Here are the highs and lows of our week
HIGH: We went to visit our awesome cousins and experience Dinosaurland. Upon seeing the giant Pteranodon sculpture from the parking lot, Cannon exclaimed, "I WANT TO LIVE HERE FOREVER!!!" He almost got his wish when our car broke down....but we'll save that for the low...

|This is what you do in heaven all day, according to the 4-yr. old|
|They can't get enough of dinosaurs in these here parts|
LOW: Our van died! It started making this awful clanking sound so we thought we better get it checked out. The mechanic told us we weren't to drive it a minute more. Diagnosis: Major engine problem It gets lower--the Repair: $5500. That's just enough to make you think about getting a new car.
The nice part of this is that the mechanic (and neighbor of cousins) had a van he wasn't using and brought us the keys so we could borrow it to get home and use until we got a new one?! How is that for generosity and kindness?!!
We visited the house where my Dad was born and raised. Well, almost--he was actually born across the street in his cousin's house that no longer exists. But this is the home he was raised in. The girls climbed all the trees on the property--with permission from my mom's "adopted" sister who lives there now.
The girls had their end-of-school hoopla and merry-making
I guess the only low would be that all these school events were packed in the same 3 days!
Welcome summer! What is your high low?
