makin' a splash!

We met some of our favorite mommies and kids at Pioneer Park.
During the summer, they have a cool area just for water play.
The kids loved every minute of it.

Thanks, mommies for a fun playdate before our vacation :)

team Bella & Tripp

A few weeks ago, we had a Team Bella dinner,
to celebrate our first Birthday Bash.
Ali and Bella's baby brother, Julian, will be here SOON!
It's important for me, again, to bring up EB.
It's just horrible. I can't imagine.
And, if you have ever read Tripp's blog,
you can't help but want to do something about it.
Please pray for Tripp.
He's really suffering now.
It takes my breath away.
Pray for his mom, Courtney.
She's an amazing young lady.
Visit their blog, leave them a comment.
Become "friends" with Courtney on Facebook.
They need to feel all the love that they can.

opening day

The line to get into the fair was CRAZY long when we arrived.
We walked around to another gate, and a very nice fair employee let us in
the employee gate...nice way to start the day!

Another perk to free parking today, was the Friday food tasting.
Every Friday, you can get a sample of food at each booth, for $2.00.

Which meant, half a corn cob for Molly.
As well as pizza, half and half a corn dog.
We had a coupon for a free game...and we played the
"winner everytime" fishing game.
They have a very cool thing for kids ages 6 and up.
You can download a form, and if they read 2 books,
they get 3 free rides!
The fun house mirrors, however, are free.

Jack and I paid $1.00 to see the gigantic Florida crocodile.
Molly loves the petting zoo.
And it was pretty exciting to see this:
We bought SuperPasses this year,
which means...
We will be back...
But, there is just something about opening day...

win! win! win!

I think I enter to win everytime Beki gives something away on her blog.
She's got some new designs which are super cute:

I still "need" this one...
So, if you want to win, go to the Rusted Chain, and leave a comment.
Easy, right?
And then, if you win, you can always give it to me!!

Just like last time, I went to the New Kids concert last night.
They were joined by the Backstreet Boys.
But, more importantly, Matthew Morrison was there, too.
I pretty much adore him.

But, even better than Matthew Morrison was having some girl time with friends
from the original New Kids days...(hello, 1989).
I went with Kelly (again), and was thrilled when I got a text from Tori,
who had flown in very last minute.
She and her sister were there, too!
So, we ditched our seats, found an empty section,
and enjoyed the show together!
(this is a horrible picture, but I had to document it!)

Summer Fun #1

I am totally behind in my blogging attempts this summer.
But, it's summer.
And we are busy having fun.
Here's some highlights...
(Jack's cast comes off on Thursday!)
