Happy Retirement Grandma...

My mom retired at the end of the school year.  She is excited to spend time focusing on her grand-babies, and possibly working part time!  She had taught for 41 years!  That's a LONG time.
Here she is with her grandsons.
Her party was very simple (per her request) but so fun!

These three are pretty good reasons to not want to work!
Congrats Mom! Ready for you to start the next journey!

Happy Birthday Daddy...

I'm just now getting around to posting pictures of Justin's actual birthday.  We had a wonderful time celebrating an amazing husband, and father!
Aubrey sure does LOVE her daddy.
These two boys LOVE to play together so Daddy's birthday was a good excuse.
Grandma with her two youngest grand-babies!
The swing set at Addison, and Carter's was a hit!
Claire with mommy, and daddy!
Mother, and son!
Carter, and Claire always have fun playing together.
All the kids with Grandma Donna, and Grandma Karen.
Love him SO much!
Since Justin was on a CRAZY diet we went out for ice cream instead of doing the traditional cake.
Once again Justin I hope you had a great day!

Wow! Summer is in full force, and I love it! It's so nice to be able to play in the backyard and not feel exhausted at the end of the day because the sun is still shinning.
The girls have enjoyed LOTS of time on the gator, and in the wagon while Colten practices baseball!

He came to the conclusion that he wants to be a switch hitter!  Future all star right here!

The kids have also loved not having to get up and around so early!  What a good thing!  
 Plus lots of time at the pool!
 Claire just takes it all in and goes with the flow!
 Her current favorite activity is bath time!
 That or eating!
 Have I mentioned we love the pool?

Grandma Time...

While in Oregon Claire spent quality time with Grandma Karen, and Grandma Donna. We are so grateful that we had an amazing team of Grandma's to take care of our sweet girl while away.  They sent LOTS of pictures to keep mommy happy!

Happy Birthday Amyah...

This past week Amyah turned three!  So hard to believe that sweet niece of mine is three already!  We had a wonderful time celebrating with her on both her birthday, and then this past weekend at her birthday party.  Happy Birthday sweet girl!
Her party was at Bonker's in Topeka.
I love all these crazy kids.
 Look at how big my baby looks!
