Church Picnic

Tonight was our church picnic and Britton had such a great time!
He loved playing ball.

Mitchell played football with him for a little while.
Britton stopped to take a little bit of food.

And went back to play again!
He loves Mary Catherine!

Then Britton decided to try and ride the frisbee down the hill!
We had a great night outside!

First Time Swimming!

Tonight was the first time Britton went swimming this year.
It took him a little while to get in but then he loved it!

He even started just jumping in!
Baby Jordan and Britton were just having a little competition, they just kept jumping in!
The pool was freezing though!
While they all enjoyed talking,

Britton's lips turned blue!
It was time to get out of the pool!

After swimming, we had ice cream sundaes and Oma gave Britton....
Britton loves baby Jordan!

Some Old Pictures

My parents went to Holland last year and took this picture for me!
Also, a few months ago, we found out that Britton really likes chocolate chip mint ice cream!
He loved it!

Youth VBS Outreach

We blew up tons of balloons tonight for a VBS outreach.
Britton was so excited to play with all the balloons and the youth. He really liked to let go of the balloon and watch Trace get it!
We went to various neighborhoods and invited the kids to our VBS.
We were hoping Trace would fly away!
The kids did a great job.
We're hoping for too many kids!

Our 6th Anniversary

We celebrated our 6th anniversary with a date to the Melting Pot. Every year since we got married, we've celebrated there. We love that restaurant but we really enjoy spending some time together. We took the whole afternoon for ourselves; it's always strange to be away from Britton but it was nice to spend some "quiet time" together.

These past few years have flown by. It's hard to believe that it's been 6 years already (and 7 houses! - including rentals and in between places to stay). It'll be interesting to see what these next years bring!

A Beautiful Day

It was a beautiful day today so we headed outside to go walking.
Britton decided he wanted to wear his sunglasses like mama!
He still absolutely loves his car.

This is one of Britton's many falls caught on camera!

We went to Panera to eat and Britton was acting really silly!
He heard a police car outside!

Shelby's Softball Game

Tonight we went to see Shelby play softball.
Britton loved watching ball!
His new word is "Shelby", he loves her!
Shelby's team played really well, they came back from a 12 to 4 lead and almost won, it ended up being their only loss this far of the season.
She hit a double at bat this time!
I shouldn't say Shelby is Britton's new word, because he copies everything we say! I think he has at least 10-20 new words a day!

Will also had a game tonight but it was in a different location. When he made it to Shelby's game, Britton had to show him his new boo boo. He hit himself in the eye with a stick!
Will did win his game!
