Double Digits Baby!

July 18 marked Little B's 10-month anniversary of life outside of me :)  He's officially been living on "the outside" longer than he lived on "the inside".  I know I've said it before, but we just can't get enough of this little man!

The Annual Crane Summer Bash

Right at the end of June and into the beginning of July, we were super excited to welcome the Crane gang to the lake for a little over a week of fun in the sun.  Unfortunately, Curt wasn't able to join us this year because he was busy directing planes and such, but it was sure super to have Amy, G1 and G2 back in MN.  We had awesome weather and had a great time just spending our days together.  Here are a bunch of pictures from their visit!

Our mornings started out quite relaxingly - often with a little bit of iPad time for the cousins on the couch!
 Little B just had to watch from the floor.
By late morning, we typically made our way outside and enjoyed the sunshine and the lake.
This trio of blondies could cause some real trouble in the coming years, I think!
 And these two lovely ladies can get a little goofy themselves!
When not outside in the water, the kiddos could be found drawing, coloring, playing Legos (a lot), having nerf gun fights, gettin' down with some dance parties, putting on plays, watching movies, having battles, and the list goes on and on...
The newest addition to the Crane family also made his inaugural visit to MN - G1's new kitten, Shadow, provided some good entertainment as well.
We also enjoyed celebrating the fourth of July together again - complete with the Cannon Falls parade, mini sparkler cakes, and some awesome fireworks - including a few of our own followed by some pretty great shows around the lake.
And our time together would not be complete without a boat ride over to "the cliffs" for some swimming fun!
 It was truly an awesome week!
