Tommy and Cali Come to Town...Tennis Lessons...Blueberries...4th of July

We were so lucky to have Tommy and Cali join us (and the Andersens) for a week of fun.  For part of the time the kids stayed with us while Caroline was on a Roommate Trip and Seth was in Mexico.  It was so fun to get to know Tommy and Cali better.
We hadn't picked blueberries for a couple of years so we decided it was time to go fill our freezer.  YUMMO!!!
Looks at all these cute cousin girls in their 4th of July attire!

The rest of the week we filled in with tennis lesson and swimming at the instructor's pool.  Tommy was pretty sure he didn't need lessons as he has been playing against pros (apparently).  He did humble himself for a week of instruction.
Cali enjoyed HOURS of pool time!
And I mean HOURS...we were at tennis lessons for four hours with all the different kid's ages so when the kids weren't at tennis lessons they were swimming.

During the afternoons the kids filled their time with dressing up and writing plays.

4th of July evening we spent with friends swimming and dining on yummy food.  Nate is really an amazing flipper!!
Just when Birch and I were ready to head to bed the kids convinced us to drive down to see the fireworks.  I gotta say each year the kids get more excited about the fireworks and I get less.  We did pile everyone in and had a great time laying on blankets and watching the city fireworks show.
