This past weekend we had our annual camping trip to Lake Catherine with the Johnson's.
Camping = staying in a two bedroom cabin with air conditioning, kitchen, bathroom and all =)

Im not much of a tent camper. Dennis already has plans for him and Parker to pitch a tent and camp...without me =)
We had so much fun this weekend. The weather was not perfect. It rained on and off but thankfully it never got really hot! The kids had a blast.....

i Building forts!

We had a blast going into town to play putt putt. This was Parker's first time to play golf and he really got excited about it all!
We also did a lot of fishing. The kids would take turns bringing in the fish but, as you can tell, Parker would not touch them! He kept those arms crossed tight when the fish was around.

He was so proud that he could swim this far!! Such a big boy.
It was so nice to spend time with my sweet boys and good friends for a few days. 
Parker has been so good at school and has gotten to pick an item from the treasure chest every week since school started!! This week he chose these silly glasses....
We are so proud of Parker, his teacher is great and he is really loving school. It is amazing how much he has grown up since last year!!

silly boy

 Parker has been sick with an ear infection and pink eye the last few days but he is finally on the mend. Last night he finally felt good enough to play outside! And went back to school this morning...its hard when both parents work full time. Thankfully Dennis has a job where he can work at home if he needs to.
Parker's favorite thing to do outside is ride his bike or his "little jeep". 


He is very silly...
He picked out these red sunglasses to match his jeep.
Love my silly boy and so glad he is feeling better!

No better time

Well, it has been a very long time since I have posted on the good ole blog. It actually became very stressful and daunting to think about updating because so much has happened and we have done so many fun things since March.
I decided that there is no better time to pick back up the blog than on Parker's very first day of K4!!

He was beyond excited! He was very overwhelmed and just could not contain his excitement! He was hugging everyone! He loves routine and school is the perfect place for him, he is so happy!

Over the last few months everything has been great!
*I graduated with my Masters in Nursing and now I am a nurse pracitioner and have a big girl job! It is the perfect job for me and my family. Some days I get sad and overwhelmed when I think about being a full time working mommy but I am figuring it all out =) and I love love love my job!!
*Dennis and I went to Hawaii for a graduation fun!!
*Parker had a great check up with his cardiologist in April
*Dennis had foot surgery a few weeks ago. He is in a big boot but bouncing back quicte nicely!
*We have had lots of fun weekends with friends and family!

Now the blog can start fresh with Parker's first day of K4. I seriously cannot believe how big and grown up he is! I absolutely love his teacher this year, I get teary thinking about her and how God has blessed us this year! Parker will be starting soccer in a few weeks....that should be very entertaining!! We have been practicing not touching the ball with our hands! Lots of fun in the future with this wild and awesome little boy!
