Happy Friday!

This morning, Tyler woke us around 5 am with a bout of ... stomach issues. I woke him late morning and now he appears to be back to normal.

Aubrey and I went on a mid morning walk. Not too far away, she fell and scraped her knee and hand. We came back to clean her up and she cried to take a nap. So, she is up from an early nap.

It's been a strange start to a Friday. I hope that the afternoon is uneventful for them this afternoon while Grandpa and Grandma babysit and we go to a movie.

Super Aubrey to the rescue!

There was lots of jumping on the trampoline.

Showalter Visit

Hollins, Rachel, Jillian and Reid visited last week. Every time we have a chance to have a visit with family, I wish we lived closer. We relaxed, took in a couple of movies, went out to eat at Red Lobster, enjoyed a date night while Grandpa and Grandma watched the kids, went to the YMCA water park, Botanica, and the Hesston splash park.

Aubrey and Jillian, our 2 1/2 year-olds, loved playing together. They enjoyed a nightly tea party in their bath...complete with lots of shrieks and giggles.

They had their share of two year-old arguments ("mine" "no - mine!"), but really did love playing together.

Reid is such a good baby. He was starting to sit and is scooting around.

Hollins reading to the girls.

Enjoying some time at the Hesston splash park on the last day of their visit.

Aubrey thought the water was too cold, so she sat out most of the time.


Hmmm, I'd really rather go play on the swings or slide, Mom!

Trying it out...

Ending with Popsicles ... still trying to beat this Kansas heat.

We had a great time!
