He said: Went down to the pool in the morning with the water wings, and let Gillian try the slide a few more times.  Gillian and Mara are both getting really good at swimming and floating.  Then we headed to a fruit stand on the way to Phil's.  Shelley was heading out of town and Phil invited us to stay another night.  Phil, Calvin and I went paintballing down the street from his house. Definitely need more than 3 people and definitely need to be in better shape, but it was still a lot of fun.  We all got a few good welts out of it.  Then it was pizza (4 pizzas, 2 of which were for Calvin), and Super Mario Wii to round out the night. Some people look at a glass and see it half full; others look at it and see a watermark on the table.

She said:  Calvin thinks uncle Brad is hilarious!!  Oh no!   Thanks again to the hospitality of family!  Ryan's speach improved noticeably from the first time we were at Phil's to now.  He said a happy and clear "Hi Uncle Phil" when we arrived.  He loves to fist bump everyone and giggles like crazy after.  So cute.  I bought a cheap pair of athletic type sandals that really help with talking.  Almost normal now.  The toe is still quite swollen but I can try to bend it now and not get stabbing pain.  So I'll keep that up.  Teenagers can sure eat alot of pizza!
