What A Week!

We just finished a week in Ohio and what a time it was! We were able to see lots of family and friends, and that is what made it such a great week. On the flip side, all of the running around took its toll on little Jack and he certainly let us know that he had had enough! Sometimes it is hard to remember that we have a little one amongst us.

The day after our arrival, Sunday, June 10th, we attended Todd's graduation fiesta. What an awesome time we all had! The kids spent the day jumping in a huge blow-up castle and playing with their cousins (does it get any better than that?!) and Allan and I spent the day catching up with all of Allan's family. We also played a few games of Blongo Ball and Corn Hole. We won't mention any of the winners' names.....It was just a great day filled with great family. And we can't even complain about the weather!
The graduate and his family. Watch out DeVry, here comes Todd!

Emma with her girl cousins. I think we need to have a chat about wearing skirts!

Aunt Debbie took the kids right to her house from the graduation party and Allan and I were able to have a late night (relative term!) with no kids! We then headed for the airport bright and early Monday morning. I dropped Allan off to spend the week in Indiana and I headed for the lake to pick the kids up from Aunt Debbie. Mom S. rode along with me, so we had lots of time to catch up. Once at Debbie's, we spent the day walking the beach and finding periwinkles, fishing and digging up trumpet vines (the outcome of the flowers will come in a later blog!). It was a great time and the kids, Will especially, were sad to leave.

Will tries out the skateboard - kind of!

Jack and Aunt Debbie are looking for lucky stones.

Can you tell the kids love Aunt Debbie and Grandma?!

Cousin Brad is the BEST!
