Lake Claiborne

 We went to Homer, Louisiana this weekend to visit with my friends Leslie and Danielle and their families. We had the absolute best time! We rode jet skis, jumped and played in the water, rode on the boat, ate some really great food, and just had so much fun.

Normally, Jonathan does not pose for pictures because I usually try to capture moments with my phone, and he always wants my phone. Well, I got smart and brought my camera, and he was posing all over the place.

 We visited Gran and Poppy before coming to the lakehouse, and Gran got Benjamin and Jonathan these matching robot shirts and matching dinosaur shirts. They love them!

 Benjamin had a great time riding on the tube with Makenzie. He might like her a little too :)
 Here are all the girls! Mackenzie, Isabella and Brooke. Aren't they adorable?
 Riding on the boat was so fun. But Benjamin would always ask to go back to the house so he could jump off the pier. And boy, did we jump! I realize I'm old and it's not that fun for me. But Benjamin poked his lip out and said, "But Mom, don't you want to jump?" And of course, I did.

 Jonathan had a hard day at ... play? Anyways, he was tired and fell asleep while riding the jet ski.

Farewell, until next year!

Favorite things

So Benjamin loves to help me cook. He always asks if he can help. The other day he even asked if he could go help his daddy work in the yard. Even though the willingness will not last forever, it's nice to have a little helper. Mary bought Benjamin a Spiderman shirt this week. And it is his new favorite thing to wear - he hardly takes it off. Benjamin's favorite thing to do is change clothes, like eight times a day. He changes his clothes in the middle of the night. Looking in the bright side, it's takes less time in the morning to get ready since he's already in daytime clothes.
Jonathan is crazier than ever - he throws his food (which isn't a new thing,) throws toys, throws temper tantrums and spits milk everywhere. He's quite a handful. He's talking more and more - his latest is "more cookie." I know that's hard to imagine :)
We're on our way to Gran and Poppy's right now. Benjamin keeps telling us we missed it, and we keep saying, "no, we didn't - it's just really far!"

Happy 4th of July!

Long time no see!

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted pictures! Here are some from the last couple months. We've been staying busy of course. The boys are as fun as ever. Jonathan is talking a lot more - his favorite word is "car." I can't figure out why (maybe it's because they watch "Cars 2" a lot!) Benjamin has memorized his first Bible verse, which I think is awesome! We say Joshua 1:9 every night after we pray - "Be strong and courageous..." We'll be going to the 4th of July parade tomorrow, so hopefully more pictures to come real soon!
