Our friend, Bradley, was a life guard at Hawaiian Falls over the summer and he scored us some tickets to go!  We were so excited, especially since we didn't get to swim much in a pool over the summer.  
 Jane just cracked me up the whole time.  You can her see, Miss Independent, pushing past the boys to take off.  She certainly has spunk.  :)

 The splash pad was a huge hit!  All the kids loved that the best and therefore, that is where we spent a lot of the time.  Even though it was hot outside the water was cool and wonderful.

Bradley's mom, Lisa, also passed along some coupons for us to get free cotton candy!  Wahoo!  This is a fav among the O kids.  
Aaaaaah.  The best ride home ever!  Lol.  We had such a great time and we are so thankful for good friends that God has given to us to extend His generosity.  Thanks, Wabbersens! :)  :)

Happy Birthday, Dear Jane

Jane's birthday was on Sunday...but since church usually takes up most of the day, and Nana and Pa came up on Saturday, we decided to to celebrate a day early.  Yummy BBQ at Cousin's for lunch.

 Since we just moved into the rental house, I did not have anything organized to make Jane's cake...no working oven, no pans, no groceries.  So, we just bought one at the store and I used the toppers that I purchased from Amazon.  Jane is VERY much into Care Bears so we had a "Bear Birthday".

 You can see her little fan club, complete with Bears and Brothers, behind her as the festivities began.
 We opened presents from family and loved ones....

...and then brought out the cake!

Birth-minute kiss!!  12:52 pm.  Happy Birthday, Darling Jane.  What a blessing you are to our lives.  God was so good to allow you to come into our lives two years ago, and we continue to praise Him for all the hard, joyful, and sweet moments.
