ripley waterpark

We drove to Ripley yesterday to go to this waterpark we had heard about. It only cost $7 a person and has a big twisty slide. It was worth a drive and the money so we said next year we will try to go at least twice. Susan and I took all 7 of the cousins.

The big kids went down the big slide several times, I think Kyle went down about 30 times. 

I even went down about 5 times, I would have gone more if there was an elevator to the top

the only bad part is there is zero shade, so despite putting on sunscreen and even reapplying we all came home red as ripley tomatoes

riverboat ride

On Friday I took Kyle on a riverboat ride downtown, Kaitlyn decided last minute that she didn't want to go so she missed out on the fun (and saved me some money). We went with our friends the Paulo's.

We did several more things on our list this week. We only have one week left before I go back to work. :(

We made rice krispy treat suckers dipped in chocolate

went to Incredible Pizza

Kyle went to Ryan's birthday party at Skyzone

we made milkshakes

and put the bulletins out in the pews at church (July is our month)

We also went on a riverboat ride downtown but that deserves its own post!

Back in March Luke bought a 4-wheeler so of course John had to get one too. He bought one when we got back from Florida. Then for some reason Luke thought Ashley needed her own 4-wheeler so he go her this cute pink camo little one. She is still too little to ride on it (by herself anyway) so Kyle drives everybody around on it. All he talks about now is riding the 4-wheeler! He thinks he is king!

when he drives the girls he does pretty good about going slower, but when he is by himself he goes fast, see his hair blowing in the wind

needs more gas

Then Saturday night they went riding at the bottoms or somewhere like that

Um, what?!

The other night I went to upload something on my blog and get this message:

I about threw up! I had not deleted my blog. I checked my craft blog and got the same message. I have an email through Arkansas State that is run through google (same as my blog sign in) so every time I would go to sign in it would take me to ASU. I was so frustrated. I called Paula and she was able to log in as me on her computer and fix it. I think it must have had something to do with the fact that they were working on the ASU server and I guess that is what messed me up, that is the only thing I can figure out.

Thankfully it should all be good now

Summer fun week 7

Here is some other fun stuff we did this week. We are quickly running out of summer! Only two weeks left. :(

Kaitlyn left on Sunday for church camp, this is her 4th year to go. She loves it!

I took Kyle to the eye doctor, he sees fine (really well actually)

We went to see Brave with Jade and Peyton

We went to the zoo with Will. They fed the giraffe (they have really long nasty tongues), played in the water, and watched the sea lion show. 

There is a great story behind Will and Kyle climbing in this tree. 

We went to the children's museum on  Thursday with Eli.

Big Backyard

While Kaitlyn is away at church camp this week I am taking Kyle to do some fun stuff to keep him busy.
On Tuesday we went to the big backyard with Jade, Peyton, Ashley, Cohen and Aaliyah. The weather was nice and other than about 3 other families we were the only people there.
