Wednesday, May 27, 2015


Dad was nice and let Conner and Ben get the skates out tonight!  (Not an activity I enjoy since it involves more falling and crying than anything:)  The boys enjoyed practicing, and they are getting better at it, but they decided that skating is still pretty hard!

Count Down...

Ben and Conner are counting down... 5 more school days!

It still amazes me how our two boys sleep... so carefree!  Asleep in two minutes!  

Memorial Day...

It was nice to have the day off today!  We got some things done around the house and it was nice to have a little preview of what our summer days will consist of!  By late afternoon, Conner and Ben just wanted to relax on the couch!

Fishing Season...

On Saturday, Nick, Ben, and Conner met Papa for a little fishing!  Here are Nick and Ben while driving the boat!  (Conner was with Papa!)  No fish, but the boys still came home saying they had a great time.  Fishing season has begun...

Baseball practices have officially started!  Actually their first practice was Monday night, but it was so cold, I couldn't remove my hands from my coat pockets to take any pictures, so I got a couple tonight!

Happy Mother's Day!

I started Mother's Day off in the best way... sleeping in!  Then Nick made me breakfast and the boys helped me finish it!

The boys made me some very cute gifts and cards and Nick got me some great stuff too, including the promise of a new patio set, so we went shopping for a little while today to pick one out!

We also made a trip to get some flowers and Nick was nice enough to plant them for me!  And Ben and Conner were nice enough to put up caution cones around the dirt!

I had such a great day with my 3 guys!  Nick spoiled me and I greatly appreciated it!  Happy Mother's Day to all, especially Nana and Mama!  We love you!

Saturday Morning Imaginations!

I just love to see what Ben and Conner will come up with on Saturday mornings!  Conner made his own bow and arrow and Ben decided to make one for himself, as well!

Baseball Night!

Tonight the four of us got to go to a Kernels game!  It was really fun and the boys did a great job of sitting for a long period of time!  Ben did awesome the whole game so we were very proud of him. Conner entertained us with his constant whining and asking for everything he saw everyone else getting!  Great night of baseball!
