Exeter Summer Picnic ~ 2008

Friday evening we attended the Madison at Exeter Apartment Summer Picnic. This apartment complex is special to Chris and I because it was our first home together. We watched our apartment being built in early 2001 and moved in April 2001. Our cute 2 bedroom/1.5 bath apartment was home for 4 1/2 years before we moved into this house. I also got into leasing apartments because of this complex. I worked at a sister property in 2004 before staying home a year after Ryan's birth and when I went back to work in 2007, I was sent to this property! It was great working there for the past year and a half. I love the residents (ok...there are some crazy ones that I won't miss!) and my co-workers were great to work with.

It was so nice to see the residents and introduce them to Kara. They were all very excited to see who that little one was in my tummy for 9 months! A huge thank you to Chad and Brandi for inviting me and my family back to share in this special event! We had a great time- just wish it wasn't sooo hot and to have spent more time with you guys! Good Luck with everything in the future! :)

Chad had a great idea with the dunking tank to help raise money for a Kidney Walk. They actually raised over $1,000 by the end of the night! We all had fun trying to dunk Chad- I hit the target twice but it never triggered him to fall?! Finally they allowed me to just push it....well I pushed it a little too hard and not only made the partition move but I also got wet in the process! Here are few shots of Chad in the dunking tank. He wore his business attire to add some comedy for the residents.

Our little man is quite the entertainer. Ryan LOVES to sing and dance. While we were eating, he kept looking at the dance floor just itching to get out there and bust a move. He was so excited when Chris finally gave him permission to go dance. He was sooo cute and the residents loved watching him.

My little ones!

Enjoy this video of Ryan dancing up a storm! There was a little girl who wanted to dance with him but he was having no part of that...he is a "one man show!"

It looks like you all (especially Ryan) had a ton of fun! I miss it the community and the residents there too (although I agree with your comment that there are plenty of residents I do NOT miss)!! Ryan is a little dancing machine...I think I know a little boy just like that! The picture of you, Ryan and Kara is adorable...I love her little smile!
