More catch up!

I'm thinking this was Jack's first day of school this year. Not sure why his nose looks like its running. The rest of these are the few things I managed to take pictures of this summer. Pretty lame of me but I was just too sick to catch all the fun we had!
Tall ships came to Cleveland. These were some beautiful ships. Jack loved them because they were "real" pirate ships.

For the 4th of July we had a breakfast and little parade with the ward. Sorry Jack's bike is so blurry (have I mentioned my camera sucks!!) He's got a napkin on his head for some reason? :)
Jack took swimming lessons this year and did really well! I think I only took my camera once so here's just a few.

These are the rest of Jack's soccer pictures. He LOVED it and Max wanted the ball the whole time. He LOVES balls, its so fun especially now because he says ball and usually adds basket, or bouncy or bouncy basket to the word ball. Its so funny to hear!

Gotta love the sweaty head!

Team picture, most are from our ward but a few weren't. Alison in our ward was Jacks coach. It was so much fun!

Max would always eat with his hands full, then need a drink so try to pick it all up. Thought this was so funny, he doesn't do that anymore :( Its crazy how fast they change!
Jack's last day of school in June. This is one of his teachers Mrs. Blados (she had a baby so she's not his teacher this year).
This is Mrs. Futchi, and she is still his teacher this year. Jack LOVES school and I'm so glad he likes it and wants to go everyday.

Huh, well I guess this is some catch up!

Our sweet friends moved to Columbus so we headed down to go to the temple and let the kids play with the Rynearsons. Maddie and Bella are Jacks age and he ADORES them! They also have a little boy Nathan who is about a month younger then Max. Jack has so much fun playing with them that the next night he was saying his prayers and said, " Bless Maddie and Bella to be good so we can play in heaven together, because I love them so much even more then mom and dad." Then looked at Pete like oops. He asked Pete if that made him sad and Pete said yes but Jack said sorry I just really love them! So cute.
Our little Max is so funny and so much fun. He's always been my little ray of sunshine. This blue shirt was my baby brother Craig's shirt (who Jack is named after) Max is just a little older then Craig was when he died so its special to see him in this shirt. I love it but am so scared he's going to get it dirty and ruin it.
Max has started to LOVE books and will just sit down and look at one for quite a while. We found him after a bath one night sitting on this stool looking at a book. He also loves to look at the camera, smile and say cheese.
Max's first Indians game. He liked it but really liked that we had licorice for him to eat. There were fireworks after the game. They are awesome, better then the 4th of July. Both Max and Jack loved those.

Jack was more interested in sitting with friends and eating snacks. Sad to think this was probably our last Indians game. Its sad to think that this is the year of lasts for us in Ohio. We love it here and LOVE the beauty, however I'm pretty sure Florida will be just as much fun if not more! So for those of you who don't know we are heading to Florida this next summer for two more years of school, then into the real world of paying off a bum load of loans.

Recent happenings

We went to the Memorial Day parade. Max was so tired and we couldn't tell if he liked the parade or not, this was his face the whole time...except when Anderson came to sit next to him. Max seemed pretty happy A was next to him for a few minutes. Not so sure Anderson was happy about Max picking on him! We thought the parade started at ten but realized soon that it didn't start till eleven. We had walked so we just chilled on our friends lawn for a hour while we waited. It was so so hot and humid but I guess a nice day for a parade. Jack made the haul with candy which I ate my fair share of.
Some of the group.
Some more of the group. Notice Jack picking a wedgie? I guess it s time to get him some bigger undies! Poor boy was having trouble all day!
Oh man this is sweet Eli! Look at those cheeks, this kid is irresistible!!!

Okay so I love these pictures cause both their hats turned while riding in the stroller and in both these pictures they have the same faces on as each other. Cute boys!

Jack started soccer. It was so much fun to watch, you couldn't wipe the smile off my face while watching these cute kids play. So funny!! Pete was golfing so he missed the first day. Max was good and sat in his stroller for quite a while before I let him out to wander. Jack did so good, although it was seriously 85 degrees at 9 in the morning plus super humid! They worked on skills first then got to play the orange team. The orange team called themselves the tigers so Ali (jacks coach) asked them if they wanted to be called something. One boy suggested the dragons. Jack was super excited about that and was ready to throw fire balls. A few years ago Jack was a dragon for Halloween and Pete taught him how to throw fire balls while he was a dragon. So I was laughing so hard watching Jack run around throwing fire balls at the other team instead of trying to play soccer. Anyway it was cute! Now we have to make sure we take our video camera next week to try to catch that. It really is so so funny to watch these little kids play when they have really no idea how to play. Love it! In this one below he is starting to throw them.

Just thought this was cute.
One Saturday Pete needed to mow the lawn. Max LOVES being outside and screams to go outside. So Pete put him in the swing and I just thought it was cute to see him out there totally content to just sit and watch.
We are taking a finance class and while there one week Max had a blow out and the friend watching him didn't tell me she just changed him but the clothes she had clean and able to get to quick were the reds and pinks in the dryer. So Max's first time in pink. I thought he looked pretty adorable!! Someday we'll have pink around our house... I hope!!
Just had to throw this in. Our favorite pizza place out here called Dewey's sells their dough. So I got some dough one night and make our own Dewey's pizza. It was HEAVEN!! Seriously the dough makes all the difference! If you are out this way you HAVE to eat at Dewey's

Max was super excited Jack left his breakfast unattended so he could get some!
Trying to climb the couch so he could get the big exercise ball back there.

Sorry about this scary picture of Jack. I couldn't see in the small picture all the food in his teeth. Pete went to a wrestling thing back in April and Jack got to go for a couple hours . He loved it and they both had a good time. This really made Pete miss his dad. They used to go to lots of wrestling tournaments together so Pete was really wanting to share this with him too. That's okay though there will be plenty more to come.

Jack had a field trip to the Lake Farm Park this year. I got to go and it was a lot of fun. He got to see lots of farm animal and even milk a cow. This above picture is funny if you can see whats going on. This lamb came right up to Max and was licking the stroller right by his face. Max was not impressed that the lamb was so close.

Max had a fever a few months ago (it was an ear infection) and I couldn't resist taking this cute picture of him. I felt so bad, he was miserable. Love the huge belly, sometimes I really think its so big and tight that it might pop!
