Happy 12th B-day

Today Samantha turned 12 years old!

Here is Samantha when I dropped her off at Camp Funshine (she was a PA at the camp all week long...that means she was a leader's helper).

Here are the kids cakes in my cart when I stopped at Costco before we headed to Amazon for their combined b-day party.

Samantha, Emily and MJ at the b-day party tonight.

Olympic Trial Art

I was blessed to have both of my G'ma's visit in the middle of June to the beginning of July.

While G'ma Betty and I were out driving around we came across these sculptures in a local park. There were probably about 8 or 9 of these stick track and field sculptures.

More from Friday June 27th

Nike gave out some cool prizes. They gave the kids a drawstring backpack with a ball and pump in it (model below by Samantha)

Cheetah and Olympic Trials

Friday June 27th was a fun packed day.

In the afternoon the kids and I went into Jay's office because they had a special guest-> a Cheetah from Wildlife Safari. The cheetah got up the conference table and let all of us observe her while she snacked on raw meat and licked her handlers arm.

It was a great experience.


That evening we had the privilege of going to the Track & Field Olympic Trials. We sat in the suite and had a catered meal courtesy of Jay's work.

t was a hot evening but it was well worth it.

No more brace face

Yesterday Andrew got his braces removed. This is only phase one so later on he'll have full set of braces on.

Wow! His teeth turned out beautiful.


I wanted to do a split photo of his picture from last year and this year with his teeth fixed (but I couldn't figure it out). So, you'll have to refer back to this post to see the before.
