Birthday Trip

This Saturday I had the┬áprivilege of taking my dear brother Luke on a “trip” into town. We had a very good time, wandering around and seeing the “sights” and I thought you might like to see a few (or actually, a few more than a few) pictures from it.

We got dropped off at Arris’ Pizza at 11:15 and immediately ordered our Pizza(s!)

They arrived at 11:35, and we dug in!

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end sometime! Our pizza did at 11:50 and we headed out, visiting several nearby stores to look around.

“Cathole” trowel anyone?

We stopped at a used bookstore and bought several books and we then started walking to the bus stop that would take us to our next destination.

We walked,

And walked,And walked! Over 3 and a half miles, all told! And the really annoying thing about it was that we had only actually needed to walk about 1 mile, but I, the experienced world traveler, had gotten one of our turns wrong, necessitating all that extra 2 and a half! We finally arrived at our bus stop though, and sat down to wait for the bus to come.

Luke said “I never thought a patch of grass and a bottle of water could be so good!”

We rode the bus to Lighthouse Lanes, where we bowled and played air hockey.

We then went back outside and did some more waiting for the bus. This is a picture I texted ┬ámy mom while we were waiting, I titled it “Waiting for the bus-Heironimus style!”

I guess this would be riding the bus, Heironimus style!

We walked from the bus stop to Mama Jean’s Natural Market

We ate dinner and bought some “treats” for every one else and at 5:10 we left

We went to Bass Pro, the final stop on our trip, and at 6:15 we were picked up, having had a wonderful 7 hours together!

Happy Birthday Luke!

Luke joined the ranks of the teenagers on August 28! He went on a canoe trip with our dad from Friday afternoon til Sunday morning, when they came back to our house to join us. After going to church, we came back home and spent a relaxing remainder of the day,giving Luke his presents, swimming, watching movies and eating cake. We didn’t take that many pictures, but here they are,along with pictures he and dad took on their canoe adventure:

Happy Birthday John!

John turned 8 on Saturday, August 13 and we all had a wonderful time celebrating with him, I took pictures all day and I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the highlights:

After we ate breakfast, John opened his presents, which included some diet Coke and Mentos for an experiment

The evil genius in action!

John and Isaac enjoyed cooling off in the pool to escape the 100 degree heat

While John was swimming, Rachel and I made pizzas for his birthday dinner

The test…
They passed!
After dinner, Mom and Rachel prepared us all a delicious dessert of Angelfood cake, strawberries, and whipped cream
Make a wish!

I’m an Old Man!

I had a birthday on July 30!- (My 15th if any of you wouldn’t happen to know)
I had an excellent birthday, enjoying my family (who I hadn’t seen for a full day since Sunday- I was at camp) and just enjoying being 15- which wasn’t all that much different from being 14, but I guess you could say that I enjoyed being alive in general!
The first thing I did when I woke up (after running my daily 5k), was to make pancakes- which I think turned out quite well (if I do say so myself!)
Faces make pancakes taste better!
You can blow out the candles on multiple types of cakes!
Paul thought I should start eating my cheese (a gift from Luke) right away!
After Lunch we all went bowling, my final score was 113 (not that spectacular, but I hadn’t bowled in about 20 months, so I wasn’t too disappointed

Once we got home, John,Mom,Rachel and I started preparing dinner
John and I worked on breading chicken tenders
Mom baked and iced a cake
The icing passed the taste test!
Rachel sliced strawberries
Rachel then put the strawberries she had sliced into a nice pattern on top of the cake
The moment we’ve all been waiting for!

The cake was spectacular and I had a wonderful rest of the night, playing with my family and watching “Fellowship of the Ring” with Luke and Dad.
Whew! I didn’t realize I had done so much on my birthday!


July 25 was Paul’s 3rd birthday! (Sorry I haven’t posted in so long, in between camp and other stuff I haven’t had much “computer time”)
We had (and I hope Paul had) a very good day, I thought I’d just share a few pictures from his birthday with you:
I made Paul pancakes for breakfast (by his request I put faces on them)
Isaac had to make sure that no one took any!
Look out world! Paul has a hammer and he (I hope) knows how to use it!
Paul got a new pair of green “frog boots” to replace the ones he’d worn holes in (he loves boots!)
Who says what types of cakes you can and can’t put candles on?
The pancakes were a success!
I took Paul to Andy’s to get some Ice CreamWill it be good?
Paul and I went on a “hike” and he thoughtfully picked some flowers for mom!
Paul’s wonderful birthday cake- it tasted even better than it looked (believe it or not!)
Yikes! This is the longest post in the history of SixSibs.com
Have a good remainder of the summer!
