July in Minnesota

 Having kids is almost like being a kid all over again - it was so fun to see Esther enjoying things up at the farm! It didn't take her long to catch on to picking up candy at the 4th of July parade - with a little help, she got quite a stash, which her mother and aunts and uncles ate :)
 She enjoyed the "glow stuff" too and learned a new word at the fireworks - "Wow!"
 My sisters are such fun aunties - and David, Daniel, and Jeriah are fun cousins -
 Esther and Jeriah are about the same size, and they both enjoy Grandma's cookies!
 A little people picnic -
 I took a lot of pictures of the girls with their grandparents - I only posted a few of them though -
 Priscilla with Anna - Esther laughs every time she sees a picture of Priscilla :)
 Mom and Esther in the corn maze!
 Dad and Anna camping out on the floor - in the last week or so, Anna has been getting up on all fours, and I don't think it'll be long 'till she crawls.
 Dad and his grandkids :)
 Grandpa O. and Anna
 We took Esther through the corn maze - she wanted to walk the whole way...and pick up fallen stalks...and had the best time of anyone I've ever seen!
 Grandpa K. and Anna
 My dad and the girls -
 We took Esther to the county fair to see the animals - she was shy at first, but warmed up and wanted to walk around herself.
 Esther and the birds -
 Esther and the fish -
 Esther and the rabbits -
 Mom and Anna -
 Before we left, we were able to attend the wedding of a young man from church - it was a very sweet wedding -
 and a fun reception.
 We had a great time, but after being gone for 3 weeks, it's always nice to sleep in our own beds and eat at our own table.
