Garage Door

Of course this had to happen while Brian was gone.
I decide to close the garage door at about 6:00 pm after the kids come in from playing and are having dinner.

I close the door and walk away. As I'm getting in the kitchen I hear a clunk noise. Hmmm...not good. I open the door to find....

Yes, the van is inside the garage and unless I can get the door back on the track I will be stuck at home.

I call Brian to have him call his friend--Super Bob as he is known by the kids. He comes over (thankfully) and helps me get the door up and I pull the van outside.

(Bob in the picture)

He helps me get the door back down so that it is at least closed for the night. Now doesn't that look great!

With Sarah Grace's birthday party this weekend we will be calling someone to come and fix it.

Happy Birthday Sarah Grace!!

Sarah Grace it is hard to believe that you are a year old today. You have grown up so much and learned how to do so many things in 12 short months.

After a rough pregnancy and delivery, we all were excited when you were able to come home!!

We enjoy watching you grow and learn each day.

You are loved by many for your cute smile and loving personality.

Happy 1st Birthday Sarah Grace!!

For her birthday from Grandma Mary and Grandpa Jim she got the pajamas to match Kit's.

And....she's off walking this time!!

Sarah Grace is officially walking. She took her first steps the last day of school and has slowly been taking a few more steps each day. This past weekend she put it all together and now officially walks more than crawls.

And she is very proud of herself. It won't be long before she is running after those big sisters.

Julia's Birthday Party

Julia had her birthday party on July 10th at Stonefire Pizza. She was able to invite 8 friends and had a great time!!

Stitches Again....

....for Caroline. It happened the night of July 1st (Julia's birthday) as they were playing at the indoor McDonalds (Julia's choice for dinner).

This is the third time on her chin. We didn't even take a picture.

I'm pretty sure we will be spending time more time in the Children's Emergency Room with her than any other kid.

We love you Caroline! :)

Caroline walked with her other soccer friends.....

Before going to the fireworks we let the kids do a few at home. Here they are with their cousin Natalie.

Vacation Bible School

From June 22nd to the 26th our church does Vacation Bible School (VBS). The kids love it and really look forward to it each year.
This year we did Crocodile Dock.

Pastor John was a tour guide in the bayou and Pastor Sherrie was the gal from the bayou showing all us nice VBS kids around.

The nice VBS ladies got flowers and real crawfish in bowls.

Sarah Grace even got to go this year!!
