Silly, Stitches and Stuff


I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!





Here are some pics from the past week.





One of our family's favorite places to eat with the kids is the "Globe and Anchor" ....the kids call it the "Golden Ankle" :) I took some pics since this is probably the last time we will eat there before we move.












Daddy gets silly with the kids.
Ayden loooooves his daddy! He likes to squeeze daddy's face and say "chubbo chubbo dada" :)




Brian had duty on the 4th, so I took the kids to the "Americafest"...Anjolie took this just loooovely pic of me driving..and driving...it took a little bit for me to find it, and when we did, they had a full security area to search bags, walk through metal detectors and check ID cards before entering since it was at the Airforce flight-line. It was quite the adventure getting through that with the 4 little ones. I think I was ready to just call it a day at that point ha!




See that little guy sitting in the pic down there? If you look closely, you can see his busted little lip. He fell at the playground this past week and had to have 3 stitches under his lip, poor little guy had to have an IV and be put under sedation for it...but ANYWAY...that was a whole other ordeal that I would just rather not revisit...





It turned out to be soooooooo sweltering hot at the Americafest that I just got the kids a treat once we got through the whole security ordeal and we left....their faces were flushed with heat within moments of arriving. I was afraid of what would happen if I let them go jumping around the bounce house in that heat! There wasn't too much complaint from the kids about leaving, I think they were kinda glad-especially when they felt the AC in the van!
After taking some much needed naps, we went to a BBQ which was alot of fun...I love times of fellowsip. We were able to watch fireworks right from this park which was across the street from my friends house. We all really had a good time. Sorry you could not be there honey-we sure missed you :(

Love the pics!! Thank you. The Globe & Anchor is your favorite?? What happened to Bambohe? ;)
I've been praying for poor little Ayden... it's not as bad as I had imagined.
I missed getting to talk to you last week. I'm going to call you next week for sure; before your phone gets turned off for the move!!

LOL...our favorite to eat at WITH the kids :) Thank you so much for praying for him...his stitches look great on the outside...because it appears to be all the way through (or cut in on both sides)the inside looks really bad and still bleeds a bit :(

I don't think we will turn our phone off until the 21st. I look forward to talking with you Pam...I sure miss you *sniff*

Poor Ayden's lip. =(

Sounds like you had a great day inspite of a trip to the ER. Its tough to usher three little ones in and out of places by yourself. I'm sure its not any easier with four. Keep up the good work. You're a trouper.
