On Friday night Corbin and I went to Brigitte's pool party at the Natatorium. I didn't want to take the other kids because I figured they could get cranky since the party was from 9:00 -10:30 pm and also because they don't allow kids to wear floaties. DUMB. So I took my big kid swimmer and he had a blast playing with some of his cousins. The best thing about the Natatorium is definitely their big tube slide.It's pretty fun.
On Saturday morning we headed over for Brigitte's baptism. She and her cousin had combined baptisms. It was perfect. I wish every baptism could be special like that. We still all remember going to my nephew Braden's baptism when like 20 or 30 kids got baptized. It was 2 or 3 hours long. It was the worst! Ha. Anyway a special cousin baptism was great and will sure be memorable for those cute cousins I'm sure. Afterwards we headed over to a church pavilion for a lunch.
Saturday night Scott's work had a family picnic at the zoo. It was super hot and pretty crowded. A lot of people work at Ameriben. It was fun though. Our kids LOVED it. We haven't been to the zoo in years and years. It was a smashing success plus free dinner which also means no cooking. Winning all around. The kids were so excited and adorable. Cute little Ryan especially loved it. He gets so hot and sweaty in an instant. Plus with his short little legs running for 2 hours straight, that boy must have been tired last night.
Just three more weeks until school starts. We will see what summer fun we can cram in until then.

|That bunny was huge. Piper's covering up quite a bit and you can't get a sense of how fat that rabbit was.|
|So red and sweaty.|
