June 12-15: The Farm

We spent the weekend (three nights) up at The Farm in western Maryland.  Lots of dirt, cousins, and memory making.  The kids had a blast wading through the creek, making a mess and playing with cousins.  All of my six siblings were represented at some point over the weekend (not all at once though).  We all enjoyed our time and Carolina repeated over and over the last morning "Not want to go home!" was very nice to go home to all the comforts we take for granted.  Hot showers, dishwasher, washer & dryer, lights, nice comfy beds, etc.



Ben's really hoping for a southpaw and things are looking good. :)

Uncle Rick's home after a year in Afghanistan.  Then back to Colorado, then Texas and on to Hawaii for a few years.

June 6: Jake's Baby Blessing

My little nephew Jake was blessed by his father Jim.  Lots of family at church and then lots of family at his house for a cookout.  My brother Rick just bought a new fancy schmancy camera (just a little bit jealous).  Kind of cool.  

Here's the baby with his maternal great-grandfather.  

I'm glaring at Rick because he dared point the camera my direction with a mouthful.

Before & After shots

So Tim was in desperate need of a haircut. Desperate. I had trimmed up the sides a couple weeks back, but that was as far as we got. Ben said we ought to take it all off, but I was definitely apprehensive. He's always had at least a little, sometimes a lot, of length. He's also got a little harry potter dent/scar in his forehead from a fall down my parents' stairs when he was 18 months old that I didn't mind covering. Anyway, it's done. And I surprised myself by actually liking it. Big change and I figured now was the time. It will be nice and cool for summer and can grow before kindergarten in the fall.
