The theme at our VBS this year was "Shake it Up"!  They cooked, etc....  I helped 3 out of the 5 days!  I helped in the "science lab" where Colton is shaking the bag.  They are making ice cream!

Our church!

Oh, don't you know how bad he wants to hold that bag:)

Shake, shake, shake:)

Nervous, maybe?

Mohawk by the youth minister for collecting over $500 for missions and over 500 cans for local food bank!

Laughing at Mr. Ty's hair!!

On the last day, Colton and I went to El Real for lunch.  It was just the 2 of us, and I was looking at a magazine.  I looked up and Colton had eaten every thing on his plate!  That is pretty amazing at lunch time:)  I had to take a picture!

Oh, and of course he had to "cheese for the camera" too!

Wild Adventures!

We took a little two day vacation to a theme park in Valdosta, Georgia called Wild Adventures!  I have heard a lot of mixed reviews about it but, we really enjoyed it!!!  It has roller coasters and rides, a zoo area and a water park.  It really depends on what you are comparing it to, but to us, we felt like we got a lot of bang for our buck!!!  We did not have to wait over 5 minutes for any ride!  It was in the middle of the week, but still!  We rode roller coaster after roller coaster.......   We got to feed a giraffe................ and we got to ride on some really neat water rides!

Heading in the first day!

Excited:)????  Nervous?????  He will only ride on the roller coasters beside Rod.  He IS scared of some things:)


Here are some shots of us feeding the giraffe!

Heading to more rides!!

We ate at the neatest restaurant the night we stayed there!  It was called "Rajun Cajun".  Colton and Rod both ate GATOR!!!!!!  not me:)  Colton also met a friend!

On the second day, I felt like I had been beat to death!  I didn't ride as many roller coasters, so I took a few pictures!!  Love the look on their faces!!!

Then, it was on to the water park side!!

You see him coming up on my left!  My waterproof camera is broken, so I had to RUN!!!!! 
We had a fun, tiring 2 days at Wild Adventures!!!

Pool Party!

The Mudcats had a pool party for the end of the baseball season!  They had so much fun!

How cute is this?

You know he has to do the most dangerous, wildest dive of all!

Some of the boys were doing this!  Doesn't that look like fun???  NO?  Not to me either!  But to Colton.... yes:)!

And the BIG kid had to join in:)

 It was a great party!

The party was at Mr. Harvey and Mrs. Mary Kieffer's house.  Their grandson played on the team.  This is the house that Debbie built her house like!  Their house is beautiful and so is their pool!  Debbie, I think you and Robbie should put a pool like this in your yard:)!!!
