Happy Leon Day!

June 25th is LEON day. Have you ever heard of it? LEON is NOEL spelled backwards. LEON day is the half-way mark until Christmas! It has been six months since Christmas and it is six months until Christmas. We are going to celebrate by reading the Christmas story today!

I love summer! We have gone through TONS of popsicles! Caleb & Abby are loving summer vacation and I am enjoying spending more time with them.

I have been inspired by other bloggers (Crystal in particular) to post some pictures of the flowers in our yard. Enjoy!

Knockout Roses



New Guinea Impatiens

Carl has done an awesome job on our yard and flowers! I think it looks beautiful!

Isaac turns 1

A one-year-old son is so many things,
a tiny discoverer of butterfly wings,
a hugger of teddies, a sweet sleepyhead,
and someone to dream for in bright years ahead…

A special new person who, right from the start,
has a place in the family and, of course, in your heart.

And, just when you think that you’ve learned all the things
that your dear son is and the joy that he brings,
a hug or a grin comes with such sweet surprise
that love finds you smiling with tears in your eyes!

Happy Birthday Ella! My baby girl turned 4 a couple weeks ago! She loves her new bike!

Happy Birthday Robbie! I couldn't ask for a more thoughtful brother! I love this picture although it's blurry. It was my last picture before my battery went dead.

We have gone camping every year for the last 9 years. Cave Run Lake in Kentucky in our favorite spot. This year Grammy & Pappy, The Kennedys, and Randy & Michele and Nate joined us. It was a great time!
Our kids put hundreds of miles on their bikes while we are there!

Caleb and Carl show off their catch!

Isaac loved his first camping trip.

Ella loves Grammy's camp cookin'

Abby and Kiana

We hiked up to an observation tower. Our kids were exhausted when we reached the top.

We had a lot of fun fishing and swimming and cruising around!

Abby wants to move there.
