June Catch Up

There were a few cute pictures from before Ryan was born that never made it to the blog.  One morning, Jack was more cooperative (notice I said more cooperative - meaning not all the way, but more than normal) so I took advantage and took a few pictures.  At the time, he looked so huge and grown up, but looking back at this (almost 2 months ago), he has changed so much since then!
 And there was a day that Katie was at a friend's house or something and Jack and I were driving somewhere and I happened to see the train and quickly parked near where the train track is and stopped and grabbed Jack out and let him watch the train go by.  He didn't move a muscle - he was simply amazed!  And the smile on his face when the choo choo was gone and he realized what had just happened was just priceless.  Love those little moments!
And Father's Day - whew!  I almost forgot to do a post with details from that!  Not the best picture, but here is Daddy with his crew.  Even Sadie wanted to try to be in the picture!
 So cute - Daddy and Jack!
 And I happened to snap this picture at just the right time!  Brad had just opened his gifts and was giving Katie a smooch.. Love her face!
 It was a lot of creative gifts and then a gift certificate for a massage.  I love the 5 things I love about you from Katie and then the Jack handprint and Ryan footprint one!
 And I helped Katie to an "All About My Daddy" - hilarious!
And Father's Day happened to also by Jack's real birthday!  Thank goodness he was celebrated at his birthday party, because things were kind of a blur at this point!  We gave him his train table early.  And then his party was super fun.  And we had planned to let him open his gifts the day after his party - but then Ryan was born :) So we opted to wait until his real birthday!  And he had a blast ripping into all his goodies!
 Of course Katie wanted to get in there and help him rip into presents too - we had to remind her that she had recently been able to rip into her own gifts!
 Jack loved stopping to take a look at what each one of his gifts was.
 He got lots of things that go - perfect!
And then there were some random pictures.  We watched Planes and of course Jack had to have the Dusty Crophopper that Katie gave him for his birthday - love that he actually smiled!
 And then Katie got home from doing something fun and climbed in and they sat together to watch the rest of the movie.
 One weekend, the kids got outside and washed their backyard toys!  Ryan and I joined them outside for a little bit but had to come in because it was hot!  Jack loved splashing in the bubbly water!
 Miss Sassypants striking a pose :)
 And then they got to work!  They really did a super job!
 Proof that Ryan and I really were outside some of the time!
 Jack had to sit down and play with the flowers :)
 I can't get enough of this picture - Mr. Cool Dude in his shades...and sitting on the mulch with his juice box! What a mess!
 And here the kids are in bed to read a book before bedtime - all clean!  We did that for a little while when it was hard for me to get out of bed too much.  Thankfully that stage is over (as in the painful to move part)!
 And Tanja and Nick came to visit one day and they all piled onto one of the plasma cars!  I absolutely love this picture - can't believe they all fit and everyone was smiling at me!
Whew!  That sure was a lot of randomness, but I am determined to get caught up!  More to come :) But at least all of June is taken care - now that July is almost over! HA!
