Izzie new haircut, kids and jumping?

I have the cutest little girl in the world.
I have been making her some clothes lately and just finished this outfit.

I fell in love with the fabric when I saw it. Not everyone likes it.
I don't care.
I love it.
Olivia loves it.

She is quite the little diva.
I made it so the big flower can be removed.

On to more interesting things.
Izzie was miserable this year in the heat. We would spend hours brushing her and still didn't help.
Finally Troy and I just shaved her. Izzie was not very happy with me.
I cut her a few times. Just a few!
By the time we got to her head I just couldn't go on. I was almost in tears because I had hurt her.

We were at the park and I thought it would be fun to take pictures of everyone jumping.
It turned out to be fun and funny.
Rolling on the grass, laughing until your stomach hurts funny!
My wonderful husband just couldn't make it very far. If you will notice in the upcoming pictures that the children aren't very gifted with the ability to jump also.
Notice there are not pictures of me jumping.
That's because I can't.

Logan did pretty well.
Until I asked him to jump sideways.

Then this happened. He actually hurt himself.
Does that surprise anyone?
Olivia was trying so hard.

Soren was just down right hysterical!

Ella and Anna did pretty great.

Olivia was showing off her new outfit.

Here are my five wonderful kids who are absolutely driving me nuts this summer with their fighting.

I never fought with my siblings.

Right after I took these pictures all the dogs took off and the kids had to go chase them down.
Lot's of fighting and screaming ensued.
name calling.
I just sat back and watched it all.
I love my life!

Hello Harry.

Introducing the newest member of the Dunow bunch.
I am so in love with him.

He's a cockatiel and is just a few months old. Harry was hand fed since he was born so he is very tame. It took him a few days to get used to us and now is doing great.

Harry loves to be out of his cage. That means that the dogs have to be outside while Harry does his roaming.
Fred hates this.
Imagine that.

Troy was holding him and Harry fell asleep. So cute. Our family is loving having him. It's amazing how fast we can bond with one of Gods creatures. Thank you to the lovely lady who gave us this special gift.

Summer Flowers

This morning we all woke early to get our yard work done before it became to unbearable. This is what Olivia was doing.
The flowers in my yard have started to bloom, so I tried to get a few photo's of them.

The butterfly bush is so full right now.

It's attracted a bit more than butterflies.

I have some beautiful colors with my hollyhocks this year. Some new colors have popped up.

Love, love, love this pale pink.

My sunflowers are taller than the fence.

I love to sit on the porch with the kids and watch for hummingbirds. They love these. It's been so much fun for us this year watching our garden grow.
