Grant's Bike Ride

Guess who has a bike?? I DO!!! But instead of a PICTURE of the bike, you get a video of me pulling Grant! He LOVED it!! There were a lot of bugs, but if you don't stop, then they are not a problem. I am so excited to get into shape (so is Ben!) and have some fun family time.
Enjoy!!

Riley's Wedding

Riley got married last week! Hooray :) We got carried away with taking pictures of our family rather than the bride and groom, but it's ok- that's why they paid a photographer to do it, right? Enjoy some of my favorites!!
HI! We're are so happy to be here!!!!!!!! That's exactly what Grant's face says! Ok, Ben took this one. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

I love my husband. I don't even know who took this picture!! My mom is so pretty!!! And my son's head looks HUGE here! haha

Aren't we so pretty? jk We are such nerds.But these two... amazing! It makes me laugh every time I look at it. Ben and my
brother in law, Stephen, from England!
Little Laurel with Mom... beautiful :)

T-BALL and H2O

This week has been RAINING AND POURING! The clouds broke for a few hours, and we decided to play T-Ball. Then we played in the creek just behind the trees in the pictures. Grant had a great time!!

Guess what was more interesting than T-Ball? Sticks. Why do we even bother spending money on this child!?
Again with the sticks.
Ben teaching Grant how to hit the ball. Before he found the stick, he was only interested in chasing the ball. Ben will be patient as he continues to teach him how to play "ball!"
More of the Father and Son. Notice the ball caps... CHICAGO CUBS... and the matching outfits!
Here we are in the creek. Grant was more adventurous than me! The water wasn't even that cold. He was also more interested in picking up the mossy rocks. I think here, he sat in the water.
Cute picture of our feet. Mine, nice and slender, and Grant's, well- FAT. haha... Hopefully they'll thin out a little one day!
Here we are on the bridge over the creek. We LOVE Bloomington. Everyone should come visit us so we can all play!
Ahhh... back to the car. What a fun day! This is the first time Grant REMOTELY stayed on the path rather than running off on his own. I was VERY impressed. (Looking at this picture makes me realize that those sandals need to be retired!)

Picture of the Week

I love this picture. Grant and I went to Lake Bluff to spend the weekend with my family and his cousin for her birthday! We went to Chuck E Cheese!!!!! This is where we discovered that Grant LOVES pizza. I asked him to say "cheese," and this is what I got! haha... more pictures to come.
