July 2014

Back at home we finished up some things before heading back to the island for the rest of the summer.
We went to Miller Park to see at Brewer vs. Cardinal game.  Mags and I cheered on the Brewers while the boys cheered on the Cardinals.  We were a family divided and had lots of fun.

 Magnolia finished up her riding lessons with Brenda and Cinnamon.

Summer 2014 on the Island Part I

Nani rented our house for a whole month that summer and she invited us to come for as long we could. This is our first weekend up. We had to make a quick trip home before we settled in for the month.  That particular weekend we brought up our new tent and George, the kids including Musa, tried it out on the front yard.
 We had a fish boil in town.

 We played at the Red Barn Park.

And a whole lot of other island things which can sometimes be just about nothing but being together.

4th of July 2014

Here goes my November update my blog!  I'm guessing this will take me all month but when I pull up pictures on a moment's notice for my kids to see, I realize how invaluable this journal is. 

4th of July 2014.  I'm wondering if this is the reason I stopped blogging...I lost all my pics of our magical 4th that summer. I remember being very upset about it. I'm glad I have this photo of Mags and George at the WFB parade with cousin, Lily. Seeing Lily helps me remember that they were with us that 4th, their first summer here. 

 After we walked home from the parade George decided to ride Magnolia's new retro bike with her on the handlebars. Pretty cute!
