July 2016 started out with our dear friends, The White Family, coming to visit with their 4 kiddos. For as little as the kids see each other, they are always able to pick right back up and get along really well. Below are some pictures from their visit:
We met up with Bently and Lily to watch a movie at the drive-in - but all 5 kids were asleep before the movie ended. It was still lots of fun!
Below is watching the fireworks display in North Canton
We spent many hot summer days in the pool in our backyard or at the local public pool
Jake and Grace were on the same baseball team and it was very fun to watch them play
We went down to Athens, OH to celebrate Kathy's 30th birthday. The next day, we went to a place similar to Chuck E. Cheese and celebrated more family birthdays. It is always fun to have a weekend with the Vandervaart family.
Our month of July ended with our annual "Beach MO" vacation. This vacation is filled with swimming, euchre, playing in sand, and lots of laughing.
The first day was a little cold, so we rented an 11-person bike and it was definitely memorable! Needless to say, we got several looks :)
