Great America

July 6th, 2010 by matt

The kids earned a pair of free tickets to Six Flags Great America with their dedication to reading in school.  Grandma and Grandpa watch the little boys while Sarah, Ben, Grace and I made the trip to Illinois.  Ben and Grace loved the big coasters!  The American Eagle was their favorite.  Here is a quick shot of Mom and Grace as they were off on the Whizzer.

Here is someone’s footage of the Eagle:

Milwaukee Airshow

Grandpa Mark graciously invited Ben, his friend Tristan, Grandpa Charlie and me to the Milwaukee Airshow.  What a show!  We were in the reserved seating and the rain held off for the Blue Angles.  I had never seen a Raptor before.  Awesome!

Hopefully we get to all go again next year!

Will sneaks a ride in Max’s car

July 6th, 2010 by matt

After eating sand in the sandbox, one of Will’s favorite activities, he snuck around to the front yard and got some time in Max’s red car.  Will had a lot of fun for a short amount of time before Max discovered what was happening and put an end to his joyride!  Hopefully the boys will learn to share better in the future.  I can hope, right?!?

Billie’s Summer Carnival

We’ve been attending the summary party for Billie’s in home day care for almost a decade now.  Here are Max and Grace taking a break from the songs and games for a quick photo.  Ben was the lucky kid to have the finishing blow on the piñata this year.

Max’s new car

Max loves it!  He talks about his red car quite a bit.  He’s even taken it for a spin in the sandbox!

Memorial Day Weekend

We met up with the VBs at papa Charlie’s palace for some fun on Memorial Day weekend.  Here we are on the boat, ready to do some fishing.

Here is Libby and Grace enjoying some time together on the screen porch.

Max finally got the courage to ride on the ATV with Grandpa!
