Summer activities!

Hello summer weather and summer fun!
May has been a fantastic month!
 On Mayy 8th Steve and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary!
time has flown by and it has been wonderful sharing the last 5 years with Steve. He is an amazing man. I am still working on our 5 year anniversary post to recap the last 5 years, so stay tuned.....

Part of our anniversary celebration was taking our kids to the Omaha zoo and staying overnight in a hotel in an amazing suite. (the second part of our 5 year anniversary celebration will happen in September when Steve and I take a 5 day trip to San Diego!)

Sweet Sam and me!

  1. Awkward! Is my hand on this stone gorillas bottom?!?!?!
  2. How embarrassing!


Here is a better picture of that gorilla with Ethan!
Brave boy he is....trying to ride a gorilla!!

A quick shot with all the boys toward the end of our almost 6 hour zoo day!

Always nice to dwell at home too...
Especially when Dad gets to read books to the boys!!

Here is our first, definitely not last, fishing trip of the season!
Amazing job Ethan!

Sam, you're not trying to hide from me are you?
Catch ya every time buddy!

Hanging out with some family at a cousins graduation party!

That was such a fun road trip Sunday it wore Ethan out!

Ethan needed to play his guitar this day with THIS specific hat on! Silly boy!

Another story time with Dad!
So strange!
Love them all!!!!!

"A discerning person keeps wisdom in view..."

Samuel is 9 Months Old


Our Samuel turned 9 months old on the 6th of this month!
He is growing and is on the move. I don't remember chasing Ethan really even 1/2 as much as I chase Sam.
He is such a goof and loves to laugh and has a very relaxed personality.
He is also very tough and seems to endure lots of falling and tackling!
WE LOVE HIM!

9 month stats:
19 lbs 10 oz
28 3/8 inched long

1 Corinthians 12:18
"But I fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be."

My 3 boys!

Oh how I love these three!!

A little prep before the good old outdoors.

Ethan and I enjoyed a sweet rainy day date to story time at the library, then Starbucks for a coffee and kids hot chocolate while we sat in the store and read our new library book, then we headed to the mall play place for a wonderful time.

Ethan preparing early for a summer camping trip.
(I made him pose for this....if you couldn't tell)

"May the LORD cause you to flourish, both you and your children. May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.....it is we who extol the LORD, both now and forevermore. Praise the LORD."
Psalm 115:14-15 & 18
