Happy Birthday, Dan & Kari

Yes, Dan and Kari share the same birthday! I say it all the time, but it’s nice to live so close and celebrate together! This year was extra special because Mom and Dad happened to be in town.

Beautiful sunflower field!

We all went to the park one evening after dinner. This beautiful sunflower field was across the street. It was gorgeous!

Ethan had his hands behind his back and told me he had something special for me. I thought it would be a sunflower, but instead it was a pretty purple flower. He was so proud of it and excited to give it to me. Isaac took this picture of us.

T-Ball and Baseball

This is the first year our boys have played baseball. They like it okay, but don’t love it. I think they will enjoy it more as they get a better understanding of the game. But, they sure look cute!

Isaac’s good little buddy, Josiah.
Lincoln and Josie find ways to keep busy during the games. So glad they have each other!
They are too cute for words!
Ethan is up to bat with a smile on his face.
Oooops, try again!
There you go! I love his face in this picture!

Love when ice-cream comes to us!

Dan, Kari, and the boys came over Friday evening to hang out. After we finished eating dinner my sweet tooth was ready for something. We debated about going to UDF for ice-cream or making brownies. Although, I really wanted a peanut butter milkshake we decided on brownies since the guys wanted to stay in. (Surprise, surprise 🙂 ) Just as the brownies came out of the oven we heard the ice-cream truck. The good one, soft serve ice-cream, milkshakes, sundaes, etc.. So…We got ice-cream and I got my chocolate peanut butter shake! The brownies went into the freezer for another day.

Owen thought is was funny at first, but his happiness quickly turned to tears when he realized Lincoln was stealing his ice-cream!
Owen and Isaac. Love all the messy faces!
Little Alex. I’m still not sure how he got so messy with such a small amount of ice-cream.

Playing Together

Isaac and Lincoln play together often. Isaac is such a great big brother, so sweet to Lincoln. Never do I worry that Isaac will be too rough. It gives me a nice break when they play together. Peace of mind, knowing that Lincoln is having a blast with his brother, “I-gok.”

They have very similiar personalities. It was be fun watching them bond more and more.

From Mouse to Hamster

One morning as I was opening my blinds I saw this little critter staring at me through the window. I got a shoe box and with the help of Ethan and Isaac caught this fat mouse. Ethan wanted to keep it. But, I told him we had to let Mr. Mouse go out in the woods where he would take care of himself. Ethan was sad which made me think that maybe a new pet would be good for the boys.

That evening we headed to the pet store to find our new furry friend. A cute little hamster.
Here is Ethan proudly holding “MacGyver.” (What else?) He was living up to his name on the way home from the pet store by chewing a hole in the cardboard box and almost escaping!
If anyone is thinking about getting a hamster let me remind you of how loud they are! At night, Macgyver runs on this wheel for hours. It’s so loud we have to take him out of  the boys room. Warren kept turning up the volume on the TV because of this thing! But, he’s cute, huh?
Mickey, meet MacGyver. Poor Mickey, I wonder what he was thinking? He stared at the cage for a good 15 minutes while periodically licking his lips. He started batting at the cage so we made him get down.

A “short but sweet” trip to North Carolina

It was so good to visit and stay with Dad and Debbie! They have such a cute, cozy, warm, and inviting home.

McDonald’s Pit Stop # 1

Yes, we went to McDonald’s twice during our 11 hour drive! The play places are a great way to break up the trip and help the kids release some bottled up energy.

It seems like yesterday that I couldn’t wait for Ethan to be big enough to play in these kiddie areas. And now he is getting too big for them! 🙁

Isaac still has a while! He just went to his 5-year check up. He’s only in the 25th percentile in height.

And when Isaac is too big, there is still little Lincoln! 🙂

Let’s get back on the road! (But, not before I say, “CHEESE!”)

We wish Lincoln would have done more of this during our trip! He only slept about 20 minutes during the 11 hours it took to get there. And only about 30 minutes coming back home. I can’t complain though, he was excellent during the drive. Only whined “Mom!” a few times and never cried once. He’s a trooper. Such a good lil’ boy!

Grandpa Lovejoy’s house

Dad and Debbie sitting on their porch.

Grandpa made chocolate chip waffles for breakfast! Yum!

When I went to check on Isaac in the morning this is what I found… What a ham!

Dad and Debbie’s tread mill provided lots of entertainment for the boys!

It’s so nice to see the boys with Grandpa and Debbie in this picture. We don’t see enough of them! Lincoln warmed right up to Debbie. They were so sweet with the boys!
