He did not want to be a Reese's, he really wanted to be a Hershey bar
And he wanted to be a Reese's because he likes them!
Ah, fun times! So anyway, we get into the park and of course the first thing we MUST do is grab a map and stop to look at it!
Of course, it doesn't really matter what the map says, we ended up stopping at the very first ride and then just going from there. But, it's always good to refer back to the map! :)
We did get to see the Reese's guy AND the HErshey's guy, so both lil boys were happy!
Friday we spent the day washing and packing clothes for Tyler and Nathan to go to camp, and preparing for the giant waterslide party we were hosting on Saturday, while Lincoln went to his first sleep over at a friend's house! He had a so much fun at his friend Dominic's house! And we all had a blast at the waterslide party! The kids only stopped to eat because we made them...lol...they were having so much fun! I enjoyed sitting and chatting with great friends and family who came! We really missed those who weren't able to come.
It did rain off and on but that didn't stop the kids!!! Well, one did say he wasn't going on the slide because it was raining...all while he was riding the scooter, in the rain! That was pretty funny! Tons of pictures have been posted on my FB page.
Sunday, we dropped Lincoln off at my in-laws and then headed up to PA to take Nathan and Tyler to the Ronald McDonald camp that Nathan had been accepted to go to with one sibling! He was so excited! We drove almost 4 hours away from home, in the middle of nowhere! I was excited for Nathan but still got teary eyed as we left him at his first sleep away camp!

he's all unpacked and ready for a week of fun
Lincoln had, according to him, a great week without his brothers. He told them, when asked if he missed them, "No, I actually forgot about you. I had fun by myself, without you!" Hmm! While the brothers were away, Lincoln had a playdate with friend's, a trip to the park, a beach day with his cousin who also came over for a sleepover, and a sleepover at mom-mom and pop-pop's! While Lincoln was at my in-laws, we drove back up to PA to pick up the boys! I was so excited to see them! Nathan was so funny. He talked about camp non-stop for at least a half hour straight. He did fall alseep in the car for a bit and when he woke up he continued telling us all about camp!!! Um, yeah, I think he had a good time! Tyler loved it too! But I figured he would. This was his third camp this summer!
That afternoon, I took Nathan and Lincoln to a friend's birthday/pool party. They had a great time! Then the next day, after church, we went to the movies again, this time to see The Odd Life of Timothy Green! Oh My Goodness what a good movie! I cried!!!! The boys all liked the movie as well! It really is a great family movie!
Thankfully, this past week has not been as busy! They all have been to a friend's house and we went to the beach one day. However, we did end up at the doctors with Lincoln, the cold he ended up getting last week has led to a double ear infection, so he is on an antibiotic and today Tyler woke up with a fever and a sore throat! Prayers for everyone to get better over the weekend! Next week is Tyler's last week before school starts, it would be nice to get in at least one more beach day before he goes back! And Nathan goes to the clinic on Monday for a spinal tap and his monthly check up!
It's time to start getting everything together for Lincoln's birthday party. I want to make him a LEGO pinata, here are some ideas I have found on Pinterest.
