James and Colleen's Baby Shower

This past weekend was James and Colleen's baby shower. Kathy and I hosted this one at the Turnberry Country Club. It was a fun and easy going, relaxed time which I think James and Colleen really enjoyed. 

The pinterest inspired cake was the centerpiece

Our Wisconsin Dells Trip

This past weekend we took a trip up to the Wilderness Resort in the Dells. The kids had a BLAST. First stop, the game room. 

This shooting gun weighed as much as him!

Just riding a motorcycle

Luggage cart rides + cheesy smiles= best time ever

Finally some water fun!!

Just doing a little relaxing at the wave pool

Playing at the indoor playground

That face is priceless

The highlight of the trip for Blake, riding the go-carts with Louis and I. His face had pure joy and excitement the entire time!!

Little miss wanted in on the driving action too!

Blake finally conquered his fear of standing near the mascots!! 

It was a really fun weekend getaway and so glad the kids really enjoyed swimming and playing.

These are random pics of our little cuties, enjoy!!

Her teachers got her to sit for pigtails, I LOVE IT!

He has a little rock n roll in him

Blake was insistent that he was too little to trick or treat so instead he just wore a costume to school. Then he helped us pass out candy.

Blake is a mini Louis. He wanted to wear the same outfit and was a real help bagging leaves.

Racking leaves is hard work so sometimes you fall asleep with a bowl of popcorn

Blake's 4th Birthday

For Blake's birthday we were fortunate enough to throw a joint birthday party with one of his besties, Adelyn. Since they are only a week apart it worked out perfectly! We decided to have it at the Crystal Lake Gymnastic Center. We invited all of their school friends for a SuperHero themed party. It turned out great!!!

Adelyn and Blake

Brady and Blake

Little Miss wanted in on the action

Listening to the coaches


The balance beam might have been Blake's favorite

The foam pit was a huge hit

SuperHero cake (it was SOOOO GOOD)

Her first cupcake, she wanted to be like the big kids

So glad that everyone had fun and Blake was able to celebrate with one of his best friends!
