Last Day of School

Elise and Carter had their last day of school. Quincy has now turned 8 months old and has 2 teeth on the bottom and continues teething working on his top teeth :) On Memorial Day we stayed home and had a BBQ with Dayna, Sally and their kids. Quincy tried watermelon for the first time and we sprayed the kids on the tramp. We are getting very excited for summer, here we go....

Mother Daughter/Camp Out

Elise and I had a fun night away at a mother/daughter camp out. It was perfect weather and camping in a cabin is definitely my ideal way to camp. We crafted until midnight, ate tons of yummy food and treats and we both made some new friends. Enjoy some pics :)

"I Can See Clearly Now..."

Remember that time your daughter told you she couldn't see the board at school and hasn't been able to for a long time? Daniel and I literally had no idea! Elise said she would just ask her friends what the teacher was writing on the board. Luckily it didn't cause her to fall behind in class, and now she says everything looks "Brighter" and "Clearer" so it's all good. We started her out with a couple pairs and she is slowly getting used to them :)


 Getting checked out at the eye doctor - it's a pretty decent prescription
 All tuckered out
 Elise has always been helpful but she has become even more helpful lately with Quincy and Monroe
