Happy 4th Birthday Tyler

Wow...I can't believe that Tyler is already 4 years old. How time has flown by, and now we have three beautiful children. I can't believe it. Tyler sure is a big boy. He is a wonderful young man. And yes I mean man. He can't wait to grow up and be just like his dad. He wants to have more arm hair and leg hair. He was so excited the other day when he noticed that he has a small amount, one step closer to being like dad. He stepped on the scale this morning and wanted the weight indicator to move all the way to the other side. He asked me "when I get big like daddy will it move all the way to the other side?" I laughed and said, "yes when you get big like daddy you will weigh a lot too!" It's really neat to see him be so in love with his dad. Tyler is such a caring boy, he is always helping me with JJ and Emilee. He's so tender and sweet. But he's a boy boy as well. Playing basketball and rough-housing non stop, getting dirty and eating his boogers (which we're trying to stop). It's really neat to stop sit back and observe the changes that have taken place in his life. It's so neat to see how his mind work and that he understands so much, and can comprehend as well. Tyler, we love you so much and are so proud of you. We have had so much fun being your mom and dad, and are excited to continue to watch you grow and see where God takes you. Our prayer for you and your bother and sister is that you would grow to be passionate about God, and your life would be one that oozes with love for Him. Love you sweetheart!We had a little BBQ with some friends, and Tyler got a couple of things. We celebrated his birthday back when my family was here with Brennen. Chris and I gave him and JJ a new really cool basketball net. He also got a really cool Mack from Grammy and Papa and Uncle B.

We're back sorry for the lack of blogging. We have been slacking, and super busy. Our dear friends Nathan and Kerri were married on June 30th...(Brennen's 13th b-day...Happy birthday buddy). Chris performed the ceremony and was the MC as well. I had the pleasure of making the cake, which turned out great. And tasted great as well. After the business of the wedding we packed and headed to Keats Camp where Chris was speaking for the week. We had a fabulous week. We are tired and ready to be home, but had a great time.

Here we are all dolled up
Here's Ty and I aboard the Brittania on the way to camp
Chris and Ty on the Brittania
Here are our boys...they had so much fun on the boat ride to Keats Island
This is the dining hall at Keats
Here are the boys, we were trying to entice JJ into peeing (not in his diaper) off the porch of the cabin we were staying in.
We are a really cool ski boat for a ride
Here is one of bald eagles that we saw on a number of occations.
JJ and Tyler had fun playing in a kiddy pool. They had more fun dumping dirt into the pool than slashing and getting wet.
This tyler's bed in the cabin, each night we read a bible story and the boys love to cuddle their little sweetheart before bed.
This is Tyler and Chris moments before jumping off a 25 feet dock into the ocean. Chris jumped a couple of times, and Tyler was all set to go but the life guards wouldn't let him, because his life jacket could choke him. He was so brave and jumped at a lower level.
This is the wall that free willy jumped, they filmed a lot of the movie across from the camp at Gibsons
My boys talked me into rock I did.
Here is Chris speaking at church on the Island...the whole island comes to the camp for church outside on Sundays during the summer. Chris did a great job.
We meant to get a family picture outside our cabin, but this is as close as we got.
On the way home. It was a very rough ride. The boys were so tired, and the waves were causing the boat to rock, I almost lost it.
