Well we celebrated Mr. Elias turning 8 with an early pirate birthday party. It was fun and I think the kids really enjoyed playing the old fashion birthday games we played. It was so very hot outside but we just kept spaying the kids down with the water hose. Our super sweet friends the Timmerman's made Elias the coolest homemade pirate ship cake. This was by far one of the best cakes I have ever had...the homemade chocolate frosting was so delicious....thank you again!!!!! We had the kids build islands out of boxes and then they got to try to destroy them with their cannon balls. The pop the other pirate's cannon ball games was funny to watch...Eliana said this was her favorite. We had a sword fight in the sprinklers and some other really fun games.Elias and Eliana are really going to miss their friends. It was so great to have Andy here to celebrate with us as a family!!!
We had a lazy day this 4th of July. It was nice as we had a very eventful night the night before and stayed out late with the kiddos. We did finally got around to getting the kids pictures taken in their matching little USA sweat-shirts...and crazy zany glasses.

I found some Star wars treasure at the Goodwill near our house...these sets cost so much money and they were in mint condition. Elias and Eliana were really thrilled to come home from VBS to such a big surprise...we looked up the value of some of the sets and one is worth $400 dollars..I think we have around 23 different sets. I just wanted to show off my cool deal and some of the ones Elias got put together.
