aka our annual summer trip to Wellesley. This year it was Maddie and I for the first couple days. We got to spend quality time with Melinda and “Ga” and “Ga” – that would be Gamma and Gampa. Then half way through the trip Jim and Christina came up. We all ate a ton of food, had a ton of fun, and played a little golf. Before Jim and Christina got there Maddie, Gamma and I went to the aquarium to see the “ishies” and sharks. We had a ton of fun, 5 hours, 2 penguins and one t-shirt souvenir kind of fun. Here are some pictures from the aquarium:

Maddie waving to the shark.

The sea lion show.

Ohh the penguins – just ask Maddie how to do the “shiver.”

Then, like we hadn’t had enough fun and heat, we spent some quality pool time, all of us! Jim is pretty famous for his cannonballs, and Maddie was itching to get wet, so . . . .
Phew, they all made it!

Did I mention we played a little golf too? Well, I didn’t get any pictures of the big kids, but I did get Maddie and Gampa after dinner one night “putting.”

And that concludes the photo version of our trip “home.”

Just kidding, one more gem:DSC_0151

Noah's 3rd Birthday

I can’t believe that Noah is already 3! Time flies too fast. He had a “Cars” and water themed party – our kind of fun. Looks like everyone had some fun in the sun!

Bike Race Weekend

Downtown Roanoke had a bike race this weekend that Donny got to take part in. We missed Saturdays hill climb, but Donny competed in Sunday and Monday’s race. He came in 6th Sunday and 1st on Monday!! We had such a blast cheering for him – although it was hot – but nonetheless fun! Maddie took an unexpected dunk in the kiddie/beverage pool Sunday, and, the Mayne family came out to support Donny on Monday. Mimi also go to see her first bike race too.

Sunday’s Race:

Monday’s 4th of July Race:
