Happy 4rth of July! We actually spent the 4rth of July out at Birch Bay during the day. We came home in the afternoon and roasted hot dogs and marshmellos with our own family and put the kids to bed early because we were leaving for Crescent Bar on Friday... At Crescent Bar they were doing the 4rth of July parade and firework show on the Saturday after the 4rth!
Lots of swimming in the pool! Griffin and Gannon can both swim well. Gunnar and Tyra both did good with swimming with their floaties on! We have been going to Crescent Bar for 12 years now! (I think we all didn't go just 1 year b/c we did a Disneyland trip with the Dykstras) This was the first year in 8 years all my kids could be in the big pool!! (kids have to be potty trained to be in the big pool) So it was much more relaxing for me this year not having a baby or a 1 year old stumbling around a pool!

The kids made a "treasure Island"
lots of dog piles and wrestling and girls chase boys... and a little bit of kissing cousins :)
The week after Crescent Bar was Lynden's Famous 3 on 3 Rasperry festival and basketball tournament. Both Griffin and Gannon were in it... We started out the morning with some rain... luckily the boys didn't seem to mind and it did clear up by afternoon.
Gannon and cousin Logan... both on different teams but had the same uniforms
Griffin's team... Dexter Zylstra, Lane Dykstra, Griffin, and Tyler Sipma
These boys play ball so well together, it was so fun to watch!
