Break Time

Deric, Daddy and Cookie taking a break.

Fishing trophy

Daddy and Mr. Jeff did pretty good at a recent fishing tournament, but Bradley was the one that got to go up to accept the prizes and plaque – here he is posing with Mr. Jeff.

Boat trip

We went out one afternoon to put a few bluegill in the boat and brought some home to cook up.

Calling his shot

Trying to stay in his big brother’s footsteps, Deric is calling his shots off the T now.

Turn off the lights!!!

Bradley’s artistic side

Bradley has REALLY been into taking pictures lately – I’m not kidding when I say that I downloaded over 1,000 pictures in the last week.  Some cute, some not so much.  He lined us up for posing on the playground in this sequence.

Seven Springs Buffet

Our annual Seven Springs trip with the folks.

A little slice of Heaven

We went to see a great concert while camping but it was too loud for Deric so we sat far away from the stage and he fell asleep in my arms.  We always talk about how we need to enjoy all the little things, because you never know when it will be the last time it happens – like when Deric says ‘WaWa’ for Bradley or ‘napqune’ for napkin – and this was one of those times and Daddy took full advantage of it.  Love you Buddy – thanks!

Bradley can't believe he's sleeping with all the noise.

Mommy swears that she caught a tear in my eye!

Just about ready to join the party again.

Our first family (tent) camping trip

We packed up the tent and headed to Jellystone for a few nights and had a great time!

Just got set up.

We had a thunderstorm that lasted about an hour.

Pancakes for breakfast!

At the craft area painting our shirts.

Best hug I've ever seen.

This air pillow was a blast!

Prepping for camp

We decided to camp out at home to practice for our upcoming camping trip.

Getting Cookie some 'good water'

We caught about 30 lightning bugs.

Deric and Cookie crashed together.
