Dirtbikes!

We took our kiddos to ride their dirtbikes on Saturday afternoon. They have been riding for several years now...Landan started on the 50 that Liam and Levi ride now;) Lorelle rides a 70 and the big boys each have a 140. All the kids except Lilyan LOVE to ride! Lilyan can do it and has rode, but she just doesn't enjoy it like her siblings do. She brings her 3DS or just watches with me:) I don't go every time Lance takes the kids, so when I do...I try to get pictures and videos. See below...

Camp With An IMPACT @ Camp Adventure!!!

Landan and Leytan both spent a week at church camp this summer. It was called Camp With An IMPACT...and it is at Camp Adventure:) This was Landan's 3rd year and Leytan's 1st year. They both had a BLAST!!! Leytan came back different...I remember Landan came back from his first year very much the same way. He said they had some VERY deep discussions at camp;) I am so thankful for WCC and the children's programs they offer for my kiddos. SO blessed!!!

Unfortunately, I couldn't locate many pictures of Leytan online but did find quite a few of Landan and his cabin mates:) Thank you Lord for being a part of my children's lives and loving them even MORE than I do!!!

Afternoon of FUN!

We hung out at our neighborhood beach one afternoon. The kids had a BLAST playing in the water, boat and on the swing set. They even caught a toad:) It's the simple things in life...

Leytan took turns giving the kids boat rides out to the fountain to get sprayed:)

Lilyan my little toad lover... Lorelle screams and won't get near them. LOL!



Levi...my littlest monkey;)

Playing Gaga ball on the trampoline... a FAVORITE since the boys returned from camp:)
God is GOOD!!!

Tarzan!!!

I also took the littles to see the musical Tarzan at the Wagon Wheel Theatre while the bigs were at church camp:) They really enjoyed it! We had to go to Walmart to buy the Disney movie on DVD so that they could watch and compare afterward;) We are so blessed to have a such a wonderful little playhouse here in Warsaw, IN. They really put on some great shows that our family can enjoy and see together:)

We had an ice cream lunch before the matinee...

Happy Father's Day!!!

Father's Day was a relaxing one this year:) I prepared dinner in the morning...shish-kabobs (sausage, steak and chicken with veggies;) cheesy potatoes... and thanks to Amy and Eva for the yummy deserts. We took our gang to the pool and then a cookout with our dads in the evening. We are SO blessed to have so many GREAT fathers/grandfathers in our lives...Our Heavenly Father, Chuck, Ken and my kiddos father, Lance:) We LOVE you all!!!
