We had a great June -- here it is through pictures!
|Some silly time in the tunnel|
|We got a lot!|
|Afterwards, lunch at McDonalds|
Noah came home from school with a to-do list:
|Coloring in the tent|
The next day, Kylie had a birthday party to go to. They got to have their nails, toes and hair done at this party! What a treat.
|The birthday girl - Mehr|
|Kylie wasn't sure about getting her hair done|
|Mommy wasn't quite sure after it was done either! :-)|
|But cupcakes make everything better!|
|Kylie loves watermelon!|
|This is how movie night ended -- everyone was tired! Although, I think they were playing it up just a tad. :-)|
|Next year we'll have to get a better hat for Kylie!! :-)|
|The 4-5 age range horse race. Notice Noah and Ben's tongues both out! :-)|

|Tired at the end of the ride!|
The following weekend was fun - Saturday night we had a party to go to so that kids spent the night at the Sharpes house. They had a great time! The next day was Father's Day, so they brought the kids back to our house and Nana and Grandad came home to have a Father's Day celebration at our house. Noah and Kylie gave Waylon their homemade presents from school. :-)

One day the following week was Noah's field day. I loved being able to go and watch it since I was still out of work at the time. He had a blast.
This same week was the week everything changed for me. When I first got laid off, I had an interview (a few days after) but I didn't get the job. After about a month, I got a call to do some consulting work so I did one day of that and was planning to do that until I found something just to bring in some extra money. Two days after I did that for the first time, I got another interview and got the job! I was about to accept that job when the very first company called me back and asked me to meet them and gave me an offer on the spot! How crazy to go from no bites for a month and a half to three different opportunities! So we had some decisions to make and I ended up going with the first company I interviewed with right after I lost my job. I took an extra few weeks off since we already had a vacation planned for 4th of July week and I started on July 8th. I am so happy where I am now and know made the right choice!
|Cuties at dinner|
|Noah is started to get into legos - it's cute to see him concentrate so hard!|
That Friday, we went to the Zac Brown Band concert with the Rogers, Sus and Marshburns. What a fun time!
|I borrowed some cowboy boots for the occasion :-)|
|Silliness with Allen|
|The boys singing! :-)|
|Their pizzas before they went in the oven|
|Snuggles for Daddy/Uncle Waylon|
|Love this shot of Noah!|
On Sunday, we went to lunch and the kids threw coins in a fountain. Right after this picture, Kylie told me, 'I wished for Grammy and Papa!"
Sunday afternoon was a joint first birthday party for Jonah and Will. The kids played on the Rodriguez' big waterslide and had a blast.
|Cutie naked baby! :-)|
|Another dinner out with the Rodriguez the following week|
|The whole class|
|'First Grade First Grade' to the tune of 'New York New York' :-)|
|Our sweet boy!|
|A pool night that week|
Last day of Kindergarten at the bus stop that day!
|Kylie and I waiting to pick him up|
But first -- Saturday morning, we celebrated Waylon's birthday. The kids and I went to pick up doughnuts for him before he woke up.
Then Waylon and I went to lunch in Baltimore and for a tour of Camden Yards while my parents took the kids to a farm. What a nice day!
|Camden Yards and the birthday boy|
|We ran into my friend Sarah from middle school! I don't think we'd seen each other in 8 years!|
The kids had fun with Grammy and Papa too and got to ride a horse!
|Noah loved it!|
|Kylie wasn't sure :-)|
That night at the party, Leah and Bill told the kids that they are getting a new cousin. It was hard to keep the secret and I was so happy for everyone to know! :-)
|They didn't quite get it at first|
|Announcing to the crowd -- it's a GIRL! (check out Bill's face!) :-)|
|Dancing with my cousin, McCauley|
|The kids call Papa, 'the Teaserhead' He sure is! :-)|
Pictures from the lake week will come in the July update!! What a wonderful summer!!
