happy morning; sweet brother

We had a slow morning, and the kids had so much fun just playing cars in their jammies.



Seriously, how precious is this boy?!

Lauren's crib

We're just about two months shy of her third birthday, and Lauren Kate is still happily sleeping in her crib.  She sure looks like a big girl in there!


As long as she has her blankies and her babies, all is well in Lauren's world.


"Smile, baby!"

a front yard picnic

This cute boy set up a picnic for his family - complete with placemats and napkins for each person.


He has the sweetest, most creative ideas!


Lauren Kate wanted to "cheers" with their strawberries after each bite.






This silly girl?  Her brother cracks her up!





That God would bestow upon us the privilege of being their parents?  He is unbelievably good.

cabin for Father's Day weekend

We had another stay at the cabin, and it was a total blast!  Daddy didn't have to work the next day, so we had a slow morning of lounging at the cabin followed by some exploration around the property.




Of course we had to head down the hill to the water!




Spunky Lauren Kate was all about smiling for pictures this day.




We were totally shocked that the pups were willing to get in the water!!



They hated posing for a picture. :)




This girl, on the other hand?  Loved it.



And check out these handsome dudes!!





The pups were so adventurous...




As the cherry on top, I captured a couple adorable pictures of Daddy with his babies.


It's a beautiful life.

Caleb's birthday party

Our sweet friend Caleb just turned 4, and we had a blast celebrating with him!


The party was about pools


and whistles





and hats


and friends!
