Summer Fun

Summer is here! We have been busy kicking off summer with trips, visits from family, and festivals. Noah and I have taken a road trip to Emory and Abilene while Pete stayed in Little Rock holding down the fort and working hard on learning his new plane. Then Grammy Shell came to visit followed by a visit from my sisters and niece and nephew.
Noah has had a few 'firsts' as well.
He took his first head dive out of the bath tub (he will be better supervised from now on)
Watch out mama...Noah is getting his two top teeth! (and has consequently bit his tongue)
He is now taking what I call a 'connecting step'. He takes one small step hands free between objects.
He has attended his first festival (riverfest) and sat on a lawn listening to his first concert (cross canadian ragweed).
He went to his first swim party and hung out in his floaty for the first time....and loved it!!
Rode the 4-wheeler for the first time. Did he like it? Lets just say he cried when his mean momma made him get off.

Abilene friend Emory. She is two days older.

Abilene friend T.J.

Also visited our friends, the Polcars, but didn't remember to get any pics. Don't worry, they are coming to visit us in LR so I will get a few then!

At the park with Grammy Shell:

Hungry and tired at Riverfest:

Checking out the water fountain with dad:

Carnival with mom, dad, Aunt Sara, Chase, Ava, Aunt Leah

Aunt Leah getting some practice before Grace gets here. She is a beautiful pregnant lady!

Cousin bath time!

Driving his John Deere in his cowboy PJs (the feet are to look like boots)

and now the other direction....

Why ride when you can drive?

He is going to be a hoopster like his dad (and mom):

He pushes his car around while making a motor sound with his mouth. really!


  1. What a big boy! Love all the new pics! Not long till the big birthday party!

  2. Noah is too stinkin' cute!!! So glad to hear that your summer is getting off to such a great start!! :)

  3. I am in shock. I can't get over Ava. She is SOOOOO Big compared to Christmas. In that tub she looks like a giant!!!

    Noah is adorable as usual. He makes you want to grab him up and cuddle him.

    You need to help me with my page...yours is so cute!

  4. He's just doing all sorts of fun stuff now. It was so great to see you guys. I wish you were still here...the kids would have so much fun! We'll have to settle for frequent visits.
