Oh Summertime

I absolutely love summertime! We have had loads of fun so far boating, swimming and just enjoying the beautiful weather while it lasts.

Quinton and Drake taking a little dip in the pool. These two have seen quite a bit of each other lately. My good friend Calyn(Drake's mom) just moved in around the corner from us and we have had such a fun time together. I love having your best friends as neighbors! Notice how my child is much more interested in his red car than anything else. He got that for his birthday and can not get enough of it. He loves that thing. I take him on a walk every night in it and he cries every time we get back home.

Q just hanging out on the boat. Boating is my all time favorite. There is nothing better than spending the day out on the lake.

Quinton's first tube ride.

Quinton thinks driving the boat is the best thing ever. He is kind of obsessed with steering wheels.

Happy 1st Birthday Q

Wow, I can't believe my baby is already one! We have had such a fun year with Quinton, by far the best year of my life. I have loved every minute of it. I can't even describe to you the way I feel about this little guy. He means the world to me. I love his laugh. Its the cutest thing ever. He is constantly laughing even when he's pretty sure what your doing is not funny at all he'll still give a courtesy laugh just to make you feel good. You can defiantly tell the difference between the two but you've got to love his effort. I love his hugs and kisses. There is seriously nothing better. Almost every time you ask Quinton for a kiss he will give you one, opened mouthed and all. I love his silly expressions, his tired cuddle, the sounds he makes(mama is my favorite of course), the many ways he looks at me(love those eyes) and just watching him play and discover new things which consumes my entire day and I wouldn't change it for anything. Happy birthday Quinton! I love you!

Q loved his cake!

We had a little party for Quinton yesterday at the park with family and friends. It was kindof a yucky windy day but we still had a lot of fun. Quinton loved all the presents he got, especially this little car. He has not left its side since he got it. We finally had to hide it in the garage. He threw a little fit but it didn't take long for him to find another toy to take his mind off it. Thank you everybody for the presents and fun! We love you!

4th of July Weekend

Bran didn't have work on Friday so we went up to the cabin Thursday night and hung out there all day Friday. We were planning on going boating that day but the weather didn't cooperate so we decided to head into West and hit up the Imax. We came home Friday night cause I just couldn't miss out on all the fourth of July festivities. I'm a sucker for the parade. Every year I wonder why I sit out in the blistering hot sun for hours to watch a few floats go by. My poor husband did not want to go at all but came just to make me happy. Thanks Bran. Maybe next year you will be able to bribe me out of it ( this years bribes were pretty good but I still turned them down) What was I thinking?? We still had a good time though.

Quinton's favorite thing in the world.

We went to the Chuckars game before the fireworks which was a big mistake. Quinton only lasted two innings before we had to leave. He is way too busy to sit and watch a baseball game. Maybe we will try again next year when he's a little older.

Quinton loved the fireworks. He was really tired by the time they were over and definately ready to go home but overall we had a great day and hope all of you did too. I love the celebrating the 4th and I'm so grateful the country I live in.
