wrappin' up summer...

So summer is over and we haven't had a lot of time to let ya know how our summer ended but it sure did end in a bang but...

First, Scott got paid to fly out to Waterloo, Wisconsin and demo the new 2009 Trek Mountain Bikes and he loved it!

We also got to go see my family for the 4th of July and celebrate with good food, lots of water skiing and 4 wheeling.

Our last vacation trip was to Flagstaff, Arizona where we had a Berrett family reunion and it was so fun to hang out at the pool, visit slide rock (although we couldn't go in the water cause there was to much bacteria), and spend time with the family. we also updated our family picture which turned out pretty well.

To end the summer with a bang, labor day evening came and we found out that our swamp cooler has been leaking water into the downstairs basement the whole summer! Our downstairs neighbors came home from a summer of sales in Texas to find that not only had it ruined the walls but there was black mold growing! we had to leave right away and were out of our house for almost 3 whole weeks. We were blessed to have gracious neighbors and family that let us stay with them a few nights and Scott's parent's hooked us up at a hotel for a few days (which was very nice since Scott got super sick and was throwing up for the whole 3 days we were there). I had been sick the last two months but never knew why I was getting sick. Its just nice to know that I'm not going crazy. here are some pic's of the mold.

okay so it really wasn't this bad. we forgot to take pictures and this is what i found on the internet.

All in All it was a good summer, one that we'll never forget!
