Summer Summary. Mostly randoms.

We adopted our dog Addie over Memorial Day weekend.
 Sometimes she acts like a cat.
 But, she's always cute and rarely annoys me which is pretty amazing.
 And, I'm not trying to brag but she's pretty obsessed with me.
 I got this for free on the side of the road. The drawers were a little messed up and I had been wanting a garden bench to use for storage so...
 I turned it into this for next to nothing.
 My hair was really getting long and I was really getting tired of it so I cut it off and donated it. Yay!

 Aunt Lisa and cousins came to visit and this is Dylan on July 4th at a pie eating contest. All the boys did it but for some reason i only have a picture of him. Asher gave up after about one bite, but the other boys tried really hard. It was hi-larious.
 I'm pretty sure it's against some kind of rule, but I couldn't resist taking this photo of my boys during sacrament meeting. They are just so handsome.
 We started experiencing mood swings which is apparently not that uncommon around Asher's age.
 And it's usually because THIS needs to happen.
 Went to the Air Show on base.
Went to a Mariner's game.

 Went to one of our favorite summertime places Sauvie Island Farms and did a bunch of canning.
 Played and tubed down the Washougal River.
 Enjoyed some sunny days!
 Asher with his BFF Arianna. I babysit her everyday during the summer. Yes, she is wearing his swim clothes because she didn't have hers that day. We were just in the backyard enjoying the Avenger's pool and my new hammock.
 Splash pad!!

Looking at these pictures reminds me of how lucky I am. It has been a great year. Honestly, I spent most of it feeling like I was living in an emotional fog. It wasn't until I started coming out of it that I realized it had been happening. But, I am grateful for all the good times we've had!

First of all your hair is gorgeous an SECOND OF ALL: are you serious that you made that dresser thing into that storage thing?! And you act like it was no big deal.
