Happy Father's Day.

 I am not sure how I got so lucky to have such an amazing father for my children.  The kids love for Adam is evident through the sheer joy on their faces whenever he is around.  Dad is clearly the favorite, and I am okay with that because he is my favorite too.  One of the things I love most about Adam is he so much like my dad.  Yep, I married my father.  Two men who are cherished by all who know them, who have enormous hearts and give generously, and who people strive to become more like them.

9 months.

This kid is awesome.  Nolan continues to be happy and go-with-the-flow, the perfect third child, just like his father!  This month was the first bit of fussiness coming from our boy when his first tooth finally came in.  Just like his big bro and sis, its his third tooth on the bottom that poked through, not one of the typical bottom two.  Nolan is starting to inch his way across the floor or roll from one end of the room to the other.  He is always a source of joy in our home. 

Memorial Day

One of our favorite ward activities is the annual Memorial day picnic, complete with good friends, a yummy BBQ, family bonding time, and pony rides.

T ball

 I love t-ball.  I have many fond memories of going to t-ball games as a kid.  My dad used to manage the t-ball organization so we spent many Saturdays on the ball field.  Charlie was a natural, just like his daddy.    

The player with his biggest fans (Nolan was cheering form the sidelines/stroller)
 The highlight game was the day Charlie got to play first base, be the catcher and have the last up (which in t-ball means: you hit a "home run."
Our new t-ball friend, Pierce Singh.

 The Singh girls were so sweet to June.  They played with her at practices and visited with her at the games, even when she was feeling "shy."
 Coach Lou, his son Louie, and Char rocked out karaoke style at the t-ball banquet.  We had a great first season and I am sure there will be many more.

Preschool Graduation.

Not sure how this happened... but my guy is growing up.
We all had a fun day at Charlie's graduation.  I cannot believe he is off to kindergarten in the fall (tears). 

 We carpooled everyday with this little sweetie pie, Molly Olmstead.  She and Charlie have such a sweet friendship.  

The proud graduate!

Swim Lessons

 The kids have been going to swim lessons for the past month and they have loved every second of it.  It has been a great way to kick start our summer. 

 Thank you Miss Heather and Miss Becky for being such great teachers.
