Sweet Summertime

The last day of school has come and gone and we are officially on summer vacation! The kids were so excited to welcome Jack home from his last day. They rode to the bus stop 15 minutes early and played on their bikes while we waited.

 Oh, the drama!

 Here he comes!!!

 Big hugs for Grandma Nancy too :)
 Jack also got an award for being a sweet friend at school. He really is a sweet kid and very well liked by the kids at school so I wasn't surprised at all...but I was super proud of him! Another school year in the books! Second grade, watch out! Here comes Jack!!!

Owen's Last Day!

Just thought I would add a picture of Owen's last day of preschool last month! He will be on his way to Kindergarten this fall!

End of First Grade!

Jack is currently at his last day of first grade! Holy cow! This year FLEW by!!! A few weeks ago the class did an end of the year singing event. We were fortunate to have both sets of Grandparents attend plus Aunt Sarah, Aunt Becky and Gus! Such great memories. Jack is in the front row with a white polo shirt!

 With about 30 days left of school we made a countdown using the sun in the picture and each day had a paper ring. He got to take one off every day and today was FINALLY his last ring!

 A few pictures of my first grader before he comes home a second grader!

 All smiles walking to the bus stop!

Can't wait to have him home all summer (remind me of this in a month!!!)

Memorial Day

We headed up north for Memorial Day this year but instead of camping we stayed in a hotel since Larson Beach House isn't QUITE finished (although it is close! We headed over to check out the progress and hang out on the beach though!

 Sarah and Paul also had the good sense to rent a mini cabin at the local state park so we could play outside and have campfires. It was PERFECT. Ella enjoyed "her" baby....a lot!
 Love these pictures. Who knows what Paul told him but it was obviously VERY funny.

 He ran right over to share!
 Ella LOVES Gus...
 ...even when he doesn't want her to.

 Beautiful sunset over Lake Michigan. This was our view from the mini cabin!

 There was a LOT of this over the weekend too...BASEBALL!

 Nutty Ella

 So beautiful! Can't wait for the sunsets at Larson Beach!
