The Play Set is Coming Along!







Loving Life at the Lake!














Golfing




I went to Melvin's on Friday after work to meet some girlfriends and was a little surprised to hear Jamie was taking Griffin to the driving range. He did great!

Rainbow Over the Lake




Jamie spotted a gorgeous rainbow in our backyard tonight! We saw the beginning and the end....but didn't find any gold. Dang.






Thanks, Anita and Marin!


Anita--Check out Griffin's fun outfit! :) Thank you!!

Marin--Griffin likes his new Cootie's game! Thank you!! (We are guessing it was from you!)

The Beginnings of Hours and Hours of Fun!

Kevin designed a play set for Griffin, it's going to be awesome! There is going to be a screened in place for fun backyard camping and he even worked around our trees so it will feel like a tree house!! More photos to come!

Just Like the Good Old Days!

PJs and Mud




Life's too short not to play in the mud puddles with PJs on.



Boat Ride with Grandma and Grandpa Jones



We went on a fun boat ride with Grandma and Grandpa Jones....they stopped by after Grandpa got his new ears! We visited Nonna and Poppa's new cabin and saw all of the work they have done so far.....they are amazing!

Perfect Day




We had a ton of fun with Jenny, Chloe and Cooper today! We biked to the Spicer park and took the long way--it was gorgeous, although I am convinced it was uphill both ways! After the park we ate at Melvin's, then let the kids play in the water. It was freezing cold, but they were so happy! On the way home we stopped for ice cream. Another perfect Wednesday!

My Mother's Day Gift

Yes, I did get beautiful cards, nice flowers, a great necklace and my favorite--peanut M&Ms for Mother's Day. But here were two of my favorite gifts:
1) This weekend Griffin told me: "We need to recycle this." "I am going to put this in the compost." and "Momma, please turn off your light, we don't want to waste energy." Yep, he's a Momma's boy, I am so proud!!
2) Jamie, Griffin and I celebrated Mother's Day on Saturday. We went shopping, went out to eat and went swimming at the Y. On the way to get ice cream Griffin said, "It was a great day!" Ahhh, enough to melt my heart.
Two great Mother's Day gifts.

May Day


We made May Day baskets for the neighbors and for Nonna and Poppa. I explained to Griffin that he needed to ring the doorbell and run and hide....he told me he didn't want to run away from the neighbors or Nonna and Poppa! Apparently he likes them too much! I was surprised when he actually followed by instructions and rang the doorbell and tried to sneak to the side of the house before Nonna saw him. And, yes, in case you were wondering, he did make a May Day basket for us!
