Saucer Summer Tour Part 16


Sunday,  June 24th,  2012
Today we went to Aunt Denise and Uncle Dennis’s house.  We just relaxed catching up with Marisa before she headed to the lake with her friends.  I can’t believe she will be starting her Senior year of high school in the fall!!  The boys were excited to watch their movies in the theatre while the grown ups talked J
Tim, April, Ian and Simon came over for dinner.  We had an awesome spiral cut ham and all kinds of summer sides!!  The boys were super excited to try the new Capri Suns V.  They have a complete serving of vegetables in every pouch!!

Today was a driving day.  We are headed to Green Bay and drove  455 miles.  We drove through Chicago and Milwaukee along the way.  It was 4:30pm when we pulled into the driveway at Aunt Kathy and Uncle Neil’s.  We visited a short time and headed straight for Bay Beach!!  We were in luck as it was kids’ day and the kids could ride unlimited FREE!!  Tickets at Bay Beach are only 25cents and each ride is 1-2 tickets to ride.  We started on the ferris wheel.  It has to be the FASTEST one I’ve ever been on!!  We went all the way around 24 times.  After the ferris wheel we did the train ride.  Then Alan and Eddie stayed with Mommy and did the super fast spinning swings.  Joey and Jack went to do some calmer rides with Aunt Kathy.  We did a bunch more rides and ordered pizza from Gallagher’s to be delivered.  The boys were up SUPER late!!

I Got Type 1 DiabetesMonday, January 1, 2018
  I went camping at Pupukea for Boy Scout winter camp. I was an SPL (the senior scout boy leader). My chest started to hurt with each move. I went to the nurse and she said it was only heartburn; she advised me to treat a heartburn you want to stay a from meats, eggs, cheese; any free carb foods; and eat foods like a bread, juices, milk; heavy carb foods; [all bad for a diabetic but we didn't know yet.] I went home a day earlier after the final fire bowl. The nurse and other medical professionals, at camp, told me all I needed was a hot shower and good night sleep because I was camping in the rain. When I came home and took a shower I couldn't even stand up. So my mom checked my blood sugar just to rule out that I wouldn't have diabetes. I was around 500. You should be 80-150. So, my mom rushed to Tripler (the big pink hospital) at 1:00 am because the hospital on Hickam is only a clinic for appointments and not ER. We rushed to t…
Saturday, June 30th, 2012 Today was the Looney Hooley at Teresa Berg’s.  We didn’t get there at the beginning so we didn’t play in the horse shoe tournament this year.  The boys sent straight to the kiddie pool to play.  It was great seeing all the Looney side of the family.  A group of us played Mexican Dominoes.  It was quite the game as no one seemed to be sure of the rules and we seemed to change them frequently throughout the game J  When the sun started going down someone got the fire going in the fire pit.  The smores supplies appeared and we had a yummy, sticky mess!!  It was a full moon so we decided it was finally dark enough for the fireworks at 10pm.  They were AMAZING and we taught the kids to scream, “Honk Honk” when they really liked them!!
I didn't have my camera out, but Alan took some pictures on a hand me down camera he got from Aunt Kathy.

Saucer Summer Tour Part 15

Friday, June 22nd, 2012 Today Uncle Tim took us to the neighborhood park and had the boys help him build a trebuchet (catapult). First they tried to lift the 25lb dumb bell.Then they used the lever part of the trebuchet to lift the 25kb dumb bell to see how much easier the lever made the job.Then they launched tennis balls and water balloons to see the difference in distance they would go based on the items’ weight.Finally we used our body weight to increase the force on the lever to see how far the items would go.It was a BLAST!!!
After Uncle Tim and the boys dismantled the trebuchet we headed back to the house for lunch.  After lunch we opened presents from Uncle Tim and Aunt April.  We played with our new toys!!  Then Uncle Tim had to go to work for a couple hours.  Simon took a nap and the older boys played hard J  When Tim got home he made us super tender chicken to make fajitas.  We ate quickly as Aunt April’s mom got 6 free passes to the opening showing of Brave!!  Ian couldn’t d…
