Summer fun with the grandparents!

We spent last weekend and most of last week with Jonathan's parents.  We got to hang out with my sister and her kids Saturday night to celebrate Bayler and Maclaire's birthdays.  We went to Airwalk and the kids had a blast!

Cole and Claire. 

Having fun!

These two cousins sure do look a lot alike!

The awesome thing about living in the country...playing outside in your PJ's and eating cherries first thing in the morning!

Even Crosby got in on the cherry eating action!

Sweet brothers at Grandma Grammer's 89th Birthday lunch!

The best looking 89 year old I know!  :-)

Well at least I was smiling for the picture!

Sunday afternoon we went to the ski lake with Cole's second cousin Lana.

Crosby discovered a love of bacon. He came by this naturally from his dad.

On Monday Mawmaw and I took the boys to the zoo.  We rented a double stroller and we were off.   Crosby LOVES animals so he had a blast!

Petting the goat.  He calls all animals dogs. :-)

Cole getting ready to do the new zip line that they just put in at the zoo.  He had a blast!

Playing in the foam/bubbles.

This little boy loves his maw maw!

Camel ride!

Ha, ha about Cole's face. :-)


On Tuesday we went to the McWane Center.

Cole and Pawpaw did the flight simulator.  It was Pawpaw's idea and he even paid to do it, however when he got finished he said he wouldn't do it again. Cole on the other hand loved it!

Lana even came over for a sleepover which Cole loved. He is big into sleepovers right now.  She spent some time reading with him.

I am so blessed to have the BEST in-laws.  They show us so much love and hospitality every time we visit!  Look forward to going back again soon!

More summer fun!

Here is more of what we have been up to so far this summer...

I enrolled Cole in the base's summer reading program.  We have already made a few trips to the library and will have several more to make.  We are 10 books down!  

Picking out books.

Our church is going "on location" on Wednesday nights for the month of June. The first Wednesday night was at the base.  They grilled out burgers and hot dogs.  I think it is such a great idea and just a good time of fellowship. 

Yum, yum!

We have been to the base pool for a few times already.  Our neighbors have a pool that we use almost daily, but the base pool has fun slides and a baby area for Crosby so we like it too.  Cole is a good little swimmer.  He had to take a swim test to swim in the deep end (and go on the slides).  He jumped right in and swam to the rope and back and then treaded water and he was good to!  I was proud of him!

Crosby enjoying the baby pool.

I took Cole and Chloe bowling one day while Crosby was at baby school.

Cole had a pretty good score!

We've been enjoying summer fruits!

And Cole has even taken a nap! That boys plays hard and then crashes!

Swimming at Chloe's!

He loves to dip his food!

A WET day of soccer camp!

Cole had British Soccer camp all last week.  It is a very good, intense program.  Unfortunately it rained a couple of days last week, but that didn't slow them down!

The boys with Coach Omar.   He had a great British accent that the kids tried to imitate.

Last Friday after soccer camp we went to eat Mexican and then to the movies to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 (it was so good too!).  Crosby went home with Mawmaw and Pawpaw a few days so I enjoyed the one on one with Cole.

Summer is passing and we are counting down the weeks until daddy is home!

Summer Fun!

These are in no particular order...just some fun things we have been doing the last couple of weeks!

We visited Mawmaw and Pawpaw for a few days and had a fire and roasted marshmallows!

Both the boys passed out after a visit to see Aunt Misty! 

Playing legos with Uncle Josh!


Swimming next door at Chloe's house.

Love these crazy boys!

Cole went cosmic bowling with Asher and then spent the night with him.

Playing in the sandbox at Mawmaw and Pawpaws.

More Chuck-E-Cheese pics.

We won 150 tickets on one game!

Being silly on the way to church.

Lunch at the mexican restaurant after church.

These boys both sure love their Mawmaw!

I got to spend Memorial Day with my sister and Dad.

Crosby loved playing with his cousin Jayden.

yummy watermelon!

Loving on Aunt Steph.

More sandbox fun!

Summer break has been off to a good start and we are looking forward to making more memories in the weeks to come!
