Splash Park

So it's officially Fall...and we're not really ready to say goodbye to summer. However, here in Michigan, we've had some really pleasant weather as of late and we took advantage of it last weekend. Not to far from our house is a great riverside park that has a "fountain thingy" that kids play in often throughout the summer. Well, for whatever reason, we thought we'd check it out in mid september, and to our surprise the fountain/sprinkler was still working. Leigh and I were somewhat leary of "submerging" Greys braces, but ultimately we were like "come on, lets just give thanks that he can participate in an activity like everyone else. who cares if his braces get wet." so we let him play in the "splash Park" as grey called it, and he loved it!





If you look closely you'll see grey's braces were "wrapped" in Meijer bags (our local grocery store's plastic bags) It was the best solution we could think of and, yeah it worked pretty well. :)

Here's a little video of Grey enjoying the Splash Park!

love to all,

I love the water park pictures. He's so darn cute and such a little dare devil.

Also read up on the bladder news. That's great!! I hear ya about the ditropan. I was so hesitant on putting Nellie on it, but it's working and doing what we need to do. We experience the same side effect - over heating. Usually isn't a big deal. I just don't keep her out too long on those hot summer days.

Looks like you guys are doing well! Enjoy this cool crisp fall weather.

Oh my crazy goodness that is adorable! So fun! And when I saw the new blog header I almost squealed like a 11 year old at a Justin Bieber concert!! (but Jet's in bed so I refrained somehow) lol. I love his spikey hair! And yet it makes him look way too grown up so I'm conflicted...I'm always part "why can't they just stay little?" and part "I love how much they grow and change every day". I just adore our little boys don't you?
