family reunion.

So much fun this weekend! I have some really fun relatives! 

Answering "Family Trivia" questions. 

My favorite was the question about who nailed their fingers together with a nail gun (or something like that). Lawson raised his hand all excited to answer... Jesus!! (love that little guy) 


With really cool prizes! 

Scavenger Hunt!!

I have so many fun memories from this campground! I went to church camp here for 10 years and was a counselor for 5 years. Such fun times!! 

Wiffle ball!

Some of us just watched and cheered! 

Heading up with Grandpa to check the campfire. 

We ended the evening with smores!
Day 2 was just as fun...

Somebody didn't like the grass on her bare feet.

Still rolling everywhere. 
Still getting stuck under things. 

And she's getting very quick.


Want an easy way to spend $275 in less than an hour?
Go to Wal-Mart.
Pay a speeding ticket.
It's super fun.

first day.

First day of summer. 
Kids were done on Friday, but teachers had to go yesterday. 
So today is our first official day. 
No alarm. No rushing to get around. No dressing "professionally". 
Love it. 

Not really loving how my house looks right now, though. 
Seriously a mess. 

Kitchen: (I was making baby food. Because that's on my list. Pick up the messy house isn't on my list. And I'm all about crossing things off my list.) 

Sophie was jumping in the air, surprising Gretchen and making her laugh. They were both loving it. 

And then she flung her arms a little too wide... (but look how pretty that bright green is on my blue floor!) 

And more good news... the big, smelly dog apparently likes peas, so she cleaned it up for me! (fyi... "make appt. for Marley at the groomers" has already been crossed off my list. At this time tomorrow, we will have a cleaner, less hairy, less smelly dog. Yay!) 

Breakfast nook:  (things brought home from school... me and the kids) 

Toy room: (more stuff from school, swim diapers, Wal-Mart stuff that needs put away, boots) 

Dining room: (blocks, swords, toys, recipe book, Corey's cattle paperwork)  

Living room:  (tap shoes, deflated basketball, hat, Hungry Hippos game, calendar, laptop, swim goggles, cute baby, baby toys) 

See? Messy, messy. 

But look at this colorful baby food. Seriously loving this green! (and I got to cross it off my list!) 

But I'm thinking I need to write "pick up house" on my list. 
Or better yet... write each individual room separately. Then I can cross lots of things off!

pre-school graduation.

This little man is kindergarten bound next year! 

I'm having a hard time believing he is old enough for kindergarten. 
But I think I'd be having a harder time if Gretchen hadn't come along. 

Miss Renee and Miss Mari... thank you for all the fun days you've planned for our little guy!

It's going to be so fun seeing this ornery little smile in the halls at school next year!
