Birthday Parties!

Carolyn did a wonderful job organizing two birthday parties last week. Elizabeth celebrated her 9th birthday and Joey celebrated his 7th. Both celebrated with their close buds 🙂

This was a first for the two of them to have their own party with friends so it was interesting to hear what they wanted to individually do with their own party.

4th of July week at the cabin

We had the family up at the cabin for the entire week. Jen, Nix, and Stan joined us as well. Sinking boats (nobody trying to save us), canoeing with Mike, the parade, and lots of time in the water trying to stay cool are just some of the wonderful memories from the week. Great times were had by all in the extremely hot weather. I even buckled and we bought an air conditioner for the camper 🙂
