The second one I made I used a candlestick from the dollar store and a glass bowl also bought at the dollar store.

The 'behind the falls' view
the American Falls - view from the Maid of the Mist
Wednesday we headed back to Ohio. We had so much fun visiting with my mom & dad, my brother, Chris, my sis-in-law, Michelle, and their kids, Lil Chris and Ayla!
We celebrated the 3 lil boys' birthdays (June, July, & September). So we had some specialty cupcakes for each of the kids.
Chris' was a Happy Birthday Cupcake.
Nathan's was a cheeseburger cupcake,
(he's not too happy because he really wanted one like Lincoln).
Lincoln had a duck in the pond cupcake.
Ayla's was a 'princess' cupcake.
And Tyler had a peanut butter cup cupcake
Since my brother's b-day is in September as well, we decided to sing to him too!
The kids exchanged presents! Look at their smiling faces!
The kids had a blast dog piling onto Greg!
There was lots of bubble blowing, too!
Cousin picture time...
They also had a blast trying out Lil' Chris' new waterslide!
Us big 'kids' wanted to try it out too! Oh well! We also went to a Balloon Festival, however, we were too early for the actual balloon part so we did not see any hot air balloons :( but the kids had a good time playing paintball and riding the ponies!
Time for ice cream!
Greg and I went to Put In Bay Island on Lake Erie. We had a great time and decided to take the kids and my parents. (My mom had been there before with Chris & Michelle) The best part is that we got to ride around the whole island on a golf cart.
A Limo size Golf Cart...lol
Tyler and Lincoln on the Rock Wall...
Lincoln made it to the top before Tyler
swimming at the public pool
Good Bye Put In Bay...
Till next time
What a great start to our summer!!!
However, while we were away, a bad storm hit here and we came home to no electric, and some damage done to the yard and house.
The tree across the street fell and laid in the middle of the street till Wednesday.
Part of the porch fell
That white thing up there as well as tons of shingles blew off.
Our tree fell over.
Our yard had to be roped off because cars were driving through it.
See that drill, it drilled a hole in our gas line...what fun added to the mess :/
The kids camped out in the living room the first night
(Tyler went to the bedroom in the basement, it was cooler)
Tuesday, my in-laws had electric, so the kids slept at their house and everyone (including the dog) kinda hung out at their house or the pool during the day. By Thursday, we had electric! What a week!
During this time, Nathan had an appointment at the clinic for a check up and IV chemo. His counts are still really high and if they are high again at the next visit, his meds will be increased again. His lil body is tolerating the meds so well, that his counts are not going down like they should. We were told not to worry, but I'm just not sure I like him being on 125% meds or higher. But, I am thankful that God has being healing him and keeping him well!
I was also extremely busy preparing for Nathan's birthday party. But that will be the next post. Probably tomorrow! What a blast that was! Everyone had a ball! ;)
