We just got back last night from a wonderful couple of weeks in sunny, warm/hot Arizona. I didn't think I could ever blog all the pictures so I tried this. I set it on the really fast setting so it won't take you too long.
I am so thankful for the memories and all the fun. Hope you enjoy!

The Only 3 Things I Don't miss...

Get in De Car

Tomorrw night Wheaton Bible Church is hosting a Phil Keggy and Randy Stonehill concert. Someone at church asked if Scott could make an airport run. He said sure, then today he found out he will be picking up Randy Stonehill. He said when he gets into our car he's going to be blasting "Shut De Door". He's also going to ask him to shut de door and speak with a thick Jamaican accent the whole ride back to church.

Lance, Robyn and the boys came for a visit and we loved it!
Luker is even more squishy and precious than the last time we saw him.

Owen seems 14! These kids played like crazy till the sun went down. Then he and Amelia stayed up till midnight talking about important stuff.

These two dudes were as happy as could be to be together.

Fun Monday!

Monday was the first day of Amelia's summer break. I told her it was her special day and she could choose what we do. She wanted the Children's Museum. We loaded up and headed 25 minutes to Naperville. We got there and started doing an art project when all of the sudden all the electricity in the place went out. Totally dark. Soon the firetrucks came and they evacuated the entire museum.
I asked Amelia what her second choice would be and she said swimming at a REAL pool. The sun started to shine so I said yes. It was only about 75 degrees but what the heck. We drove alllll the way back home and got all our swimming stuff loaded up and drove to the community pool that we just joined for the summer. We had to get our pictures taken for our membership cards and I mentioned to the lady how excited we were to go swimming. "You do know it opens at 4:00 today?" Amelia and Scotty both cried a little as I put them back in the car. Sorry dudes.
Amelia announced that nothing was going our way today. "Hey kids, did you forget that we have that awesome blue pool in our backyard?!" We got home filled it up and they played for about 20 minutes till the wind started really blowing and it began to rain. Neat day.

Have you ever seen such albino children?! AZ here we come!!
