I was tagged in a game of pictures. Here are the rules:
1. Open your first photo folder.
2. Scroll to 10th photo
3. Post the photo and the story behind it.
4. Tag 5 or more people

Here is my picture:

This pic was obviously from our wedding day on Sept 10, 2005. It was taken by a family friend right before the ceremony outside of the church. It was such a beautiful day not to mention one of the happiest days of my life. I remember being nervous and anxious for the ceremony to begin and couldn't wait for the reception.

I tag: Kyley, Jen, Jessi, Kiera and Rebecca

Trip down south...

At the beginning of March I took the kids down to Florida for a little vacation. Unfortunately, Mark couldn't make the trip due to limited vacation time for work. But my dad was able to come down and fly with me and the kids out of Dayton. The kids were great and my dad was an angel! Here is Caden and Grandpa Joe on the plane. After the sun came up he was thrilled to look out the window and see all the other planes, trucks and people.

Grandma Ginny tickling the boys
and then stopping them from rough-housing eachother. It is funny to watch them play rough with each other! Too much fun! I can just see how it is going to be in 5 years!
Joey the crab

The boys tackled Grandpa and tried to stuff him in a box.

Joe, Amy and Joey on the boat at the Naples Zoo.
The boat took us around to a few little islands to see different kinds of monkeys.

Stopping for a PB & J break at the zoo.

We also got a small blow up pool for the front yard. Caden didn't want to go in, but Joe and Joey loved it! The boys also got a bath in here one night...yes we are high class in the neighborhood!

Sammy's first trip to the beach! Here is my Aunt Marie shielding the wind from Samantha. The Ft Myers beach was a little windy when we got down there, but still fun!

Grandpa Joe taking the boys to get water in their buckets.

We bought a bag of sand for the boys to play with on the sidewalk at the house...this was a huge hit! They couldn't wait to get out there and play in the sand in the mornings!


Three cousins!
Joey (2 yrs), Samantha (4 mths) Caden (19 mths)
Who would've thought we would have blond haired kids in our family!?!

Me and my boy!

photo shoot

I thought I would include a pic of Caden at 16 weeks also...people keep asking me if I think they look alike and I am seeing more and more similarities.

Sammy got the go ahead to try rice cereal and here is her first attempt. We started a couple weeks ago with it, but I forget how slow going it can be! She has been sitting in the bumbo (which is one of Caden's new favorite words!) and getting better and better at sitting up!

Our friends (and neighbors) Ruth & Bill Barney got the kids these lobster pjs and before Caden grows out of his I thought I would get a pic of them together. He thought it was so much fun to sit with her, but unsure still.
Caught them both watching tv
