Highlights from the Summer of 2014

Here is my list of highlights from our Summer of 2014 (in no particular order).

Daily bike rides with Levi. I called him my "biking buddy" and we would bike around the big block for his exercise (one of his daily chores). I got to do this with him almost every morning of the summer.

Watching Spencer swim against 17 and 18 year old boys who looked like grown men and NOT being one bit afraid. His coach thought because he swam with the older group that he must be 12 so she signed him up to swim in the relays with boys 12-18. He is one brave boy!!

Levi got to choose to cook order pizza every week because as a family it was our goal to try as many different places that serves pizza and decide which was our favorite. We didn't take a picture every week but it was really fun to try so many different pizza restaurants.
