Daddy's day (belated)

I love my Dad because: he plays with me

My Dad is really good at: hunting (I was surprised that Madisyn remembered that Rob hunts, especially since the theme around our house lately has been fishing!)

My Dad helps me with: playing (see a theme?) :)

My favorite memory of Dad is: he helps me to eat

Thanks for being the most wonderful father for Madisyn and Landon. You compliment me perfectly, as both a father and a spouse! I could not asked to be more blessed! We love you, honey!

For those of you who didn't know, on Father's Day Rob headed to Alaska for work. Although we always miss each other, I think it was a little easier on him this time as he had a couple of days of fishing to keep him occupied :) In the bottom one, you can see how close the bears were to his customer's son, Nick.


I wish I had taken pictures of the storm last night, it was intense, to say the least... the next door neighbor had a visit from the fire department and numerous other authorities due to the flood in her finished basement where they had an exposed wire letting off sparks. Needless to say, everyone was okay and here are a few pictures of the storm before it hit today.

For now... they adore each other!

And this morning I found them both in Landon's crib (Madisyn only in underwear) with books and stuffed animals from Madisyn's room. They were just sitting, talking, laughing, and reading books! Melts my heart!

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

Tiece of Cake

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
