What do you do with a Saturday morning?

A new trick at the dinner table:

The other morning, Julia woke up at O dark thirty... and the only thing that would appease her was looking at pictures on my phone. I realized I had a few nuggets hidden on there that hadn't been shared, and should be.

On Mason's birthday (back in October) we went on a bike ride. I think, judging by his smile, that he enjoyed it... and for all of you fans, yes, that is a Michigan State Spartan helmet.

The boys and I went camping last summer:

A few weeks ago, the fire alarm went off during the middle of church. The fire department had to respond... a good time was had by all. Especially all the kids that got to take turns sitting in the Firetruck while the firefighters were inside resetting the [fasle] alarm.

This is a picture of my dad. It's not a great picture by any means, but it tells a lot about him: He wears hats, he takes lots of pictures, he appreciates old barns, and he appreciates cities that find creative uses for old barns in our modern world. There are lots of other neat things about him... but this isn't the post for it.

Who knew the view was so good from Kaiser building on the east of town?

This is what happens when you let Grandma play with Julia...

I couldn't decide which I liked better... so you get both. Not bad for the camera on my cell phone.

I just couldn't leave those yucky pictures of Julia up any more even though our lives haven't changed all that much. This is from Monday, laundry day. Julia and Cooper love to get in the basket before I put all the warm clothes in. They think they are in the hot tub. Julia learned to say warm.
Thank you aunt Chris and the Smiley's for all the new clothes! the boys are in heaven with their new wardrobe.
