A visit from the cousins

Last week these five boys spent the week under one roof. There was always at least one crying, yelling, needing food, a diaper change, a time out, or a kiss on their owie. However, there were lots and lots of giggles and constant entertainment!

This is how you get four boys to look at the camera at the same time! ;)

Bike rides, quad rides, pizza and popsicles... We spent a lot of time outside!

Running in the sprinklers, light saber wars, bubbles, playing ball... Did I mention we spent a lot of time outside?!
And because we spent a lot of time outside we had to make sure the boys spent enough time here!

Isaac enjoyed having four little brothers and Maddox really took a liking to him! No fair, a first born with a big brother!
Landon James turned one month and my trio loved holding him. Blake thought it was funny when he cried too!

Time for a Change

The last time I chopped my hair was right before Parker was born. For the past 3 1/2 years I've only gone in for trims so that I could grow it long! The most I cut off was about three inches a few months ago. Well, I finally got it long just in time for a change again... Go figure!
I'm enjoying the new look!

My Wanderer

Blake is unlike his brothers in the fact that he isn't afraid to explore. If he sees an adventure, he will take off without thinking. He loves wide open spaces yet, has no problem veering off the path to see what kind of trouble he can get into. Outside is his passion and dirt is his favorite... He'll plop right down and dig right in.

He is a mama's boy but, he is also my biggest flirt. Ladies love the deep laugh and the missing teeth I guess!

All this makes me want to lock him up now. I can't imagine how much I'm going to worry about him when he's grown and calling me from different places all over the world! And how many girls will be calling our house?... We're going to need a second line! Until then, I'll just hug him and kiss him and squeeze him and stare at him and laugh at him and smother him with more kisses and then hug and squeeze him again and continue to love on him even more until I fall deeper and deeper in love with him!

His free spirit and sense of adventure excites me! I just pray that his daddy and I can learn how to directed it, instead of squashing it!
