We were fortunate to have a few hours to spend with some great friends of ours who live very close to where the wedding was held. So we went out for lunch with our friends at Whiskey Creek. We don't have Whiskey Creek here in Oregon, so it was a treat to get to enjoy their yummy vittles!! Once we were finished eating, we wanted to let our kids play together... but it had been raining and the park was OUT for fear of the mud-caking that would ensue! So, Dr. Mike (a vet school mate of Pops') suggested we go to Menards. Uh, what, I thought. Turns out, Menards has much of their play equipment that is available for purchase on display to try out! So, we headed up the road and gave all the toys a whirl!
SEE! This playhouse runs ya $419.99 if it is the one you'd like to take home! Bud thought it was fun to shovel the bark mulch out of it!
Bump enjoyed swinging and smiling at their oldest kiddo!
Their middle boy was a big ham and LOVED to pose for the camera! It was easy to get smiles out of him!
These girls did not want to part ways and were bargaining with us as to how they could stay together for most of the summer. Good to know that they still get along!
Their youngest boy was a bit more elusive with the camera... but boy is he a cutie!
Dr. Mike and Ms. Judy are Bump's Godparents and they were thrilled to get their first snuggles and lovin' on him!
We are so excited for them... as a new baby will be joining their family sometime this fall, likely in October! Yippeee to more babies to love!
We joke... sort of... that with the current spread of kids, they need this babe to be a girl and then we could have four arranged marriages and spend our holidays all together - especially to continue our Fourth of July traditions!! We LOVE 4th of July together!!
Anyway, a fun fun time had with our friends, but I bet Menards was maybe glad to see us go since the only purchase was a package of licorice and a bottle of water!
