Finishing up July

I already wrote about our lightning adventures in July. Here are some photos from the rest of the month. The first half of July was pretty much ruined by the lightning fiasco. Our next problem of the month came when we tried to install sod at the house. Kyle roto-tilled the soil in preparation for laying the sod.  But then it rained and rained and rained.  It rained so much that the sod couldn't be cut at its source. It took another 4 days before we had the sod, and by that the top soil in our back yard had firmed up again. Some heavy duty hand raking had to be done first. We also had hoped to have someone to watch Logan during the sod install, but that didn't work out. The weekend prior we had taken Logan to urgent care as he had a weird red spot on his torso that looked like it might have been from a recluse spider. During the 3 hours of sitting in urgent care, Logan got 3 more of those marks. The doctor thought it could be chicken pox. Since Logan had been partially vaccinated, he ended up having a very week case of it (assuming it really was chicken pox). We decided that we better isolate Logan just in case. That meant no grandparents to watch him while we installed the sod. It also meant missing 1 of the 2 weeks of swimming lessons. All in all, July wasn't the greatest month. Kyle was also furloughed, but for us it was nice to have Kyle home an extra day each week. Enough sad stuff.  Let's get on to the photos.

Testing out some new trucks at the water fountain at the outdoor mall.

We pulled this toy out of the garage so that our new trucks had something to ride on. Our friend Suzi was sweet enough to pass it on to Logan when her kids were done with it. Logan loves it.

Here is Logan waiting for the big garbage truck. That is his favorite Monday morning activity.

Here is the only picture I got from our swim lessons. Logan wouldn't do much in class, but he would come home and blow bubbles in the bath tub. He would also kick his legs when the teacher wasn't looking. Needless to say, we didn't pass swim lessons this year. Didn't help that we missed a whole week due to chicken pox.

Another bright part of the month: for a few days we had this mom and her little chick in our back yard.

A quick tractor ride at Lowe's while mommy grabs more materials for her endless list of projects.

Here are some of the things Logan said in July: Towel, chip, ketchup, daddy get up (this has become a common saying in the morning), thank you, pumpkin, come on, off, big bite, cherries, upside down, I love you (melts your heart), raisins, yummy in my tummy, Betty, Dewey, Jay, Keith, Chris (the names of his grandparents).

He also learned to roll over and over again across the floor.
