 Every Monday night, we try to have a Family Night or Family Home Evening (FHE).
Our friends, the Mantooths invited us to their apartment pool for a cook out and swimming for FHE.
 Each family did something different, the song and prayer, the lesson, the activity and the treat.
 We had a great time with the Rich, Stokes, Bare, Briggs and Mantooth families!

Belton was having to work harder than normal to breathe, so I called the doctor and ended up taking him in. The pediatrician sent him  to get a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia.
So we went across the street to the hospital with the radiology center and killed time.
Belton ate lunch, I was thrilled to see (and use!) this charging station.
 We had matching hospital bracelets.
 A kind nurse saw us waiting and brought Belton a coloring book and some crayons.

Belton had his x-ray (not fun) and then we waited for the results!
Poor guy did have the beginning of pneumonia. But luckily the caught it early enough that he just got sent him with a prescription for antibiotics- he didn't have to have an injection. 

He's doing much better now. We love our little trooper!

Matt's 25th Birthday

Matt's birthday weekend started with me going to McDonald's to get him a sausage biscuit and hash browns! I think he and Belton both enjoyed that!
 Later that evening, we took Belton to Grandmom and Granddad's house and went to see Edge of Tomorrow at Inwood Theater.

Then we went to The Ranch for a very yummy dinner! That has become our regular place for birthday dinners!
 The next day was Sunday- Matt's actual birthday. Here's Belton after church with his sweet tie on!
 Happy Birthday Mathew!!

Matt's "Birthday Party"

Matt invited his - video game playing - friends and their wives and kids to an awesome party venue, Noah's for a fun non-birthday get together! Really, he and his friends had been talking about doing this for a while. But it just happened to end up happening on his birthday weekend! We ordered pizza for everybody, a couple of friends brought a couple of things and I made cookies. Matt loved getting to play video games with a bunch of guys...which he hasn't really done in years! And most of us girls played some board games! We had a good time!
