Blake's Week at Daycare

Blake has been doing really well in the big kid room. So far there has been no biting (knock on wood)! It is hard for him to be dropped off in the morning and during outside time because he sees all of his other friends and wants to be playing with them. Miss Ashley and Miss Amanda love him and say he is a happy fun kid all day long. Here are some pictures of the last week.

Chicago River Cruise

For Katie's birthday in June her Mom got her tickets to take a boat ride on the Chicago River. This past weekend we were able to go with her and Eric and Russ and Erica. Despite the fact that it took awhile to get into the city it was a lot of fun. It was the perfect weather and it was so relaxing. It almost made me like the city :)

Blake's Week at Daycare

This week was a wild ride for Blake at daycare. Monday he bit twice and Louis and I had to pick him up early. Then on Tuesday he bit again! Luckily, daycare has been really nice and supportive about us trying to get Blake to change his behavior. Knock on wood the rest of this week has been bite free. 

Painting, the teachers are so brave, I would never let Blake have that much paint around!

Just working on some puzzles

Blake and his girlfriend Ella. I think this explains their relationship perfectly. Blake leading her into what I am sure is some trouble!

Gym Time!

Door County Part 2

Blake enjoying the park in Sister Bay

Swinging in front of the hotel

James, Colleen, Louis and I went mini-golfing. I got 2 hole-in-one's (stupid James had 5, booo) and they had this huge chair so I thought it would be a good photo op

Blake discovered how much fun it is to slide backwards

Door County Trip

Over the 4th of July weekend we headed up to Door County to have a family vacation with the Malic crew. We stayed in Ephraim but visited Fish Creek and Sister Bay as well.

First Trip to the Zoo

For our monthly Kramer/Malic date we headed off to the zoo. The Kramer's love the zoo, so it was only fitting that Blake's first time there was with the experts. He was kind of cranky at the beginning and insisted on being held by only me for awhile. He was fascinated....

Yep, we go to the zoo and the chipmunk is top entertainment

Watching the bear take a nap

We finally got Blake to go to Uncle Eric, well Miss Raegan wasn't having that

Now he has two!!!

In Katie and I's mind they are best friends

Our one attempt at a family picture

I swear Katie was there but somehow I didn't get a picture of her. Note to self, for our July date, lots of pictures of Katie and Jenny :)

Three Years

Two weeks ago it was our third wedding anniversary. We went to Lake Geneva to celebrate. We ate lunch at Pier 290, boat tour on the lake and then drinks at the Grand Geneva.

This was the only picture we took together so excuse me looking huge compared to Louis in the camera. 

I can't wait for many more years together!! Love you!!
