Hanging at the library.

The kids love going to the library.

Today it was hopping.
Maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was a cold and rainy day in June????
There is always so to do.



Puppet play.

The "Bathtub".  Every library has one, right?

Oh yeah.
And the books!
Can't forget about the books!!

It was such a long line to check out books.....
Thus the "face'.

Always a good time!

An Uncle and A Nephew

....who are only 3 months apart.


Jude is Archer's Uncle.

However, this Uncle and Nephew combo are also pretty good friends.

They play and fight together.
The share and grab toys from each other.
The hug and push each other down.
They laugh together.
They cry together.
They also like to make very loud noises together!!!

Picture taking???
They get antsy.

"Dude, tell your mom to stop taking pictures."

Yep, they are done with the picture taking thing!

So yeah, my family is a little unconventional.....

But, as a mom and a mimi, I couldn't be more blessed!
Love these two boys to the moon and back!

Finally.....we can go outside and play!

Up here in the north....
It takes a while, a l-o-n-g while before it's warm enough to hang out at our local playground.

A nice day.
Playground here we come!

What is it about a playground?

It's just fun.

Simple fun.

No bells and whistles.

Just kids having a good time and making memories!

Birthday Buddies

Jude's birthday is on April 17th.
Dave's birthday is on April 18th.

What fun!

Daddy and Jude celebrating birthdays together!
How special is that?

"Someone" was super duper excited!!

Blowing out the candles.....
Easy-peasy when you're three!

And we tried to make it real easy and for the "person" who wasn't three. (wink-wink)

Birthday Buddies!!
What a blessing!

Jude's is three!!!

Our little guy is three!!

THIS is our FIRST birthday celebration with him!

My heart swells with love for him.
We are so blessed to have Jude as our son.....forever!

All though we weren't able to celebrate his first and second birthdays with him......
We certainly are thrilled to be celebrating Jude's third birthday as a family!

This kid.
Such joy.

So much love!!!!

Oh, precious boy.....
How we love you!

Happy Third Birthday, Jude!
