Baby Snuggles

There really is nothing better than snuggling with a baby. And when that baby is a precious, wonderfully sweet, baby girl it makes snuggling even better. :) Jenni and Joshua come downstairs every morning to get some quiet time in with Juliette while Jackson's still sleeping. I think it's one of their favorite times of the day.

Dates with Daddy

Boys Day
 They started their day at the car shop waiting for an inspection. Then it was off to run a few errands.
Then the two went to their favorite breakfast place and sat at the bar. After breakfast they went to look at hunting guns. For lunch they went to McDonald's and Joshua got a Happy Meal. After lunch they went exploring at Cabela's where Joshua picked out some binoculars. :)

Daddy/Daughter Day
 IHOP for breakfast
 Exploring at Cabela's

And then Eric surprised J by taking her to get her fingernails polished. :)

Adventures with Grandpa and Grandma

 My parents graciously came to stay with the littles while we were in the hospital and then we joined the fun when we came back home to continue the adventures together.
 They took the littles on walks around the neighborhood and our park and playground. Grandpa and Grandma brought scooters for the littles which are SO much fun.
 Juliette's first time to Bahama Bucks! :)

 Grandpa was a trooper and tried out the trampoline with Jenni and Joshua.

 Their adventures continued at Cabela's where they spent a good amount of time looking at boating, camping, and hunting gear - a favorite of Jenni and Joshua's.

 Grandpa John and Joshua selected some kind of awesome pretend gun for Joshua.

 Their adventures continued at Quick Trip with a snack and slush - a fun grandparent tradition that began when Jenni was quite young.
 Joshua enjoyed puzzles and popcorn.

 The little boys had lots of energy so I sent them outside to play when it was raining. Always fun.

 My mom, Jenni, Juliette, and I went on a girls date that included a quiet lunch and then a stop at a jewelry store.
 Sweet J took her time walking up and down the aisles looking for just the right thing. She picked out a locket and a few other items.
 Jenni creatively thought up a game in which the players have five minutes to draw a picture and then someone guesses what each person has drawn.
 Jackson's first QT drink! :)
We are thankful for all the time my parents spent with us and the littles creating special memories when our sweet girl was born!
