Kaela Turns 7

It was Kaela's birthday this week. She turned 7. It's hard to believe this tall, beautiful little thing is growing up so fast. Here's a pic with Grandma Barbara, who came bearing gifts!!
We kidnapped Kaela and took her to Sweet Tomatoes (restaurant of her choice, not ours) for a birthday dinner.
So happy about her soft serve icecream. I think the solution to all children's worries is unlimited access to a soft serce icecream machine!
Grandma Shirley brought the birthday loot! Always a favorite amongst the kids.
Grandma Linda called and told Kaela to check the mail. There she found one more pot of God!! Thanks, Grandma and Grandpas. We love you!!

July 4th 2008 - A photo series

Photo series continued

Have you ever gone blogging and then said to yourself, "where have I been?" I love to see some of the creative blogs out there, but I am continually amazed at how creative and experienced some of these bloggers are. I look at their links list and think, "look how many people they know that blog!" So, this is a thanks to all you bloggers out there that have inspired me!! I continue to learn and be inspired by you!!

July 4th we went to the Stadium of Fire. It was fun, but I think the kids were pretty tired from sleeping over at Grandma Bs the night before. Miley Cyrus was a bit of a dissapointment (with all that hair swinging she did.) The sound in the stadium wasn't very good. Maybe it was the wind or something. We'll give you the benefit of the doubt Miley!
Oops, poo gwang le Mom!
This part was pretty cool!
The fireworks were great and the stadium really seemed liked it was on fire--all the smoke!!
