Wild Rivers!!

Eldon, Nathan, and I got passes to Wild Rivers this year. It is waterslide heaven for these two. The above picture is what I usually see all day...me chasing them with my camera. They are SO CUTE...I could just eat them up!!
Okay...the race is on...Nathan is on the left and Eldon on the right...on your mark...get set...
I couldn't tell who hit the water first, but Eldon made a bigger splash! It was a fun day. We plan to go again this week, or next!

Birthday for Nathan...AGAIN!!

Okay, one last hurrah for Nathan's birthday!! We had Grammy, Grampy, Grandma Groff, Doug and Kenzie, and Diane and Larry here for dinner yesterday. It ended up to be a beautiful day outside and we had yummy Carne Asada and Pollo Asada!! I know, we have had that for many occassions this year, but it is so good, easy and everyone loves it. At least I think they love it, no one tells me if they don't like my food. Look at how cool this picture turned out with the smoke from the candles!
Grampy celebrated his birthday also. Nathan LOVES his Grampy. They text each other every night...isn't that cute!? I don't know what they say, Nathan probably tells Grampy how mean and strick I am because I make him brush his teeth and do his homework!
Our cousin Diane and her new husband Larry!! We love to have them over. They like coffins and ghosts and stuff like that. Larry also celebrated HIS birthday! Happy Birthday Cuz!!
Grandma Groff with the boys! Doesn't she look great! She forgot her glasses here and Nathan and I brought them to her and had lunch with her today. It was so fun!
Happy Birthday to my "BABY!" I love you Nater Tater Punk!!

Yesterday we had a pool party in the back yard for Nathan, and it was RAINING! IN JULY!! The boys still swam, played my stupid party games, ate pizza and cake, and we had a pinata!

Here are all the kids after the pinata broke...mass chaos!! It was a fun party with 16 little boys and a LOT of water!!
Happy Birthday Nater Tater!! I love you so much.

Fourth of July ~ Take 2

This is the inside of Bret and Tanya's barn...pretty nice, huh? This Kansas girl has never seen another barn quite like this!! We played games...
The Meacham side of the family. Grandma Beth is 92 years old...doesn't she look beautiful??
Larry, Tanya, and Mom...Tanya is standing on her tippy toes...don't let her fool you!
Yummy cupcakes. I have been making a lot of cupcakes lately, they're cute, easy, and everyone likes them!
The view of the barn from the house. This is all of their property. You can see Larry and Kyle in the left bottom corner playing horseshoes. Kyle had to play with his left arm...and I think he still won!!
My favorite girl and my favorite doggy!!! God Bless my Family and God Bless America. We are grateful for the soldiers who work day and night to protect us.
