We went to the water pad at Forest Park today with my friend Amber and her son. The boys loved it but got a little cold toward the end. What happened to the sun, anyway? And is that ledge Evan is sitting on really Jocelyn? She's getting quite a bit bigger! I love seeing the countdown clock when I log in to my blog...only 2 more months before she's here.

Graeden and Elliott both entered the ice cream eating contest. They loved it! I entered the pie eating contest...sorry no pics. Graeden the camera man wasn't in the mood to take photos. I leisurely ate my pie. Oh it was so good and I wanted to taste every bite. The entrance fee was only a dollar for a huge piece.

This impression behind Ethan, Tina's son Teancum, and Jett is that of a T-Rex. It's huge!

Our wonderful neighbor is a contractor and came over this evening and sawed a hole in the ceiling. Luckily, he could see the leak and saw that it was spraying out sideways and so water was pooling a couple of feet away. He tied a bib around it so that the water would at least drip down instead of ruining more of the ceiling. What's also nice is that this pipe is leaking cold water. I'd hate to pay for a hot water leak! As of right now, we have the water shut off to the house so that nothing gets worse in the night. Hopefully, it'll be fixed tomorrow afternoon when our neighbor comes home from work. I won't be here to know...Jett and I will be off to a wedding in St. George. For now, I'm glad I showered this afternoon and will be out of town. Poor Tymon either has to turn the water back on in the morning or stick his head in the water we filled the bathtub with in order to get ready in the morning. Graeden didn't want to stay another minute in this house and wants to spend the night with someone else. ha ha. That's cute. It'll be fun...like we're camping in our own home. No more dishes, laundry, oh this is good :0)!
The cousins (spearheaded by Arriah and Breanna) usually present a program of some sort at family gatherings. This one included the Pledge of Allegience, some patriotic songs, and lots of distractions by young Johns' boys. Breanna is singing in the photo below.

What's weird is that over the past couple of years Tymon has developed some allergies, too. But he's had itchy throat reactions to simple things like avacados, grapes and watermelon. I think that it'd be good for both of us to be tested. I am having a hard time believing that I'm allergic to the pollen in the air...and who's really allergic to grapes? Maybe it's a pesticide of some sort that's been on the fruit.
