One little niece asks her uncle Joseph... and he always does what they ask.....

Cate and Joseph sitting in the shade....

Mady wants someone to take her swimming in the big pool ...

Uncle Jo Jo gives her the rest of his slurpie and she keeps working him to take her swimming...

Then guess who got her way with Uncle Joseph and his slurpie too. It was funny to watch how Mady with her charm of being 2 almost 3 and to see Joseph who has such a hard time saying no to them.

Banana Splits for dinner wrapped up a great day.....

Mady is all of the above like her bib says.

Abby and Milo home - Monday will be 2 months. Doing so well too. 

Some new sand in the sandboxes and they played all day....

 Ate some popcorn for the salt fix we all needed after so much sugar but dinner was sort of healthy with a banana right ?

Our yg. adults came home today from their retreat, the weather has gotten nice again, and we still have one more day to this holiday wknd...I am headed to IKEA tomorrow for a bunk bed since we will need one more bed for our new daughter in Ghana....Anyone who loves to shop at IKEA and eat there they are having their special ...if you buy 150.00 dollars worth of merchandise you can eat up to 150.00 for free. So that is where some of us will be tomorrow for part of our day.

Wheels for Andrew finally

Watching the man put together and adjust Andrew's wheelchair.

Andrew finally got his wheelchair and he and we could not be happier about it. It is fitted to him and he  is a more content little guy when he is sitting in it. We had used a loaner one for a few weeks to see if he would like it and then decided to go ahead with it after we saw how much more happier and able to join us at family activities when he is in it. It has been a blessing to have it and we are thankful for another way to give Andrew some happiness and peace.

When the weather is this hot there is only one thing to do.......

Our pools are now officially open. With the temperature almost 100 the cool water was actually refreshing. Of course the kids loved it. They had been begging for days to swim and finally it was ready. We are so ready for summer.
