Picnic Time :) --- Update on Jordan

Are you planning a picnic this weekend? 
This is the season for picnic fun.
So grab your basket,
Find your favorite picnic spot, and bring on the treats :)
Betty Crocker had this sweet idea for your celebration,
 Don't they look yummy?

For Fun Printables see:

Sweet Straws are found at:

and no picnic would be complete without ideas from:
Fourth of July Bike Clip Art

Fourth of July Clip-Art Toothpick Flags

And now, a wonderful update from Jordan: 
(via his Facebook page)
hello all, thanks for all the support. as you see i am going strong and healing fast, Its really hard to keep up with everybody individually but once again i want to express my gratitude to everyone and i could not do it without you and of course my wonderful wife and my little helper jay.

We are having a picnic with friends from church on Sunday. Warren is taking Mikey and his friends dirtbiking on Monday, so that will make it quiet around here.

Jordan looks and sounds great! Thanks for being so faithful with the updates.

Happy Fourth.

We are heading across the state to get a pony for Rachel! We leave on Sunday afternoon and will come back on Monday sometime! We likely will eat out all day and have treats in the van...if we get back early enough, we may be able to do fireworks at home!

Jordan seems to be doing well! What a miracle!

We are staying home on the 4th, which is fine with me. Love all the images you posted. The push up cupcakes are so cute, and they do look yummy!

So thankful that Jordan is progressing well. The video of him walking a couple posts back brought tears to my eyes. He is in my prayers.

I hope you have a wonderful July 4th with your family! :)

Push up cupcakes, now what a grand idea.
I love the bicycle all decorated up. So reminds me of my days of bike riding my blue Schwinn.
So good to hear from Jordan and see him playing ball with Jay.

What a heartwarming update on Jordan in his own words. The picture says it all...
Great ideas for celebrating the 4th. Is that your picnic basket? Loved it!!! Makes me wish I was decorating and celebrating as we usually do instead of painting and traveling. But here's wishing you and your family a fun 4th of July celebration.
