Camp Linden

Well we have made it home from camp and are starting to get back in the routine until Jon leaves tomorrow for GA. But he will be home on Friday and it will be our first weekend at home in about a month! So we can't wait. Neways, Camp was great. It was a very nice place and we had no weather issues. It only rained at night so it was great! One boy was saved on Friday night so it made the whole trip worth it! It was different being without my little boys but they survived and were so glad to see mommy and daddy. I can't wait till next year!

Well we are finally back home after a short but long trip. We left on Wednesday about 4 in the afternoon since Jon couldn't seem to break away from work any earlier. We were headed to Broken Arrow, OK. I have 2 aunts and an uncle that live in the Tulsa area and Jon has one aunt that lives there, so we were going to break up the haul to Kansas by stopping in OK to spend the night and see family that morning before heading to KS. We arrived about 11 and Cooper was still awake, I don't know why, and was full of himself. I guess being able to sleep in a hotel is very exciting when you are 3! Finally about midnight we all got settled and in bed. Thursday morning we met Aunt Julie, Jon's aunt, for breakfast and had a great time visiting with her a Ralph. Then on to Aunt Cindy's, my aunt, to visit with her, Ford, and Isabella. Of course after that we had to go to the mall for Mom to buy her OU stuff. Then around nap time we headed to KS. It was a short trek which was very nice and we arrived there that evening. I love being with all of my Grandma, aunts and cousins. Cooper and Colton go to meet there cousins for the first time and they both had a blast. Grandma Lawyer is turning 90 on the 29th of July so her entire family was there to celebrate. What a great life she has had. Our pastor talked about family this morning and after being there with my whole family made me think of what a great legacy my Grandma is leaving, everyone there a Christian and she is an amazing woman! I wish we lived closer. We did everything from playing cards, darts, pool, playing basketball out in the rain, eating Grandma's pies, which are incredible, and just had an awesome time with everyone. I hope its not another 4 years before we do that again! Well we left about 9:30am on Saturday to drive the whole way home. We stopped to eat with my Aunt Carolyn, my Mom's youngest sister, and 2 of her children in OK and then continued home. We ended up in our driveway about 10:45 Saturday night. VERY LONG day but the boys were great in the car and we all had a great time. Now Jon and I leave on Friday to head to Camp Linden for Kidz Kamp!

Memphis Redbirds

On Thursday night we had free tickets to the Memphis Redbirds baseball game. I think it had been about 3 years since Jon and I had been to a game. We went with some friends from church and had a great time. They had a fireworks show after the game for the 4th and it was very nice to enjoy a night out without kiddos...thanks Grandad and CiCi!

Food, Fellowship, & Fireworks

On Sunday night we had our annual church wide get together for the 4th of July with food, fun and fireworks. Cooper had been waiting all week to get to see them! We had a great time hanging out with all our friends from church and Colt was definately ready to get home to his bed but the fireworks started about 10 after 9 and Cooper was jumping up and down with pure joy as they started to light up the sky. Not 2 minutes into it he turns around to me with complete horror on his face, screaming crying because he was scared! I have know idea how he could go from one extreme to the next in a matter of minutes but he did so Jon had to take him inside the church to watch through the window! Colt just stared into the sky with his jaw dropped, not a care in the world. It was a fun night but hopefully next year will be better! Here are a few pics from it.
