Lilly's Birthday Party

Today we got help Lily's friend, Lilly, celebrate her birthday at a local petting farm.  The girls got to pet goats, chickens, and horses.  
They got to feed the goats their food out of an ice cream cone.
They got to gather eggs in the chicken coop.
After a lot of persuasion, I finally got Lily to ride the pony and she loved it!  I tried my hardest but never could get Eden on the horse.
Eden stuck with the smaller animals like the kittens and was as happy as can be!  It was a fun afternoon celebrating a sweet friend.

Great Wolf Lodge

We celebrated Addison's 10th birthday with a fun night at Great Wolf Lodge.  The kids had a blast at the water park together.  Luckily Uncle Jon was there to take them on all the big slides!
Addison loved being surprised with a cake, presents, and a birthday sign on the door.
Happy Birthday Addison! We hope you had a great birthday weekend!

Hawaiian Falls

The City of Mansfield had a family night at Hawaiian Falls last night.  Uncle Jon was working so Emily asked if we wanted to join them for a night at the water park.  The kids had a great time!  Since it was only open for city employees and their families, there were no lines and the kids got to go on the slides over and over again without any waiting.  
They rode until it was so dark they couldn't see the slides!  It was such a fun evening and I hope we will get to go again next year!

August Little Things

It seemed like we blinked our eyes and summer was over!  We had a great summer and first two weeks of school.  Here are some of our August little things.

We took advantage of our last day before I had to start inservice and used our free passes at Pirates Cove.  Uncle Jon brought the cousins and we had a fun day in the sun!
We met up with Aunt MerMer, Uncle Craig and Holland for dinner and then ended the night with popsicles from Steel City Pops!

While Emily and I were at inservice, the kids enjoyed playing with the cousins at Granna's house.
Eden enjoyed helping her sweet friend, Reagan, celebrate her birthday at Buffalo Nickels arcade.
Lily had a great First Day of First Grade!
Our PE teacher was so sweet to send me a few pictures of Lily at PE during the first week of school.

Me and Parker on Grizzly Pride Day.  I was shocked that he wanted to wear a blue tutu to school!
All 4 of us showing our Grizzly Pride!
We enjoyed a night out with the clinic at the Railroaders game.  It's always fun to spend time with the other doctors and their spouses.
August is over and I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures that September will bring!

Back to School 2017

It's hard to believe it's already time for school to start again!  We had Meet the Teacher on Monday and our first day of school today.

Parker is starting 5th grade and will have two teachers this year- Mrs. Holland for Homeroom/Language Arts/Social Studies and Mrs. Thames for Math/Science.  It's hard to believe that this is his last year of elementary school.
Eden is starting 3rd grade and will have Mrs. Click.
And Lily is starting 1st grade and will have Mrs. Brightwell.
The kids were all excited to get to school this morning and they all came home excited from their first day of school!  I know it's going to be a great year for all of us!
