Spring Break Camping Trip

For Spring Break we took off to the lake to go camping with friends! We had such a fun trip - we were definitely not ready to come back home!!

We love taking out the camper and I love all the great memories that we are making every time we take it out - I know the kids will remember these times forever and I know for sure that I will as well! One day they'll be taking their kids and telling them about when they used to go camping as kids!

We played basketball, tennis, putt putt, shuffleboard, horse shoes, corn hole...we swam, took out the paddle boats, played on the beach and in the lake. The kids rode their bikes a hundred miles I know! Enjoyed sitting out by the campfire with friends and making s'mores! My parents came out to join us part of the time and our friend's brother and his family did, too!

The boys found an "alligator" to wrestle - turned out to be a big log in the lake!! So, then it was a contest to see who could stand on it the longest - I think they all won!

Aaron's 7 Year Old Rocking Chair Pictures

So every birthday the kids know that they'll have their picture taken in Grannie's Rocking Chair - the one she rocked me in and then gave to me to rock my babies when I got pregnant with Emma! Every year I get to see how much bigger my babies have grown when they sit in this chair to pose for their birthday picture. I love this tradition!!!

My Baby is Seven Years Old!

I don't know how the time goes so fast. It seems like just yesterday he was my tiny little baby. He is still my baby and will always be my baby, though. He did promise me that he wouldn't grow anymore, so when I asked him what happened he said, "I'm trying to, but I just keep growing!!!"

Thursday was his actual birthday so we went out to celebrate at dinner. Then yesterday we had friends out to the trampoline park for some fun!!! The dodge ball games were serious!!
