Memorial Day Get Together

We had a houseful yesterday. All of our older children invited their friends over.

John barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs.  Dennis was a big help!
Of course they played lots and lots of volleyball!  Caleb and John made the poles and net more permanent by pouring cement to anchor the pole sleeves.  They invested in metal poles and a better net.  Now the dogs can't mess with it.
Here is a video of one of the longer rallies the kids had going.

Annalyn and Olivia

Katie and Caleb
Nolan with Mytai (Julia's friend) and her little sister.
John recovered the ramp with new triply.  The kids of course, are enjoying the smooth, new surface.

Look at Andrew's latest run.

Oliver and Julia
Our living room was full of music and dancing.  The kids had a blast!

Playing Bubble Talk.
Andrew, Jonny, and their friend Ryan.
William being a great big brother!
"What's that?"
Oliver is such a big boy now!
Everyone had such a good time, that we hope to do this regularly.


  1. Oliver has gotten so big!!! How is his speech development going now that he's in school?

    You really have such a beautiful family, Christine. It warms my heart to see that such a large group of people love each other so much, love is sometimes such a foreign concept to a lot of people and its really sad.

  2. What a great Memorial Day celebration for everyone. I can see how everyone enjoyed it very much. So much love in this family.
