Happy 14th Birthday Landan!!!

Landan turned 14 year old on July 7th! He did not have a big party this year. His dad and I got him an iphone a couple days before his special day. And on his actual birthday...I took the kids to Somethin Funn, then also invited some family and one of Landan's friends to dinner at Hacienda. He also had a couple of his friends spend the night. I think he had a good day. He is growing up, so big and tall, mature...such an amazing young man. I love you sweet boy!!!

Lorelle was excited to finally be tall enough to drive herself in the go-carts;)

Silly boys...

Happy 4th of July!!!

We just hung out at home on Monday...the actual 4th:) The kids played and we had family over for a cookout. Our neighbor puts on a GREAT firework show for our "back pond" families. Thanks Mike! I am SO thankful that my family and I live in a country with such Freedom. May God Bless the USA and all who keep us safe!!!

Our family had such an AMAZING weekend of celebration!!!

4th of July Weekend...Sunday:)

Sunday was a pool party day at our friends (and neighbor's house;) We were there late into the night and they were amazing hosts, keeping us all fed and thoroughly hydrated. I little TOO hydrated in my case...LOL! Let's just say... I didn't feel so well later that night or the next morning. I was reminded why I typically stick to red wine only. WOW! Besides that...we had a GREAT time! Three of my kiddos ended up spending the night even. Such a FUN day for all!

Thank you so much Hall Family!!!

4th of July Weekend...Saturday:)

We had a busy, FUN filled day! We started by taking our gang to the Winona Lake Park for some of the holiday weekend activities. They played in the blow-up, jumpy things; got balloon swords and hats; and the best part...spraying a real fire truck hose:) The big boys mostly enjoyed the homemade ice cream. Lance and I, the pulled pork barbeque sandwiches...ya know us Perry's like our food;) LOL!

The best kind of sword fight...with balloon swords;)
Nice hat Lorelle...

4th of July Weekend...Friday Evening:)

On the late afternoon of Friday, July 1st, I took my gang to Ft. Wayne. We went to Chuck E. Cheese for games and then to Red Robin for dinner. We wanted to get out of the house to let Lance nap...since he just returned from a looong few days of travel:( After we got home, we watched a movie and then drove out to some friend's house to watch firework. You put on one AMAZING show Dean!!!

Our gang...oops our picture taker cut Leytan off;( It WAS hard for her to see in the dark...

Proof that Leytan really was;)

Cool dude Levi...having a snack:)
