Sometimes the best laid plans, well...
Well, we thought so.
My sister KK was sweet enough to watch the babies for us so we could enjoy an evening out with just the older boys.
Instead of driving, we decided it would be fun to ride the train into uptown.
we all still laughed, and enjoyed a great night out with precious friends.
All in all it wasn't so bad!

Father's Day Weekend
Well...in honor of Father's Day, Shane took Corban and Riley on their first ever real camping trip.
---blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs.
They LOVE to swim!!!
And with that...Father's Day weekend came to an end! It was simple, but oh so sweet!
My kids are truly blessed to have such a fun, loving, godly man to call their Daddy!
Happy Father's Day, Shane!!!

and that's how we roll...
and the babies are entertained by watching the boys on their bikes.
Also... a few goldfish help keep them occupied!
And just so you know...Riley is very proud to announce that he is the new owner of a
"Big Boy Spider man Bike"!!!!!
It actually is Corban's old bike, but Shane replaced the handle grips and got Ri a new bell for the handle bars.
Let me just tell you...Riley thinks he is one cool dude with his "new" set of wheels!;)

Summer Fun---Take One!
Oh. My. Goodness...it's crazy.
The babies LOVE the water, but both tend to go in two different directions at all times. Makes me very nervous. I can't take my eyes off of them for even a second. The older boys are really great swimmers and have proven to be a big help to me with the little ones. We are having a BLAST though, but this mama is worn out after a few hours poolside. I see those sweet moms sitting on the side of the pool chatting, or reading a book while their kiddo's play, and I think--"one day...one day that will be me"---HA!
So, while we grilled our dinner the other night, the kids had some fun playing in the pool.
...And in case you were wondering... that IS a lovely scrap on the top of Hudson's head---courtesy of his big sister!
They thought that was GREAT!!!!
So, Sunday afternoon we got to work.
Hope your summer is off to a GREAT start too!!!

Summer is (officially) HERE!!!!
Sophie likes to close her eyes when I take her pic!
Corban received the Perfectly Polite Award!
Of course you know the manners teacher in me was just bursting with pride ;)!!!
Corban and Mrs. Adams :)
He has grown in so many area's, but especially as a confident reader! His reading has improved so much and he LOVES reading books. Every night you will find Corban curled up in his bed, with Riley right beside him, reading books together!
One of Corban's favorite books to read this year has become his Bible.
Oh how I love that about him!!!
These two have been in the same class two years in a row now!
We are hoping and praying they will be together next year too!!
Corban also learned the importance and value of being a good friend this year. Through different circumstances, Corban had the opportunity to share God's love and pray for several of his friends! I am very proud of him!

Some good old family fun!
So Sunday marked our first official family trip to C@rowinds!
Now, I PROMISE I won't continue to post pictures EVERY week of my kiddos riding amusement park rides, but since it was our "first" official family trip, and since this blog is my family scrap book, I HAD to share a few of the pics from the trip!
Sweet Hudson and mommy riding the carousel!
Daddy and Miss Sophie riding too!
Little Miss Priss had her first-ever-ride on a roll a coaster!!!
Oh.my.goodness...she LOVED it!!!!
Look at that precious face!
When the ride was over, she didn't want to get off,
so since it wasn't very crowded, we got to ride again---and again!!
Hudson, Daddy, and Riley enjoyed a ride on a hot air balloon!
And Sophie and mommy enjoyed it too!
Check out the cool kid in the drivers seat!
Is this picture a sneak peak into our future?!?!?
Little Sophie Lu driving a red convertible, and
sitting proudly in the passenger seat beside her is the ONLY man in her life...her Daddy--HA!!
What a GREAT evening!
We all had an ABSOLUTE blast and can't wait to go again!!
