Yes, it really has been that long

Sometimes I find myself wishing time away. Waiting for the next milestone such as, No More Diapers or All Day Kindergarten. But then I have moments like these and I wish I could just bottle up my kids and keep them babies forever. Because I'm sure going to miss this.



Kyle is the happiest baby ever. He is perfect. I call him my Ray of Sunshine because holding him literally makes me happier. I don't know what I would do without this little guy :)

Ryan showing Aunt Stephanie where to go next at the zoo. Even though he was reading it upside down he still managed to lead us along!





I love my sassy girl.


And my CRAZY girl.





And my forever pantless boy, thanks to potty training.



Cliff jumping at Sauble Falls


love him.



She's not sure what she thinks about Cole blowing out her candles. Well someone had to do it, we waited about 2 minutes while she just sat there staring!


Macey thinks she looks like a pirate when she makes this face.



But I think she looks like an angel when she makes this face!





This was my BIG catch at Chesley Lake. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. I must've caught the smallest bass in the lake... a minnow.

Here Ryan is expressing his utter disappointment. He caught 22 fish so we were able to have a fish fry. He told me I should practice and then maybe I would be as good as him. You might have to zoom in but the fish really is there :)



Experienced parents out there....do they EVER stop fighting?




First morning at Chesley! I love how happy they are in this picture.




Ryan had a little more luck with the Barbie fishing pole.





The kids and Scott at Presque Isle. I don't know the formal definition of joy...but this has to be pretty close.




I'm going to miss his little baby frog legs



Playing some more at Presque Isle

He has the sweetest face




Movie night with the cousins!




She could eat a whole watermelon by herself!




The kids really like giving their toys to Kyle...in this instance it was obviously Macey!


Ahhh! I can't get over how much I love this feisty little stinker!








Welcome to life after baby #3....Yes Ryan really is wearing a princess pull-up (but now he is potty trained woohoo!)...while diving off the couch cushions...while playing the ipod...in a filthy house...while I stand idly by taking pictures. Life is good.



I found Macey...but not before she found the ice cream cake darn it.













Like I said...life is good. And so CRAZY!

Love the post, I am so glad to see pictures of your kiddo's. I seriously can't believe that is Macey, she looks so much older than I saw her last, its amazing how fast they grow. She is so adorable, and Ryan and Kyle are 2 good looking boys, can you believe Kyle and Delaney are over 3 months now, its so crazy...I can't wait to see him in person!! Lets get together soon. Loved the little fish you caught, I was cracking up, sounds like Ryan can teach you a few lessons lol...Life is crazy in our house too with 3 little ones, but oh so fun...and as far as the question about do they ever stop fighting, Daniel is 12 and Natilie is 10 and they constantly pick and fight with eachother, they can't seem to leave eachother alone for 10 mins, but I have been told when they get into high school it will get better...you probably didn't want to hear that did ya?? lol...
