Fourth of July

As many of you know, the Engstroms had a very fun but very crazy July!  We are glad to be home and back to normal life, and we’re excited to show off some of our adventures! 

We started off July with a trip to the Lake of the Ozarks to celebrate the 4th of July with OTown’s family.  Here are some highlights (in no particular order):

GTB’s first trip to McDonald’s (incidentally, we found out that GTB does not like hamburgers but does like chicken nuggets…who knew?):

We were so excited to see our family and GTB had such a blast playing with his cousins

Team Laible:


OTown and Bella:

GTB wrestiling Jack:

GTB loved playing with cousin Mackenzie

And Abbie and Bella, too!

It didn’t take long for GTB to learn to love his lifejacket and the boat! 

He and Grandma Buzzy had tons of fun playing in the sandbox

And in baby pool:

GTB drove the waverunner (and only fell off once…oops!)

but when Aunt Morgan took him for a ride, he promptly fell asleep!

And went on his first tube ride:

And he loved helping Grandpa Mahlon drive the boat:

We had fun playing on the rafts in the lake:

We made brownies:

The fireworks were AMAZING and we had fun seeing them by boat and setting them off ourselves.  Our cousin Tanner did a great job of organizing the biggest firework display the Laible family has ever done! 

We had a fantastic time and were so thankful for the beautiful weather, the gorgeous scenery and the time with family!
