July 4th - The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

     This is one of the few times that we have all our family in and out for more than two days. This year it was for two weeks that we got to hang out with the family. Greg and Isabel came first, then Lisa brought Anja to us, but Lisa went back to Tennessee for work. Jenna, Marlow, and Jackson came next, then the rest of the kids came in and out for the two weeks. Basically for 8 of the 14 days I had two babies attached to me. The joys of little children is indescribable, especially with 5 babies under 3 years of age.

   Not only did we entertain babies, we did our normal cooking and gardening.
   
Chad and the Jeep
Highlights were -

  • Taking the babies to McCalisters (3 times) and other lunch spots. People would think that they were all Jenna's babies. 
  • The various friends and family that came to visit and hang out with us. 
  • Great firework shows.
  • Swim time and Uber time on the Rhino with Jerry ("Bub" to Marlow)
  • The cousins together picking on each other is always a favorite.
  • The Willys Jeep
  • We celebrated Isabel's first birthday before they went home (with a three-song concert by David Dunn). 
  • Diana and I got to hangout with just Chad in Plano the last day, before he left town. 

The Group
     God blessed us with cooler than normal temperatures with even a couple of showers.
