Randomness!

A few weeks ago we had a special visit from my younger sister Jillian AND her husband Josh! Jillian comes often to visit, but it was extra special to have Josh with her. He works 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off so there are many times when we are home and barely get to see him. This was a treat! The boys sure had a blast wrestling him and playing with his iPad. They are about to become parents in August to a little boy, Noah, so he was getting plenty of boy practice:-)

Little Everett playing with his toys! I have been enjoying Everett so much lately. Not sure if it is because he is our last baby, or that with Austin I was overwhelmed with deployment and wasn't able to truly enjoy his baby-hood, or that Everett is such a chill baby, or that I just adore him! Not sure what color his eyes will be, they are pretty dark though!

Baby Noah was making the cars move on her belly, and Logan was laughing so hard when they would get kicked off! Already cousin friends!

Wrestling as usual! 2 Ironman's up agains the Uncle:-)

I thought this was pretty funny, she was resting him on her belly. So cute! She is going to be an amazing momma. She is an incredible Auntie to my boys!

Our spirited child. Not sure where he came from, but he is so independent, so willful, and so edible! Just when we are fed up with him, he does something so cute and adorable that both Mike and I's hearts melt.

We went to the beach a few times with Jill and Josh and there was an area with some wading water. Here is what my boys did...I can't imagine how nasty the water probably was...good thing for baths!

Nice shot Jillian! Having a good ol' time

Oh my word...could I be any more in love with this little face! So excited to see what kind of little boy he will be. Ironman or superman, artist or cook, legos or blocks?

These next few pictures are from several weeks ago when we went to a state park. We didn't realize that we had to walk 3 miles with no shade to get to the park, so we just hung out at the beach near-by. The boys climbed the sand-dunes and waded in the water. There was this crazy mist that kept going down the beach...eerie and yet very serene!

Here I caught Mike in mid-jump!

Austin's turn!

Logan's turn!

So much sand in his bum after this!

See the eerie mist in the back ground? They are looking at crabs. At one point we look at Austin walking behind us, sticking his whole arm down one of the crab holes...guess he will learn someday!

Here is typical mom...carrying Everett in the Beco, getting a cute kiss from Austin.

That one picture of Everett (the close up when he's sitting up) is amazing. He's changing so much already. Loved all of these.

How great that they were able to come for a visit...and get some boy time in.

How fun! Great photos. Glad your sister & brother inlaw came to visit. Sounds like you all have had a great Summer so far.

I finally have some time to comment. I love the pictures of your little boys. Everett is looking so much like both Logan and Austin. And watching that video of Everett laughing just gave me major baby fever. :-)
