Ivy and Capri Come For a Visit

In the summer of 2012 Ivy came to stay with us for about 3 weeks and Capri came for a couple of days during that time. Ivy is so easy to have come visit cause she just wants to be with me so anything we do is good with her. We had so much fun spending a lot of time outside.
 Playing in the neighbors sprinklers. 
Zach, Isa, and Lola. The kids spent a lot of time in this little pool.

 While Ivy was here Fast (Ty's work) to us to Knights action park. Lucky us. 
"Remember Lola be careful" Isa says.

 We went to St. Louis and took the girls to the American girl store. Addi loves her new Julie doll!

Grandma Kunic comes for a visit summer 2012

Grandma Kunic, Mike, Soren, Stien, and Doug came to visit us. We had a great time and got to do so much. This pregnant lady was exhausted! But it was all worth it!
 At the Abraham Lincoln Museum.

 Catching a quick lunch right after meeting with them in St. Louis.
 The St. Louis Arch of course. The walk to the Arch was beautiful. We actually went up in the arch and it was crazy how much it sways.
 The City museum in St. Louis. It is really a big playground of things to climb on made of old city scraps.The kids love it here!

Friends of Springfield Illinois

 We are so lucky that after our big move we were able to make new friends so quickly!
Our great friends the Wheelers (Shannon, Zoey, Mitch, and Charley) lived in our neighborhood for a year. Before moving back to Indiana. I was so sad to see them leave! I loved Shannon! She would sit outside with me and just talk while we watched our friends leave. She made me feel like I still had a support system. The kids had a goodbye party before they moved. These pictures were taken then.
 The Griffin's (Susie, Byron, Jerron, and Aiclynn) I met them in the hotel we were staying in before we even had a home yet. They moved here at the same time as us. Her husband works for the same company as my husband, Lucky us! Me and Susie clicked instantly and were inseparable until she moved to Alaska in April 2013. It has been so hard loosing these two friends! I have not been able to find ones to replace them yet. The good news is I will still see Susie and her family every year at AGM.

Summer fire at the Carpenters (who live next door). Shannon and her husband Tommy are in this picture.

Rhett is 10

 Rhett is really into the Halo video game. So I made him this cake.
We asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday and he said go to I Hop so Ty went into work late and we all went to I Hop for breakfast. 
     I love this sweet boy so much! He has such a good heart and is such a fun kid to be around. He has so much energy. Everyone loves Rhett!

Hawaii AGM 2012

Hawaii was a great time! It was exactly what I thought it would be.
