Summer Camp

My big boy had his first day of camp today...and LOVED it! He was glowing when I picked him up and didn't stop talking about all that he did today. I missed him SO much!!! Even Owen gave him a big hug. It was sweet. He is so excited to go back tomorrow and he told me he wishes that he could go all year! I can't wait to hear all about it again tomorrow. :) But I'm going to miss him all week! The house was so empty without our David in it.

My Birthday Boy - Owen

We celebrated our Owen this past weekend with two parties, going to see Cars 2 and lots of family and friends! I can't believe my sweet boy is 3 years old!
On Sunday our family gathered together to have a party for Owen. Mommom made him a Cars 2 cake and he loved it! I loved watching him as we all sang, "Happy Birthday" to him. He was so blessed. :)
Our Owen is such a sweet boy (most of the time!). He is quiet and creative and at times a little timid and loves to be a part of anything that his big brother is doing. He makes up the best games and plays so creatively with his toys and brothers. I love watching him play and make up stories and games. He has a great imagination! He loves his little friends and gets so excited when he sees them. He loves it when we are able to give him one on one attention. I love it when I get to talk to me when it's just him and me. He is so cute and I love to hear his little stories and his take on things. I love his little voice. I love how he always says to me, "I love you Mommy". It warms my heart. I love how he greets people with enthusiasm and says, "Hi guys, hi guys!" SO CUTE! He is growing and learning each day. I love that he loves it when I read to him. Even at his age, he would just sit with me all day. He even sits and listens to David read to him. He loves hugs and kisses and cuddles and some of my favorite moments of each day are the times I get to cuddle with Owen. I love that he still loves his blankie. I love his excitement about new things and watching him experience life all around him.

It's hard to believe that it's been 3 years. I still remember what a sweet baby Owen was...he was so good! And now he is a big 3 year old.

We love you Owey! We are so grateful that you are our little boy. Happy birthday!

The cake!

A Summer Treat

It doesn't get any better than ice cream sandwiches on a hot Summer day!

Father's Day

Dave's Triathlon

On Father's Day, Dave competed in the St. Andrew's triathlon. We all had a great time cheering him on and watching him compete. He did amazing! It was a really fun thing to do for Father's Day. The boys were so proud of their Dad.

David's Last Tball Game

David's last t-ball game was a couple of weeks ago. We had a great season with a great team and a great coach. We made new friends from our neighborhood and David made a lot of new friends too. He was so cute playing his heart out, game after game. I am looking forward to many years of watching our boys play baseball. Go Razorbacks! Go #6!

Signing the balls. The trophy was a baseball glove with a baseball in it signed by all the players and coaches. How great is that?!?

Longwood Gardens with Mimi

In June, on a beautiful day, we went to Longwood Gardens with our Mimi! We had a great time! The boys loved showing Mimi all of their favorite spots and having a picnic together. We can't wait to go back again!

Busy bees!
