Our Last Day Together

"Outside the open window, the morning air is all awash with angels."

Monday was our last day with the Dumpling and the Enchilada before they flew back to the UAE.  We asked Troy and Camryn to spend it with us.  In the morning, we went to the park to play.  The kids love it there and always have a good time.  The kids wanted Troy to do everything with them, push them on the swings, catch them on the slide, carry them on his shoulders, hold his hand etc!  Camryn did a good job of sharing her daddy.

When we were done at the park, we went to McDonalds for takeout and went to the creek for a picnic and swimming.  That was fun also and will be another post.

On the way to the park.

She loved the slide.

The swings are always her favorite.

He likes to climb.

Sharing something, I'm not sure what!
All 3 climbing the wall.

Fun At Pap's Pond

"In summer, the song sings itself."

The kids love going to my parents house.  They have a pond and the kids are entertained by it for hours.  He catches tadpoles, crayfish, frogs and salamanders for them to play with.  Each creature has their own bucket and the kids love holding them.  After a while, we need to tell them to give the poor things a rest.  When the water starts to get warm, all the creatures are put back in the pond to wait for the next time everyone comes.

We had a nice day.  It was a combination picnic for Carl and J.  Carl just retired from teaching and J was leaving for  the UAE.  He was home for 2 months doctoring for severe back problems.  The doctor finally released him and we are glad that he is better, but that meant he needs to get back to work.  We hope to see him soon, but it was hard saying goodbye again.

Happy Birthday Sunshine!

"Today, fill your cup of life with sunshine and laughter."
On Saturday, we celebrated Camryn's second birthday.  The weather cooperated for most of the day. It was warm so everyone got to do some swimming.  The rain didn't come until later in the afternoon. All the kids have so much fun together and Camryn was so excited for her party.  Her favorite gift by far, was the box of Squinkies!  I wish I would have taken a picture of her face when she opened that package.  Her eyes got SO BIG!! 

Bambi, is one of her favorite characters.
Her favorite meal, ham and macaroni and cheese.
Opening presents with Daddy.
The chocolate Bambi cake was so good!
Love you Sunshine and hope you had a memorable day.
