When the kids arrived they followed dinosaur footprints to a nest of dinosaur eggs. Then they got to dig the dinosaurs out. After that we played pin the tail on the dinosaur, and then did a pinata.
I made the pinatas because we couldn't find any dinosaur themed ones. I think they were a bit too strong though because we broke the wooden stick before the pinata broke!

The hospital was really nice though. Aiden was in the Jungle Room and he had fun looking for all the animals in the mural. They also have wagons for them to ride around in on their way to surgery.
It took him a long time to wake up. The surgery took only an hour, but we didn't leave the hospital until 10:00. He never really complained about his teeth, but really let everyone know that he did not like the IV in his foot. This is what his foot looked like a couple hours after we got home. They really did a good job and you couldn't even tell the IV had been there by that evening.
This last weekend Steve put in our new shed including laying the concrete and anchoring it down. It's just big enough to hold the lawn mower and our gardening tools, but at least they aren't sitting out in the weather anymore.
And finally a picture of our crazy tall corn plants. Looks like we are only going to get three ears of corn from them, but Aiden had fun planting them and watching them grow all summer long. The cucumber plant on the other hand way out did itself. I've been giving away cucumbers by the armload and we still have an entire vegetable drawer filled with them in the fridge. Looks like we'll have a ton of tomatoes too if they ever ripen. We also have two good sized watermelons growing. Hopefully they will have time to get nice and big before it gets too cold.
