Mari's Visit

This past week we were excited to have Mari visit for a few days! Unfortunately Mike is in New York working and was unable to join Mari and the rest of us but we certainly did think about him often. Sunday, after Drew's nap we packed up the car and headed to Craig's Cruisers for an afternoon of mini golf, bumper boats and a frog hopping ride. The greens were well kept and perfect for our crew who couldn't resist dropping their ball into certain holes that would then shoot the ball out onto another adjacent green over and over and over and over..... again! The bumper boats not only collided with each other but they had a great squirt gun attached to the top that the girls got to shoot at the opposing bumper boat. The day ended with the girls riding on the 25 foot hydraulic frog hopper ride. The ride bounced them up to the top (25 feet up) and then "hopped" up and down several times until finally coming back to rest at ground level. I'm not sure what they enjoyed more from the frog hopper - kicking off their flip flops at us or the actual ride. Either way they both loved it!

I"m a little late posting this (ok, really late) but as the saying goes "better late than never", right? On July 20 Kami turned 6! That same day we hosted the tile mural party (see earlier postings) so she had an amazing birthDAY. Later, after everyone had left the tile mural party we went out for pizza with my cousin Jamie & Emma, who were visiting from Tennessee. The girls all dressed up in dress-ups so they could be fancy. Later that night we opened gifts. We had a family birthday party on the following Sunday. Kami chose a Hannah Montana birthday cake (because it had a cool headphone thingy on top). Thanks to all who helped us celebrate this great day for this great girl!
