My boys are developing such personalities! We looked at Halloween costumes online one day(a few months ago) and the boys made up their mind that day! Carson was going to be a Black Ninja and Kellen a scarecrow!  How can a Mommy turn down those requests!  Of course I thought it would have been adorable for them to all have coordinated and themed, but they thought otherwise!  Poor Cruz got stuck with a hand-me-down of Kellen's.  He wasn't too hurt though and everyone was happy!  Enjoy my little Ninja, Buzz, and Scarecrow!

Okoboji Vacay

 Gabe and I and our boys got away for a few days to relax in Okoboji!  I took a lot of pictures on my phone so these are just the ones I captured on my camera!  It was pretty chilly the entire time we were there, but we still had fun mini golfing, going to the beach, going to Arnold's Park, and playing at a park and splash pad.  
It was so nice to get away and not have to worry about anything for a few days! We are slowly getting our house put back in order after the big storm that hit, but it was so nice not to think about that or anything else while we were away!  
The only day I got out my camera was the day at the beach!  So Enjoy! :)

4th of July

Our 4th was spent in Boji!  Our parents were gracious enough to watch our boys for a couple days so Gabe and I had a couple kid free days before they joined us!  It was so weird and quiet without the boys, but we tried to enjoy the couple days we had by relaxing.  My parents brought the boys up on Sunday and we spend a couple days on the lake with them!  They love the lake as much as we do so it was fun to see their excitement at all the little things!  Below are a few pictures from our 4th!

Cruz passed out on the boat- about the only time he didn't mind the boat!

We had a wonderful Easter at home--I know this post is a little late, but I'm trying to catch you all up ( in pictures) of the last year it seems like!  Time is just flying and our boys keep us so extremely busy; we wouldn't trade our life for the world though! We are full of love, orneriness, giggles, emotions. . oh the list could go on with these 3!  Cruz is starting to move, move, move so it's fun to watch them all just play! Below is our Easter in pictures.  This winter I was awful at getting my camera out of the bag- I'm really working on getting more pictures!

Below are some Easter pictures! We are blessed to have our families so close and to be able to spend so much time with them! The boys love to spend time at all their Grandpa's and Grandma's houses!!

Easter baskets!
Serious Face!

It's so hard to get a picture of 3 very active little boys. . .

My mom and Cruz hunting eggs!
Carson found money in his eggs!
Kellen did too! 
Searched for all the eggs!
My dad and Carson- hardly ever see these 2 outside without their eyes protected!  Like grandpa, like grandson! 
My Grandma Louise and Kellen
Grandpa Bill and Grandma Weezie!
Rocking some cool shades
Strutting his stuff!
Grandma Lori and Cruz
We often take what we can get when it comes to pictures!  3 out of 5 looking at the camera isn't bad! ;)
