First Sleepover

Yesterday Jack and I met Aunt Becky at the Fowlerville Fair before going to spend the night at her house. Here is Becky and Jack on the Ferris wheel.

And again.
I have no idea what that face is but Jack was unsure about the little cars.
Eventually he got into it and then we wanted to go on all the rides.
Becky and Jack getting some whiplash on the raceway.
Check out that nervous smile.
He ended up loving it!
Becky and Jack in the fun house.
Getting strapped into another spinning ride. Mommy watched a lot of these because they make me want to puke after awhile.
Ha, you couldn't even see Jack over the bar.
We managed to totally freak Jack out by taking him on the sack slide and then a thunder storm came through so we stood under a tent for a long time waiting for the weather to pass. Eventually we got to go on more rides but first we headed over to the figure eight races. This was the most ridiculous thing ever especially because it was really muddy from the storm.
Total mess. Jack loved it as long as I held his ears. It was super loud.
After the races Jack tried out a few more rides before we went back to Becky's house. We spent the night there and he got to do all sorts of fun things this morning like swimming in Aunt Becky's pool and going for a walk by the river and trying his first Slurpee.
After Aunt Becky's house we headed home to get ready for the Tigers game. Here is Jack in his gear.
The boys in their jerseys.
Owen playing with Aunt Becky at the game.
Looking serious.
More playing with Aunt Becky.
Hiding under a hat.
He was loving all the attention. He also loved the water fountain and he spent a long time saying "water, water". For those of you who know Owen, this should be no surprise.
Uncle Paul (with crazy look on his face) making Owen fly.
More flying.
He could do this all day!
So fun!
The Tigers won and we got to see some good fireworks. Owen spent the time during the fireworks still watching the fountain. I am hoping for some good sleeping in tomorrow since we have been so busy this week!

Update in Pictures

I am a little behind on pictures. This is Grandma and Jack running through the sprinklers last week.
Aunt Sarah is in town for a visit. She is in charge of the dog sprinkler here. Jack was loving the dog this day!
More sprinkler fun!
Owen was watching from his post on the horse.
Cozy Coupe fun. I am pretty sure I don't have a picture of the boys and I that is this good. Everyone is even looking at the camera!
Here is Owen on the zebra one random night.
Yesterday Taylor and Rachel came to stay with Grandma overnight. Here is Rachel taking Jack down the slide at the park. He was so excited to see them that he was yelling and jumping up and down and running around. Even after spending 2 days with the girls he was still that excited when they came over tonight.
Bumpy slide fun.
Taylor helped Owen get down the slide. He was loving it! He was REALLY sad when she left tonight. He kept asking "Where Taylor go?"
Owen under the play structure.
Owen going down the bumpy slide his own way.

Crazy Owen

I am too tired to post all my new pictures tonight but here is an Owen video to tide you over! This was taken at about 11:00 last night when he should have been sound asleep.

Happy Birthday and Congratulations Aunt Sarah!!!!!

First of all it is Aunt Sarah Birthday today! Pictures of her celebration are below. Even MORE exciting is that Aunt Sarah got the results from her Medical Board Exam today. She was quite nonchalant initially just telling me that "I passed!". Upon further inspection it seems that not only did she pass, she kicked that exams butt! She didn't even tell me how good it really was so I looked it up and it turns out she is in the top 10 percent! Proud sister bragging here! Congratulations Aunt Sarah! We are all SO PROUD of you!!!!! These pictures are of the Birthday celebration out at Island Lake State Park. Here is Owen hanging out with his favorite lady!
Trying to drink from the bowl like Otis.
He really liked that water bowl!
He played in this thing for a really long time.
He also managed to get filthy. My OCD tendencies hate stuff like this but I try really hard to let it go. I only got wipes out once the whole evening.
Happy baby.
Jack took his usual post as the birthday candle engineer. He takes this job seriously.
Posing for a picture with Aunt Sarah with a very natural looking smile. Check out the awesome candle distribution.
Jack was excited!
I love Jacks face here. Make a wish Aunt Sarah!
