I'm going to do my best to post once a month. Keep checking back.


June 2017

We cut our Maine trip a little short because Brandon and I were going to a wedding in DC. We enjoyed a lovely weekend sans kids.  
 Tree climbing
 Strawberry picking. It sounded a little more romantic than it ended up being, but we did get enough berries for lots of jam, a pie, and enough for us all to eat as much as we wanted. 
 My wonderful shower guests. Such a fun surprise. 
One of the activities was making the baby's face using different features of each member of our family. Here is Jack's. In typical Jack fashion he used all his features. His name suggestion is Luke Pingpongball. 
We lived in the pool this month.  

 We've also had our fair share of fighting. They are getting along really well most of the time, but the fights can be intense. 
 Team work putting our kitchen back together after the big redo.

 My mom had a friend and her daughter over. Kamryn was spelling her name, so Noah spelled NOAHWALKERRODRIGUEZ and was so proud of himself. 
Cashing in our Christmas gift from the Walker family. We loved the Indians game.  
 And the dollar popcorn!
 Soooooo much wrestling!!!
 Hudson wanted to share all his stickers with his littlest brother.
 Helping me catch some flies.
My pool view.
 Diving board competition. 
This month has us like...


May 2017

Brandon accompanied the three older boys to school for Bike to School Day. Hudson was so excited to be able to ride along. Noah stayed home to practice for next year. 
My birthday card from Ryder. 
It was a good Mother's Day/ Birthday
Hudson finished preschool. 
Jack wrote a book about mud puppies. They had a little presentation where each student read their book to the class. 
Schools out for summer! 
Maine or bust!
Noah stayed in Indiana with Papa and GsaGsa. We missed him a lot, but he soaked up the individual attention. FaceTime helps too. 
The boys are such good travelers. Twenty straight hours in the car with no screens and minimal bathroom breaks. 
Jack spent a good amount of time wiggling his loose tooth. 
First tasting of lobster in one of our favorite places in Maine, The Lobster Shack.
The rest of the time we just spent hanging out with friends. 
All that wiggling paid off.
