In no particular order whatsoever, here's a smidgen of our summer events...ok, maybe more than a smidgen. Is that even a word?
Lots of fun times at the Children's Park in Fultondale. Favorite activity, throwing rocks into the water
Mama didn't want Fulton diving into the rocks
On the go
Sweet sleeper with booty in the air
Hello. My name is Mr. Everywhere
And, the 2012 garden is planted!
No Mama, I'm not going to eat the rocks. Said no 10 month old ever.
Playing in peace while Fulton takes his morning nap
I've bumped my head on every table today!
Happy post nap baby
One of Ridge's favorites- putt putt
First time bowling
And, it's growing!
Dirty dirty little toes crawling around back yard
Dry and potty trained boy!
Rub a dub dub 3 boys in a tub- with cousin Sawyer
sweet baby skin
"shaving" with dada
following the red laser light
Happy surprise birthday dada!
Anniversary weekend! Happy 7 years!
My busy 13 month old
busy busy boys

mowing the sidewalk
watering our huge squash plant that took over our whole garden. not worth it since neither of my boys have liked squashed cooked any way yet...
Ruthie playing in Fulton's crib. Supervised play time ;)
Finally finished the last piece in Fulton's nursery. And, he was 11 months old.
Tractor riding with mama's childhood friend, Denny
big boy practicing on big boy bike
Waterfall in Ryan and Crystal's neighborhood
The only way to contain Fulton at the park. Glad you like it bud
First squash harvest. Grilled these bad boys up! Yumm!
Ruthie and Alan bonded :)
I should've done a whole post on Fulton's first watermelon. He LOVES it!
birthday at the zoo
lovin on baby brother, or annoying him
my roaring lion
Fulton gave it up poor baby. He said, where's my crib?
Practice. Practice. Practice.
Fulton and Sawyer
Fulton- Yes, he's gone and the cars and trucks are all mine!!!
Ridge stayed at Nonnie's for 3 days to go to VBS
Having fun with 100% attention from Nonnie
Growing tomatoes! They look like bunches of grapes
I need these eyelashes.
Went to watch Skyler and Tyler play baseball
Sprinkler fun. Fulton thinks he's 3 and Ruthie is not enjoying it.
Talking it up over a bag of chips and hummus.
lakin. sexy husband
First day of "school" or MDO. June 2012. 3 years old
After his first day of MDO. So excited and loved it.
Sign to take to Nonnie after her surgery
And it keeps growing...
that was a good nap
like son. Working on our table manners
one of his favorite places
Dada opening his father's day present
it's much more fun with Dada
Jesus storybook Bible
Ridge loves "reading" this book. Sharing it upside down with Fulton
and more.. seriously, I gave so many away. I couldn't keep up
throwing rocks. hmm. gotta work on that form
our nature walk
drinking from the water outside
love this face and this shirt!
Ridge's weird day after reaction to we think mosquito bites. notice left leg (with bandaid) is swollen
huge swollen left knee. terrible experiences. and breathing difficulty at night. very scary. keep benadryl on hand at all times.
pool with Dada
And, there's 7 months difference between them. And, Reese is older. Can't tell. She was so sweet and kept calling Fulton, "baby"
Fun with Skyler, Tyler, and Drew
boat fun, even though he looks miserable
still unsure about the tube he just rode on
and the nightlight happened. began to be afraid of the dark. thank you target for your glowing orange dumptruck.
aww, sweet brothers
ok, that was over fast
when we played outside at 8 pm because it was 105 degrees during the day
again, he really thinks he's 3
my one and only venture to the pool by myself even though I said I was going to do it every Sunday afternoon during naptime...sigh
sweet baby face
we loved our okra and watermelon! and no need to buy tomatoes for sure
we realized Ridge's dinosaur eats faster than him. no joke
our actual anniversary. spent it taking care of 2 sick babies all night. :) Romantic!
devastated the farmer's market was close. oh i love you Ridge
Happy Anniversary honey!
Can. Not. Be. Still
Zoo fun with Harris
