Parker Adventures

Monday night Parker was working on a canoeing badge with Boy Scouts at Veterans' Park in town. 

And then last night he set off on a short-term mission trip to the Ninth Ward in New Orleans with the youth group from church!

Prayers for a fabulous trip for these eleven youth and five chaperones!

Friday Night

All of the boys got haircuts!!! Those are some sharp looking men there. 

And then we took our lawn chairs to City Hall for Movie on the Lawn to see Wrinkle In Time. The weather was perfect and we ended up hanging out with friends from church. It made for a lovely Friday evening in our small little city.

Happy Anniversary!!!!

We celebrated our 19th anniversary having dinner at the California Grill restaurant on top of the Contemporary Hotel at Disney World. 

It's such a pretty view of the Magic Kingdom. Fireworks ended up getting rained out, but the food more than made up for the lack of fireworks. 

We had a wonderful evening! Thankful for 19 great years and looking forward to many, many more.

Family Fun

Friday afternoon we drove home to Seffner/Brandon to visit with family. Daryl's cousin Sam and his wife Sarah and their daughter Ivey are here visiting from Boston. They will have a new addition to their family later this year. We got a chance to spend some time with them and to hang out with Sam's brother Clark as well.

Typical cousin fun! 
Then we met up with grandparents and Uncle Daniel's family for dinner at Chili's. Our nephew Micah is home on leave from the Navy and it was our only chance to see him before he gets sent out to San Diego next week. We all had a great time hanging out together.

Comparing height on the 19 year old and the 14 year old cousins.

July 4th

We continued our annual tradition for the 4th year in a row attending the Leesburg Lightning Baseball game and then the fireworks display afterwards. The weather looked ominous during the game but it never rained. A few times during the fireworks you could the lightning in the distance behind the fireworks!

Teeth and More Teeth

It's been a big week for teeth in our house. On Monday, Wesley had to have a root canal for a deep cavity inside a permanent molar. He did amazing throughout the whole procedure. He's feeling better now. 

And then on Tuesday Davis had a consult with the orthodontist from our Shands Craniofacial team over at UF's College of Dentistry to examine him for a needed palate expander. We still need two more grownup permanent teeth to come in before we can fit the palate expander. Hopefully by October those teeth will be ready and we can move ahead.

Birthday Boy

Since Monday was Davis' birthday, he got to have his favorite for dinner - spaghetti and meatballs! 

And then there was singing and ice cream cake for dessert.

Happy 8th Birthday to Davis!!!! We love your smile and how your personality lights up a room. We love you to the moon and back!
