Playing Catch Up....

Looks like it is time for a little blog catch up... we have been pretty busy this past week packing up the house we have lived in for the past 6 years. We have never moved with kids before & it is quite the task! Its a little bittersweet to be moving out of the house all 3 kids came home to from the hospital but at least we will be coming back in 10 months or so to a new & improved house we will spend many, many years in. In between packing boxes, this is what we have been up to...

Cruisin' on the power wheels...

A little gardening....

Helping Ebby feed Banks her bottle.

Kissin' on cousin Banks

A visit to Daddy's work, "the castle" is what the girls call it.
Don't blame them.

Checking out the trading floor.

Working the phones.

Helping Daddy at work.

Playing silly dress up!

Tyler in the dance recital, she was so proud!

Having so much fun!!

Playdate with Jane!

Sweet big sis to be, Jane was in town from Texas and she had some friends over for some backyard fun. Our kids were thrilled to walk into the Queen City's own version of disney land... a "car wash" to cool off in, a princess tent, swings, baby pools and ride on toys galore.

Court in the car wash... Handmade by Coco & Mo!

The princess tent.

Harper swinging away!

Court on the "twuuuck"
Yep, he is saying a word or two here and there and nothing gets this little boy's heart racing faster than a truck. A firetruck you can ride on, super cool!

Jane & her Mama!!

Tyler having a snack

Vroom, vroom!

Thanks for the fun playdate Beavs, hurry back!

Simply Irresistable

Guess Court finds himself simply irresistable since every time he catches a glance of himself in the mirror he immediately stops and gives himself lots of kisses.... no matter where we are, he just cannot stop himself!

Hi cute self, here is a kiss!

I love you.

It has got to be hard being so cute!
Mommy thinks you are simply irresistable too!

Sweet Cousins

The Bucks stopped by right at bedtime....
nothing like a little cousin snuggle time right before bed.
Girls were smitten....

Tyler, Banks & Harper

Pretty excited to have Baby Banks their beds!

Girls are asking when Banks can sleepover.... hmmm, we will see!

Not sure if we are that brave yet.

Summer of Summer Camps!

This has been the summer of summer camps for the girls. When our toes have not been planted in the sand at the beach, Tyler & Harper have been in camp. They have done everything from gymnastics to art, bible camps galore to spanish camp. These two have not stopped!

Camp Gabe

Showing off their art project from VCC

But with all of this fun has come minor injuries...
Harper shut down the gym at camp one day due to a uncontrollable bloody nose.

Tyler came home with her first fat lip from a gym injury.

And not to be left out Court is working on eating as many markers as possible this summer to see if Mommy will freak out and call Poison control.
Oh & he got his first scraped knee... no idea how we made it this long.

So, when Mommy offered up to the girls to raise your hand if you want to skip camp today and stay home with Mommy they happily obliged and we spent the day together.

Then they were put to work packing boxes for the move!

We still have 3 more camps to go... I think next summer we will try to not be so over scheduled so we can enjoy the lazy summer days! But for this summer I am enjoying seeing all of the new art projects they come home with, the new songs they are singing, the new words they are learning in Spanish and the new dance moves they are picking up along the way.
