The central struggle of parenthood is to let our hopes for our children outweigh our fears.

Summer Fun At The Park

As I write this entry I'm digesting the painful realization that summer is almost over. We had a chance to do many park outings around the city and have loved them all! It's been such a fun summer!

Parker Evelyn is Two!

Parker turned 2 on May 26th. She's getting so big and very talkative. We don't always understand every word, but she's talking more every day. She's painfully shy and extremely stubborn.

Happy New Year

I have definitely lacked in the blog update department over the past few months. I'm going to blame it on Parker. She's far too busy and mischievous for me to take my eyes off of her. She is really chatting up a storm these days. We can't understand much of it, but there are a few intelligibile words in there. We had a great Christmas in Texas and can't wait to go back to visit Grandma and Grandpa again. Happy Holidays! I'm going to try to post at least once a month in 2010...

Splash Kingdom

We took Eli to a waterpark while we were in Texas.  Parker stayed back with Grandma and Grandpa because it was about 110 degrees!  Too hot for Miss P.  We had a great time and Eli wants to go back again next year.

Fishing in Texas

We just got back from visiting Grandma and Grandpa in Texas.  Marshall caught this fish about an hour after we got there.  His biggest catch yet!

Summer Camping Trips

So far this summer we've camped at Two Rivers, Botna Bend, Prairie Rose, and Mahoney.  Just a few pics of birthdays and camping.  I'm not doing the best job of keeping up with posts this summer.  Most of my days consist of chasing Miss Parker all over!

Happy Birthday Eli and Parker!

Eli turned 5 years old on May 11th and Miss Parker turned 1 on May 26th.  Somehow I didn't get a picture of Eli's birthday cake this year.  It was a "Ben 10" cake and he loved it even though he didn't eat it.  Still not a fan of cake.  Parker didn't eat hers either so it must be in the genes.
