The lables have papa Joel in his Kayak wet suit with "want some...can't have any!" written below! Perfect!

Uncle Joels funeral was beautiful. A wonderful celebration of his very full life. It was great to see people we haven't seen in a long time. He took his last ride in his green truck and we said goodbye. What a giant of a man who touched many lives. Mine included.

We went to the Newport Aquarium with Grandma and Grandpa and Joe and Lindsay. It was a lot of fun! Shawn loved the shark tubes, he laid on the ground "talking" to the sharks swimming under his feet. Haley LOVED the sea otters and little mark loved everything! We had a good time!
