Time with friends

We have so many wonderful friends here in the US. It's hard to see them all and have enough time with everyone. This last week we have been able to connect with a number of wonderful people, so I've just added a few pictures....We've connected with many more than are shown here, but this is from the last couple of weeks. Bryan met up with College friends in LaCrosse.

My friend Nicole drove down from the Twin Cities to spend time with my while we were in LaCrosse.
We made a quick stop at Bethel Horizons to see the Ensrudes. Jack loved Dan becuase he gave him a tractor ride :o)
Nic, Rach and I spent a few days in the Dells hanging out with the babies and each other. Fun times!
breakfast time
Three little munchkins!!! (Jack isn't loving clothes these days :o)
Jack may not be into clothes, but he was into baby Katelyn! He loved her so much! Snuggling and touching her, and just wanting to be near her. She thought he was pretty great too :o) At one point he was yelling, "my baby, my baby." I don't think he understood when I told he she was actually Nicoles baby :o)

Texas visit

We returned last night from a wonderful visit to Texas to see Kyle, Sarah and the kids. Jack LOVED playing out in the backyard and playing with Calli and her toys. It was so fun to see little Lane and spend time with Sarah during the day. Kyle was working hard, but we were able to see him in the evenings. I am so thankful we were able to see them while we were back here and give Jack time with his cousins.

Splash Park in Texas!

We are in Hot Texas this week visiting Kyle, Sarah, Calli and Lane! So much fun!!! Here are the pictures from our Splash Park outing yesterday. Calli really had a blast and Jack wasn't so sure about the whole thing.

7 months

We took a few belly pictures this morning... Jack wasn't very happy about the idea, but we were able to get a couple of good ones before he was finished. I also got my 7th month shot of just me and belly.

finishing up in IA...

We head back to WI today to finish up Bryan's summer vacation. We've had a great week here, and will miss Grandma and Grandpa a lot. Jack has really enjoyed his time here, especially the park that is so close!
Opening an early birthday gift from Grandma and Grandpa.
Probably the highlight of his summer so far... driving the car cart at HyVee. I didn't do so well with this thing though, crashed into two isles during our shopping, it's a huge cart!!! :o)
We were able to spend an evening with our goof friends Paul and Laura and thier new baby Dorian. Really nice to catch up and Jack was in love with the baby.

family fun in IOWA

We've had a wonderful week in Iowa. Jack has loved getting out and playing in the yard and park and the weather was absolutely perfect this past week! Sunny, breezy and mid-80s! LOVE IT! Here's Jack hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa before all the cousins showed up.

Enjoying our small pool in the backyard. We also spent an afternoon at the local aquatic center, but those pictures are on our other camera and I don't have a reader for that card. It was a blast though and all the boys had fun.
We spent a lot of time out in the yard and at the local park, playing, playing, playing. Jack LOVED all the bigger boys and trying to keep up with them all.
The boy cousins! Jack, Taylor, Luke and Jack! Love them!
Playing with the fun toys at Grandmas... Fun seeing Jack play with the toys Bryan grew up playing with :o)
All the cousins. Luke, Taylor, Molly, Jack and Jace! Molly is hoping the new baby with be a girl so she's not the only girl next time we are all together.
Celebrating our birthdays (a bit late, but still fun!)
Luke "reading" a book to Jack.
Fireworks in downtown Des Moines.
Family picture taken before church this morning.
