wow~ it has been a whopping two weeks since i have last posted. i have thoroughly enjoyed reading everybody else's posts and taken a little break myself. i think i am in a blogging funk. we have had lots of fun adventures over here at the boot house and i will blog all about them and get you all up to date on our lives very soon, but for now i am still in a funk and am not ready to rejoin the blogging world! school will start in about a week and a half, then i will be devoured by breaking dawn, so i will do my best to get back soon! until then.....

Nico has always been one with a very big imagination. he loves going outside and reliving what he sees on TV or the movies or makes up his own games.... These days his biggest thing is to be Indiana Jones. We as a family watched all of the 3 previous Indiana Jones movies to prepare for the new one (which we still have not seen!). He has been addicted to the movies and to anything Indiana Jones related...... he even put together the perfect costume that came straight from his closet and rob's accessories and a nice bag that grandma boot made him a while ago. he will play outside for hours trying to rope his whip around a tree to swing on it or just go hiking through our backyard pretending he is on a treasure hunt. one day he came home with his bag full of rocks, glass pieces and other found treasure from the yard. i love Nico, i mean indiana..... he is so funny!!

it is tradition to go the lake every 4th of july. This year we invited lots of friends and had such a great time. Our main 4th of July tradition is to celebrate Nico's birthday. so we arrived at the lake on friday afternoon after eating a yummy lunch at Jack's. we immediately got the boat in the water and started our adventures. we did lots of tubing, wake boarding, land locking and eating!!

last weekend we went to Briscoe Park. you may be thinking oh- big deal, but to me it was. this park is just about 20 minutes from our house and we NEVER go here, but friends of ours invited us to go feed ducks with them and this is where we ended up.

Brett's friend Justin has been spending most weekends with us and the kids have LOVED it!! Annelies has a huge crush on him and melts whenever he says her name. she always makes sure to wear her best and make sure her hair is done just right. it is very cute!!
Our cat Miley has gone MIA, but we luckily kept one of her kittens that we lovingly call Rascal.
