Oregon's finest fast food chain.
Yukon Gold Criss Cut Fries, Halibut Sandwich and a chocolate Hazelnut shake was my favorite meal of choice when pregnant with Katie.
This one is right by my OB office ~ it was the site of many lunches on appt. days.
Andrew and I enjoyed a quick (and delightful) lunch before his allergist appt.
(Skin test next month).

Vacation Bible School was this week.
"Son surf beach" was the theme this year.
174 kids attended!
I'm so grateful that my kids have this experience each year.
PS. this picture was actually taken on thursday. I brought my camera on wed. and forgot the memory card!
So I had to cheat a bit. :)

After spending the afternoon decorating for Vacation Bible School, the ladies from my small group came over for "movie night." We had brownie sundaes, put the movie in (never watched it), cut crafts for VBS (note the garbage and box) and then just sat and talked for 6 hours! Dan took this photo around midnight. :) They are a wonderful group of women who inspire me in many ways ~ it would be nice to do this more often.

Shannon and I told Hannah and Matthew that if they read the Judy Moody book we'd take them to see the movie.
They both read it in a day and a half!
We made good on our promise and took them out tonight.
The movie was AWFUL, but the company was wonderful.
Special night with our oldest kids--Who are so much alike!
(Dates to come with the middles and youngest ones too.) :)

Andrew broke this angel last year.
It holds great sentimental value to me.
(It's from a nativity from my childhood and perched atop the creche that my Dad made).
It was a BAD day.
I glued it back together last night, though it was missing a piece in the front.
Katie saw to its demise this morning.

Noah and Andrew were SO HAPPY to have the whole day to play together.
Kingdoms were conquered, Bad guys captured, and justice prevailed.
Mike called and reported that Noah put himself to bed when he returned home
...he was completely worn out from all of his heroic deeds from the day.

A COLD weeknight dinner on the back patio with friends.
It felt like late October!
Warm chocolate chip pie waited for us inside for dessert.
It was nice to trade baseball games (Matthew's season is over) for time with friends.
PS. How cute is Dan's smile? That's what snagged me. :)

We went to watch my nephew Isaiah play baseball tonight.
Their last game concluding an undefeated season!
He plays well enough to get away with these shoes. :)
He's 8 years old, but was drafted to play up with the 9 & 10 year olds.
He's our family superstar! :)

(Matthew took off his shirt because his sunburn was hurting).
Matthew shows off his green ribbon for running 20 miles.
Yes, 20 miles!
They started running during recesses in May.
They get a ticket from the recess teacher as they finish each lap, then turn in their tickets to their teacher who tallies their distance.
They receive a ribbon at 10 mile increments.
Matthew was so excited to make it to the 20 mile mark today.
I was impressed!

An 8th Birthday Lego party for Matthew's at Big Al's.
A fun time was had by all!
When Matthew went to bed he said,
"Thank you for making that party for me, Mama."
It made all the work worthwhile.
I love you, sweet boy.
