Happy Summer!

Yes its been a while since I posted to this poor neglected family blog. Things are going well this summer. Project Build-New-House is still moving right along. As of this week we have all inspections complete for the framing and inside wiring/plumbing and insulation is to begin now.

Here are shots of what its shaping up to look like:

The kids are doing well and growing up too fast. Last month, for the last day of school, I thought I would do a comparison of them from their first day. While I can no longer shoot on our old deck you can still see how big they have gotten this year!

Another fun past time of the summer while visiting our new property is toad hunting. No worries, no toads were harmed while chasing them with our little fingers.

We've had three birthday's since I last posted too.

Miss E turned 6 in March.

Miss V turned 4 in May.

And Mr Z turned 9 earlier this month.


He is also playing in a summer baseball league and loving every minute of it.


And he's riding his bike all by himself with no training wheels. :)

We also just got back from our first camping trip the the beach.

I hope everyone has a great August and I will be sure to post more house updates once we have some siding on. It will be great to see something other than that drab blue!

Cooking with Daddy

This little one loves to be a big helper in the kitchen. Tonight she made biscuits on her Daddy's birthday.





They were yummy too. :)

Budding Artist

This is her favorite thing, art. Drawing, painting coloring, she loves it all. She is super excited to be starting her first after school art class this month.


Of course, I think she is super talented myself. :)

Some Camping Randomness

Had another great weekend in the woods. The girls were having fun scooping up rocks. Why do they love rocks so?

Donut face.


Stealing some food and giving me that face.


Then we got to launch some of the rockets that Zach built.


This one was almost lost but luckily the nice 90-year old woman let us borrow a rake to get it off of her roof. Next time, we will make sure we go to a larger park.

Two Wiggly Teeth

I love it when the kids start to loose their baby teeth. They just look so super cute. My daughter has two really wiggly ones right now and she is dying to write her special note to the Tooth Fairy but is still too scared to have us help her pull these two out. I think she should pull them both at the same time because the Tooth Fairy gives extra money for two teeth at once!

Another Birthday Post

Eight years. Everyone always says that the time goes fast and boy they are right.

My first born is such a sweet boy. He is so caring and warm and fun. I hope he keeps those qualities as he makes his way into teen-hood.

My original idea for his birthday shoot was him and his guitar. We had been so busy that we hadn't gotten around to getting the kid a hair cut so I left his cute little curls long for these.

He wants lessons on how to play. He loves all things music.

The obligatory 'rocker' pose.

The very next day we return home from the weekend of camping and he asks to finally get a hair cut. So I take him over to the barber and we wait 20 min before his name is called. Meanwhile he is focused on another customer getting his hair cut. He whispered to me, "Look mom, he has a mo-hawk". I could tell he was very excited and giggly at the thought. I asked him if he was interested in getting his hair cut in the same way. I think he was surprised that I was even considering it and then even more surprised when I let him go through with it.


I have to admit, I was a little gun shy at first but its super cute on him. :)

8th Birthday - Take 2

Can I just say that its super hard to get a good shot of a mo-hawk!

And here is the back

I want to wish him another wonderful year full of learning, friends, fun and family. Happy Happy Birthday to my not-so-little Man!

And just for prosperity, a cutie baby picture.

The Fourth

Camping for the Fourth is becoming a yearly tradition. This holiday falls near my son's birthday and this year he picked his favorite place to spend our weekend. He had a great time playing in the pool and going down the water slides. Also playing basketball.

Then a quick snap of these two together..giggling.

This dragonfly hung out with us for the afternoon. I guess he liked our company.

I was told that this dress would be worn on the 4th so I then made her pose for me. She made a special 4th of July, sea shell sand art to go with and made sure I captured it as well.

She had to show me her teddy bear sand art as well.

And then this new face. What's that about??
