Ellie's Arm Celebration Day!!!

We celebrated Ellie's broken arm this weekend (or should I say, healed broken arm) at Alabama Adventure. It was a marvelous celebration. The girls had such a blast and Rob and I have officially hit "old"...we were dragging by the end of the day, motion sick and suffering from head trauma as we endured the "hurricane" ride, roller coaster, and tube slides. Mamaw kept Jenna and the boys ALL DAY, seriously for 12 hours, while we played! Highlights from the day: Ellie and Claire ate chocolate glazed doughnuts from Krispy Kreme, water sliding ALL day, standing in line for ONE HOUR to ride the stupid log ride (the pic from the ride is awesome though), eating Dip N Dots, surfing on Daddy's back in the Lazy River, and riding the roller coasters. I am grateful Ellie's arm has healed and she is now officially out of her cast. We do however have the cast at home (uncut) because Claire pulled it off of her arm on the way to the doctor last Thursday. The weekend was fun and very memorable and I am thankful we were able to spend all day with just the "big girls" since it is not often we are able to do so.

YOu all look so wonderful, how great that Ellie got her cast off and got to enjoy the day.
The boys are getting to be typical, beautiful Pates. I can't wait to see them again!
Take care,
