Yesterday we had a cookout and invited some friends over.. We had a great time!
Susan and Curt brought there son Ethan (from guatemala) and their exchange student Thais from Brazil. Lisa and Mike came and broght Billy and Sierra. And Kole's Big Sib, Wells from the U of I came. It was a small but fun crowd!
It was so much fun, I didn't even take any pictures! shame on me!
The kids played in the pool and Wells, kept surprising them from outside the pool, it was hilarious! After they were out the water continued with the hose and glasses of water being flung at each other.
We had quite the menu: Hamburgers, brats, ribs, salad, pasta salad, fresh veggie tray with dip, chips, watermelon, cantaloupe, chocolate brownies and gooey butter cake.
We did not even need dinner last night. ha ha
We talked and kidded around and just really enjoyed ourselves... we really need to do this more often!
Reiko and Sweetpea did relatively well, once the initial excitment was over, then after a couple hours it was more stimulation than they could handle... Time to really work on the training again. Poor Ethan was so close to the ground that Reiko thought he was his own personal lollypop. Billy being tall, Reiko thought it would be fun to jump as high as he could to get him to come down to his level so he could play with him....
Sweetpea on the other hand, did really well.
I think the kids would really like to do this again. Maybe not this year, but who knows...
