My birthday weekend

My birthday weekend was quiet, which was a good for turning 31. My mom spent the day with me on Friday. Us ladies and girls spent a good part of the day outside in the sunshine.

Later in the day, we enjoyed a quiet adults only dinner:)

And Saturday we went out on the boat and finished the day with ice cream at the Dream Hut.

I am so thankful for my husband who loves me so unconditionally, 3 healthy girls and 2 wonderful parents who love me and each other. I am so blessed and looking forward to the days ahead.

Four months

I love this girl!

She loves her hand and sucking her thumb. I am so thankful she is a self soother. She has slept through the night a couple of times but several colds keep interrupting her sleep. She is talkative, quick to smile and a big time Momma's girl.

Out on Grandpa's boat

For Grandma Angie's birthday, we took the boat on the Illinois River. All 3 girls enjoyed the adventure, a first for my younger two. The last time the boat was running and water worthy was when Abigail was 3.5 months old (Tabitha's age!). We were all grateful that Daddy and Grandpa are so handy with tools (and bleach!! it needed cleaning...) to get the boat ready for a new season of adventures.

very happy girls with their daddy. Having a boat is so much fun!

Where is Tabitha?

There she is!

Loving the swing after our picnic lunch.

Grandpa's Turn!


Being "in" the water is even more fun!

And helping drive the boat is even more fun than helping drive the tractor at home.
