Rain and yoga

Overheard this afternoon -

Mama: Listen! Can you hear the rain?
Andrew: Yes! It sounds like music.

Also we had our first successful family yoga session this evening (there have been several unsuccessful attempts).  Andrew and I did a sun salutation, a warrior II, and triangle pose on both sides.  The kid does a great triangle pose, let me tell you.  

Clara just wanted to walk underneath me during down dog.

July in Ohio

We spent the week of July the Fourth in Ohio with Grandma and Grandpa.  Orrville throws a huge celebration with a fair and a softball tournament, a parade and fireworks.  We also got to see lots of dear friends and family.  And tractors.  Lots of tractors.

We flew into Columbus on a deal, so we spent the first night at the Hyatt Regency Downtown and scored a sweet (suite) upgrade.

From there we made our way to Grandpa and Grandma's house.

We went over to visit "Uncle" Raymond, and his impressive array of equipment.

We went to the parade in downtown Orrville.

We went to the beach at Charles Mill Lake.

The kids got lots of tractor rides on and behind Grandpa's lawn tractor.

Uncle Sid and Aunt Karen came over.

We had a cheese tasting at Heini's of Berlin.  And ice cream.

Nana even came to visit while Papa and Uncle Devin went to the races at Norwalk.  She brought bubbles.  And we got to visit with our friends the B family.

Then we went to the carnival and fireworks in Orrville.  Andrew rode all by himself on a ride.
