Uncle Bill's Birthday

On a rainy Saturday recently (oh wait, every Saturday is rainy!), we got together at Gram and Grandpa's house to celebrate Uncle Bill's birthday. We enjoyed seven layer dip, barbecue, and a delicious yellow cake with chocolate icing. The kids had a blast playing together while the adults ate and watched football. Happy 37th birthday, Uncle Bill.

A Police Visit

Will has been VERY obsessed lately with policemen. Recently, Ray accidentally set off our house alarm and instead of calling our home number to verify that everything was okay, they called Ray's cell phone, which was in his car. To make a long story short, the police came out to the house to make sure everything was okay. Will responded with a mixture of fear and interest. He informed me that they had to convince them that they weren't bad guys. He had already been asking a lot of questions about jail and policemen before this incident, and afterwards, it took off to a whole new level! He is just a little afraid of the alarm system now! Ray had the great idea (I think) of taking Will by a police station. He had a wonderful time and was so excited to see the car and motorcycle and to peek inside a jail. They were very nice to him there, and he came home grinning from ear to ear! Stay tuned for Halloween pictures of him as a police officer!
