Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

Lauren’s an old pro when it comes to riding the bus, but Jake and Beth had their first real ride to school today. It was a very sad day for momma.

Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle Mike and a Lot of Steak

Monday, August 6th, 2007

We had Grandpa, Grandma and Uncle Mike all here this weekend. To celebrate we had “steak for four” which turned out to be just enough steak to feed about eight people. After gorging ourselves we walked around the restaurant and looked at the baby ducks.

Kelly and Grandma

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

Kelly and Grandma came to help watch the kids this week. It’s been very busy for everyone. They’ve been to the zoo, out on a boat, to the science museum, jumpy place, swimming and lots more. They leave tomorrow and the kids are pretty sad about that.
