Memorial Weekend

Savanah and Caleb's last day of school was last Friday. Caleb, unfortunately, was sick and missed it! And Savanah, luckily, wasn't.

(Last day of school)

When I picked her up from school she tried really hard not to cry, but couldn't help it. She was so sad school has ended. She LOVES it. She has even told Beau and I, "When I am president, I am going to make school longer, and everyday!" (We have no clue where she came from.)

Saturday, we went up into the hills with our friends, the Church's and Lovell's, for a day camp. We roasted hot dogs, marshmallows, hiked, played, talked, made tin foil dinners, ate dutch oven cobbler, and just enjoyed the beauty that surrounded us!

It was a perfect day. And we found the perfect spot!
(To see some of the nature pictures, click here!)

We also planted our garden over the weekend, (Better late than never, right?) played at the park, and had a bbq with friends.





This is the first year Beau had Memorial Day off. So it was so nice to have a long weekend with him!

~On a side note~

Kennedy said to me, one day when she was mad at me, in a mean voice "Mom you are skinny!"
When I replied "Thanks."
She quickly added "Just like Santa Clause!"

I seriously laughed. How could you not. How does a three year old come up with these things?



And here are some pictures of Sweet Baby Luke .
We can't believe he is almost 6 weeks old already!
He is such a good and content baby. He smiles all the time, hardly ever cries, eats a lot, sleeps a lot, and is such a chunk. He has lost most of his hair on the top half of his head (He takes after his grandpa's..hahaha) but still has tons in the back!


And that folks, is what we have been up to!

Looks like you guys had a good weekend. I'm not sure how I would have taken the Santa comment, but funny, none the less. I know it sounds crazy, but if you shave the babies hair, it will grow back super fast, and it wont fall out when he rubs it. Trust me, I'm two for two this way. Just a thought.

Wow, I can't believe your babe is already 6 weeks old! Where had the time gone!!! We are on the count down! I'm not actually due until the 22nd of June, but I went to the doctor on Tuesday and I'm a 5. He was shocked I wasn't in full on labor! So, we are just waiting, he says it should be anytime!

Hey--how'd you do that cool link thing at the bottom?

Oh no you ditn't say "folks."

The pictures are beautiful, and Lukas looks so cute, even without the front of his hair. I can't wait till we make friends we can go day camping with.
