Favorite Foto Friday

It is Friday, thank goodness!!  I am participating in FFF.  If you would like to join in the fun, just join Hannah over at Me-Me and Monkey's BIG Adventure.  This week is U-Pick.  

Last weekend was very, very busy for us.  As I told you in my earlier post, one of my brothers will be leaving next Thursday for Afghanistan.  He didn't think he was going to be able to come home before being deployed, but at the last minute he contacted me via FB to let me know he was coming in.  So I made plans last Friday to go see him on Saturday and then on Sunday we had a birthday party and while we were at the birthday party, my husband took my mother-in-law to the hospital because she was having chest pains.  So it was a busy, busy weekend.  So I thought I would share some of the photos from last weekend for today.  I hope you enjoy!!
My brother was going to visit his two boys while in town and he had gotten a book called Over There and it talks about the same things that he will be doing while he is gone that we do over here.  It was a really neat book and he was reading it to Kenleigh.  So sweet!!

My daddy and brother Jason.
Here we all are laughing pretty hard about something??  Anyways:  Daddy, Jason, Kenleigh, Kaitlyn, Me and my Aunt Pam.

Here is Jason with his wife Jamie. 
Please say a special prayer for her.  I can't imagine what she must be going through.  My husband has never been away from me except for a few nights here and there. 
Now on to Sunday........Here are all the guests from the double birthday party.  This slide was a hit!!  The kids absolutely loved it, except Kenleigh.  I think she was just a little too small for it.  She came down really, really fast and then hit the water face first and got water all in her eyes.  So she spent most of her time either here:

In this little playhouse where she could open and shut the door, or on the trampoline below.  I was wore out by the end of the day because I had to take her around to three different places.  She thought she wanted to get on the slide, so I would put her in and then she decided she didn't want in there.  What we do for our children!! 
Happy 6th Birthday to Cloyee and Reece!!

These were the kids that were left after the party and they played on the slide forever!!  Reece and Cloyee, Zoei, Karlie and Kaitlyn.

Here is Gavin and Kenleigh.  I think she has found her a little boyfriend.  They played in the little house together and now they are eating out of their goody bags!!  

I hope everyone has a very Happy 4th!!

  8. Lori, I stopped by to tell you that I saw a copy of Family Fun magazine at my daughters Ortho office this week. On the cover was a little girl that looked EXACTLY (to me) red hair and all like your youngest daughter. I so wish I could find a link. It was a spring issue, so its fairly new as in a month or two. Have you seen it?

  9. How cute, Lori! I love the pics of the kids on the water slide and little Kenleigh with her boyfriend! So precious.

    God Bless your brother!
