Summer Surf Camp

Boys spent a week at Summer Surf Camp!
Daniel was so excited to see me when I picked him up and Josh gave me the "Don"... a Nod in acknowledgment that he knows I am there.

Josh's summer counselor pulled me aside and told me that he was an incredible kid. He was always willing to be helpful and was so responsible.

He then went on to tell me that they give one award a week for an outstanding camper in all of the YMCA Values... Josh won it! Griff won it too! I was very pleased... he told me, "Mom, it really was no big deal." I know I have a great kid... I wish he could act great all of the time!

Mama duck is happy to have her chicks back home!

Fourth of July

We spent Fourth of July in Palm Desert.

We got a one week time share villa at a Marriott Resort for $400.
Couldn't pass it up!

Allen's Mom and Dad went with us... nice spending time with them...
kids love spending time with them!

We swam, we ate, we swam some more and we roasted!
We didn't realize how hot 115 was... now we know... and we will rethink our idea for a summer get away next year... even if it was such a great deal!

We are looking forward to our vacation next month to the mountains... hopefully the weather will be much cooler!

Michael Jackson

Karen and Joel got tickets for the MJ Memorial.

They wanted to sell them.
When we realized they couldn't sell them - we encouraged them to go.

Karen was worried about what to wear!

They ended up going...
and they called from the show and told us they were so happy they went...
that it was INCREDIBLE!

How fun for them...
and how fun for us to hear all about it first hand!

Rest in Peace MJ.
Thanks for putting on good shows... even in death!
