Awesome Adventures - August 2016

Awesome Adventures with Ryder and Logan - August 2016


The month of August began with our California adventure to Uncle JT's and Aunt Kaela's wedding
Look for more about this Awesome Adventure in a post in a few days.  Suffice it to say...we had a BLAST!

Ryder and his family attended a 
J-E-T-S 
Jets! Jets! Jets! 
preseason football game.



We spent countless hours at Merrill Park before the big move.








 



Some of Logan and Ryder's favorite activities are wading in the little stream that runs through the park ...

And going on slide races ...

The day would not be complete without stopping at the local Dairy Maid for ice cream treats before nap.


I took this picture of the boys on our last day at Merrill Park.  So many happy memories were made here.  We will have to find a new favorite park when they move to their new home.



We will also be sad to be so far away from the Ponderosa Spray Park in Scotch Plains.




Getting ready for the BIG MOVE by helping Daddy, Grandad and Haha try to move the slide/swing/playhouse.


Ryder playing some tunes in his almost empty house.

We took a little break from all the packing and moving to sit and relax with the rice box.

The next Awesome Adventures with Ryder & Logan post will be pictures after Ryder & Logan and their parents, Kyle & Heather, move in with us while awaiting their new home.  
Now, that should prove to be a really AWESOME ADVENTURE!


Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!
