July's Past

Summer in Minnesota is always pretty busy. So this post is filled with a bunch of pictures. You have to fit everything in in the summer since they are the precious few nice days throughout the year.

July 2009
-We brought our sweet Paisley puppy home! She is so cute and tiny in these pictures.
-We celebrated the Fourth of July with a parade with Richard's brothers and some fireworks in Stillwater. That was the only year I did not go to my usual fireworks spot.
-We celebrated Richard's grandma's 70th birthday up in Superior. I had some pretty incriminating photos but I decided to spare him and his cousins. So these of Richard and I are all I will share.
-Richard's dad had major surgery down in Rochester so I went with to help with one of Richard's younger brothers. We had some quality time together.

July 2010
-We celebrated the Fourth of July with two parades. One with Richard's brothers and the other with my family. One of my good friends was in the parade too so I was excited to see her. You can kinda see her in the car below.
-Wedding planning galore included buying my wedding dress and bringing my friend with to see and asking my other friend if she would sing in our wedding.
- We went back up to Superior for an annual golf tournament that Richard's family hosts.
-Richard's dad had some major health complications that led him to be hospitalized for a very long time. I don't want to get into it too much out of respect. Richard and I helped out in the way we could best which was helping with his younger brothers. We spent a lot of time with them doing a lot of kid related things.

July 2011
-With only a month to go before the wedding there was not much going on besides wedding planning and working a ridiculous amount of hours.
-I also had my bachelorette party with my girlfriends. Since two of the six of us were under age, we kept it pretty low key. We went to a nice dinner and then a comedy club, where I got pulled onto stage. Then we went back to my sisters house for food presents and a few games.

July 2012
-We went tubing with my mom since she was a part of a boat rental program.
-We went to Milwaukee with Richard's family to celebrate his grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. The boys decided to sit at the bar most of the night where the bartender served them kiddie cocktails. While we were there we also went to the Milwaukee Zoo.
-We went with some friends to a drive in movie theater. At this one you can come early and cook hot dogs and burgers on a small grill and then they show three movies once the sun goes down. Worth every penny.

Whew. If you made it this far you deserve a medal. Gotta love summertime!
