The Wedding of Jonathan & Kendra Ippel

We spent some time in Michigan to be a part of our friends wedding festivities. Our family went camping for that long weekend. We were able to see friends that we hadn't seen in years and months! Stephen did a great job as "Superkid" and all the brown dresses looked pretty good together. Here are the girls.

Uncle Jake & Aunt Donna - it was great to spend some time with you again too!

Despite all the misfortunes and adventures, it was a great weekend!

Back in July we also got to visit some friends down in the Niagara area. Stephen and Noah played in the pool right next to the new subdivision that's going in around the house.

Stephen and Zachary looking very hot and tired. The more we talked to Hannah and Ryan about Zachary, the more we became convinced that he and Stephen could have been brothers. It's reassuring to know that Stephen is normal.
Janae, Samuel and Daniel smile for the camera.

Stephen's birthday

Here we are again, after a loooong break from blogging. We do apologize. These are some pictures that we took for Stephen's birthday. We made a pinata of Bob the Tomato. Stephen really enjoyed making the pinata for about 5 minutes.

These are the girls from the party. Stephen doesn't really have any kids his age that are boys, but he doesn't really mind that.
The kids made Fruit Loop necklaces to kill some time.
The kids took turns hitting the pinata with a baseball bat, but it wasn't breaking, so we ended up using a croquet mallet which did a lot more damage.
