Drone

Sean was telling his parents about the drone he saw during the fireworks one day and guess what he got as a present from them for his birthday a few days later.
IMG_6658e
Sean's very own drone/helicopter thing. It takes video!

IMG_6636e
Everyone is enraptured.

IMG_6642e
All the kids took turns at the wheel. Closely monitored by Sean.

IMG_6644e
Grey liked to press the flipping button.

IMG_6646e
There's two batteries that last ten minutes each. Twenty minutes of excitement!

IMG_6652e
Then a neighbor dog came to visit and the drone was forgotten. Ah, a child's life.

Big Pool

IMG_6464e
Last season I got a nice, big pool on sale. It's finally been warm enough to set it up!

IMG_6463e
It's a good place for lounging.

IMG_6467e
Any ol' lounging preference you prefer.

IMG_6468e
Everyone covets the hose.

IMG_6486e
Taking a selfie break with mom!

IMG_6483e
Guess they had some hot heads?

IMG_6489e
When Grey tries to copy-cat. Also, why we don't know leave kids in a pool by themselves.

Ah ha, he's okay, folks!
