We spent the 4th of July at a cookout with our friends Kristy and Sean Burks. The boys loved the cookout but not the fireworks! Philip watched from the back seat of the station wagon until he heard the first "Boom!" He then headed inside. About 2 minutes later, Jackson joined him. When we looked around and all four of us were in the house alone is when I said, "The party is over for the Benders," and we headed home.
|Philip, Jackson and Sam (who loved the fireworks but also liked the idea of watching from inside the car!)|

Susan, Joshua, Caleb, Rebekah, and Benjamin came into town for VBS. I took only a few pictures of our fun because the majority of our time spent together was at VBS. Here are a few of Benjamin and Philip in the backyard.

More legos, cars and even a motorcycle he picked out for Philip!
(I had to use this picture as the "before" because I love how Jackson is sleeping. He has slept this way since Day One with his little hands curled up!)
These pictures are from our monthly visit with Miss Tricia. She spoiled the boys with gifts for Jackson's birthday!!
|I love this picture!!!!|
Something happened to Jackson in the beginning of July and he became a swimmer! He loves it! Here he is swimming to Wesley and Philip. Look at that form!
|I finally got around to making something with the zucchini from our garden!|
Pumpkin Zucchini muffins.
