Weekend in the Mountains

Thank you to all who serve our country including my own Papas - We love the USA!

We got to head up to the Smoky Mountains for some time outdoors.

Jake ate lots of grilled chicken.

Faith was impressed with the strawberry Fanta (my fave).

Caleb loved the giant bag of M&M's.

Brother Love

 Jake has been such a dear big brother to Caleb lately.  They are such buddies!

We found this baby salamander.

Jake loved playing with it, watching it wiggle.
Faith was appropriately appalled, she qas quite squeamish all day!

Little Caleb is much more independent at the river this year.  He loves to watch sticks and leaves (or flip flops) float down the littel waterfall.

It was a nice, relaxing day...always fun to be be together.

Jake's Party - Putt Golf & Games

Jake's Sonic/Putt Putt Party was soooo fun!

A group of elementary boys make quite the crew...

They were cracking me up most of the day.

Faith got to invite friend, Katie.

It was cool, but we still had lots of fun golfing.

Then we moved indoors for cake and gifts.

Birthday Boy!

Caleb enjoyed blowing bubbles in his milk.


Jake was thrilled to receive his first "credit card" - a Target gift card.
He thinks he is rich!

Then onto the video games...

I love this birthday boy!

One of my favorite things about spring is getting back outside.

Caleb is learning to pedal and ride well (with training wheels, of course).

Flying kites is a perinnial favorite.

This day was extra windy - a storm was coming.

After the storm, the entrance to our neighborhood was blocked.

Our neighbor's peach tree lost limbs into our yard, but we are thankful there was not any real damage.  Many people lost everything.
I'm sort of wishing I parked the van outside the garage.
