Mila and Lucy are about the same age. They are great friends just like Mary and Joanne were when they were their age. Its amazing to think that 30 years ago, Mary and Joanne were doing many of the same things that Lucy and Mila do today.
Here is a little scene with three. Little John, The Carpenter and the Lady.
They are all married into a family and moving into a new home. At about that time, the hammers came out. The Carpenter put on his belt, made funny faces and pounded the hammer to the wall to fix the house.
They all seem happy. Moving is fun and so many memories to be made in their new house.
My name is Frank. But I let Bella call me Fwank because it’s cute. She say’s, You’re Fwank and point her finger at me.
Bella was wearing a nice summer dress tonight with all the best summer colors. She played with chalk, read a book, played in a fort, danced and took a bath.
It was a great night with Michelle and Bella, or as we call them Michellelabella.
Camille’s having a baby. Soon. She hopes. We all hope soon because she is ready.
The gals had a little get together and we captured some of the moments which you can catch here too – Camille’s Baby Shower. Danny the Chef made an incredible brunchy spread which was amazing and Tu topped it off with a whopping 300 egg rolls. With an estimated 20 guest that was 9.5 egg rolls for each person to eat. So much food and what a wonderful day.
Ever year it seems like one of my nieces or nephews is going to Sr Prom. This year it was Chloe! Chloe is headed off the St Mary’s, a McKenna tradition it seems.
Instead of going with a traditional date, Chloe and 3 other friends decided to go as a group. I remember when I was in High School you had to ask someone to go with you and it was nerve-wrecking and seldom fun. It seems like the kids finally figured it all out.
You can check the whole gallery at this link - Chloe’s Prom.
There is the Boston Marathon. There is the Mud Run. There are the Olympics and then there is Oliver’s jogathon. And I must say, Oliver’s jogathon was the most epic run in the history of the world.
We have not tallied up the total in funds that were raised by Oliver but I believe that it ranges in the hundreds and hundreds of dollars – perhaps even as high as $500 dollars. Now that’s impressive and keep in mind that this is a 5 year old boy.
Oliver had his own Indiegogo campaign which helped him raise funds for the cause. It was called $3 for Ollie. You can check it out here. $3 Dollars for Ollie.
Preparation and Anxiety
Oliver was prepared and anxious. He carb loaded the night before and his mom and dad kept plenty of Gatorade stocked in the Fridge so that he could load up on electrolytes before the race. The tension was palpable as Oliver lined up getting ready for the big moment.
When the gun fired, Oliver sprinted like the wind. He sprinted as fast and furiously as his legs could take him. He sprinted like Eamon Coughlin – the famous Irish Runner from the 1970′s.
Oliver ran 8 laps and won a medal. This was no ordinary medal. It was a gold medal and all the kids loved it.
If you want you can check out this video of the Most Epic Run in the History of the World. It was made even more epic by combining the run with fire and Dokken music.
I got the cutest message on my Voicemail today from Oliver. He wanted $3 for a fundraiser. This made my day. Watch and hear the cuteness.
