Mom and Andy Knee Surgery

Today Mom and Andy both had knee Surgery. They have the same Doctor, Gary Levengood, who did their Surgeries back to back. They both had an ACL replacement and Andy also had his torn Meniscus repaired. We figured it was a great idea to just get it all done in one day. That way I could take care of both of them at the same time. Mom has a chair at her house that we call the two butt chair, this is where mom and Andy sat for a week after surgery. We decided to stay the week at moms house so I could help take care of mom while dad went to work. They both had a huge brace that was hooked up to an ice machine. They had to unhook it anytime they needed to get up. Since it was such a project, if one got up to go to the bathroom I made the other one get up too!! Dad and I had to get up in the middle of the night to give medicine and replace their ice. Hopefully they will feel better soon.

Getting ready for surgery!

Waiting, Waiting, & more Waiting!

Finally home!

So Tired!

Firehouse with the Calicone's

After the County meet we went with our friends the Calicone's to the Firehouse. Fred works there are decided it would be fun to let the kids sit on the trucks and spray the hose. The kids had a really fun time.
Megan and Anna

Having fun with Fred, Steven, Julie and Anna

Gwinnett County Swim Championship

Megan Made it to County her first year swimming in the Summer League. We are so proud of her. She was able to swim with her relay team. She was invited to do both the 100Free relay and the 100 Medley relay. She ended up only swimming in the free relay so that another little girls got the opportunity to swim one of the relays. She did such a great job. The County meet is held at Georgia Tech in their big indoor aquatic center. This is the same place that the Olympics were swam back in 1996. Megan was so excited that she got to swim in the same pool as Michael Phelps. We decided that since we had to be at the pool so early in the morning that we would get a hotel close by and spend the night down town. Megan thought that was awesome. We spent the night playing Rummy cube together. That next morning we got to the pool bright and early and got Megan all ready to go.
In the Hotel all ready and excited to go!

Girls Camp

Since I am the 1st counselor in the Grayson Ward YW Presidency I was able to go down to girls camp for the night to see the skits. Our girls did a fantastic job. The theme this year was Dr. Seuss, Oh the places you will go. Each ward was given a different book to use for a skit. Our ward got The foot book. Chloe McWilliams choreographed a really cute dance to some music with the words to the book in the background. Our skit was the best by far!!

Waterton Waverunners Pool Party

Tonight was the end of summer swim pool party at Waterton. The girls had a really fun time. Megan got a cool metal from here coaches, so that made her night. They got to play Limbo, hula hoop, and do relays. Megan and I swam in the relay and she almost beat me. She is a great little swimmer. Alexis won limbo, which made her extremely happy. Also the kids got to shave Coach Jeremy's head. For some reason Megan didn't want to do it so she just watched her friends do it. We had a great night with friends, and are grateful we joined such a great swim team.

UNO with grandpa

The girls had a fun time playing cards with Grandpa today. They really love their grandpa.

Black Widow

A few months ago I took the trampoline apart and put it in the garage. When we were leaving today and got in the car Alexis yelled spider! Well it happened to be a BLACK WIDOW and she had layed eggs and they had already hatched. There were a million little black widow spiders all over the wheel of the trampoline. I thought I was going to have a freak out moment, but everyone was calm and Andy took it down to the road and we torched her and her babies! It was terrible.

4th of July Fireworks on the 3rd!

4th of July is on a Sunday this year so we watched fireworks on Saturday night. This year for fireworks we were invited by some friends, Fred and Julie Calaicone, from swim team to watch fireworks in their neighborhood. Their daughter Anna swims at the YMCA and Waterton with Megan. We had a really fun time. The fireworks were great and we had a front row seat in their driveway. Megan and Alexis sat even closer than us with Anna a few houses down. Fred is a firefighter and was near by in case anything got crazy. There are a few guys in the neighborhood who set the fireworks off themselves with a homemade switchboard. It was really cool to see how they did it.

Yearly water slide at the Baugh's

It was finally time to bring out the water slide. This is such a fun tradition. We have been enjoying it for several years now. The kids have so much fun but I think the adults end up acting more like crazy kids than the kids do. Andy had a bad knee so he couldn't play this time. After much fun we relaxed and had some lunch. Such a fun day was had by all.



Alexis got a road rash on her face and that ended her day!

Someone always ends up bleeding and this year was no different!
