Baby Boy is eleven months. That means at the end of this month he turns one!!! I am not ready for this. But he seems to be. He is a climbing, jabbering, quick crawling explorer and he's ready to go places. He stands up all the time, but won't try to walk. Although, Ezra screamed at us all excited last evening and said that Henry took three steps. Only Ezra saw it and Henry has not repeated the performance since then. He got a nasty sinus and ear infection on our recent vacation--these close ups really show case his nasty state of face. But they also show off his signature look with that little curled tongue : )

She got the strawberry lemonade cake she asked for.
Spending your birthday surrounded by cousins is the way to go! Happy 7th Birthday, Caroline!

After we all left the creek, we hustled ourselves into fancy duds and gussied up our hair the best we could. Then it was off to the weddin'. Miss Ella and Miss Caroline had to be on time so that they could hand out programs to all the guests upon their arrival. The girls had fun with their job. The outdoor wedding was gorgeous! My sis-in-law Heather used my camera during the wedding since I was busy with Henry. These first dozen photos are to her credit.

What to do when I'm behind on posting? Dump a bunch of pictures into one post, of course! In case you were wondering, the kids did have a last day of school
When the short (2 hour) day was over we went down to get pictures with their teachers. We had SUCH amazing teachers this year. Our kids will truly miss these ladies. Hopefully we'll have one of them again next year.
Henry had to say good bye to his good buddy Mr. D. Mr. D is a recess teacher who would babysit Henry when I volunteered in the kids' classrooms. Yep, babysit. And the amazingness didn't end there either. The two school secretaries would also often babysit Henry while I volunteered. I never knew that a school could be this wonderful. Henry became the office baby and would get passed from friend to friend. He, of course, loved every second of it, being the people person that he is. And I so enjoyed being able to do reading groups with the first graders without having Henry interruptions.
After school we headed to a fun birthday party at a local park/splash pad. It wasn't an especially warm day--but kids don't care--they got wet anyhow.
