An Update...

Brendon's party was a huge success. There were around 148 people that were able to make it. The weather was beautiful and the facility was gorgeous. Brendon kind of knew about his party, but he didn't know the extent of how big it would be or when it would be. We had a blast and it seemed like everyone enjoyed themselves. My regret is that I didn't get to visit with everyone more. The day flew by! Thanks to everyone who helped out. There were so many people that volunteered to bring food or to help clean up. We appreciate it so much! Thank you also to everyone for the gifts for Brendon. He was so thankful. He did not open the gifts and cards until we got home that night and we were all blown away by everyone's generosity.

The regular baseball season is all done for Brendon. He chose to play on the after season team so he will have games every Tuesday and Thursday nights for the month of August. It keeps him busy and he really enjoys playing.

Awards ceremony.. Look how huge Bren is compared to everyone else..

We've been to the beach a few times this summer. It's been a really, really wet summer so there haven't been that many nice days to get out. Today we went to Popham Beach with the Dunn family. The weather wasn't the greatest, but we still enjoyed the time together. We walked for miles and splashed in the water. It was great because the beach wasn't overly crowded. It was strange wearing bathing suits and sweatshirts, but it was a good family day. We are all pretty wiped out! Bedtime will be early tonight.
Brendon has been to a baseball camp, a basketball camp and an extreme all sports camp. All of the camps have been day camps. Because the weather hasn't been the greatest, he didn't get to go to the beach very much. He still had a good time and learned a lot at each one. He'll be going to a new day camp on Monday for the next 2 weeks. The week of August 16th - August 22nd he will be going to sleep away camp for the very first time. He is really excited about it, and I'm excited for him. I'm going to miss him like crazy, though. He's growing up so fast!

We have been keeping busy with sports, family outings, birthday parties, and of course...dirt biking.

Have a great night everyone!
