Morning at the park

For us to go to the park, we have to get there early before it gets too hot and before the equipment gets hot.  Josey got to play today and w.o.u.l.d. n.o.t. stop eating the rocks. 

 Look at those long skinny legs.

 Monday night after the family home evening lesson, I went into the kitchen to make cookies for treat.  Ben wanted to help, so I told him to wash his hands.  Well, he must've used some super force and somehow broke the faucet.  There was water gushing all over the counter and under the sink.  The shutoff for the water was stripped, so it wouldn't turn off by simply turning the knob.  Matt had to get the wrench and REALLY put some muscle into it to get it off and even then it wasn't wanting to turn off.  Well he got it
turned off and we got the mess cleaned up.  We just didn't have a faucet for 24 hours.  No big deal, the bathroom is closeby.

Silver Beach, Michigan

Josey LOVES the beach..the sand..the water...everything.
 Ben ate a bag of blueberries.

 Lucy had fun running back and forth getting water.  She also had fun swimming.

 When we were getting ready to leave Jo got herself in this ring and spent the next 15 minutes or so trying to walk with it on her waist.  Quite funny.
 And she crashed into the water.
We had a fun, exhausting time.  Matt and I are looking forward to the day we can have a relaxing time at the beach with the kids and just have fun.  It's a lot of work taking 4 little kids to the beach.  We still have fun, but it's tiring.

Just another crazy day

Josey LOVES shoes, until you put them on her feet, then she tolerates them.

 Ben looked out the window and saw that it had just started to rain and asked if he could play in the rain.  "of course little dude".
 there were even puddles for a short time

 Jo wanted to go out really bad...maybe next year baby girl.

He did this himself

Ben came up with the boots and the cowboy hat all by himself.
In fact he loves Ally's boots so much he wants to wear them just about as much as his Peyton Manning jersey.

Jo Jo's birthday and church

These are out of order, but at least they are posted.
We did Josey's birthday after church. 
She got some fun noisy toys.

 Miss Lilly

 The craziness that pursues after the opening of presents.  They were all clamoring for a toy.
 Miss Josey Jo is not so much into cake and well not so much into brownies. But she does LOVE ice cream.  So we had ice cream and brownies.  Not many pictures because she wasn't that into the whole idea of dessert and prefers to have a spoon or fork in her hand when eating.  She does quite well eating with a utensil.
 Aunt Tara made her this cute shirt.
 Lil and Jo
My handsome little man.
 Oh the craziness she causes Matt and I.  She was a R.O.Y.A.L. T.E.R.R.O.R. Sunday morning before church.  She wanted NOTHING to do with this cute dress.  There's a matching headband for it and its just cute. 
 Ally just wanted a picture of her reading the Book of Mormon.

 My beautiful girl!
