Pool and Park Play

The last few evenings I've been going on bike rides with Porter. . .

When he gets a bike injury, nurse Ainsley is right by his side. . .

She is such a caring big sister!

Summer weather is here, and we have spent the last few days at the park and pool! I have my van trunk filled with sand toys and a picnic blanket. I have my pool bag packed with towels, pool toys, snacks and of course my camera. . .

This is for you, Mike. . . :)

Tonight during my shower I was serenaded by Trey playing the recorder. . .nice, loud, steady notes. . not the most relaxing shower ever, but funny.

The Science Center with cousins and Grammy

Porter couldn't wait to ride the hot air balloon!

Look at all these boys. . .who would have thought, after growing up with sisters. Now the boys have outnumbered the girls.

It was a fun morning, but I got a headache later on. Keeping an eye on 5 kids 5 and under
must have made me tense :)

OK, and when Porter put these goggles on, I totally saw my husband when he used to wear big glasses :)After writing all these posts tonight, I am thinking about how God has blessed us. He is amazing!

Robot Party

Porter had a robot themed party for his 4th birthday, complete with robot freeze dancing, pin the button on the robot, "Robot says," and "cop, cop, bad bot." The "Porter Bot" cake. . .before Trey took a bite of the marshmallow :)He was very excited to rip open presents. He woke up to his favorite present of all. . .A Hot Wheels Bicycle!!!! Complete with a noisy throttle on the handlebars. Goodbye to the girly bike that ding dings :)GooF's favorite present was the tee ball stand. . .thanks mom and dad :) I finally hit a homer!

He had his little friends Jordan and Cohen there, along with family.

Porter, you are such a joy! Your smile and outgoing personality brightens the day of those around you!
Thanks to the party planner and decorator. . .

The Sandbox!

Grandpa Seth built Porter a sandbox for his 4th Birthday! It has been a big hit! Thanks Grandpa Seth and Gramma Becky!! Thanks too Uncle Mark for the help and Auntie Jackie for the new sand toys!

Little brother is a big fan of the sandbox!

Not to mention the wheelbarrow rides that came before moving, literally, a ton of sand :)

Homeade ice-cream and Roasted Marshmallows

We celebrated Porter's 4th birthday at my parents house on Sunday! The grandkids loved making homeade ice-cream. . .they each got to taste test it with a spoon!!! Ainsley girl, I love your expressions :)

Brain freeze?!

That's my buff man cranking it, and explaining why it doesn't make any difference if we crank it faster.
Grammy and Grampa had a tractor cake for Porter, with no rocks (aka sprinkles) on it. . . just how he likes it. Then fun Uncle GooF had to mix everyones cake and ice-cream while making his sound effects.

The cousins played outside. . .

And then we roasted marshmallows. . .

Did I mention Grandpa missed this part bc he was in the ER getting 7 stitches on his hand?! He had some worried grandchildren, but was a hero when he showed off his injury. While he was gone we said a prayer and made him cards.
