Daddy Time

The boys love to help daddy with fire wood. Although, Logan prefers to give the instructions rather than do the work! Today I guess they weren't feeling very strong.
Ashlen is getting a building lesson during her first trip to the garage.

Dinner on a Cruise Ship

Tonight we were invited on board the Statendam to have dinner with our friend Raymond, who is a crew member, and friend of Matthew's dad. The kids were very excited, because they remembered going on a ship for lunch last summer. As we walked up to the ship, Brennen kept excitedly shouting, "Daddy! I see doot! (boat)"
Raymond enjoyed meeting Ashlen.
This is a rather rubbish photo, but I kind of like it anyway! At least it shows us eating dinner.
The kids had fun standing in this window that sticks out from the ship.

And Raymond took them all to get big strawberry ice cream cones!

Exploring the Ship

After dinner we went outside to explore the decks. The kids were really excited to go to the "area with the grass". The tropical zone... with Deer Mountain in the background!
Ashlen overlooking Ketchikan praying, "Greater things are yet to come, and greater things are still to be done in this city_y yyy...When glory shines through hearts alive with praise for you, and love for you in this city_y yyy..."
(it's a song)
She likes cruising. And, of course, finding the pools is fun too!
As we were getting ready to disembark, Raymond bestowed many gifts upon the children, as usual!
Within seconds of snuggling with her new soft doggy, Ashlen fell sound asleep!

Fun Pics

Here's our picture from Splash Mountain at Disney World. This and Pirates of the Caribbean were the only "big kid" rides we went on. We waited 75 minutes in line for it! Meadow was very brave to go on this one, but when we went down the big water fall she hid! Christy is trying to hold her up. Afterward she said it was fun and wanted to go again! That's William and David in front, Christy and Meadow, Matthew making a silly face for the camera, and me. (We don't know the people in the back.)

This picture is from a "sketching" machine at Chuck E. Cheese's. We had fun with it. I thought this picture was cute! I just wish the rest of Logan's face was there. Meadow looks so beautiful!

Today Logan got to ride to school in daddy's big step van! Ashlen getting some quality brother time! They love their little sister! She loves them too!
