...a few days ago Carrie lost one of her top-middle teeth, and today the other one fell out!...
 ...doing the robot?...
 ...the first strawberry pickin' of the season. Yumm-o!...
 ...Andrew went to his first day camp this month. He LOVED it!! So blessed that he has such wonderful scout leaders. It was a two day camp, and each day he came home tired, with lots of crafts to show off, and stories to tell...
...mmmMMMmmm. 
We had a father's day picnic in the backyard. Someone liked the corn on the cob!... 
 ...the benefit of waking up early to go for a run... watching the sun rise...
 ...oh, just another picture of this cute boy eating...
...I love my girl and her creative imagination!... 
 ...he didn't necessarily want in on the action, but was forced into it...
 ...fun at the Tooele Arts Festival!...
 ...I just got done running 3.1 miles, I'm down 18 pounds, and I'm feeling good!!...
 ...today I went "running" with the best running partner out there. Today I struggled, and wanted to give up. I hate the heat. I was psyching myself out because I am signed up for a 5k next week, and I kept complaining and saying that I can't do it. Kevin is always encouraging me. I walked a lot today. The 5k is going to be hard for me. Running outside is hard for me (I am used to doing most of my running on a treadmill). But I CAN do it, and I WILL...
 ...wrapped up in his sister's blanket, he kept saying cheeeeeese! So we took a picture. I LOVE this two year old boy like crazy...
 ...who needs water parks when you have a tiny pool and a baby slide?! Surprisingly they have been enjoying it for hours!...

{baby turns TWO!}

Where has the time gone?! How could it be that my baby boy is already two? 
I am not sure that I am okay with this... but since I don't have a choice, we may as well celebrate!! 
We are so so very lucky and blessed to have our tan-skinned, blonde-haired, brown-eyed Matthew in our family. He looks just like his dad with blonde hair. (In fact, his mom once said something that made us all laugh. She said about Matthew.. "He looks more like Kevin than Kevin does!!" Haha. Does that make sense?? Not really, which is why it was so great!) Matthew has been such a great addition to our family, and honestly can't imagine life without him. He is such a happy boy. If he does get grumpy (which doesn't happen often), it usually means he is hungry.... get him something to eat and he is back to his happy self. 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet Matthew!!
We sure do love you!!!
