Mr. Independent

Court has officially entered the "I am going to do it myself phase!" Mommy feeding me, no thank you. I am a big boy and can do it all by myself. I remember this stage with the girls.... it is certainly messy, but oh so rewarding because...






Gymnastics Camp

The girls finished up week 3 of summer camp and this past week was definitely one of their favorites.... YMCA Gymnastics with "Miss Bows"! The week ended with a show to let all of the proud parents come see all of their tumbling skills. Somersaults, High Jumps into the foam pit, Dangling from the monkey bars & walking the balance beam.





And the highlight to the end of the show... getting their medals. Girls are pretty proud of the ribbons and we are pretty proud of them!

Fathers Day Weekend

We had a wonderful Fathers Day Weekend... lots of family time which made all of the kids very happy. We spent a lot of time in the water at the lake. Its official... all of our kids are waterbugs! The girls are becoming great swimmers and even little Court kicks his legs and prefers to spend the daylight hours splashing away.

Court, the official waterbug

Kicking his feet!

Such a sweet, happy boy!

Honey & the kids

Uncle Brandon & hmmm.... either Tyler or Harper.

Catching fish with Pop!

Then what would Fathers Day be without a cake?
The girls take their decorating very seriously!

Happy Fathers Day to our #1 Daddy!

Finishing up the day washing the cars....

We are so lucky to have such an amazing, hands on Dad that loves each one of our kids with his whole heart and 3 doting grand dads that adore our kids! We could not ask for more.
Happy Fathers Day!

Summer Days!

So much for lazy summer days... I think we are busier than ever. Summer camps, playdates, sprinklers & cool treats. We have had a great week! The girls had camp all week which was fun for them and Court had some quality Mommy time. Here are some photos from the week....

Its a twin thing.... always sharing!

Pretty cool to have a best friend around 24/7!

Grumpa comes to visit.
The boys... Court & Grumpa.

Grumpa & the ladies...
Harper, Tyler & Banks

All smiles.

Court's favorite summer dish... Corn on the Cob!

And I have started to notice our kids are strange.... silly & strange....
Found at 11pm like this in her bed.

Found at 1pm in Mom's bed as Frosty the Snowman.

And Court.
Found at 9am in his hand me down girly shades... his favorite.
I think we have a movie star in the making....

Lights, Camera...
