The Best Week Ever!

We have had one of the best weeks that I can ever remember as a family!  It was hot here.  Well, hot for Northern  Michigan, anyway.  We had several days in the high 80's.  We have no air conditioning in the house and no pool, so we met Daddy and the boys at the lake 3 days in a row.  What fun!  We played and rode the jet ski and just had loads of fun.

Then, our little town has a festival every year downtown.  Our kids wanted to go, but we have never taken them because of the sheer cost of paying for so many children to ride rides, so we told the girls we didn't have the money to go.  Next thing I know, they are out on the corner selling lemonade and water bottles to passersby.  And they made $80.  Enough money to pay for 5 children to get wrist bands and ride rides for 5 hours at Alpenfest.  Boy did they have fun!  I love their determined attitude that says, "I can figure out a way to make this happen!"

The wind blew or something, and that elephant ear attacked him!
