Surprise Fun

Yesterday Robyn asked if we'd like she and the boys to come over (today) while Lance did work in the Chicago area! DUHHHH!! YES!!!!!! They arrived just after 9am for a really fun day.
 We spent most of the day outside playing in the yard. We also had a picnic lunch in the yard. Robyn brought fancy root beer.
 Owen was hysterical, he tried on a costume about 3 sizes too small. (I cropped the picture to keep the blog modest)
Sammer loves Robyn! 
 Buddies for life!

I can't help myself. I'm addicted.

Seriously, could it get any cuter?

I'm sure the neighbors love this....

I really don't want them to grow up or summer to be over:(


My mom treated my sister and I to the Beth Moore conference in Moline, IA (we missed you, Kers). Scott had the crazy kids all day Friday and Saturday. I'm so thankful. We had the BEST time. We laughed our heads off and learned quite a bit too!
 We were soooo lucky, Robyn and her friends from Muscatine were also at the conference and they saved us seats waaaaaay up by the front!
Such a fun weekend. THANKFUL!

birthday day

It was raining when we got up this morning, but it didn't stop us from walking to Dunkin Donuts.

Happy Macker!

I just love his face in this picture.

His birthday party was at a place called Monkey Buziness. (Thank you, Groupon) My mom and dad drove all the way from Iowa to spend the day with us.

Macker was so happy to see them!

Junie loved being crazy with the big boys.


Nice costumes....

This is the only picture I have a Mac and Lulu playing. They were so busy and sweaty.

Time for cake!

I love all these kids!

The cousins all ate a quick lunch then it was time to have fun!

The crazy kids spent the afternoon having fun.

The big cousins having fun!

Sammer couldn't get enough of Nanny.
I can't think of a better way to celebrate Macker. I'm so thankful for this fun day!

My tiny little spicy sweetheart is 4 years old today. It's hard to imagine this was 4 years ago. I love Macker!

Sunday Funday

We have so many neat neighbor kids. I love this picture of some of them playing a large game of Uno on the sidewalk. Thankful.

Macker's neighbor friend Audrey came over to play.

Sammer got to play with her too.



Bubble guns too!

Sam loved Baby Johnny!

He couldn't stop hugging him!

When we got back from a swimming pool it seemed like a good time to play in the sprinkler.


I'm not lying, the kids requested this game. They all wanted to be in the "Seat of Truth".

My favorite part is when he started counting his toes?!?
Here's the one that was doing all the spraying. Our children are going to need therapy.
I love our family.
