Last week we went to a quaint little park on the lake in Lake Oswego with Craig and Lauren. After scarfing down our picnic dinner, we headed to the water. Lauren and I played in the kiddie pool with the kids while we watched Craig and Chris jump off the diving board into the lake. I really don't like swimming in lakes (something about not being able to see the bottom, and when you do touch the bottom, it oozes up around your me the heebie jeebies just thinking about it) so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have gone in even if we were sans kids. Bennett kept calling the lake "the hole" and attempted going in with Chris once but didn't like it. I don't blame him.

Bennett and "the hole":
Last week we also met up with our friends (and their kids, who happen to be friends) for fro yo.
The kid table:
For the 4th of July we went to our friend's block party.
We ate great food, met a ton of new people and did fire works.

Another successful family photo!:
The cats were exhaused from a long night of hiding from scary fireworks:
Chris had Friday off so we decided to go to the zoo:

Up close and personal:
We wanted to get a little treat after the zoo so we headed to Salt and Straw:

Love this one:
Friday evening we met The Carter's at the park, then went back to their house for dinner.
We decided to let the bigger kids watch a movie, while the babies played with toys and us adults actually got to play a game (for once!):
Saturday morning Chris ran 18 miles, then we took the boys over to play at Chris' parents house while we had a little date (the first one in months!!!). I had been thinking about getting my nose pierced so I finally did it, then we grabbed thai food before heading to IKEA to gew a few things. NEWSFLASH: Ikea now has chocolate fro yo and you can get it swirled with vanilla! It's so good!

Lunch at Bamboo Thai:
Earlier this week Chris took the boys on a bike ride and Buck was determined to annoy his big brother by scrathing his nails on the mesh screen.
I love it:
(Sorry Bennett, that's what little brothers are for)

I'll leave you with this:
