Ryan had the afternoon off so we took the boys to the beach. Lake Maxincukee is about 20 minutes from our house. They had a blast splashing in the water all day and then playing on the playground. I love summer!

Poor baby

By the end of that day Mason couldn't even stay awake to eat his ice cream. I can't believe my baby will be 2 tomorrow. Sniffle sniffle.

It's the little things...

This is the kind of stuff I love. No reason, I just makes me smile when I come around the corner and there is an animal parade in my bathroom.

If I ever get a girl....

If I ever get a girl, I think I have a pretty
good idea what she'll look like.

Father's Day Fun

All the Bales boys went on a train ride for Father's Day, so much fun. We saw a deer and a muskrat and lots of tractors. Jamie and Quinn, Ryan and Mason, Grandpa Dave and Nolan. So handsome!!! Ryan has been extremely busy this summer with Basketball and of course, the always scary Driver's Ed. but he always manages to spend every free moment with us and pack in lots of fun. The boys start running and screaming when they hear him unlock the door everyday, I couldn't ask for a better husband and father to our children! I love you.

Another Girl!

So, I think it's the season for girls. The Bales family, Ryan's brother and his wife added the first ever Bales girl. That's right, the first. Ryan and Jamie have only one female cousin and she was adopted. Then we had two boys and Jamie and Amy had a boy, so we were beginning to think it simply wouldn't happen. Kylee is a healthy 7lbs. and we love her! Congratulations, Jamie and Amy. You should get an award or something!

Nolan's first fish

Nolan caught his first fish over Memorial Day Weekend. We were discussing if he got the connection between the fish that we caught and the fish fry we had in the evening. His first words after he caught it, "let's cut it up and eat it." I think he gets it...

Mason's favorite things...

Mason's favorite things are still his paci, blanket, and food. Lately he's been trying to have all three at once. These long summer days are too much for him, he rarely makes it through lunch.

Helmet Head

Nolan loves his new bike helmet. We've decided it's great too because every time he wrecks he says, "I'm okay, I have my helmet on" and gets back up, even if his knees are bloody.
