Fun-packed Summer

We've really been able to enjoy our summer this year. Oakley gets stronger as each day goes by. The last couple of months of chemo have been a little more gentle on Oakley so it's been easier for him to bounce back between treatments. He finds time to go to the basement and actually play with his toys!

Here's some of the things Oakley was able to participate in this summer:

He was able to help Dad & Grandpa with planting season this year. Oh how this boy loves his rides in the tractors. He wasn't really able to eat anything but he made sure to pack a lunch whenever he headed out. The first day out I didn't think he'd last more than an hour at most. He showed all of us and stayed for most of the day.

Enjoyed many rides in Grandpa & Uncle Andrew's Razors

Celebrated his 4th Birthday!

Oakley was miserable on his 3rd birthday. He was in a lot of pain and just didn't feel well. We had to beg him to open his presents and even then he didn't want anything to do with them after opening them. This year he was all smiles and he even took time to enjoy his toys!

He was invited to a birthday party where we learned that he really likes miniature golf. He insisted on doing everything by himself. We got an ear full if we tried helping him out in any way. It was fun seeing him enjoy hanging out like a normal kid. :)

Our TRUE Superman!

Attended the CNFR. Oakley LOVES watching the cowboys ride! :)

Actually made it camping. Oakley wasn't feeling the greatest but really enjoyed relaxing in the hammock with dad and Rowdy. He ended up with a fever by the time we got home. :(

Oakley was asked to be the ring bearer for his Uncle's wedding. He was so excited to carry the rings, he wasn't about to give the job up to his little brother! He wasn't feeling the best (had a fever by the end of the evening) so dad got to walk with him down the aisle.

Lastly, Oakley caught a fish THIS BIG!!! He was so proud of himself.
