Cole's favorite ride...look at that excitement!

Did you all know that Ima Carol is in town? We are having so much fun with her (despite the fact that when she's here, our family goes out and does fun things and leaves us in the backyard...we don't mind though, really.) On Saturday, they went to Carowinds and the boys had a blast! Through the heat and crowds, they had so much fun riding rides and taking it all in. At first, Colton seemed a little hesitant about the bigger rides. But Jon convinced him to go on a "train" (the Woodstock Express which is actually a fun little roller coaster) and he absolutely LOVED it. He rode it about 8 or 9 times throughout the day. Beckett's favorite things were the Woodstock gliders (which actually went really high!), the train, and he even got to go on a fun little waterslide! Next year, we know that if Beck's tall enough, those boys are gonna ride the roller coaster all day together.

One of Beck's favorites...

(Cooling off a little!)

Happy Father's Day, Jon! WE LOVE YOU!!!

Playing Puppies

One of the boys' favorite things to do right now is play "puppy." They like to pretend to take puppy naps and then wake up and jump up and lick and bark and play. It's cute.

Beckett LOVES us pups. He always remembers to give us attention and hugs. WE LOVE BECK. And he's funny too. This evening, as the boys were playing upstairs with daddy and getting ready for bed, Beckett stole Cole's PJs and laughed hysterically about it.

With all the children leaving Jacksonville and heading up north, our family must have accidentally brought home one of the Keigley children! Bergen stayed with us for a couple days and we all enjoyed having him! Cole & Berg are quickly becoming best buds. They played so well...and even though Beckett felt left out sometimes, they all enjoyed hanging out together.

Go Carts Go!

In my last post we wrote about Cole's time in Florida as well as Emma & Beck's travels to meet up with him and the boys' new cousin, Rowan. (Look, we're doing so good...a second post in just under a week! We're trying to do better for our few hopefully loyal readers!) While our family was in Tallahassee, they went to Uncle Stin's place of employment, FUN STATION! Cole rode on go carts for the first time and had a blast! The carousel machines didn't work, but we still think Beck looked pretty cute on the lion below! The boys had a great time playing games inside too....Cole's favorites were skee-ball & battleship.

Colton went down to Florida two weeks ago with Oma Sally, knowing that Emma was going down for baby Rowan to be born soon. He had a great time playing with his uncles & with Oma Sally & Papa Dale. We missed him so much and are so glad all our family is back home now! Our family actually grew when they came back and we have one extra boy in the house. His name is Bergen and he's staying with us this week- we like him. Here are some shots of the adorable new baby Rowan & our family with him. Cole had about the same reaction to Rowan that he did to Beckett. There was no way we were going to put that baby on his lap. We wish we could have gone down to Florida to play with Luna- maybe next visit!
