Sept 13, 2011 Happy Birthday Anya!
Grandma Linda was here to celebrate birthday number 7! And of course made a beautiful cake for Anya that was FUN. A couple of days later on Anya's actual birthday we also made a big cookie cake into a number 7. This birthday was all about tennis, Anya's new favorite thing. :-)
October 15, 2011 The Wagoner Haunted House
We just love the YMCA and what they do for our family; so I decided for the 3rd year to volunteer for the “We Build People” Campaign. Lars has been very involved each year as well and he decided that we should raise money via a Haunted House. A Haunted House it is!
We prepared the entire basement over a 2 month period. Working on it here and there and making it as spooktacluar as we possibly could. The day finally arrived and we had about 15 volunteers, Grandma Bev, neighbor Andrew, Zombie Lars, Witch Anya, Igor/Alan and Zombie Heidi ready in costume to help us. We had about 70 people go through the haunted house and raised $440 that night! It was loads of fun and loads of work! :-) Several people just had to go through a 2nd and third time. One family with kids were on the ground in front of each tombstone in the front yard for a picture. It was great.
October 26, 2011 Anya finally lost her 1st tooth!

June 20, 2012 Announcing our new blog - "Wagoner's Abroad" ! wagonersabroad.com
This is of course a work in progress, but we now have a blog... it will feed our Facebook Page, so you can find info either way. We do plan to keep this site as well and will update occasionally.
Summer is here and that means "Summer Camp" at the Y!
The kids will have an abbreviated summer camp session this year,
but they are making the most of it. They love soccer, swimming, arts,
shaving cream twister and all the games on the "porch" (giant jenga, giant
mancala, hop scotch, corn hole etc...). They even have the parents
experience it all during Family night. Of course the counselors are there
favorite part of summer camp!
