The 8-10 All Star Season has come to an end and it was kind of crummy to be perfectly honest. They lost every game they played and never could figure out how to play as a team. But lessons were learned and we got some cute pictures of our little baller out of it so I guess it wasn't a total loss!!

It's actually pretty nice having it come to an end though so we don't have to worry anymore about practices and games cutting into our summer schedule. We are still proud of our little All-Star and can't wait to see how he will continue to progress as a baseball player!

Dentist Diva!

Six months ago I took Maylie to her first dentist appointment and it was an absolute disaster. She screamed and cried the whole time and the dentist wasn't able to do anything with her teeth.

On Thursday, July 19th all the kids had their dentist appointments and Maylie was an absolute angel patient this time around. She sat in the chair all by herself, got a full cleaning done including some polish at the end. I loved seeing her all relaxed with her sunglasses on to protect her eyes from the overhead lights.
This time she definitely earned her certificate, a prize, and a new princess toothbrush. I hope she continues to be an angel patient for the dentist!!

Six Flags in the Summer!

We headed over to Six Flags on Saturday, July 14th so we could enjoy the water park that is only open during the summer months. We really enjoyed all the different water slides and the lazy river but our favorite area was probably the wave pool. We spent a lot of time there!

Here was also a fun kids area that was especially fun when the water would dump out of the giant bucket up on the top and drench everyone!!

We spent several hours in the waterpark and then changed into our regular clothes before heading out to the amusement park area. We only last about an hour though because it was so hot before deciding that we were ready to head back home. I hope we can make it back one more time to enjoy the waterpark before it closes for the season though because we really did have a great time there!

Discovery Fun

We busted out our membership to the Discovery Station one Friday morning and the kids had a great time there like usual. They especially love the arts and crafts area. 

Maylie loved painting and building with blocks...

Landon created his own version of the Empire State Building...

Nolan created a little ball toss game with some recycled supplies!

Abby stayed upstairs doing more crafts while the boys headed downstairs to try their luck in car building and racing.

20 Weeks!

Now that I am feeling better, this pregnancy is really going by quickly. I loved seeing our little man during our 20 week anatomy scan on Thursday, July 12th. He was quite the mover which I had already figured out with all of his movements that I feel during the day!

I really loved this cute picture of his little face!! He already looks like a Call baby, especially like a little Nolan!
A profile shot...

A good shot of his head, torso and curled up little legs!!

And a little creepy one of his face!!
Over halfway there to meeting this little guy and we are all so excited!!

Summer with friends!

The kids have enjoyed getting together with various friends this summer. A lot of Abby's friends belong to Northwood Pool so we are always glad when we are there on a day when some of her friends are there too. Here are a few of them swimming together...
Landon  got invited to go to Six Flags with his friend Bridger and his mom sent me these pictures during their fun day. Landon tried his first Turkey Leg and was quite a fan!!

Oh how I love all the fun summer memories we are making!!
