Update

We were so excited to see everyone we forgot to take pictures to put on our blog! Everyone arrived with their luggage...a nice change since Michaela's luggage never did catch up with her and actually arrived at home on Tuesday! Lots of pictures, stories to tell around dinner out at Gordo's....yum!

Today we ventured to Burger King to catch up with Brandon and Kiara's birth dad and sister....

Kayaking

Today when the 3 littles headed out to their visit...mom headed out kayaking with Brandon, Michael and Kiara! We were off to the lake that is across the street and through the woods only to find the boat launch closed as they were working on it:( so after some thinking time by mom we decided to head to the Massabesic Lake to finish our adventure. We unloaded the boats and headed out where we actually ate lunch in the boats. We had great fun and came home just in time to meet the kiddos.

Go Carting

Last night we had the chance to go to Hilltop Family Fun Center....so we hired a babysitter for the 2 littles and headed there with Joseph, Brandon, Kiara, Michael, Michaela and mom. We did go carts, lazed tag and mini golf. We had too much fun for one night..think the favorite was the go carts with he lazed tag a close second....check out the pictures:)

Off to Europe!

Yesterday we took Jason, Jessica and Darrell to the Boston airport...it was an eventful trip as Jason was sick from nerves and even though we stopped at the 99 (kids eat for free) -he didn't eat lunch. We got to the airport a bit late and the lines at Delta were about 200 people deep...no kidding. They made it fine...Darrell's mom, Janette and I loaded up the 6 littles and headed home to find Darrell's sister, Cheryl and her family eager to whisk Janette off to spend sometime with her.

We settled in for the night. Everyone was grumpy and tired and the afternoon seemed to drag with the rain outside. Around 7, we heard a loud noise and thought someone had an accident but were surprised to find our pool destroyed by a large branch that fell onto it. Despite all that transpired, all is okay...the most we feel is a bit of disappointment because we were hoping to do a lot of swimming in the next two weeks while everyone is away.

Michaela joins Darrell and the kids on Wednesday when we once again take her to the airport. Right now they are in Switzerland while Darrell does some business. Then they will head into France and Germany to pick up Michaela. They will spend most of their time in Germany seeing some our favorite places from when we lived there. From there they will head into Austria, Lichtenstein, ItLy and them back to Switzerland on the 25th! We are so excited for them!

Below are some pictures of the pool... No pictures of their trip yet.

Baptisms

We love when the Lord leads those we love to Himself....Michael, Brandon and Kiara were baptized last Saturday night at our church Ignited Generation. Darrell and Pastor Gary baptized them...what a special night for our family!
