Camping Out

IMG_3728A little camp out a few weeks back at the woods on the Marrs farm. It turned out to be a pretty nice night despite threats of rain! IMG_3687 IMG_3720Henry’s buddy, Nathan, and his dad joined us. He’s such a sweet boy and they had so much fun. Caught a lot of toads too. IMG_3711 IMG_3771Roasted some hot dogs. IMG_3745Lots of little adventuring, tent building, exploring and just silly kids.IMG_3645

Last Beach Day of Summer

IMG_4305The Newlyweds! We went to visit the Munin Family’s beachfront home in Michigan City recently and although it was cold we had a lot of fun playing on the beach. IMG_4299 IMG_4300 IMG_4341 IMG_4352It was hard to keep the kids out of the water. They didn’t seem to care that it was a little to chilly for swimming… until they got really wet in the little pools of water on the beach. Not a bad problem to have, really. IMG_4360

Cake Reveal (For the Kids)

Not long ago Henry and Nora helped to decorate this cake that was pre-frosted with white frosting. They were pretty excited when we told them it was all for them. But then we explained that the color inside of the cake would indicate if the new baby on the way would be: pink for a girl or blue for a boy!

As you can see they are very excited to be welcoming a baby sister in December of this year!

First Day Of School

IMG_3587Henry began his year of four-year-old preschool today. Everyone was so excited this morning. He did such a great job getting ready and starting his day. Drop off was great and his teachers seem so wonderful. New year, new teachers, new routines, new friends… so much to look forward to!IMG_3597 IMG_3555Nora will begin two-year-old jr. preschool on Friday. She was so proud to get her very own backpack this year and meet her teacher last week. Fingers crossed that we won’t have any separation issues. I know she will love it… and most likely will end up begging to go every day instead of Fridays only. IMG_3603 IMG_3566
