July 1st (breakfast at home), Caroline is ready to get out-of-town
Elizabeth is taking her time :)
I drove the first "half"
The girls watching movies and playing with their magnetic drawing boards
In Breezewood we changed drivers.
Our 3 1/2 hour drive took 6 hours due to all the holiday traffic (and car accidents)
I was so happy to NOT be driving at this point :)
Skip forward to Sunday, July 2nd.
Pool party #1
Ben throwing Caroline
Ben's turn for the diving board
I love this picture!
Kylie, Nico, and Caroline swimming backwards
Elizabeth "swimming like a mermaid"
Love this guy!
We brought Elizabeth's summer pudding gift and shared with all the kids.
It was chocolate pudding "dirt cups" with crushed oreos and gummie worms.
Caroline played in blue sand and then ate chocolate pudding.
After this photo, Ben hosed her off in the backyard. ha!
We made mountain pies for dinner and dessert.
I had never made these and took my opportunity to document the process
(I knew my mom would have questions, ha!)
Above is the contraption you put your mountain pie in.
I made a dessert one.
Two pieces of buttered bread first.
I added Nutella, chocolate chips, and marshmallows.
The iron is closed and ready for the fire
Nick was a very nice (and patient) teacher
Cooking my mountain pie
Ready to eat!
It was really good!!
After dinner we did sparklers with the kids
Again, Nick was a very nice and patient teacher
Caroline LOVED sparklers!
Elizabeth was really concentrating
Nico LOVED it too!
A dad and his baby girl
Love these three!
Jared had fun with sparklers too :)
Then we made s'mores.
After s'mores, the kids went to bed and the adults hung out
We enjoyed the fire pit
That's a wrap on Part 1. Come back tomorrow for Part 2.
Happy Monday y'all!
