Lovin' Summertime

Life is good here!  We have been LOVING the summertime weather, and literally living outside as much as possible.  I ABSOLUTELY could not be happier and constantly feel so blessed for the 3 amazing kiddos God has given me and the time I get to spend with them.  I want to hold onto each moment and freeze time.  I'm  lovin' my  Larkyn cuddles, Colton giggles, and conversations with my Summer - I am one lucky Momma :).

Big brother Colton is definitely warming up to his little sister!

First trip to the zoo with 3 kiddos!

Larkyn slept most of the time :)

We got to see the outdoor bird show for the first time this year!

The kids got trading cards with their favorite bird - Coconut - who talks :)

Sweet Larkyn

Napping with Mommy

Another adorable sleepy Larkyn

Larkyn just goes with the flo - sleeping in her carseat on the move with her big brother and sister :)

Sweet Colton loving up on his sister

He can make her stop crying!


We have been having such fun with these three - Hannah and Melanie are both 5 months older than my two, and baby Carter is only 1 day younger than Larkyn!

S and C checking out a new park on a date with friends Jessi, Hannah, Melanie, and Carter

After seeing a community puppet show at a local park Summer wanted to make her own puppets


Making Puppets!


Tummy time!

This past weekend, Paul ran the Tough Mudder race in Wisconsin with a group of guys from church.  Tough Mudder is a 10 mile obstacle race.  He had a blast!


The group :)

Love this pic of Summer and Larkyn!

Trying out the triple jogger!

Everyone fits!

My view :)

On our favorite lake path - headed to the park!

Playdate with Faith, Noelle, and Lilah

Larkyn slept through the playdate :)

More friends!  Playdate with friends Addison, Brody, Tenley, Adry, and Rylan

Time to catch some rays ;)

Freezie Pop Time!

Tenley and Larkyn (both "3rd" kids)

Love this shot - my view of S and C from the patio - they play so nicely together!

Love these two :)

 Here are a few videos...

Larkyn 3 weeks:

Larkyn first tub bath (2 weeks) (She didn't love it at first, but now she likes it a lot more!)

Tummy Time with Larkyn

Colton and Larkyn -
(Side Note: Summer holds Larkyn for me quite a bit, and will go put her pacifier in if she is crying.  She is SUCH a great big sister and really cares for Larkyn and helps out a TON!  Colton this past week just started loving on Larkyn in such a sweet way that I caught this video of him trying to soothe her...)

All such wonderful pictures and videos. I love how Colton tells Larkyn, "It's okay." Sweet.

Love the updates! Larkyn is so sweet and looks like both kids are loving their biggest sister/big brother roles. :)
