july postcard

4th of July parade and family cook-out, a couple of visits with Uncle Adam, the Idaho Falls Zoo with cousins, camping, a AAA baseball game, a busted nose and a trip to the Playmill Theater in West Yellowstone, MT (Guys and Dolls- so good!!). Our July has been wonderful! Coming up this week- a trip to Las Vegas, NV and Gilbert, AZ to visit family, see the sites and have an awesome time with my TTT (Teeny Tiny Tietjen- Avery's 4th Ward nickname) and my bestie/LP Ashley. July just couldn't get any better!!

updated: new face

Update: I have black eyes now, too!! Just try not to grab your pitchforks and torches when you see me walking down the street. I won't hurt you. Promise.
I got smacked in the face with a stock pot that fell off of our pot rack. Nothing's broken. They super glued me to help with scarring. And now I look like the Bride of Frankenstein post-nose job. Hot.

Half-Blood Heroes

Oh my! I just got done reading this series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan, and then I got hit with this- a Percy movie!!! This is just a bare-bones teaser trailer, but I wanted to post it along with a recommendation to everyone I know- READ THESE BOOKS. They are great! I can only hope the movie is half as good.

squeaky swings and tall grass

Man, summer is going by so quickly! We are loving every minute of it. This video pretty much captures what we have done just about every day this month- swimming, eating popsicles, and picking raspberries. Add playing with the house full of girls that just moved in next door, cousins, aunts and uncles, and a camping trip, and that's our last couple of weeks in a nutshell. I love summer!
