How can you not love this cute little face! He's such a great big brother. This was him today when Jace and I went in to get him from after his nap. I asked him if he wanted to get out, and he kept saying no, then he saying Jace and pointing as his pillow. After I figured out what he wanted I just laughed. He's so funny, and so darn cute! He wanted his little brother to hang out with him in his crib for a little while!
Looking at this picture of them next to each other, I can't believe how much Jace has grown! He's filled out so much from when he was born! They still look so much alike to me!
I love these next three series of pictures! Jess grabbed Conner and attempted to throw him down the slip n slide on the side of the slide. Conner wasn't to sure about it, but he didn't slide very well either. Poor little guy always getting picked on by his dad!
Conner thought that the ball returner thingy was pretty cool. I was just waiting for him to smash a finger, but surprisingly enough he never did.
Tay is a pretty good bowler herself!
Doing her victory dance!
We bowled two games and this is what Jace did the entire time! He is such a great little guy!
I was so embarrassed!
The Thursday before we went to Moses Lake for Tay's birthday the boys and I went over to go swimming with my mom and sisters! I hadn't taken Conner yet this summer, so I was excited to see how he would do! He did great! He loves the water, so it's kind of scary! He would just take off down the slides and some of them were in the deeper end. He wouldn't even wait until there was someone to catch him, so there were plenty of near drowning experiences! I am so sold now on putting him in swimming lessons next year! It makes me way to nervous to not have him learn asap how to swim since he seriously has no fear!
I brought this hat for Jace to sport at the pool, but he never even got to wear it. We had some friends there that were sitting in the shade, so they were so sweet to keep an eye on Jace for me while I played Baywatch rescuing my 18 month old from all of his near death experiences. : ) What a cutie! : )
It was lots of fun, but after an afternoon of swimming, the late night last night caught up with them. Conner was grouchy! He has never been so grouchy as he got today! Little stinker.
Then here are the babies! Ryder is 5 months old and Jace is three weeks old. We wanted to get a picture of them together because they were kind of wearing the same colors. These guys are going to best buds! : )
I love how peaceful a sleeping baby looks.
This was one of our attempts at getting a picture!
I guess this was Jess and I's attempt at getting a picture together!
Here we are at the fireworks. This was our first 4th in the Tri-Cities, so we weren't sure how the fireworks were. They ended up not being to bad! They started about 10 oclock, so the little kiddos were so tired. It was way past their bed time, and believe me it made for a very unbehaved, tired Conner the next day! : ) It was lots of fun though. We parked the truck in like the perfect spot, because we were far enough away that they weren't too loud for the kids but we could still see them really good! We all just sat on top of the tool box in the back of the truck, and enjoyed the show! : ) The picture above is Jess and Ryan getting settled with Conner and Ashlynn.
Here's Amanda and I. It was hard to take a super good pic because it was kind of windy, and poor Amanda kept getting my hair in her face. Us mom's don't really get pictures of us often because we're normally the ones taking them, so atleast we tried.
We were just waiting for the fireworks to start. I love Ash in this picture! She's so cute!
Conner was so tired! He made it through the whole thing though, but as soon as we started the drive home he was out! Jace just enjoyed the show from inside the truck with Ryder. This is what he looked like the entire time. He's so stinkin cute! : )
