Auntie Emily Visits

Another great summer week! We saw the play "The Velveteen Rabbit". It was really cute and now Lily has been asking, "Can I see that big Easter bunny again?" This was the test run to see if she would be able to go see Mary Poppins and I think she will make it!

Auntie Emily (Lily's idol) is in town. We went to the Children's Museum with her and saw the Barbie exhibit.

This one is hard to see...:(

Chillin in the limo!
Taking a drive!


Their favorite was the bathroom on the RV. ha!

Bridget...asleep of course!

At our local park they have a program called Touch-a-Truck. The kids can climb on any kind of truck you can think, school bus, police car, dump truck, ambulance, bomb squad truck, and even a HUGE monster truck! Lily went with her friend Norah and they loved it!

Lake Shafer

Last weekend was the annual Mark Family Reunion at Lake Shafer. Lily was excited to eat junk food, and ride the cars and boats.

Motorcycle riding with her cousin Nathan!
Playing in the rain with her cousins Nathan and Mikey.

Lily and Jack getting soaked!

Bridget hanging out in the backpack and loving every second of it!

Riding in the pink car, of course!

The racecar!

Taking a nap!
Tyler and I anticpated many hours hanging out in Kiddieland. We did start out there as you can tell from the pictures above. But Lily quickly graduated to the "big kid rides"! She rode the scrambler, sleds, log flume and her favorite The Dragon. The Dragon is a pretty big ride. I didn't dare go on it until I was at least 10!!! But our dare devil Lily, went on with her hands up! She would giggle the whole time! We tried putting her down for a nap. When we went to go check on her, she was just staring out the window at the rides. We rode rides until about 9:45! Lily literally rode rides until she passed out in her stroller! ha!
It was such a fun year because there were 8 kids under the age of 2 1/2! Lily still has her ride bracelet on. She says she's wearing it just it case she can ride the rides!

Happy Father's Day

We were making breakfast for Dad and I told Lily to bring Tyler his present. I asked her to tell him not to open it yet. She questioned, "What is it?" I said, "It's a Sox shirt, but DON'T tell Daddy!" I gave her the box, she ran outside and yelled, "Daddy, it's a Sox shirt, but don't open it." Tyler laughed for about 5 minutes!

8 Months Old

Yep, Bridget is 8 months old! She is soooo close to crawling. She takes baths with her big sister and loves to stick her tongue out. Bridgey is still so easy to take anywhere.

Busy, Busy

May was CRAZY! The end of the school year is always nuts. I was trying to juggle all the work at school, plus all the work at home, plus the two girlies. School is officially out. I "technically" don't work in the summer and Ty's hours are way cut back. Tyler also will have a new title next year, Director of Campus Life and Ministry. Basically, he is in charge of everything outside of the classroom...retreats, sports, clubs, etc.

We did manage to squeeze in a BBQ at the park with the Funk's. The pictures are above.

We're Back!

I am finally able to upload pictures again. Check back in the next couple days for some updates. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't download pics. Come to find out, the cord needs to be plugged in. Who knew?
