Happy Birthday to Max!

Max is 5...what! It's crazy how fast that came. Max is such a fun kid. Although a little shy in public, he's super goofy when he's comfortable. And he is oh so sweet (when he wants to be :) Here is a prime example.

Translation: "I love Dad cause I love kissing him"
Translation: " I love mom more than this" (and then drew 2 ice cream cones)

He is constantly writing notes or just flat out saying stuff like this. Sometimes he writes more than my favorite thing (whatever that is at the moment) or more than a hundred trillion gillion or bigger than the biggest heart. Stuff like that. It melts me every time. The reason I said he is sweet when he wants to be because you might notice that the ice cream cones have red x's through them. He got mad at me later that day and crossed them out. He then saw that it made me feel bad and so to make up for it, he later wrote "100" meaning 100 scoops of ice cream. So we're good :)

To start off Max's big day, we did our traditional pancakes shaped like the first letter of your name and also how old you are. I need to work on my pouring skills, but you get the point.

Earlier this summer, we went to the lake and Max knew from that point on, he wanted a beach party, so that's what we did and it was a blast. Good call buddy :)

Ben, Madelyn, Cohen, Max, Justin, Jayne

They made boats and used their straws as the sails

Happy Birthday Max...we love you!

Scenes From Our Summer-Part 1

This is basically a HUGE post of pictures (with a few captions) so I can catch up a little. This consists of our May and June adventures. Part 2 (July and August) will come at the end of August. Yeah, I'm pretty sure I won't post anything until then anyway :)

Max finished another year of our neighborhood preschool. This is a little project I did with the kids. Ours was the only bean that didn't grow. Beans are pretty much the easiest things in the world to grow! Thus, I really suck at growing things.

Max helping us unload the wood chips-what a stud

This is classic Jayne. We had put her to bed only to later find her naked and playing with an umbrella that was in the closet (and breaking it-also classic Jayne)

Classic Max-cut off shirt, shorty shorts and cowboy boots-
this is the kind of stuff he would wear all the time if we let him

Classic Lucy-the happiest, sweetest baby you've ever met in your life
Reading to Lucy

The next series of photos is from our annual trip to Island Park with Shane's family
Classic Shane with the nice tuchus :)

Max participated in a little sports camp with his cousin Cohen. He is going through a shy phase so he really freaked out at first, but then jumped right in and loved it.

And, just for fun, I leave you with this. Don't lose your lunch.
