Family Times

Mikes Grandma came to visit for a little bit, so before she left we got together at Mikes sister's house. It was a fun time we got to eat some home made icecream and have a little photo shoot! Our little niece in the picture above was so cute...she picked out where she wanted her picture taken and even gave some was great!

3 years and counting!

Tuesday June 17th Michael and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary!!! It was the best day! The weather was PERFECT! While Mike was at work my mom, grandma, sister, and little Emma all went out to one of our favorite places, Josephine's Tea Room. The lunch was great, the dessert was even better!

Mike and I celebrated our anniversary in forest park. We ate at the boat house, and went for a paddle boat ride. It was so nice to be outside on the water and just spend time together. It was just a beautiful day!
My Handsome husband!!!!

Take Me Out To The Ball Game!!!

The last day Aaron, Jessica, and Brady were here we all went on a tour of Bush Stadium. Like I said earlier, Aaron LOVES the Cardinals and he really wanted to see a game, but they were out of town this week so the we thought we would do the next best thing.....tour the ball park! We got to see the World Series Trophie, sit in the press box, go on the field, sit in the dug out, it was great!

Erica's Graduation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My baby sister is all grown up and graduating Highschool!!!! I really can't believe it! It was a nice weekend, we were able to spend some good time together as a family, which these days doesn't happen too often. The only one missing was my little brother who is in Sacramento serving a mission for our church, so I thought I would throw in a picture of him also!!!

on our way...
and again...
Here he is WHAT A STUD!!!!

Homecomings and Trivia Nights...

My older brother is a pilot in the Air Force and just got home last week from serving a tour of duty over in Kuwait. Poor little Brady really didn't know what to do when he got up to Aaron, he just kind of looked at him like..."I think I remember this guy..." It didn't take him too long at all to warm up to his his daddy though!! Aaron's favorite baseball team is the the Cardinals (of course!!) so we all wore the colors to welcome him home. We are all to thankful to have him home safe and are grateful for his sacrifice!!! Love you Aaron!!!You're the best!!!!!!

The little town we live in had their annual Homecoming Fair. Luckily everyone was in town for Erica's Graduation, so we had a BBQ at our house then everyone walked over to the fair. Brady and Jackson had a good time on the playground.

The Edwardsville Ward had a Trivia Night to raise money for camp this year so after my mom begged us to be on their team=) we decided it would be fun! Our team came in 3rd place (thanks to Lauren and Jason the dynamic duo!!) It was a good time we ate, laughed, and got to listen to some good music!
