Boat Ride

In June, we prepared to welcome the new interns at work.  To do this, we, of course, had a party; this party was at the yatch club. 
It was hot but nice to be out near the water. 
The kids had a blast running around and playing with other kids and the ducks.
  After eating, we got to go out on the boat.  We took a nice little long ride. 
Caleb enjoyed it but was ready to be out of his puddle jumper by the time we got back.  '
Kate actually fell asleep. 
She had a small fever when we got home but was better the next day (thankfully, since she had camp the next week!). 
We are blessed to have fun little activities like this associated with work. And thankful for kids who enjoy it and enjoy being with other people.

Trip to Grandparents

Over Memorial Day Weekend we made the trip to see David's family.  There are a LOT of people to see when we go and Caleb had previously not been a great car trip taker.  Bonus was that the night before we left, he woke up with a stomach bug.  However, he did great!

 And we had a wonderful visit.  One of the favorite things for the kids was the "water slide." 
Granddaddy set up a little slide and had it go into a kiddie pool.  They had a blast!  We also got to go to the Balloon glow with Grandmommie. 
We didn't really do it well.  We got there 2 minutes before the glow, it lasted about 10 minutes
 and then we (literally) spent 1.5 hours standing in line to get back to our car.  Kate fell asleep but Caleb was a trooper and stayed awake the whole time. 
Kate and Caleb enjoyed reading with Grammy and granddaddy a lot over the weekend. 
Then Sunday after church, we went to lunch and PetSmart with Grandmother.  The kids had such fun looking at all of the different pets. 
We left the next day and Caleb slept 4 out of the 5 hours home.  He did great! 
Kate stayed up there for the next two weeks for some Nana time, visiting and going to Kate-o's VBS.  We were glad when she got back!  It was the beginning of a BUSY summer!
