The end of July

On July 20th Owen was finally Baptised. It was a great day with all the family. He is blessed to have such great God parents Dorothy (my aunt) & Mike (Joe's longtime pal).

Last week we went to the Holiday Inn water park thanks to some anonymous free tickets, which for our family is a huge deal. That would have otherwise been a $100 trip. The kids had a blast and we even got Isaac down the water slide 3 times. He is not big on the thrill rides but, he did it after much pressure. Avril made friends with any other child that got within 3 feet of her and even Owen had fun kicking his legs in the water. We also had a free dinner at the new Sonic which I must say had the best fast food ever.

This past weekend we went to our friends parents house on Pleasant Lake in Annandale and had a great time. There where a total of 11 children over there and I can't tell you how well they played together. You could barely tell that there where that many of them running around. We did some tubing and Joe tried to wake board but failed this time. My brother said it took him 22 times to finally get up on it so Joe's got about 10 more trys to go. I will be trying next time. I am a little nervous because if you fall on those you typically get pulled onto your face which doesn't sound to pleasant. But I guess you have to try everything once right.

Last but not least we said our "goodbyes" to grandma last night. She has been here for 3 1/2 months and is going back to Arkansas. I think she has had her stuff packed for a week. It's not that she doesn't like being here she is just tired with all the excitement all the time. She celebrated her 75th birthday this June but as you can see she still thinks she's 5. Love you Grandma!!!
