Celebrating Birthdays

We took our grandson Dakota with us to Holiday World to celebrate his 12th birthday last week. The kids had a blast, well, I did too! It is the best place ever. We try to make it an annual trip. His party is Sunday at Camp HIHO. It looks like a great place to have a party. The kids will get to fish, swim and ride in boats.
We are also having a fund raiser on Saturday in Bailey's memory. Two other families are also included. One family lost their son a couple of years ago and the other is my co-workers sister who has ovarian cancer and is going to Houston next week for treatment. It's so awesome to live in a town where people come together to help one another in need. It's good to know in these times that there is still so much good and compassion in the world that sometimes goes unnoticed. There is a corn hole tournament, bake sale, silent auction and a lot of other fun things for people to do. The weather is suppose to be great both days, we are thankful for that. Hope everyone has a great weekend, we are!

How fun, love all the pictures! Good luck with the fundraiser. There is still a lot of good going on in this world, but like you said, we don't always notice. Hope y'all have a fantastic weekend!

you're completely right Marla, there are so many nice and kind people in our area. I didn't know you worked with Debbie's sister? Which one is she? We go to church w/ them.

Have fun this weekend!
