A Fun Day at Dutch Wonderland

Mark got free tickets to Dutch Wonderland so we took my nephew Micah and my sis-in-law Leah with us for the day. The boys had a great time! We were all very tired by the end of the day. Mj said his favorite thing was the Thomas show, the train ride and Duke's Lagoon. Enjoy the pics from the day!

Mj's 1st Soccer Game!

Mj had a great first game!! He got play defense, offense and be goalie!! We had some pretty good laughs watching a bunch of 5 year olds try to play soccer!! After the ball would go out the coaches would line everyone back to where they were supposed to be and then they all chase the ball!! The score was 2-2! Mj had 2 great saves as goalie! I think it's in his blood since he had 2 uncles who played goalie. I think he may follow their footsteps!! Enjoy the pics of his first game!

Painting and Floors

The painting is finished in the basement!!!  Mark just needed to paint the accent wall in the family room.  I love the color!  Mark has also started on the bathroom floor. He added heated flooring.  I'll be using the downstairs bathroom not!=)  He's working on adding the tiles as I type this.  Mark has all this week off so we're hoping to get alot done in the basement!!!  Can't wait for it to be finished!!!

Weekend Happenings

Well, on Saturday we had our church picnic. We had a fun time eating and fellowshipping! Mj's highlight was Mr. Gerards water balloon slingshot! It was a gorgeous day and the food was delicious!
On Sunday we had Jadyn dedicated. It was a special time of prayer for Jadyn and to remind our church family to pray for her and us as we raise her. Mj was asking about what happens at a dedication so I got his scrapbook out and showed him his dedication. We're so thankful for our church family who will uphold us, Mj and Jadyn in prayer!

Enjoy some pics of our weekend.

Mark's Surprise 30th Birthday Party

Mark had no idea what I was up to!! I wanted to celebrate his 30th birthday while everyone was home so on Saturday we had the party! Mark had no idea. Mark's friend Pierre came up from the DC area, too which was an added surprise for Mark. Dutch did a great job in getting Mark to the party. They needed to pick up cabinets for our basement and drop them off at the office and we were all there ready to surprise him! Here are some pics from the fun day!

Paint in the Basement!

It's been awhile since we've worked on our basement, but it now has paint on the walls!!!! Mj enjoyed helping paint his own room. It's looking good and we're excited to have it finished!

Mj's 1st Soccer Practice

Yesterday was Mj's 1st soccer practice!  He was so excited to wear his new shin guards, use his new "sweet green" soccer ball, and drink from his new water bottle.  He learned how to dribble and trap and they even scrimmaged.  His first game is August 23!!  Their team color is gray and tomorrow they need to come to practice with an idea for a mascot and then they'll vote! Ha! That should be interesting!!!  Enjoy these pics from Mj's first practice!
