Long Overdue

Way back when we were working on Alex’s room (pretty much a year ago), Wade built and wired a lamp. He had an odd piece he had found at work and thought it looked cool. He added a round base, painted the top and bottom, and wired it. My job was finding a lampshade. We…

Kid Friendly Decorating

In honor of Grant’s birthday (today is his “real” birthday), we joined the Strouds on a trip to Rachel’s bakery (she made Alex’s awesome pirate birthday cake) to decorate cupcakes! Everyone had a blast and Rachel was awesome with the kids. She pretty much let them do anything and everything to her bakery space –…

Wade and I decided on a family outing to Port Washington. I’d never been and he thought it’d be fun. Alex was excited once fishing was mentioned and Teague always loves a trip in the car.

    The picture of you slipping and sliding is perfect!! Such a great mom to change into her suit and show the boys how it’s done!!! Plus, I captured a great action shot.

Hide N Seek

We’ve had quite a few games of hide ‘n seek at our house lately. Obviously Teague has been enjoying them (and paying attention to the rules) because tonight he walked up to Alex and asked “hide n seek?”. Alex quickly agreed. Teague walked over to the chair.
