Brodey is like family to us.  Ethan, Olivia, Drew and Brodey spent a lot of time together growing up.  He is like my son from another mother.  Today is his 15th birthday.  Here are some flashback pics of all of them.

Just your friendly neighborhood Spiderman preventing crime in the city.  He had time to pose for a picture with Olivia and me. 

Salmon Ladder

Alex attempting the salmon ladder.  He almost had it.  I guess Jill is going to have to build one now.  :)

Birthday Party

I put together an impromptu birthday party at the last minute so Jake and Ryan could celebrate their birthdays together.  Jake's birthday is July 23rd, he turned 6 and Ryan's is August 12th.  He will be 5. It was fun considering it only took 15 minutes to pull off.  



Ethan thinks kissing the fish is lucky.  He does catch a lot of fish! 

Alex's turn to kids the fish! 
Olivia refused to kiss the fish.

Friends in Iowa

We had a few stow aways when we left Ohio.  Jacob, Savannah, and Georgia.  
My 3 kids, 3 Ohio friends, and 3 Iowa friends.  

Returning to Ohio.  We had a lot of fun!
