Our church has a pond and lets people fish from it.  We decided to take Hudson fishing one evening.  Before Brian even got the bait on the hook, Hudson fell in.  He was practicing casting and slipped and fell in the muddy water.  
We had a hard time pulling him out we were laughing so hard.  
He was a muddy mess!
I can't remember what this picture was about
Finally, after about 30 minutes, Hudson caught a fish!  He was really proud of that little fish and REALLY wanted to take him home and eat him, but we talked him into setting it free again.  
Summer fun!

Quick Indiana trip

A couple of weeks ago, we made a quick trip up to Indiana to celebrate our 2 niece's and nephew's birthdays.  They had the party at the local park.  We had a lot of fun celebrating all of them.

First Day of Preschool

Yesterday was Hudson' first day for preschool at our church.  He was super excited and ready for drop off.  He walked right in, sat in his seat and said, "Bye, Mom."  Que the tears - from me, not him.  When I picked him up, he said he had a great day.  He answered a rule question correctly and got to pick a toy out of the treasure chest.  He chose sunglasses.  

He is such a little sweetie with a tender heart, and has so much love and compassion.  On the way to school we prayed that he'd have a great day and learn lots and he added, "God, some kids may need to go to time out.  Amen."

So full of personality!

One last attempt - I couldn't quite get the picture I was going for, but that's okay.

Visiting Friends

A few weeks ago, our good friends came back from Michigan for a quick visit.  We've missed them these past 18 months, but they seem to be really happy there.  We had a great time hanging out. 
Chillin' in Patrick and Virginia's backyard 
Patrick found some big sheets of cardboard and all the guys ran the kids around the yard on them.
Redneck fun
I love all the kid's faces in this picture, especially Beckett's.  They had a blast!

We miss our friends again.

Quick Update

Well, we moved last Wednesday, so things have been crazy busy here!  Our internet is finally back up, but still no tv.  I haven't missed anything since we've been busy unpacking and working on the new house.  
We were incredibly blessed that our house sold immediately after it was on the market, and we and had multiple offers, so it couldn't have been any easier.  We LOVED the location, but really wanted something bigger.  We had the best neighbors and really enjoyed our two years there.  

These pictures were taken a couple of days before we moved.  I let the boys play with shaving cream and the hose.  
"Boys.  Nouns with dirt on them." 
Beckett enjoyed tasting the cream.  I can't get him to eat too many veggies, but he'll gladly eat shaving cream.
Hudson wanted every inch of his body covered.  I love this picture of him, it really shows off just how happy he is.  
We're going to miss that backyard.
