This afternoon Mason and Dylan got to practice their gaming skills as they enjoyed playing Candyland and A Scooby Doo Matching Game Together. Mason loved showing Dylan how to pick the cards and move to the different places on the board almost as much as when he got a Double Green Card!! They also had fun lining up all the cars around the track...thanks for a great afternoon playdate!!!

This past week our Little Girl turned 17 months...I guess we will keep counting until 2...then she can just be 2 for the year and it will be alot easier to keep up with:) Cari now weighs almost 30lbs and pretty much towers over most of the kids very close to her age. The doctor said she is just great though:) (All the ladies at the doctor's Office always joke that she is the Little Coppertone Baby too) I guess she does resemble, especially with her piggy tails...I had to google after so many comments about it:)
Her new words this month (and yes she is still a baby of few) are Thank You, Daisy, and in case you didnt know this, Cari thinks all animals say: "Moo". We are thankful to have such a sweet, smiley and happy little girl.

We really had a Great Time last night taking the kids to Stumptown Park to watch their outdoor Movie Concert. The kids played in a huge Sandbox right in front of the movie screen, played on the pirate ship at the little park, ate snowcones and even got balloon animals made by a clown. Carissa got a Doggie and Mason got a sword. They had so much fun and did not do too bad sitting on the blanket to watch the movie when it turned dark.
Mason loves his Daddy and wants to be just like him....He was so excited when his found a Visor in his closet that looked just like Daddy's Golfing Visor...He asked me if I would take their picture together in them:) Then he asks to see the camera to see if we got a good one (Picture)!!
Our friends called us last week and invited us to go with them to Discovery Place to check out the new Pirates Exhibit....we gladly excepted and headed to Uptown Charlotte on the LightRail. The kids love to ride the train to the city. We got to check out the Circus Exhibit, the new children's play area and then the cool Pirate Treasures. Mason sure did like the huge Pirate Ship Mural and the buried treasure found at the bottom of the Ocean. Lunch at Fuel Pizza afterwards was also a yummy treat.

Yesterday the kids enjoyed an afternoon playing with friends in our Backyard. Popsicles and watermelon are always a hit, they were so cute sitting together in the chairs. Mason and Colin had a blast riding around on the Power Quad together. Mason's biggest adventure was entertaining his pet grasshopper we caught. He came up to me and told me he gave his grasshopper a cheese ball because he was getting a little bit hungry!!! AHH...to be a little boy!!!

The kids sure did enjoy running around the 18th Hole ,all the while, the beautiful fireworks were exploding in the skies above them. 4th of july this year was super fun as we had our family in town to help us celebrate. Mason and Carissa loved playing with their Cousin Emma and can't wait to see them again in just a few weeks back in Chicago.
4th of July is always such a good excuse to get together with friends and family...we spent the day at the waterpark followed by a cookout at our house with friends. Later that evening we headed over to watch the fireworks at the Carmel Country Club...It was so cool to sit on the greens right next to a sand trap while watching the fireworks show above. The kids did a couple sparklers but were actually pretty happy just running around the golf course wearing their red/white/blue glow braclets. The kids even blew out the candles on our Happy Birthday America Cake!!
