Easton is the cutest little boy we know! He rightfully earned the nickname 'BEASTY' when he was a baby and it has stuck with him. He is such a sweet little mommy's boy and we are ALL at his Beck and call. Easton loves cars, snacks, and playing outside. He is talking up a storm and it seems like he learns something new every single day. He is at such a fun age. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this little guy!


Ainslee is the baby and she just turned ONE!! This child is a handful!!! She hasn't quite grown out of the difficult phase.....that she has been in since she was born, but we still find ways to find her sweet side! Hearing her baby giggles and watching her discover & learn new things make all the whininess......just a little easier to deal with. Aaaahhh, we love this Ainslee Girl!!


Oh our cute little Avery! With her blue eyes & blonde hair, she is one of the cutest 4 year olds around!! This girl is stubborn! She definitely keeps us on our toes. She is quite unpredictable, which makes for a lot of laughs! Avery is our TREAT-FREAK! We can always guess what is on her mind. My favorite thing about Avery is her smiles. She always has one for us no matter what and that makes everyones day just a little better. She attends preschool and says she doesn't like it, but secretly we know she does ;). We are so lucky to have this cute girl in our family! We can't get enough of her.

Kobe is our first child, born in 2004. He was 4 months early and weighed a whopping 1 lb. 4 oz.! We got to be with Kobe for 4 wonderful weeks. I feel so blessed to have been chosen to raise one of God's perfect children. We love him and thank Heavenly Father everyday that he is part of our family. We have a treasure in heaven.

Quinnie just turned 6! She is growing faster than we can keep up with! She loves going to first grade and is doing really well! She picks up on things very quickly and LOVES learning. She's seriously a sponge. Her favorite thing to do is write notes and draw pictures for her friends & family. You should see our continual stack of papers. Quinnlyn is creative & spunky & totally independant. We love her like crazy!

America's Favorite Past-time.....

The other day we drove to Cincinnati, OH to go to a REDS VS. DODGERS Baseball game. It took about 1 1/2 hours to get there which wasn't too bad. And the drive was really pretty....with so many TREES!!!! It would be a great drive to take during the Autumn months when the leaves are changing colors.

Anyway, Brett won our tickets off a radio station out here so we didn't have to pay for anything. We also had 3 other couples come so it was a little party. We had $22 dollar tickets so we sat on the first 'upper level' in the front row, which were great seats except for the fact that no foul balls made it up to that side. The girls had a great time eating COTTON CANDY & SNO CONES, & I even enjoyed watching the game. I am not a big sports fan, but it was fun to experience the excitement of a major league game....and if I had to pick a sport to watch, it would definitely be baseball. It's one of the easier sports to follow :).

The REDS ended up winning (much to Brett's dismay....since he is more of a dodgers fan), but after being there for 4 hours, I was just glad that someone FINALLY won!!! It was Fireworks Friday, so after the game, they had a 20 minute firework show that the girls really enjoyed (and so did the rest of us).

(Notice Avery in the left corner trying to fit into the picture with her "funny face")

And at 11:30 P.M, we were on our way home. It started raining soon after we got on the road, so we were glad to have missed getting soaked at the game!! The girls quickly fell asleep & we got home @ 1:00.

So that was our fun adventure last week. It's a good thing Brett & I have good luck finding free stuff, because otherwise we would probably never do anything fun!
