1st Family Photo

I assume most of you know, but I realized some may not be sure of our connection with these guys. Dave is Ed's brother, Michelle our sis-in-love and Charlie is our new nephew. And I love him!

Charlie is here!!!

God blessed Dave & Michelle today with the healthy arrival of Charles Robert Sanderson. He was born about 6pm and weighed 7.02 lbs. He is so beautiful and Michelle looked awesome! Here are some pictures from our visit. The kids are so excited to have a new cousin to play with!

4th of July

On the 4th we had a BBQ for friends and family who helped us move over a year ago. Hey, we may be slow, but we're still thankful. We had about 30 people show and spent the day swimming, eating, visiting and finished off with fireworks...which Cole is deathly afraid of and watched from his window in the safety of his bunkbed. I have found that it is difficult to throw a party at your house, tend to four kids AND take pictures so I was lucky to get a few.

Chase was less afraid of the fireworks, but that's probably because he found comfort in his Grandpa's arms. (Check out Aunt Michelle's belly! Charlie is almost here!!!)

The kids got to do sparklers after the "show".

We added a new pool toy and I tell you it's been the best $10 I've ever spent. They spend most of their time climbing onto it only to fall off almost immediately. It was alot of work to get this picture.

Last but not least, Chase had an 18 month well-baby visit and weighed in at 29 lbs. That was after having the stomach flu for 2 weeks! We love our Meat-hook! How can you not want to kiss this mug!?

Birthday Boy

Drew celebrated his 7th birthday on 6/27. Dad took he and 2 friends to bowl and play video games then swim and eat cake. Drew was bothered by the fact that you could only get 1 type of shoes and they were pink and green. I'm not sure why he cared so much when, as you can see, he is wearing a blue shirt with green shorts.
