My friend, Michele, had her baby this week. Luke weighed nine pounds and 7 ounces and was born two weeks early. It is a good thing that he decided to enter this world a little early, for Michele's sake. He is the cutest baby and so sweet! I am so proud for Michele and Les! :)

Sims' Retirement Party

Emilie's parents both retired this year and they had a retirement party. It was lots of fun. Good drink, good food, old friends and new ones ;) We had a fantastic time! Thanks for the invite Kenneth and Janice, and I am especially looking forward to using that new beach condo! :)

Byne's New House

I had the most fun at Byne's house this weekend. It is really cool! He seemed so excited about this school year and that really puts my mind at ease. We tore down the girly wall paper and put up a Spiderman wallpaper border! Yes, he is twenty - going to be 21 in Oct. and still loves Spiderman. That is what makes him so GREAT! :) He still has roses painted around the windows, but we will fix that next visit! He seems settled and happy - what more can a parent ask for!

Back to School Party

We had a fantastic time at the lake this weekend! We did buy matching T-shirts (like we are in high school LOL)! Our back to school party wore us out, but I am so gald that we took full advantage of our LAST weekend of summer! School starts back tomorrow, so we are going to be super busy! I hope all of you have a fantastic school year!

YMCA Staff Party

Dalton worked at the YMCA this summer as a Camp Counselor and he loves his job. When they began to discuss where to have the end of the year party for the counselors, he volunteered to have it at our lake cabin. I really enjoyed getting to know all of the coworkers he has talked about all summer! They had a little awards ceremony and passed out personalized certificates to acknowledge the counselors hard work. Dalton was given the "Most ready to issue a beat down award". I am hoping that it means he has good discipline and NOT that he actually beat down the children! LOL These counselors played hard all day at the lake - I was worn out after just watching them. I am very proud of my Dalton for taking the initiative to get a job this summer and working so hard to make camp fun for his campers! Today was a GREAT day playing with a GREAT group of people!

Amy's Wedding

My family is very small. My Dad only has one sibling, a brother and he only had one son, John. Therefore, on my Dad's side John is my one and only cousin. John has two beautiful girls, Amy and Lisa. Amy married on Saturday, August 2nd! We are all so excited for her. She was a beautiful bride!
