Father's Day & T-Ball

Well happy {LATE} Father's Day to you Dads out there!! This was the card I made for one of my Dad's, My Dad to be exact. :)
Sunday we had waffles for breakfast then we took our Annual trip to Tiki Beach. {Lake Superior} It was SO Cold by the lake!! Only 60 some degrees!! BRRRRR!!! We walked along the beach then ate our lunch in the van. Walked along the beach some more and left.

We drove to different lake not far away and it was 84!! What a difference!! We had some ice cream and the boys went for a quick swim.

Here are the boys and "sharkie" on the top of the van! :)

{greg & i}
On our way home it started raining. We stopped for pizza and went home. It was a fun Father's Day with Greg & the Boys! :)
Monday was HOT!!
We put watter in our little pool and the Boys cooled off in that for most of the morning. We had some lunch and I had them take a little nap so they would be rested for T-Ball. Well they slept for almost 3 1/2 hours!! I guess they needed a nap!! :)

It was picture night at T-Ball so we had to be there EARLY!! I brought a picnic supper for us. We shared with Chloe! :) She said that I make the BEST sandwiches and would like them again next week at T-Ball.

Today was ANOTHER HOT day!! This time we went to visit our cousins at the lake. Two of my Mom's Sisters {and their families} are renting lake homes near us. It was fun to see all the little cousins play.
Alex is 7
Evan, Jabin and Amaya are almost 6
Elsie is 5
and Alma is 3 1/2.
My Aunt Carla took most of the pictures today. I hope she will share them with us. {Hint, Hint! :)} The kids got to play in the water. We grilled out, the kids did some fishing and we headed home. :)

Jabin's Program

On Tuesday May 26th Jabin had his Kindergarten Program.
{It's about time I post some pictures!!}

We had a great time watching Jabin and his School Friends perform Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash, sing us some cute songs and show us a year in review of Fingerplays they have learned! :)

{Jabin and Mr. Moore}
Jabin's part was to hang up the stockings.
I can't believe the Boys will be starting FIRST GRADE in September!! They met their NEW Teachers last week. They are SO excited!! They will be is separate classes again next year.
We had a busy last few weeks of school. And Greg was on "vacation" last week so we worked outside when we could. I have SO much to share and so little time it seems! :)
Today is the last day of Summer School for the Boys. They are looking forward to "Summer Vacation"!! Tomorrow they just want to sleep in and then we are going to work on our Father's Day Cards for Dad. :)
Have a great day!!

Happy Birthday Greg!

{Happy Birthday!!!!}
I thought it would be fun to post a few pictures of Greg & the Boys on his past Birthdays!

This was a few days ago...
Greg started the deck and the boys couldn't wait to climb up and check it out!

The boys had a busy few weeks finishing up with school. They were done with school on Monday. Summer school starts tomorrow! They have two classes that last for 5 days. Then they will be home with me! :)
Greg has the week off and has been working around the house. He is going to play golf tonight, so we took him out to eat last night.
