Ashton's Last Ball Game

Great Season Hawks!!!

Ashton finished up his season with the Hawks! It was an awesome experience. I didn't realize how much he was going to love playing ball. He has watched his dad play hard ball his whole life (and we are hoping for many years to come), I guess it was only natural he would love playing too. I wonder if Jack will love it?
Getting ready to knock it out of the park!
Ashton had such an incredible hit!
Heading for 1st base!

Throwing it home.

Resting between innings!

Baseball was fun, and the season ended too quickly for us, but . . . Don't be too sad! We got the call, SOCCER starts next week!!!! I am still wondering what I have gotten myself into!!!

Both Ashton and Jack will be playing soccer! I will update with a schedule when I have it, and pictures too! I should have known when God blessed us with three boys, that my life would revolve around some type of sport.

1st Golf Tournament

Ashton completed his first golf tournament yesterday. He, and his friend and golf partner Dalton competed in the Junior 2 Person Scramble. They did great!! They were the youngest kids there, the kids they competed against were nine and twelve. The rest of the kids were all older teens. It took 4 hours to golf the back nine.

MVP of Basics!!!!

He's our Most Valuable Player

He is such a great little player. He made a great play at his last game. He got his opponent out at second base!! Great job little guy!!!!
He received his pics today, I was stunned at how great they were, if I would have know how terrific they would have turned out, I would have gone order CrAzY!!! Thank goodness he's only six and will be at sports for a while, I have plenty of years to collect pics!!!

It's Independence Day!!!

Happy Birthday America!!!

On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the "land of the free and the home of the brave" so they can begin their American Dream.

Since Jesse play ball in Mellen, he is in the parade. So we always do the Mellen parade, so we can see Daddy, and his cousins who ride the fire trucks.

Picture of boys at parade, they were waiting for it to start. They had a blast, they loved collecting all the candy!!!!

I just love this picture of Jack, this was taken at Daddy's ball game.

Here is Arianna and the boys at the ball park while Daddy played ball.

GOOOOOO JESSE!!!!!!!!!! It was a close game, they beat Glidden by one in the 13th inning!

They were so cold for the fireworks. They liked them a little, but they were too cold and tired from a long fay at the ball park. We went home after the hill broke out into small fires from the fire works.

30th Birthday!

Happy 30th Birthday (on the 2nd) to me!!

My wonderful sister Heather and my mom threw me a little pArTy at McDonalds after Asthon's baseball game. We had fun with friends, kiddos, and cake! We completely trashed the place, it was great. Thanks to everyone who came and to my sister and mom, I love you!!!

Wow, 7 years of wedded bliss. I can't believe how quickly these years have past and how much has happened since. It has been such an exciting journey of love and learning. We've accomplished so much in such a short time. I love you more each passing day, I love the life we have built together. Thank you for seven wonderful years! May our future be as bright, strong, and wonderful as the love we have for each other.


One kiss is all I want

To take away my tears

And give me a healthy smile

One kiss is all I want

To give me hope

And take on life as it comes

One kiss is all I want

To know your lips

And hold them forever

One kiss is all I want

To show you I love you

And be there for eternity

~I love you Jesse!
