We started off with Lincoln showing Cora, Woof-woof, and me how to hold on when riding the bus.

Lincoln LOVED being at Cousin Peyton’s house, and trying out his trampoline and his fort/sandbox that Jordan made (wow).

While there, we joined in the celebration of Drew’s 3rd birthday, with delicious food, family and friends, face painting for the kids (thanks to Kari and Jordan), and then at the end, a balloon release in the park across the street. The whole evening felt special, but the balloon part was my favorite.




We also got to participate in the Day for Drew memorial golf tournament and fundraiser (no, I didn’t golf, but Mark did), which was great.

The best part of the week was spending time with family.

And, in other news, Cora may be developing a Stogie problem.
