Whew! I need to get back in the game:0) I've been off my blogging game since the weather has gotten nice! I've really got my work cut out for me. Miss Vaeh loves to go "owside". It really makes it difficult with her being on lasix, I have to watch her sun exposure.

This past weekend, however, Mommy was busy helping out with wedding decorating & flowers. I was asked to help my Mom & her sisters out with their weekend... 3 weddings! So, Daddy was in charge of entertaining the twosome on Saturday. So, knowing their love of the "owside", parks, & slides... they headed to one of the local elementary school's playground. They LOVED it!! Miss Vaeh is really beginning to keep pace with her older sister! Here's an overview of their day...



They were both tuckered out by that evening! Even with being soooo tired, Vaeh was still asking to go "owside" as she was drifting off to sleep:0) Then yesterday, our cousins came in for a fun summer day. Leslie (12), Jake (11) & Josh (8) usually spend the days at their house, but occasionally come in to hang out with the girls & I.

The boys really are in love with mowing lawns, so it worked out yesterday that my yard work got done & the boys were ecstatic to mow ;0) Leslie helped out, too! Then of course, you have to reward hard work with ice cream, so off we headed to the local dairy bar (yum-yum). Then I had the bright idea of going swimming. My in-laws have an above ground pool in their back yard, so we had supper & headed over to get into the water. The kids had a great time! Vaeh lasted about 15 minutes before turning all sorts of shades of blue, purple, & everything in between! The only bad part was that I forgot the camera through the whole day :0( You would think that I would have learned by now, but noooo! Maybe someday my brain will catch up with the rest of me ;o)

Hope you're all enjoying your summer! If you wouldn't mind keeping a couple of our friends in your prayers... Mr. Elijah is scheduled for surgery this Thursday. He'll have to be in the hospital for a couple of days, I think, so keep him & his parents in your prayers! Also, Krista is expecting her second son soon! Amber & her family have taken on another little foster child. He's a precious little guy who's battling for his life in the NICU. Please keep these & all of our friends in your prayers!

What fun at the park! The video of Vaeh going down the slide is great. I love that she was saying "owside" even as she was falling asleep. :) How funny.
