Summer iphone dump, wheeew!

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
 
bedtime stories

(something happened to this pic. looks a little distorted)
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...
 
working hard

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.

pretend sleeping
 
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 father..

like son. Working on our table manners

mohawk baby

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

and more...

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.

hey!

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

no fear
 
superman

sweet baby face

we loved our okra and watermelon! and no need to buy tomatoes for sure

seriously...
 
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!
 
more watermelon
 
devastated the farmer's market was close. oh i love you Ridge

Happy Anniversary honey!

New love: cutting with his scissors

Mama

Love that Ridge reads the Crock Pot book! And the pictures of Fulton eating watermelon in the high chair with the face like he's been caught "red handed" and the squirmy shopping cart baby cracked me up! =) Love those little boogers!

Lauren said...
