Happy Father's Day!

Wanna Party?

I referred to this family before in this post. I went to High School with Josh, and he has such a cute little family. I hope everything works out for him, and I am willing to pitch in to make it happen!

He is having a fundraiser at Big Surf this Saturday. So come party with your family, or just on a date with your husband! Reasonable price, great cause, the whole shabang.

Go! Have fun!

P.S- I would love to have a button for Josh on my side bar where I have a few others. But I am technically retarded and don't know how to make one. So if anyone wants to make one for me, I would love it! I don't know how difficult it would be.

DescriptionFriends and family,

Please forward this to as many people as you can!!!!

My friend Josh Wills has had Cystic Fibrosis since he was 6 months old. Now he is in desperate need of a Lung Transplant. We have partnered with Big Surf Waterpark and will be throwing a benefit fund raiser for Josh’s Long Transplant cost. It will be a Private night party (but anyone can come!) from 6:30PM to 10:30PM, June 27th. Big Surf is not normally open at night so this will be a special event! All the water attractions will be open for both adults and kids. We will also be selling BBQ meals in the park. Almost all of the sales from the entire night will be going directly to Josh. Big Surf is just about covering the entire cost of the event themselves (So please support Big Surf by going there this summer for their donation of their time, staff, and park for Josh!) The cost is $15 online or $20 at the door the night of the event. Meals will include a hamburger or hotdog, chips and a drink for $7.00. We will have free rafts for the wavepool for everyone, the Kiddy area will be open for younger swimmers, Volleyball and of course all the slides for everyone. This event is not limited to just friends and family of josh we are inviting everyone to raise as much money as we can for Josh and his family! If you cannot make it but wish to donate please go to to find out how.

Please contact me if you have any questions or interested in corporate donations or sponsors.

So please come out and enjoy the waterpark and have a great time at night without all the heat during the day to support Josh!!!!!!!

More Beach House

Friday morning Wendell took the kids to the pick your own strawberry fields with the Garns, Dunyons, and Johnsons. I stayed home to nurse Abigail without interruption and put her down for a good nap. And did the laundry and read my book. Heavenly.
(do you have the Beatles song stuck in your head now? I know I do;)

We had more strawberries than anybody could ever eat. Rebecca cut them up for strawberry short cake. Yumm...

When they got back we took advantage of the beach and laid out. Or I did. It was pretty chilly and overcast but I was determined to get rid of my Knott's Berry Farmer's tan. You have already seen how well that turned out;)

We left the kids home and went out to dinner Friday night and Saturday night. And even went to the Johnson's beach house to play some games. Boy, we Proffitts can get competitive! Who knew. O.K, I did.

More beach on Saturday but it was too cold to get rid of the lovely stripes I had on my arms. And I was so careful with the sunblock this time! Oh well...

Kids of course don't even notice the cold. They are somehow programmed not to care about cold and heat. I don't know how they do that. Cold sandy and wet? Who cares! We're at the beach!My mom was in her chair with her sweats on and a blanket, and the kids are running around in their bathing suits. The big kids were in the ocean all day, surfing, body surfing, and boogie boarding.

We left on Sunday but stayed for Sunday dinner first. Which was actually Sunday lunch. I wish we could have all of our Sunday dinners at the beach house.

The view from my spot at the dinner table. Eating dinner while watching the ocean. My two favorite things!;)

The big kids eating dinner. How lucky are they?

Some of the littles at dinner.

And a wedding on the beach we could see from our balcony. Lovely.

After dinner? Manis and pedis before heading home. At this point Wendell was starting to antsy to get on the road. And I was delaying. I didn't want to leave the beach. I needed at least two more days!
(my favorite 12 year old look)

I am contemplating taking a cue from my sisters and getting my very own beach house for the month next year right next to theirs. My MIL even said she would pitch in if she could stay with me part of the time. Hmmm...

On our way to the Beach House we stopped in Gila Bend for some dinner. When I got Abigail out of her carseat, she had a brand new major rash all over her face. Poor thing! I thought it must have been too hot in there for her, and she had a heat rash.


Roseola. All over her little body. If you click on her picture, you can kind of see it on her face. I had taken her to the doctor on Monday because she had a high fever and I wanted to make sure it wasn't another ear infection. I wanted to get antibiotics before we left for CA on Wednesday. Not an ear infection. Don't know what it is.

Until two days later when she breaks out in a fun rash all over her body.

Luckily it didn't seem to bug her, and her fever was gone. The worst was already over.

I think she is still cute though;)
