Four months already!?

Riley is talking, wiggling, laughing, and slobbering. i imagine that he'll have a tooth by next month. his hair fell out on the sides, but just this morning i noticed that it is coming back in. he is 15 pounds and 25.5 inches long. he has his brother and sister beat in height at this age. we witnessed him roll over one time from back to front, but not again since then.

it is hard to believe that this little boy (who was just a thought in my round belly a few months ago) is this bright eyed, smiley kid! he's even too big for his bed now. i guess that means he can't sleep in the kitchen anymore AND he'll have to share a room with his bro.... i wonder how that will go?

wedding =

3 states, 3 days, 3 kids - 3 and under!

Crazy times, but really fun. our friends, rachael and matt, were married this weekend in St. Francisville, LA. allie has been talking about being the flower girl for months. she was excited to toss the flowers in a line! caleb has said from the beginning that he doesn't want anything to do with a wedding.

this is caleb on the party barge to the rehearsal dinner. his favorite part of the weekend!

here is the day of the wedding... i managed to get one pic of the kids together!

in the end, allie cried all the way down the aisle and caleb walked with a huge smile to the front and yelled "i want a white one!" (in reference to the jelly bellies that were waiting for him).

i don't have pics, but it should be noted that we stayed in a hotel that evening and the kids thought it was the absolute, best treat! caleb kept asking if we were at mcdonalds??? HAAA! it must have been that fun!

i'm not going to lie... snowcones are a HUGE summer treat... it makes my mouth just water thinkin' about one.

however, on wednesday we tried a new snowcone joint. it gets one star. lance and i laughed the whole time b/c we paid $8 for colored water! HA! oh, well, we had fun just being together!

blueberry hill

the kiddos, christa, and i took a trip to blueberry hill farm in edom this week.riley was probably the least excited about it.

caleb was thrilled to pick and just tried to keep up with his big sister.
allie only had about 10 blueberries in her basket when she was finished. i then realized that she was eating them all... sorry blueberry hill... we had a little chat about paying for things before you eat them.

time flies

when you're having fun!!! This summer is moving so fast. i can not believe how bad i have been at keeping everyone updated on life. here is a list of updates:

our staff are doing a terrific job of loving on kiddos and keeping them safe!

our nanny, christa, is making life so much more enjoyable while daddy is busy. we are blessed to have her!

lance is just beginning to get some much needed down time. we've gone on two dates recently and he is out with the two older kids right now. if he has been bad at calling... forgive him! he's tired!

i'm loving teaching a weekly bible study and enjoy the time with our girl staff. the summer is wild, but so rewarding! we are done with swim lessons.... what a fun process to watch!

allie has become a great little swimmer. we go swimming four to five times a week and she loves to show EVERYONE her new skills!

caleb is in his two year old phase... an angel one moment and NOT the next! HA. right now he has a new spiky hair cut and black eye which both contribute to his "bad kid" look! he's swimming too - you can see his "push the water back" arms in this pic.

here is a pic of the kids cheering on their friend maggie while she practiced! SOOO CUTE!

Riley is still fabulous! he eats five times a day, takes two great naps, and sleeps through the night! we could not ask for a better baby!

i had to throw in this pic... it wraps up how all of us are feeling! we work hard all day and then fall into our beds!

please continue to pray for PC and the work the Lord is doing here! our love to everyone!
