It's Summer Time!

So it's not the like the pool at the FL house, but it's pretty perfect for the kiddos! (and we can fit a couple rafts and adults in it too ;)
Grandma Honey and Papa helped us set up Kaleb's old pool this past weekend. It's so nice to have something else for the boys to do outside other than swing. Now just bring on the sunny days Ohio! - ya, that might be asking a lot?!?

The Garden Project

So we thought it would be cool to have a garden we could pick from this summer. I always.. always underestimate these projects! I wanted a bigger one and am so glad we decided on the smaller one, especially since we are total amateur gardeners. Two days of tilling, mixing dirt and planting and here is what we ended up with ;)

A friend said this was supposed to be theraputic.. It was after it was all done ;)

The other boys were sick and napping a lot that day, so Kellen was our only little helper

And Whallla... only thing left is a little mulching around it to help keep the weeds at bay

Had to add a couple cute shots of the week

My new favorite picture.. XOXO Adrian, we love you soooooo much!

Atlanta Trip

Last week I took the two oldest boys on a road trip by myself (yes, many ppl thought I was crazy) we visited a great longtime friend and her family. I have to say this trip was much easier than I anticipated.. thank goodness. The boys were very patient little travelers, 10.5 hours each way. Our visit was just FABULOUS! The kids all played so well together and we got to do so many fun things. I can't wait to go back!
And a bonus... I came home very refreshed and relaxed ;) I think John was happy about that one.

on the trip down.. they just loved Cracker Barrel, who doesn't?

We went to Tyler's baseball game, P and his bubbles

Rachel, Chase and Preston

Their new baby girl Halle, an absolute doll who has my heart. And such a good little baby too!

Preston was very fond of her!! He was very gentle and sweet.

At the Pirate/Sand/Blow up slide indoor playground - this was so awesome! Kids loved it.

Adrian and Chase - best buds ;) great pic, even tho A has his eyes closed.

Adrian climbing up the slide

packed a lunch

Having fun with a water fan when it was almost 90 degrees. Reminded me a lot of FL

Rachel has some better group shots of the kids, I'll post em when I get them.

After that trip I feel like I could probably road trip anywhere now with a couple kids in tow ;) I feel very accomplished ;)

Kiddie Footage

Kellen walking with his walker last week.

When we babysat Keno, the boys would wait at the door for him to go potty outside.. it's so funny listening to them calling for Keno, saying "cookie", "come on Keno", "a treat" and trying to whistle and get his attention.
