Memorial Day

Cousin Andy showing us his skiing skills.

The Matlosz Fam

The boys enjoying their marshmallows...without roasting them, again.

Adam jumping like a crazy man...who needs a rope to hold on to?

Jackson's first tubing run - he loved it and cried when he had to get back in the boat.

Jackson and Jack going for a boat ride.

This past weekend we spent some time up at the Matlosz' cottage on Round Lake. It was our first time up there and we had a blast. The weather was beautiful and the boys had a ball together. Jackson really needs a sibling, but until then, he has some great friends. As you can see, the older boys also had some fun playing on the water.
Thanks for a great weekend Matt & Alice - count us in next time for sure.

Colin James

Colin James Lentine came into the world yesterday afternoon. Katie had a great delivery...the labor was a little rough with a lot of back labor, but they are both doing great now. Colin looks a lot like Katie (at this point) with red hair like his dad. He weighed in at 8 lbs. 10 oz. and was 22-1/2" long. I will post more pictures soon - thanks Dave for the picts so far!

Crazy Great Gi-gi's

I just had to post this picture. We have been trying to get Jackson to get a picture taken with his two Great Grandma'a....and as much as he likes to get his picture taken, he wouldn't let us. So, on Mother's Day we tricked him and it worked. The picture is priceless. A very important picture that he will someday cherish. I never had the opportunity to know my Great Grandparents and he doesn't know how lucky he is to have them around. They are a little crazy when they are together, so Jackson calls them Crazy Gi-gi's now...woops, it only takes one time for him to repeat it!

Weekend with friends

This past weekend, good friends from College came to hang out for the day. My old roommate from CMU - Kellie and her husband Troy (with their new daughter Raegan), along with Brooke and Ben (and their new daughter Kayla) spent the day with us. As you can see we ventured out to see the horses, which the kids loved....a little intimidated at first. The girls stayed home, while all of the boys went does that work for a Mother's Day weekend? :) We had so much fun though - thanks guys for making the road trip to see us.


Friday night the Matlosz' and Zaskowski's came over for dinner and S'mores. The boys ate all their share of marshmallows before we even put them over the fire. As you can see, Jackson wanted us all to know that he had them in his mouth. Thanks for a great evening guys!

Helping Papa

Jackson had the chance last week to help Papa move all of the rocks from the trailer into the creek. He thought he was so strong...and kept telling us to look at his muscles. And of course, Papa let him ride on top of the rocks. I think he would live outside if we let him. Anything to help Papa and get a chance to ride on the tractor.
