Happy Easter

Back on the blog. It's been a while. Anyone still checking here? Anyone...

Instead of an Easter bunny basket, Erik took the big boys to buy bow ties. Cooper wore one we already had. I mean, come on, look at them!

Summer Part 3

Okay, so, here it is. The rest of summer. Or, tidbits of Missouri with family. We relished our time outdoors, in the lake, spraying the hose, playing baseball, and seeing dear friends from Oxford days.

At the bluegrass festival.

Loving a visit from Uncle Pat and Aunt Kendra

Carter riding cousin Dani's horse, Buddy


Balling with Uncle Adam

Swatting bubbles with light sabers


Chatting with Baby Drew

So happy and so handsome

Dad and Uncle Doug on the tube. Wowza.

Carter watching Dad and Mace tube.

Finding the lost chairs on the bottom of the lake.

Lovely Aunt Jess and sweet Baby Dwew

And, cousins
The only shot of all four boys together from the whole trip. All wearing blue.

A wonderful summer, indeed.

Summer Part Deux

Daddy and Uncle Dude took the boys camping in June, the highlight of which was the BB gun.

While they were gone, Cooper and I did a lot of sleeping.

Summer Part 1

Cooper was baptized, wearing a gown on loan from his godparents. The gown was first worn sometime in the 19th century, and has since been worn by numerous relatives, on down the line, including Cooper's godmother and her five children. So special.

We saw the Diamondbacks! The game was sencondary to the treats we consumed. Mason, without his nap, enjoyed the game so much that he fell asleep during the fifth inning.

We had lots of JUMP PARTIES.

We've been busy...
At Kiddie Land two weeks ago (the last bearable weekend outdoors before the summer settled in)

At DC Ranch water park with bestbuddy Josh. The boys squealed when he arrived and they saw they had matching shirts.

And Cooper. Swimming for the first time. I think he looks like a turtle in this picture.

Mama the boy magnet.

This really captures him right now.

This too.

And this.
