10th Anniversary Cruise

For our 10th Anniversary, the hubby and I set out for our first-ever cruise. We were so excited!

Our cruise left from Port Canaveral so we decided to visit the Kennedy Space Center while we were there. Roy hadn't been since he was a child and was beyond thrilled to get to see it all again after so many years.

The first night of our cruise, Roy surprised me with a beautiful anniversary ring. He even got down on one knee and asked me if I would still be willing to spend the rest of my life with him. It was perfect!

Formal Nights aboard the ship! It was so fun to dress up for supper and spend time over dinner just talking.

The ports were beautiful! We visited Cozumel, Costa Maya, Belize, and Isla Roatan. We had a great time snorkeling, relaxing on the beach, and walking through the cities. It was awesome!

Lydia's birthday party at Chuck E Cheese, July 17th

Lydia wanted to have her party at Chuck E Cheese this year. She invited several friends from church so we had a good group there. They played for what seemed like hours, ate pizza, had an ice cream cake, sang songs with Chuck E ... in all they had a lot fun!

Mommy's Birthday, July 16th 2010

Happy Birthday to me! I spent the day relaxing with my family and loving every minute of it. The kiddos were so excited to give me presents that they had picked out themselves: Abigail picked out a bag of Hershey's Kisses, Caleb got me a bottle of green nail polish, Lydia got me a bottle of brown nail polish, and Daddy picked up a bottle of my favorite perfume. Perfect!

Yard work and play

We spent the day off outside with the kiddos cleaning up the yard a bit and letting them play on their scooters. Mixing fun with work is how the Denton's roll!


The kiddos were so excited to have the opportunity to set off fireworks in the back yard. We bought a package of miscellaneous stuff and they sat in the back of the truck and enjoyed the show. Our house is located in the ideal spot to watch the Lake Winnie fireworks so we didn't even have to leave our yard. It was a perfect, relaxing way to end the day!

Fourth of July Celebration at WPBC

The choir and orchestra worked hard on preparing a musical for the first annual July 4th picnic and concert. The great Marty Hamby was available to come play for us since our pianist was recovering from an emergency c-section at the time. It was hot but we made it through. The response from everyone was very positive so I have a feeling we will be doing this again next year!

Visit to MeMa and PePa's house, June 28th - July 1st

The kids had spent the last few weeks at Camp MeMa and were having a blast. The last week of their stay I headed down to spend some time in The Tville too! We had so much fun playing in the pool while MeMa and PePa were at work and then we had fun with them when they got home from work. And of course a visit to Thomasville wouldn't be complete without dinner at Crawdaddy's with Jamie and Krissy!
