Sarah and Jon flew out with Kason to visit San Francisco on the 24th and met up with Laurissa and Alison. It was nice to get away and visit with family. We returned home on July 28th, the trip was amazing and we had a blast, we wish we could have been able to stay longer. Here is a little video of the pictures that we took and the things we did.

On July 19, 2008 Laurissa and Alison boarded an airplane for their first trip alone to California to visit Grandma and Grandpa Shafer. They have been so excited to take this trip for weeks. With constant inquiries to ensure the trip has not been postponed, the day finally came the took off on Saturday at 10:00 am and reached their destination safely and have been having a blast since they got there. Grandma and Grandpa are loving the time with them so far. Sarah and I will fly out with Kason on July 24, 2008 and we will all be returning on Monday the 28th. The girls were lucky enough to get to ride on a plane with the California State flag on it. We call it the flying bear......
On July 15, 2008 Sarah's brother David returned home after serving two years as a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He served the Unica mission in New York and had a wonderful time serving the lord. It is good to have him back home and the girls are thrilled to be able to spend time with him again.

Happy 4th of July we hope you all had a wonderful day and those of you who traveled got to your destinations safely. We spent the day celebrating our countries independence at home. With a small BBQ and swimming we tired out the kids and enjoyed Fireworks.
On June 27, 2008 Kason underwent surgery for the placement of tubes in his ears and to have his adenoids removed. The poor kid couldn’t eat after midnight the night before and could only drink clear liquids until 11:30 that morning. With surgery scheduled for 2:30 pm, he went in in good spirits. 15 minutes later the surgery was done. The doctor stated that the surgery went very well that Kason was a champ (just like his dad). He had a hard time waking up from the drug induced sleep, but after a good two hour nap, he was ready to go home. The recovery was fairly short, he was eating normal food such as bread and baby food by the end of the day. He has made a full recovery and has shown that the surgery has helped him to sleep better and has not had an ear infection since (knock on wood). WAY TO GO KASON!!
