Pool Time!

A couple of weeks ago, I made a purchase that I came to regret. I tend to do that. I get depressed, I order things online. I cheer up, then I regret the purchase and resolve to return said purchase.

This time my purchase was a pool for the kids. I decided to return it when it came in the mail. However, Kyler opened the box that the pool came in and discovered a pool was inside. At this point there was no way I could return it!

So, I made the best of it. We filled it with air, then filled it with water. The kids both LOVE it! Best.Purchase.Ever!!


I have yet to get any cute pictures of Kyler playing in the pool, but here are some adorable pictures of Miss Ella!|








Parade and Benefit

My awesome friends here in Derby offered to hold a benefit for me and my family to help with medical expenses. In order to get the word out about the benefit, my friend, Amy, offered to do a float for our local Derby Days parade. The theme was “Hang 10 in 2010” so Amy did a surfer theme for our float. We had these amazing posters made for the sides of the float. They turned out wonderful!










The benefit was held on June 19th. There was a spaghetti supper, silent auction, a band, a bounce house and games for the kids. We had a wonderful turnout, around 250 people were able to come and quite a bit of money was raised to help with medical expenses. Huge thank yous to everyone that was able to come and show your support! We truly appreciate it.
