Another day at the beach

A day a Shakelford Banks

It has been a really rough week. Can't you tell? I keep thinking I am going to put pictures on here and I just have not had the time. We took the boat over to Shakelford Island and plopped down for two days in a row. This year Isaiah really liked the ocean and swam all around.

Our little guy and his GG.

Nomi's new dress

Grandma Gwen made this dress for Naomi and mailed it to us in NC. She looks so cute in it. The fabric used was also used by my Grandma used to make an outfit for me (Jamie) when I was her age. Thanks Grandma!


Mom and I took Isaiah and Naomi to the pool in Grandma and Grandpa Sanders' neighborhood.

New calf on the farm

Rick and Gwen had their first calf born yesterday. Rick was able to help her deliver. How cool! Hannah went to meet the baby and named him Cory. I tried to zoom in on the image so that you can see how much fun Rick and Hannah are having in the pictre but I could not. You will just have to click on it to see it up close.

Cousin Mim comes to visit

Last weekend Joel, Steph, and Mim came to visit. The adults went to the John Deere Classic golf tournament. The kids had a fun time playing. Mim tried to teach Nomi how to crawl but she has decided that she is not up for it yet. Why do today what you could put off till tomorrow? Especially when you have a mommy that will pick you up every time you cry.
Joel, Steph, and Mim are going to welcome a new addition to their family in December and we are all excited about that. Family gatherings and vacations are going to get more and more interesting!

New Do

I keep trying to do something different with Naomi's growing hair and today I tried my hand at rubber bands. Not the most fashionable thing ever and she cried the whole time I was trying to put them in and take them out.

Potty Training

Grandma Gwen helped potty training along by trying to start with Isaiah while he was at her house last week. We have been trying at home and he has had very few accidents. As you can see here he likes Thomas the Train underwear on his bottom as well as his head.

July 4th

We went to the Dubuque country club golf course and watched the parachuters and fireworks. The kids really loved it because they could play around on the nice grass. Naomi still isnt walking and has no teeth yet. She is my late bloomer. She will be 1 next month!

July 3rd

We went to the Dubuque festivities for the 4th which included an air show. Isaiah and Naomi did not appreciate the noise of the planes but Micah and I enjoyed ourselves. We did not stay for the fireworks due to a tornado watch.
