my blog entry, I realized the battery wasn't the issue then, and we didn't actually replace it. So we ended up replacing the alternator and the battery. My dad was able to get a garage to work on our van right away, which was a miracle, because the soonest appointments anywhere were the next Wednesday, and THAT wasn't going to work!
Thursday after we went to a local waterpark. I used to go there with the older boys when we were stationed in Ohio, but it has really changed since then! The kids had a really fun time. Grace faced her fears and went down a really steep water slide as well as diving off the indoor high dive! Anna did too, although she wasn't as initially scared. We went at 3:00, which was perfect timing, as the daycares were all leaving! I think Micah, Drew, and Verity had the best time though. They loved the place! It was good to get that much energy run off of them.
So we had an absolutely lovely week of vacation, which of course ended way too soon.
