Ice Cold Water

Owen came to spend a couple days with us and we are loving it.
I wish you could all feel how cold that water is. FREEEEZZZING!
Once they got used to it O made a sprinkler and the kids ran through it. It was windy and about 70 degrees. I think they're turning into midwest kids.
Macker couldnt' help himself, he needed to be in the water. Is he really going to be 1 tomorrow?

Neighbor Night

Our favorite (I didn't just write that because she reads my blog) neighbors came over for a night of fun.
The kids had a chance sing the NBC songs for us. ( Amelia and Tyson)
Macker and Carson. Could they look like brothers?
Macker wanted to get in on the action.

Date Night

Scott's buddy Jeremy was in town for a speaking engagement with Compassion. He invited us to join him at Ignite Chicago.
We didn't realize that we were actually going to be VIP with back stage passes. View from the VIP lounge.

Having dinner.

Then it was time to head backstage. SWEET!

I'm not exactly sure how it happened but we ended up ON THE STAGE. Crazy!The first band we saw was Reliant K. We didn't know their music at all but the people in the audience were singing every word.
Can you see how close we are to the singers?

Scott was loving life.

Time for our buddy Jeremy to speak.

It started getting dark and then it was time for the feature artist. Jeremy introduced us to this nice guy named MAC who just happened to be the lead singer of THIRD DAY! He was so nice.
There's the whole band about one second before taking the stage.

Walking on to the stage.

Us joining them on the stage.

Scott was pretty excited.
Can you see the singer behind me?
Check out the crowd.
I think my Scooter could join the band?!

Dedication Day

Our little MackyMac was dedicated today.
Maybe if we hadn't waited until he's just about a year old he wouldn't have been such a train wreck. He was noisy and wiggle the entire time. I think the high today was about 70 degrees but I was sweating from wrestling him. And seriously, when on earth has Scotty ever sucked on his fingers?! Gross. He did it the entire time we were on stage. Other than that I'm really thankful.

Neighborhood Bible Club- Water Day!!

We've been having the best week.
The water balloon toss.
Water war!

Amelia's gotten to meet some really nice girls that will be in 1st grade at her new school. (I'm so thankful.)

The homemade slip'n'slide was a huge hit!
Just one more day and it's over, I'm a little sad.
