Hayden breaks his arm

 Hayden got taken out in some rough play at a soccer tournament this weekend and ended up with a little break in his arm. He'll have to wear a cast for about 4 weeks. He should get it off just in time for the next tournament!
He chose orange so that it would match his soccer uniform :) Go Slammers!

Mesa 4th of July

We had a watermelon eating contest with the kids in Erin's backyard. Brody surprised everyone by being the littlest but fastest!

When it got dark we did a few 'safe and sane' fireworks in the street out front. I don't know how safe and sane it actually was because the wind was blowing and there were lots of dry trees around!

Dessert was chocolate fondue! Mmm, Mmm good!

 The next day was our last day in Mesa. The kids made tie-dye shirts and we celebrated Wendi's birthday. Then we got on a plane to head home. We sure had a great time in Arizona!

Cousin Fun

 The boys had fun playing video games from the top bunk with Maddox and Thatcher
 This is what I got when I asked them to smile
 Then Thatcher wanted to make a silly face for me
 The rest of the kids were happy to play with baby Kate and she loved the attention
Zoe was in heaven to get to hold Kate until she fell asleep

Grandpa Orville and Grandma JoyLee

 It was great to get to visit with my Grandma and Grandpa in Mesa. It's so neat for the kids to get to know their Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa! We are so blessed to have them healthy and still here with us into their 90's.
Roxy the dauchshund is such a sweetie too.
