Fireworks, Toilet Works, and more…
So, we headed off to spend a couple days at Whitewater State Park with Stephen’s family… my parents, sister and friend, and Drew’s (brother-in-law) parents and sister, were joining us for a cookout on the fourth! It was looking like a great holiday weekend. And it was… Here’s some pictures of our BBQ:
On Saturday, Don & Linda rented a pontoon for us. It was a great time. I have more pics than those below but out of respect, I’ll only post those that I would want posted of me :O)
So, you’re probably wondering where the Toilet Works comes in. So, here’s the deal… We got there on Thursday evening and Grandma (you’ll notice she wasn’t in any picture above…) got sick. I mean, sick with the flu virus. She was throwing up all night and stayed in her room in the cabin all day on the 4th. Don was also wrestling with the bug on the 4th. Everyone has a grand day on the 4th & then the 5th comes.
Saturday & Sunday, July 5th & 6th, will go down as history as the most flushed day in the history of the Betts/Temple/Jackson Home… Out of everyone that attended our shindig (Don, Linda, Ash, Drew, Grandma P, Dad, Mom, Sarah, JD, Greg, Renee, Stacy, Stephen, Madeline, Charlie, Sophia, and I) – that’s 17 people – 13 people clung to the porcelean those two days. We would consider it food poisoning but Grandma was sick when she came and Tim, Stephen’s brother who wasn’t able to come, was sick at home… so that leaves a nasty virus that hit hard! Not a very fun way to wrap up a great weekend but oh well… what do you do? Surrendar to the flush :O)
