FYI #5

If your dog gets sprayed by a skunk at 11 o'clock at night, dawn dish soap does a pretty good job of getting the stench out!

Oh Deer!!

Chris and I were driving in a neighborhood near our house, and he says he just saw a deer run across the road. Then as we came down the hill, this is what we saw:

There was a herd of deer!! Keep in mind, this is just a neighborhood in the middle of town! It was so neat to see all the deer so close, and there were even 4 baby deer!

Happy Birthday to Emma and Marathon!!

Okay, Okay, I'll admit I'm late on this. Emma's Birthday was July 19! She is officially 2 years old! Marathon is officially 1 year old! We're not positive on Marathon's birthday but the shelter guessed she was born in July, so we celebrate the same day. Don't they look like twins?!

T-ball Games!

While I was in St. Joe, I was able to take in 2 of Elijah's t-ball games. He is actually pretty good! The games have 3 innings, and usually by the 3rd most of the team was playing in the dirt....but none the less, he did great!!

Well, he may not have a career as an outfielder, but we'll work on that!

Enjoying his post game snack!
I can't believe Eli is big enough to be playing tball, but I couldn't be more proud! In case you're wondering, his tshirt is the smallest size possible!! Pretty sure he is the cutest tball player ever!

Happy 4th of July!!

I know, I know- I'm a little late! But better late than never! We had a great 4th of July with all our family! We started with lunch at my grandparents, with my family. We ate a great lunch of sandwiches and other picnic-like food, then headed out for some fireworks!!

Lijah and I lighting up some smoke bombs--one of my favorites!!

My cousin Sarah and I. She looks just like I did at that age!

We had to fight and get our mom and grandma involved, but we finally got a group pic of Alli, Tyler, and me!! Tyler was a pain, but if Grandma says so, he has to pose for the pic!

Next, we headed over to Chris' mom's for dinner. Our Uncle Jamie and Aunt Darcy were in town from St. Louis (along with their daughter!). We had a great dinner, then headed out for more fireworks!! Chris and I heading out for some more firwork fun!

Maddie with her sparklers!

Chris and Andres- probably plotting something!

Finally done with the fireworks, so we headed inside for some great desserts!

We had a great time being home, but we are happy to be back in West Virginia! I do realize I've been slacking with the blog--sorry! I will be posting more from our visit home soon!

A Night Out

Tonight a few Camp Rainbow friends came up to St. Joe for the evening. We went to dinner then took in our first Mustangs baseball game. It was great to see some of my camp friends before I have to go back to West Virginia!! Abby and me at the game!

Lauren and Ashley at the game. These girls are amazing!

Sarah and I at the game....also amazing!!
As I was looking at these pics I realized that all of these girls started as counselors in my cabin at Camp Rainbow! It's so great to see them become such great leaders at camp and also become such good friends! I am so blessed to be involved with such a great organization and group of people!
Our friends Derek and Aaron also came, but somehow they evaded the camera! We had a great night that ended with ice cream....really, does it get any better? Oh, and the Mustangs won!
