What Have We Been Up Too?

 Going out for ice cream,
 growing out of new born clothing and into 0-3 month clothing,
 walking/riding to the grocery store,
 holding Ila,
 learning to juggle 3 children out-n-about,
 taking lady bugs for bike rides on our fingers,
 learning to ride a bike,
and spending lots of time relaxing and playing!

Happy Father's Day!

 Today for Father's Day we dedicated all 3 of our children at church.  Mark read 3 John 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. Many people from our community group came to the 9am service to show their love an support.  It's so nice to have that loving church family, we feel very blessed.  
There were about 7 families dedicating their little ones too.
Here are the girls before church. 
My mom came over and went to church with us. 
Here is Lulu ready to go to church.  She was so excited to get dedicated. 
After church we had a party at our house to celebrate the dedication and Father's day.
My dad Tom and my brother Todd.
Here is Mark talking with our friend Steve. 
We even got out the Jumbo-Ball.
Levi with his buddy Joshua. 
Carey, Abby and Becky are part of our community group from church. 
It was a great day and very special for us.  To have all that love and support from our family and our friends means so much.

Daddy/Daughter Date Night

 Yesterday I dropped Lulu off at Mark's office at 4pm.  They were going on a date.  Lulu put on her jewelry and got all pretty for her date.  She was so excited that she couldn't nap. 
 I gave the camera to Mark so he could get some pictures on their special date.  Here is Lulu in the beetle at Mark's office getting ready to head out.
 They even got front row parking at the restaurant Lulu picked out. 
Mark and Lulu got to have some nice time just talking.
 After dinner they played.
 Then they drove to another McDonald's and got milk shakes while they went for a little drive.  Part of the fun is getting to ride in the beetle.

One Month

 Today Ila is one month old.  She's still in newborn clothing and about 8lbs now and a wonderful baby.  She is so sweet.  She cries but not much.  She's starting to stay awake longer and watch her sister and brother.  We love her so much.  This picture above is truly her.  Happy and content.
Ila, this past month has been wonderful getting to know you.  We love you!

This weekend we had beautiful weather.  It was warm too.  So we got out our new slip-n-slide.  The video below is of Mark showing Lulu and Levi how a slip-n-slide works.  They were amazed and thought it was so fun.   

 My Aunt Linda bought the kids this huge red ball.  The really fun thing about it was that they climb in it and roll around.  It was very fun.  Thank you Aunt Linda!
 Ila enjoyed her naps outside.  She is so sweet, quiet and mellow.
