An Afternoon with the Pages

We went to Louisville on Friday to see Graeme's surgeon. We found out that he does need a second palate surgery to close the fistula. It is scheduled for this summer. After the appointment, we had FUN! We spent the afternoon with the Pages, who traveled to China at the same time we did. We got to catch up with Tamara, Andy and Wyatt and meet his siblings, Zackary, Savannah and Julia.
First stop was extreme bowling!
We bowled in the dark with blinking lights and the kids and Moms all had fun! I realized after I started that I wasn't going to do to well with the recent blogging injury and resulting Cortisone shot in my right arm. Okay, let's face it, my first 4 bowls were gutter balls! I improved gradually but remained in last place. I begged Zachary to help me improve my score so I could beat his Mom in the end. Even with his help, I was too far gone and still came in last place:) Lily Wen won for our lane!

This is cool Mom!

After Graeme's first ball got stuck in the lane, we found this launcher and then we were in business. Getting the first ball out of the lane was an adventure all it's own!

Wyatt was all about his score and kept checking the electronic score board!

After bowling, the kids had some finger-licking good nachos.

Wyatt is still such a happy guy!
After bowling, we went to the Pages' house and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon! The kids played games and Tamara and I had a nice chat. Andy grilled a delicious dinner for us! Julia and Lily really hit it off and will both start Kindergarten in the Fall. Wyatt and Graeme raced around the house and just had fun being silly together. It was easy to see that they are both quite the characters. Wyatt even mentioned that he and Graeme had the same lips...pretty perceptive for one so small don't you think?
We took these pictures right before the Wee Ones and I headed home.

Wyatt and Graeme - quite the pair!

Julia and Lily Wen - a new friendship!

Lots of giggles!

I know Graeme had a great time because when we were leaving to go home, he hugged each of the Pages. We are all looking forward to our next visit! For more pics of our day, visit the Pages' blog at Life With the Pages The pic of Andy on their blog cracks me up!

Those are some happy kids!
Lainey saw her plastic surgeon this week as well, about her fistula...he wants to wait until she shows a need for a P-flap before closing it. I'd love to talk with you about what your surgeon said...I'm just not sure at this point, what the right direction is.

OK my friend, I'll let you into the secret of bowling success....use the buddy bumpers! Works like a charm, trust me....I know this from experience *wink*

Those pictures are just saturated with cuteness! So glad you all had such a fun trip. Although, I wish Graeme wasn't in need of the second surgery. Should this be the last one? Let us know when and I will be praying!
