Our mystery hole

Check out this hole Mike found in the yard during the sandbox project -- pictures to follow of our new toy! About the hole, see the red in the grass? That's the end of that long shovel Mike is holding - he stuffed it in and there was enough space to fit in the whole shovel! He has filled 4 or 5 wheel barrows of dirt in there and it is still taking more dirt!

Happy Memorial Day!

Fun in the sun at the beach, in the sand, in the lake, and at the park with cousins! Here are some favorites from the day! And below is a slide show of lots more!

Nice to meet you Baby Jadyn!

We were so happy to spend time with my cousin Holly who lives in Chicago and her son, Mason, and new daughter, sweet baby Jadyn. As you can see, she is just beautiful, and sweet as can be. She lets everybody hold her (just like Anna did). I hope our new baby is the same way! Anna and Carla were both so sweet touching and trying to take care of Jadyn :)

Yippee -- I passed!!!!!

Today I became a certified as a Clinical Exercise Specialist through American College of Sports Medicine -- what a relief! Thank you everyone for all of your help, especially Mike and our moms, and Aunt Maribeth, and to the girls for their patience :) Never again will Carla have to worry about "Mommy's cards" (flash cards) and Anna is excited because "Now Mommy can play with us more!" (so sad about the last few weeks, and happy about from now on!) We had a fun evening celebrating out in the sun playing in the water.

We sure are having amazing spring weather!!!

Here is the result of Anna having some photo-editing fun!

New Sink and Old Friends!

Our new sink arrived (to be installed along with new kitchen counter tops in June - yeah!) and the box provided lots of early morning fun!

Then our friends Aubrey and Dane came to play, and everyone got along so well together! We've missed our Donovan buddies :)

PS- How funny is Carla with the pacie?! It was her first time trying one and she's almost 2! Same sort of thing with the dolly's baby bottle!
