June Update

Is it REALLY mid-June already?
Jeepers, time is going by quickly.
We're off to a fun and busy summer!
Love spending my days with these three even though I'm utterly exhausted by the end of the day.
EX-HAUS-TED, I tell ya.
Here are a few updated pictures of the kids and their UH-MAZING daddy.

A little backyard wrestling.

Popsicle-stained chin and swinging--it's what summer's all about!

 Love this boy so.
 Proud daddy with his boys who ADORE him. 
Couldn't be more thankful.
 They love each other one minute and can't stand each other the next!
It drives me crazy.
I just-so-happened to catch them during one of those "love each other" moments. 
Man, we got it good!

Baby Girl will be TWO next month.  
Wow! Where has the time gone?
We love her so.
She's fun.
Did I mention dramatic? :)
We're so thankful she's ours!

Happy Sunday to ya!

He is risen! Allelujiah!

 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;  and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
-John 11:25-26 

We had a fun-filled, low-key Easter Sunday at home this year.
We slept in.
Put on our Sunday best.
Ate a special Easter breakfast.
Found our hidden Easter baskets.
Went on a family walk.
Gave thanks to the Lord for the empty tomb!
Rode bikes.
Cooked out dinner at the park.
More bike riding.
Here are just a few pictures from our Easter morning.

One of our favorite things to do in Newport is have a big ol' lobster dinner at home.
Walk down to the wharf, pick out your dinner, steam, dip, and eat!
We made such great memories with our little lobsters from last summer.

And of course we made homemade lobster rolls with the leftovers!

I sound like a broken record here but I'm going to say it again...
