We went to Lee's Summit Downtown Days this morning before it got to hot and crowded. Well it wasn't crowded but it was still hot. The humidity is unbearable.

Violet won a beach ball.

Why are all carnival rides creepy. Love it!

Road the carousel twice.

Then cried and yelled "my horsey, my horsey". She was quickly distracted with popcorn and forgot all about it.

Too hot. Time to go home.

I just got an email of the group picture that was taken friday at the pancake breakfast. These are all the elementary school kids, minus the six little ones up front that aren't in school yet.

This past weekend we got all new landscape lights and spot lights. When we ordered new counter tops they were offering a rebate in the form of a giftcard to Lowes.These are much brighter than our old ones. We have 10 new landscape lights and 3 new spot lights. I didn't get a full shot of the front of the house, but there are lights on the other side of the garage too.
I took some of the old lights and moved them to the backyard and added one of our old spot lights to the front yard tree. It now has 3 spot lights on it.

I love our street. This was from friday. On the first and last day of school everyone on our street gets together for a pancake breakfast before the kids hop on the bus. Mike and Angie hold it. Violet now refers to Mike as "Mike Pancake". We then took Violet to school and then took Chris' dad to the doctor. We've had a busy and relaxing weekend. Time to head back to work and get back to our normal routine.

We decided to hold it at our house since we get evening shade in the front. We put all the food in the garage and had two grills going.

LOTS of food!!!

Dancing to music.

Fun with the neighbors.

Violet lasted till 7:35 then wanted to go to bed. I lasted till 12:15. Chris lasted till 1:15.
