Ronan's Party

For Ronan's 8th Birthday he requested a party with friends...full of water fun!  Josh got to work planning some cool water activities, including a "kid wash", water rockets, and a super awesome slip-n-slide!  Ronan and his buddies had SO much fun!  
Such a big kid!

Sports Camp

Ronan got to have his very first summer camp experience this year, the Jordan Kent Skill Camp, and it really went above and beyond what we had hoped for!  I was initially just excited that I got a good deal on the camp (thanks to Groupon!), but once the camp the camp started I was quickly impressed with the quality of it!  Each day they taught life lessons and also taught the kids about nutrition.  Ronan came home talking about perseverance & teamwork, and antioxidants & lean protein. (:  I'm glad he was paying attention! (;
 Ronan chose soccer as his sport (football & basketball were also offered) and ended up having a few buddies there that were doing soccer also.  He had so much fun and is already asking to do it again next year. (;
Our friend from church, Bryant King, was one of the volunteer coaches!

warming up
Jordan Kent is such a great role model for kids!  He is a former UO basketball, football, & track athlete, and went on to play for the Seahawks.  But you can tell from his website and by being around him that he wants to be known more for being a Christian.   
Last day of camp

Happy Birthday, Sadie & Katrina!

We celebrated Sadie's 9th Birthday and Katrina's 31st Birthday with all of the family after church on Sunday, July 22nd.  We met at the park by Splash (the wave pool).
We had yummy sub sandwiches for lunch!
 (The whole Temple family was there for an anniversary party, and they kindly let us share the picnic shelter that they had reserved.)
Tate made friend in the sand volleyball court
The kids all love this playground! 
Time for dessert!  Cookies and frozen treats!
Tate wanted to get every last bit of his coconut sorbet. (:  He was sticky, but very happy.
The birthday girls getting ready to open gifts.
Our gift to Sadie:

New clothes from us for Katrina & Kenton's upcoming anniversary trip to Greece!
