Week with Mamita

While TJ's mom was here we went bowling, to the Riverwalk, ate at Rainforest Cafe (to my boys' delight), explored the Tower of America (too expensive to ride to the top ;), ate Colombian food and celebrated TJ turning 33 on August 6th! We also bought a car- ughhhh. Our car that we bought right as we got married finally gave up the ghost and died for good. It needed a new engine and wasn't worth it. It was definitely a tender mercy that it died right as TJ went out of town for a week and that Ruth was here for us to go car shopping several times without kids. It's a 2009 Toyota Corolla with a lot of miles on it but we got a good deal on it and we're crossing our fingers it's like all the other Toyotas that Wengerts have had and it'll go to 300k+ miles! And we can't get away from the color grey apparently.... ;)

My boys LOVED bowling- it was actually so fun to see all of them get so excited! Benson would try to jump up and down and clap his hands! And he only wanted the red ball. After the first game, Bens and Shad were done and bored though. But Ty and Lev could've gone on and on. They looked so cute in their bowling shoes too ;)

We went to Sea World with Carrie and Danielle and their kids. Levi's new dream is to be selected as the child to feed a fish to the orcas so we sat close to where they chose the kids last time. No such luck and it meant we were on the 2nd row of the splash zone. Both little boys fell asleep on me and I didn't have time to move before the 55 degree water hit us! ha! Poor little boys woke right up!! What a mean mom to have them woken up like that!

We drove down to Kyle for Mrs. Sparks' Class Reunion party! She is amazing! She had about 50-60 people over and kids were yelling and running everywhere!! They were in heaven! Her daughter is having health problems and her and her husband are going out of the country the next day yet she still took the time to throw us a party, provide food and make a cute little treat for her kids that say "OWL always love you"- she seriously has made such a difference in our lives! Not sure how any teacher at our new school could ever top our experience at Negley with Mrs. Sparks!

I watched my friend, Marsha Hunter's kids so I had 8 kids under the age of 8, with 7 boys and 1 little girl! It was a little crazy!! Poor Marsha is almost 9 months pregnant with #5 and the gender is a surprise! I'm so excited for them!

Our "new" car!

I found this little orphan child taking a shower in my bathroom ;) He has some sort of towel thingy that is supposed to dry water off you quicker but he was using it for "playing in the rain."
