Cone Heads...

At Elijah's soccer practice today his coaches had them be "cone heads." They had to run across the field holding a cone on their head. It was so cute because they were laughing so hard they could barely do it. Elijah has a great pair of coaches this year. They all have so much fun. I took the picture with my phone so it is not the best quality.

Elijah Meets His Kindergarten Teacher...

Tonight was the open house for the Kindergartners. Elijah got to see his classroom and meet his teacher. We found out she goes to our church. She is a very nice lady. I think he is going to love school this year. I forgot to bring my camera so I had to take the pictures with my cell phone.

Georgia Vacation...Boating with the Smith's

Today the Smith's took us to the TN. river to go boating. It was a blast! Along the way we found a good half way point to stop and jump into the river. Thanks so much Smith's for an awesome boat ride and a great time! Afterwards we all headed to The Catfish house for dinner.

Our Georgia Vacation...

This year we decided to go to Cartersville, GA to visit Will's sister and family for our family vacation. They have a little guest house/cabin behind their home for us to stay in and they have a swimming pool to enjoy. We always have such a good time when we stay there. It was a long drive with the kids. It took about 9 hours to get there. We were so tired of being in the car. The photo is of Will just having some quiet time in the cabin.

"All Yankeed Up"

On the weekends the kids and Will like to wear their Yankees gear and usually watch a game (if it is airing on TV). They always look forward to it and they chant "we're in the club!" once they get their jerseys and such on. You have to wear Yankees paraphernalia to be in the club :)

Adrielle's 1st soccer practice...

Adrielle had her first soccer practice tonight. Almost all of the girls were crying at first including Adrie but she soon warmed up and realized I was not leaving and that soccer was fun. She was all smiles at the end of practice. She looks so cute out there playing. I think she is going to be really good at this! She is such a fast runner! Ezra really wanted to play too. It was really hard keeping him off the field. Doesn't he look like such the multi-tasker?

Our Anniversary....7 years!

Today Will and I celebrated our 7 th Anniversary! It really is tomorrow but today worked out better for us to celebrate. Aunt Sarah (my sister) came over today and watched the kids for us and we went to the Art museum (something we have always wanted to do) and then we went to the Claddagh Irish Pub afterwards for dinner. The picture is of Will on the way to the museum. We even took out the mustang tonight. We had a good time. Then after we ate we decided to go grocery exciting huh? But is was very enjoyable to go with out the kids. Happy Anniversary Will! I love you!

Roo a tiger!

Today I was helping Adrielle and Elijah clean their rooms when I noticed it was awfully quiet. That usually means that Roo is up to something mischievous. When I went to check on him this is what I found....
When I asked him what he was doing, he said "Roo a tiger." You can tell by the look on his face that he knew he was in trouble. Luckily he used the washable markers. I couldn't get the pictures to turn the right way...sorry!

Canoeing on the Little Miami...

Today we all decided to take a canoe trip on the little miami river. This is something we had talked about for a long time but have never done. It was not as warm as we could have hoped for but it was still lots of fun! Thanks for visiting May family! We love to have you come to Ohio each year and can't wait till your next visit!

About halfway, we took a snack break and that is when Will decided to be brave and jump off the tree into the water...and it was freezing! He is so brave :) It was a lot higher than it looks!

4th of July 2009...

The May's came to our house after staying with Troy and Sarah and we went to a local high school parking lot to watch fireworks. We all had to watch from inside our cars since it was still raining. We brought some sparklers for the kids too, but had a really hard time getting the matches lit in the rain, so we only did a few. Even though the weather wasn't cooperating with us, we still had a great time!

Reds Game and Fireworks...

The May family came into town today for the weekend. They stayed with Sarah and Troy the first night. We all met at Sarah and Troy's house tonight then we all went to the Red's game. Aunt Sarah got us tickets to the sold out game. Will stayed home with Ezra because we didn't think he'd make it through the game and fireworks afterwards. We had a great time. Thanks Sarah for getting us the tickets! The fireworks afterwards were some of the best we've ever seen. Elijah and Adrie had so much fun with their cousins :)
