Vacation 2011

Precious Memories

We are enjoying our vacation so very much. It’s been great to visit with our family and let the kids enjoy time with their grandparents. Here are a few photos of our trip.

 The girls put Matthew in this doll playpen. We had a very sick boy during the first two days of our trip. He had an ear infection and was not interested in playing. He let the girls use him as their living doll, though. 

Mostly, he did this till we got his antibiotic. Eight hours after getting it in his system, he perked up!

 He wasn’t interested in playing much, so Lauren kept him happy by pulling him around on Grandma’s rug. 
 Grandma found some Home Depot building kits at Goodwill! Lauren made a periscope and Mitch made a boat! 
 Working hard on their projects.
 Matthew is finally wanting to crawl around and play!
 More work!
Grandma helps Mitchell hammer and use a screwdriver. She’s an expert builder! She’s made bookshelves and other things. 🙂
Yep, it works! There are Lauren’s eyes! 
We visited several Goodwill stores in Ohio. I found these books for the kids! We love getting books. I also got a hardback copy of And Then What Happened Paul Revere?
 Grandma, who is also a wonderful seamstress, made the little girls play wedding dresses and veils! They were so excited!! She bought white tee shirts and used scraps from her job at David’s Bridal to make these frilly mini-wedding dresses!
Grandma with her girls and their special dresses. I know I’ll blink my eyes and they will be getting married for real!! 
Grandma and Granddad took all the kids to a safety carnival in their town. Leslie happened to win a drawing for a BRAND NEW BIKE and HELMET!! (More on the carnival later) Here she is with her prize. 🙂

Grandma taught Lauren how to make some jewelry. I think Lauren has found a new hobby. 🙂
Here’s her necklace. She also made a bracelet, which I must not have photographed…hmmm.
Grandma, Granddad and the grandkids, all ready for church.
I’ve got so much more to share with you – the carnival, our visit to the Creation Museum, and other cute pics. 
Thanks for reading!
