Cooling off on a beautiful day!

We have been having some beautiful weather!  

Toby was so funny....he wanted his mom to let go of him so he could stick his head in the water!

At least he knows how to hold his breath!

Ready Mom?

Toby loved all the cannon balls and splashes!

That is quite the look Toby!

So sweet...

My favorite picture!

Love the anticipation for the next splash!
So much fun and so thankful for the beautiful summer!

A couple in our church had a bonfire all planned for after anniversary Sunday.  However, they ended up being sick and weren't even able to make it to church let alone host a party.  :(  So they canceled, but since everyone had already been planning on it, Doug and I talked about it and decided to host it at our place.  I'm so glad we did!  We had so much fun and a great time of fellowship.  We had kids, dogs, and a lot of friends.  

We can't wait to do it again!

Anniversary Sunday

Last Sunday we celebrated 34 years of Calvary Bible Church!  Not only that but 34 years with Pastor Jenkins!  That is just crazy to me.  We had an awesome day with candy (the kids favorite part), tons of specials, and a fellowship dinner.  

Can't wait till next year!

A little bit of a science project!

While we were out in Buffalo visiting family a couple weeks ago, we stopped at my cousin's toy store.  The girls spent some of their birthday money and picked up a few things.  We have been waiting to do the science projects they picked up.  Finally the day came and we started them!  Grandma was here to help us get started ;)

Marissa got Magic Rocks....

So cool!

Madalyn is dyeing and growing crystals!

Madalyn's aren't officially done yet.  Right now they are mushy and we are waiting for them to dry  out and finish changing color!  

If anyone is looking for some awesome gifts for a birthday, or Christmas, Jesse's Toy Box is an awesome place to check out.  They have a website to shop online and carry a lot of great fun brands like Melissa and Doug, Lego's, Calico Critters, Fisher Price and so much more.  They are a Christian, family run business and for me its awesome knowing that I'm buying from a place like that!  Check them out!

More messes

What a goofball!

For the show your stuff portion of the show and the costume class, both dogs each got a stuffed dog bone.  So we ended up with 4 of them.  I put 3 of the up and left one out.  Of course I was not surprised that it didn't last long!

Now that the mess is made, she is wore out and ready for bed ;)
