Bike rides at Lake Murray – less than 2 weeks after learning to ride a 2-wheeler, AJ was going off sweet jumps on his bike.
Nicholas continues to secure our house from bad guys with his arsenal.
Grandma & Grandpa have stopped by for dinner or a visit throughout the summer.
The preschool Summer Fun program had a fabulous parade & picnic for the 4th of July. Nicholas & the older kids ran a lemonade stand to raise money for the end of the summer party. We were so impressed with how hard NCL was working and trying to sell. He was very intent on selling all the lemonade 😀
Daddy & AJ relaxing on the couch one night.
We spent the 4th of July at Aunt Patty’s pool party. It was a nice afternoon.
We drove out to Santee to see fireworks that night (with a secret east coast visiting friend) and the boys fell asleep on the way home.
We had a family movie day and saw How to Train Your Dragon:2. Always fun to go to the theater.
We met up with dear friends this last week when the Mion’s were in town. Fun to see the kids growing.

Family, Friends, Vacation
I pretty much gave up blogging after the first few days at Silver Lake. Although we had a connection, it was PAINFULLY slow to upload pictures…so, I moved over to Instagram to post pics.
Here is the rest of the week in pictures:
Day Trip to Bodie with the Camping Gang.
Fun at the campground.
We spent the day in Mammoth towards the end of the week. It was GREAT fun. Joe bike-rode the mountain the entire day and the boys got to try out rock climbing, bungee-trampoline jumping and zip lining! They LOVED it all!
It was a great week with friends and family. We so fortunate to have a great group to travel with. All the kids had a great time together and the adult got to have some fun, too. It’s always hard to end our annual RV road trip. This one was shorty than normal for us – but that’s because we had to save a bit of vacation time for our big trip to the East Coast – only weeks away now 😀

Introducing the newest family member: Elliot Sam Meduna.
Joe’s Sister, Megan, went into labor the day that we drove home from our Silver Lake vacation. Joe’s parents were only 40 minutes away when the announcement came….IT’S a BOY!!!
Cora is officially a BIG sister now – and I can ONLY imagine how thrilled she will be in the coming years (to have a ‘little brother’). That will be fun to watch!!
The LG 4 hope to see & hold our nephew/cousin today (for the first time). The boys are very excited to have another boy in the family. Elliot will have a WHOLE lot of awesome ‘boy toys’ to play with, that is for sure!!
Congrats to Meg & Steve! And Cora 😀 Now the fun really begins!

Family, Holidays, Vacation
What a GREAT idea…to spend Father’s Day doing what we love. Vacation Camping!!
There was quite a bit of fishing (not so much ‘catching’).
A whole lot of bike riding!! AJ finally learned how to ride a 2-wheeler this morning!!
A little boat trip to a VERY small island on the lake.
Wishing all the Dad’s a very happy day. Looking forward to a whole week of camping fun at Silver Lake 😀

The week after Easter, the littlest LG turned 4 years old. We threw together a little party with family & friends, food, and a piñata.
Instead of birthday cake, we did “Make Your Own Ice Cream Sundaes!”
And after all the eating, playing and piñata-breaking – Anthony FINALLY got to open presents (the ONLY thing he really cares about the whole day)
Happy 4th to out little ninja turtle.
