Happy 29th Birthday Susie!

Happy Birthday! Love you!!!

Easter 09'

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday. Good food, good company and good times. All these kiddos bring so much joy to our lives. We're so lucky!!!

Can you tell we love our daddy?

Look how great my mom looks. That is one hot mama!

Aubrey and Miles!


Zach loves his grandma.

Great Wolf Lodge

Back in February we got a good deal on a family suite at Great Wolf Lodge and since we had no plans for spring break we thought it would be the perfect time to go. That and the fact that outdoor soccer games start this weekend and run through June;)

Brad had a great time chillaxing!

Zach on one of the rides. Man do we love those water slides:)

Zach's friend Adam came along. He is much nicer for the camera than my son!
Alli was all bruised up and exhausted by Saturday!

Brad and the Easter bunnies according to him!

A semi smile for the camera!

Brad the big kid hanging with the little kids.

The goof troop. Each of the kids brought a friend along for the fun. So it was mom and dad vs. 4 kids. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back again someday!

Spring Break 09'...

Haven't you heard we're in a recession. Therefore most of our Spring Break was spent at home. On Wednesday the weather finally got nice enough that we spent the day at the park. The kids had a blast and I was so glad to see some of that bottled up energy getting released;-)

A rare moment...lately there hasn't been a lot of love between the two of them.

Isn't she cute??

My climbing boy! Love this kid:-)

I love this picture of Syd climbing over the chain wall. Such concentration.

Little Miss Aubrey and her new smile for the camera. She's so much like her momma!

My new park friend...John.
Gage...he's such a sweetie!

Another one of Syd that I just love!!!
Zach and the Spring sky!

Well long time no blogging!

So it looks like I've been MIA for awhile. Life has been busy.

The last time I posted was right after Brad and Zach's accident. I'm happy to report that they didn't have an ache or pain from it. Thank god! The insurance company ended up totalling the truck....surprise! It ended moving quickly and within a week Brad had a new baby to take care of. I think he's very happy that winter is over;-)

Allison just finished up her indoor soccer season and that girl is all about soccer. It definetly is a passion of hers. I think she'd play everyday if she could. Alli's coach knows she's ready to play when she has her headband on;-)

Mr. Zach has had a lot going on since the accident. His teacher decided to retire in Jan. We knew that she was retiring in June but were very surprised about her early retirement. Zach really liked Mrs. Wolfgram a lot and loved all the science she taught. After a little time he's adjusted to his new teacher Mrs. Hurda and loves school again;-)

Zach is just like his dad and loves anything to do with hunting. Especially shooting archery. This has been his best year yet and he's very proud!! He started shooting when he was 3.5 yrs. old and has been aiming at that goal of a trophy for some time. This year he did it. Now we need to get the shelf up to display it:-)

St. Patrick's Day this year was sad for our family. Brad's grandma Ruth died after a three week battle with larynx cancer. She died surrounded by love, just the way she wanted.

Well this spring has also brought another hunter in the family. My baby girl got to do her first turkey hunt. My 10yr old carried a 20 gauge. Can you say nervous mama?? This ended up being a wonderful experience for her. She got a turkey in 20 yard range and just missed it. Bummer! She loved it and will definetly do it again. Can you say gray hairs for her mom!

Posing with me. Yes the safety was on!!
This is one very happy dad!!
