Princess Grace

Our "princess", as she prefers to be called, is such a little diva. Nothing gets past this little ball of fire. Three weeks ago she started taking a gymnastics class at the Y. This is very cool for her as she has always seen Caleb go to all kinds of practices, and now it's her turn. She did a really good job. The best part was when she realized I was watching, and turned and waved really big. The smile on her face was worth the hectic morning to get her there on time.

Lucie's 1st Photo Shoot

Finally pictures of Lucie! Lucie's god-mother Joley and I took her to get pictures taken a couple of weeks ago. She is such a smiley baby so every shot was great. We ended up spending more than planned because we had so many to choose from. Joley even got suckered into buying more pictures when she picked up our order. SUCKER!!! The bear in the picture is a gift from Joley...only 5 months old and already spoiled.

Check out our GORGEOUS GIRL at 5 months old!!!!!!

Happy 4th of July

This post is a bit late, we have had some computer issues and I haven't been able to blog. The fourth was great this year. Bryan and Chad out did themselves again with the fireworks display. These two grown men are worse than the boys. Every year they attempt to get the latest and greatest, or should I say the "loudest" fireworks. This year was no exception. WOW is the only word that comes to mind. Thanks Bryan and Chad (or as my little brother calls them "Brad") for the show!

Jeff, Dani & kids decided to stay another day and spend the 4th in Wichita. This was great for the kids- as they don't get to play with each other very often. If we only lived in the same state...

Ronan turned two on June 28th, and had a family party on June 30th. Our plans for a moonwalk were flushed away by the rain. Which really sucked because all of the other kids' birthdays are in the Ronan's birthday is our only chance to have fun in the sun!! A little bit of rain didn't get us down. We ate, drank & enjoyed each others company.

Attendees included Grandmas Brenda & Lynda, Grandpa Ron & Grandma Sherry, Uncle (Godfather) Steve & his girlfriend Jill, Uncle Jeff & Aunt Dani, cousins Layla & Rocco, Aunt Carly, Godmother Nan, Godmother Anne w/ her kids Hannah & Danny, Pepa & Mema, Great Uncle Dave & Great Aunt Vicky, friends Rob & Joley, The Warners, and Missy & kids.

A huge thanks to everyone for making Ronan's party perfect!!
