Summer Party

Gigi and Eli were busy making cookies.
The boys in orange.
While we waited on everyone to arrive these two played peek a boo at the door. Baylor loves Mr. Eli and so do I!!!
Parker was very happy watching Miss Gigi.
Eating outside.
The Miller family
Andi and Baron
Brian with his sweet girls, Gabrielle and Lynley.
Dean and Debbie Folkening and Melissa Folkening and her husband.
Eli was busy driving.
Pals.
Once again these two had a great time together.
Kaylee is so adorable!
We had tons of food.
Parker had fun watching all the kids play.
Eli was checking Cooper out.
Most of the guys with Dean.
I don't know why we didn't get a picture with all the wives. They were all here but were busy with all the kids:)
I am so blessed to have Andi in my life. She truly is a great friend and an awesome Mommy.
Gigi was quite happy with her ice cream.
Parker kept laughing at her while she ate it, too funny.
Gabrielle ate her ice cream and played with the cash register. She was giving us some good deals.
Yum!
Campbell bouncing in the bounce house.
Since it was so hot the kids took some breaks inside. There was lots of shopping to be done.
Cohen looks just like his Daddy.
The kids had a great time.
We all took showers before bed. He was covered in dirt from head to toe and his head was soaked with sweat. He played hard and slept great:)

Last night we had a party with lots of friends from high school. The guys in Tom's grade all help sponsor the hole in one hole for the Matt Folkening golf outing and they get together each year before the outing to present the money to his parents. Matt was such an outgoing young man with a zest for life. He truly was a great friend to all these guys and is greatly missed. It is so nice to be able to get together with so many old friends and watch the families grow over the years. It think there were around 35 people with 15 of them being age 7 and under. The boys had a great time. They were wringing wet with sweat and covered in dirt by the end of the night. All the kids played so well together and had so much fun. We had Kopper Kettle for dinner and an ice cream sundae bar for dessert. The kids really liked the ice cream with all the candy toppings. They were all so cute. It was such a special night and a great way to remember a great friend.
