The Fantastic Four

For Fathers' Day I usually have the kids' portraits taken. This is this year's production. On our big portrait hanging on our wall you can really see the dirt in Drew's toenails. That's how his feet will look all summer!

First Smiles

Mallory has just started flashing big, toothless smiles. She is usually the most likely to smile when she wakes up in the morning and anytime Drew is around. Drew gets her to smile more than the rest of us combined.

Sprinkler Fun

We had a fun BBQ at the Marler's recently to honor Nathan & Laura (Marler) Hesmann's graduation from medical school. The kids appreciated Aunt Cathy's idea of playing in the sprinkler on such a hot day.

Cousin Joey isn't so happy about getting squirted in the face.

Ross, Harrison, Grant, Emmaline, and Drew wait for the water. Notice Drew getting ready to bolt.

Aren't big sisters great?

Elizabeth always has a great time dressing Drew up, and he is always a willing participant. He had no problem getting into the pink and white bunny suit. He reminded me of Ralphie in "A Christmas Story," although he was much happier wearing the costume.

Beach Baby

Of course Mallory is still too little to take a dip in the pool, but she was styling in her strawberry bathing suit to watch Daddy and the big kids go for a swim at aunt Joanie & uncle John's pool.
