Minion movie

We took you to your first movie to see the Minions. You did better then I expedited lasting the whole movie. We did bring juice boxes and buy the biggest popcorn they had, but still.

Hershey Park

Our first roadtrip to spend a few days at Hershey park with Gammie, Auntie Christie, Hailey, Emma, And Lucas. You did great on the car ride and were so excited to see everyone. The first day we went on a ride thru the factory and ate at Friendly's. The second day we went to the park where you did every ride some even twice. The last day we got to make our own candy bars before driving the 7 hours home. You still talk about the trip all the time mostly the cow ride. You loved having Hailey pay so much attention to you. 


Another annual summer event the Clark county fair. You went nuts for all the animals cows, sheep, goats, horses, bunnies, chickens. All the tractors and lawn mowers were fun too. You and RJ shared a lemonade after the hot morning.

Columbus zoo

It was time for our annual free military zoo trip. We took our picture with the gorilla statue like usual. And this trip was special because you got up close with the giraffe. We saw a few other neat things like lion feedings too.

Ice cream day

What else would we do on national ice cream day but eat it. You and RJ had fun sharing it.

July 4th

For the 4th of July you got stay up late and see fireworks for the first time. You liked them for a little while and naming the colors you saw. But then you wanted to get home to bed. The next day we went to the parade. You enjoyed seeing everything go by including the storm trooper. You also got the hang of the run to grab candy part fast.


We love going to Boonshoft with friends. We have been really lucky to find some great ones that you talk about non stop. You always ask about Aubrey.

Family visit

Nana, Grandpa, Auntie Sam, and Uncle Alex came to visit us. You start right where you left off climbing all over everyone. We did a lot of fun things like Young's and swimming at their hotel. Nana stayed with us for a week after. We did fun things like library and park playdate. At the end of the week we drove her to Indy to see her sister. We went to play at a church play place and ate at Cracker Barrel. 

Great Wolfe Lodge

We took a local trip to a water park hotel for a night. You loved the water and went down the slides a bunch of times. We got fun ice cream there too. You picked a penguin. We spent a lot of time climbing on a wolf statue and at the arcade too. You and RJ shared bunk beds in your own little cabin part of the room, a huge hit.

On your birthday we started with presents. We got you a grill. Auntie Sam got you a sink and Auntie Christie got you car tracks. After breakfast we went to Touch a truck event where you got to sit in every type of truck out there. You loved the school bus the best. After that we came home for nap time. After nap we headed out to the carnival where you ran up to the first ride and helped yourself on it thru the exit line. And to think I didn't know if you would ride them without us with you, boy was I wrong. We finished the day with pizza Auntie Sam had sent and of course cake too, which you made a major mess of.

At the doctor you were 35 inches and 30 pounds.

Cayden's house

We have been spending a lot of time with the warm weather in Cayden's backyard. You love jumping on his trampoline the best. There's been many times in the kiddie pool and water table too. You and Cayden love playing together even if he is RJ's age you two have a special bond based on chase.

Birthday party

 We had a joint birthday party for your 2nd and RJ's 4th. It was a Paw Patrol theme because you beg to watch it every morning. We rented a big bouncy house, which was the hit of the day. Of course put a cake in front of you and you are very happy. We are so lucky this year to have made some amazing friends. We invited RJ's class and a lot of them have younger siblings your age.

Birthday gifts

Some early birthday gifts started coming in. We got you a roller coaster toy that was a huge hit. You smile and even put your hands up saying weeeeee when going down it. Gammie and Pop sent a spinning see saw. Of course it got a few test runs in the house before heading to the backyard. Since then it has been played with everyday.


We spent a family day at the zoo. Of course we had to visit the family's fav animal of the rhino for a bit. You got a kick out of the flamingo too since it was so close to see. You screamed with delight at every animal you saw like lions ans giraffes. You are def an animal lover from a young age.


The first egg hunt at AFIT didn't go so well for you. You even put eggs back on the ground from your basket not happy. But you looked cute in your outfit at least. You didn't complain about a basket full of new toys one bit either.

With the warmer weather comes park trips and outdoor playdates and who could forget police car rides.

Indoor playground

We went to an indoor playground with lots of slides and swings. Fun was had by all. 

Bounce house

I took you to a bounce house place because RJ had a snow day and we needed to get out. You loved it.
