B.I.G. B.O.Y.

We finally changed Braxton's bed into a daybed! Slowly adjusting towards a bigger bed I suppose. He thought he was pretty cool getting the rail taken off:) I think he was most excited about getting to use daddy's tools!

...and we quickly learned how to jump on the bed:)

Brad got some large sticky-note packet and Braxton and him found fun with it! Although this looks cute, this is how I should be applying notes to myself to remember things! I am SO forgetful!

I arranged a quick weekend get-a-way to Lake McConaughy to meet the Widhalm's, and the Preister's! On our way, we stopped in North Platte at Fort Cody (?I think?) and Brad enjoyed showing Braxton some things he got to do when he was a little boy, too, when his family stopped here as well.

I love it...after we took the picture, Braxton said, "no more mama", as you can see his "nooo" face:) For about a week now, 'mama' is ALL he calls me...I think it's kinda cute:)

I cannot remember whose idea it was to ride these go carts, but Brad informed me that he got kicked out of here (!!!) when he was younger...hmm...nice Brad!

Hangin' at the lake waiting for all to arrive...Braxton is big into 'candy necklaces' right now...along with CANDY in general:)

Thought this was super cute of 'my boyz' ;) Wish I could say one of these boats was ours:(

Mr. Dock took an excellent family photo for us;)
We did some fishing quick, too! Brad caught large 20some inches long I suppose...and while Braxton and I lolly-dollied over there and got to catch a glimpse of it, the line broke and 'the big catch of his life' got away...good thing he still has 'the best catch of his life' yet:) hee hee

Aaaahhhhhhh.....KIDS EVERYWHERE!!!! It was a struggle to catch a 5 year old, 4 year old, 2 2 year olds, and a 1 year old all on the same shot...but I managed! They were ALL so WILD Friday night! It was AMAZING seeing them all together playing!!! Charli being the oldest was a great leader, and Conner just a year younger really looked up to her! Next in age, Braxton, (the only child), was excited and had fun, but was VERY whiny and territorial of his things...Harper, next, just followed Doe-doe (Charli) around and hung out, and last, Sweet little Londyn, is the most MELLOW thing I have ever seen!!!! She is just along for the ride:)

I haven't had picture with my big sis and big bro in you can see, Londyn was attached to mommy, and I grew a set of arms around my neck...hmmm...

On our way to the campfire, Conner got to ride in our deluxe-built-in-car-seat...vans got it all, what can I say?!?!? Braxton was really proud that Conner got to ride with us!


Pretty girl enjoying her s'more:)

Handsome having a grahm cracker...who needs the rest?!

And mr. bug collector found himself a grasshopper! He has an official 'bug catcher' container, with holes in it and all!...okay Jen, I'm sure you are right and someday I will have one, too..ICK!

Look who gave me a flower!!!! AWW...I hope he is always this sweet on his mom! he did pick one for Aunt Jen, but it got a little demolished on the 20 foot walk back to her....

Thank you Mr. Grill for taking out photo...

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to the Widhalm's, and the Preister's for coming 4 1/2 hours to play with us!!! I am SO glad that it actually worked out for us to all meet up and hang out! Of course the weekend was waay to fast as I figured it would be, but it was A BLAST!!! Hope we can do it every year!!!! Thanks for the meals, too girls! It was Ddd-elicious!!! (miss you all already!)

p.s. I somehow deleted a few pictures out of I will add them later...sorry Londyn!
