Jacob's Dream...

We recently had family pictures taken of us...(thanks so much, Trish!!!!)...anywho, we took some at Jacob's Dream... Now, the kiddos have always enjoyed going to "see the angels," but now Brendan thinks that every time we go that we have to take pictures....

This particular time Corbin was at Rainbow Bible School so it was just me, B, and Karter (our dog)... Brendan was soooo funny b/c he'd find a place and say "here, mom...take one here" and then pose for me and then immediately want to see the pictures... it makes me curious what parents did before things were digital????

Without further delay, here's the pics:

What we've been up to...

I've always known they were precious, but now you can see it, too! ;)

This is Karter, our lab...

Karter LOVES to play ball...he so far only knows 3 tricks: sit, shake, and down...

One of the things the boys love to do is get in Daddy's truck & play...

Ok, these next 3 are kinda gross so let me explain...we pulled up the concrete pad that our old A/C unit was sitting on...and there was this humongous earth worm below it! I've never seen one so big!!! It measured out to be about 10" and was almost as big around as my pinkie! It lasted longer than I thought it would...maybe 30 minutes before Brendan pulled it apart into 4 equal pieces!! Ha!

Brendan thinks it's fun to pull Karter's tail

Corbin's learning how to pose better

This picture was taken to put in the Daddy book...the boys love to help mow the yard...

Daddy & Brendan on the trampoline
