This afternoon I returned from an errand and found the boys (all three of them) enjoying the sandbox. Jon and Adam worked really hard on a sand castle masterpiece! They wanted to be sure I put a picture of it on the blog. (See below)
Jon's boss has been very generous about getting sports tickets for his employees' families to enjoy. Today we had tickets to go to the Columbus Crew Major League Soccer game. I happened to read online this week that the Ohio Historical Center (which is right next to Crew Stadium) is free on the Saturdays in August. So, we spent a few hours there before heading over to the game. The boys loved the collection of (stuffed) native Ohio animals. They also really enjoyed the variety of old vehicles on display. There were several interactive stations set up for families. We really had fun! We were very hot sitting in direct sunlight at the soccer game... and the game ended up being scoreless... but we still had a really good time. Ray was especially interested in watching the game and expressed interest in learning to play as well.
(Yes, Adam and I were there too. Adam just didn't want to have his picture taken!) It was a busy, fun family day! Thank you God!
