Amazing Butterflies Exhibit at the Museum

Today June, Mason, and I went with my friend Sherry and her grandson Will to the Museum of York County, to the traveling summer exhibit – this year it’s Amazing Butterflies.  It really was so good.  June, and the boys, too, loved the bean bag toss game. June got this picture of one of the […]

Water sliding

Yesterday we were back at the Y water park in Lake Wylie with our BIG group from church.  Clara was with us this time, and had a great time on the water slides – as did all the kids 🙂

Burlington BMX Gold Cup Race
