpiled so here is the condensed version.
A few weekends ago we had a ward bbq, as I previously mentioned. We had such a fun time, but I had some secret fun watching Dexter at the bbq. He was my personal hero all day, and the picture just sums it up.

This picture is especially fun because...

1. You can see that they are both on their 2nd sodas
2. You can see the chocolate all over Dexter's face from the cookies

3. And Dexter clearly is looking sick...

It has been super hot here this last week, and we discovered that maybe we did wish that we had AC after all. We are all very wilted by the end of the day, especially Cooper. We had our Daines Family Reunion this week, which was super fun, but very tiring. We did so many fun things, I never managed to take a picture. Here is Cooper after one of our long days at the reunion.

And then, the Fourth! We were so lucky to get to be with both of our families this year. We had so much fun at the parade with the Davis family, and then the rest of the day out at the cabins. My Own Firecracker!

Bizzer and Annie

Typical Cooper ...we got so lucky with this guy!

We were so lucky yesterday to get to attend baby Annie's blessing. I won't give away Candy's upcoming post, but it was a very special blessing. Also, we attended a special Daines family reunion to honor Steven's grandmother who is 90 years old. She has created such a wonderful posterity, and we feel very lucky to be part of our families.

Thank you, thank you for all the pictures. Your Cooper is SO precious. I love his eyelashes in that onesie picture. (I love little baby boys in white onesies.) I'm so glad the ward bbq went well. I was in that calling and would get so stressed, so I feel for James and Steve!!! PLEASE give Cooper a kiss for me.

We had so much fun spending time with all of you guys, Daines and Davis it was a blast! We love you guys and all of your amazing children!

Me love you long tim!

Wow Cooper is getting cuter than ever. Looks like another great personality in the Daines family! It is funny how without children you can rough it to save money, but once you have kids you would just rather spend the money so they are comfortable. It is killing Dave to run our A/C so much right now, but it is worth it for a better nights sleep with Lucy.

Steve's shirt is so awesome!

Generations come and generations the end it is always about our footprints which guide our posterity. Cooper is so lucky to have the footprints of his parents to guide him along...Love, mom those chubby legs and cheeks!!
