Father's Day

We had a really fun father's day and I thought this pic was too cute not to post!

Love our dads!  Addie even found a heart chip to prove it!

Visiting Jillian

We used to say we were headed to Cinci or going to visit Steve and Michelle.
There's a new star of the show now.
Now we visit Jilly.
We went in June right after school was out!

We went to the Cinci zoo, which I was super impressed with!

There's a cheetah show where they demonstrate how fast cheetahs run!
 And penguins!

You can brush their goats at the petting zoo

We had a great time!
Don't worry Jilly, we're coming back next month for your happy birthday!

Look who came into the world!

Welcome baby Matthew!
Our sweet friends Megan and Steve finally had their baby last weekend!
We met Matthew on our anniversary.  It was a beautiful way to remember all that God has blessed us with as families.

Can I get a little, WOW!  Megan looks amazing here?  Because she did!

Love you already!

Brave Sam

Sam started vacation wearing a floatie and having NEVER gone underwater.
He left jumping in, swimming under and having the time of his life.
Vacation is good for your courage.

The kids even found our sandcastle that night after dinner untouched!

Liv made this one all by herself!
Uncle Steve made Ellie a mermaid!

Our best castle...
Jillian really wanted to play in the sand too!  
She finally got to!

Florida Wildlife...

Apparently FL wildlife is abundant...
I mean look at these lizards we (Sam & Mommy) caught daily...
These sweet dolphins were in the canal behind our beach joke.

We saw this guy on our dolphin cruise!  Thanks again Nana!
And because we couldn't get enough we went to a Nature Park too!

Feeding Alligators!
And birds...So brave!

Sam found a parrot on his shoulder on the boardwalk... ;)

Mike saw a manatee in the canal too...and one on the cruise...I was not so lucky.  
We found lots of hermit crabs with our nets too.
Loving our animal fun...
