Camping With The Cub Scouts At McCray Farm

We had a great time at Mrs. McCray's farm on Saturday. The Cub Scouts built owl boxes and erected them on the property to help achieve their "World Conservation Award". We enjoyed hiking, fishing and camping as well! It is great fun watching the boys enjoy themselves so much! Griffin also had a friend along for the ride ~ he was chosen "Star Student of the Week" and brought Bubbles, the class mascot home with him to spend the weekend. Love family time!

Over spring break Griffin decided Iris would like a sign for her home. He created and painted a very colorful sign. Then, he and Mike attached it to her pin. If you are wondering why Iris has such long claws in the painting, it's because she has long claws in real life!

Griffin's First Time Skating!

Our fun day continued with dinner and then skate night with our church family!! This was SO much fun!! This is the first time Griffin has ever been on skates! Our friend was there to help Griffin with his first attempt at standing up on skates. Awesome. Just awesome! He even walked Griffin around the rink floor and held him up the entire time around (twice!) along with his son. Ashley was super encouraging and actually helped him go around several times without holding the wall. And of course he was super happy to also spend time with his other best buddy Kaitlyn.

Full Day Of Fun With The Halls!

Seriously ~ how much fun can one family have in one day? Our day started with lunch with our great friends Carol Franks Hall and Sam, then on to Kangaroo Jac's for a bit. The boys quickly tired of jumping on the bounceys so we decided to continue the playtime at our house. Griffin and his best buddy Sam played inside and out! Griffin is very, very lucky to have two best friends!! Carol and I played with paper {fun!}. Here you can see some of the paper crafts we made with the Silhouette ~ sweet little treat box cars, a picket fence that can be used for a treat box/snack, an adorable owl pill box (this is my fave!!), sweet tool boxes and Carol made the most AWESOME card!! We look forward to our next playdate with our dear friends.

2013: Easter Bunny Stopped By

Easter ~ he came down to a basket full of goodies! He only asked for a chocolate bunny and a golden egg. The Easter bunny remembered.
