E's Half Birthday!

We celebrated Ethan's half birthday by swimming at Aunt Judy's house!

Playing with cousin Matthew

"Loving on" Matthew, or eating him.  The jury is still out on that one. :)

The babies had had enough and were so ready for naps.
Perfect photo-op with Aunt Alli!

Father's Day

I had a lot of fun doing this little project for Dean. He is proudly displaying the pictures on his desk at work. 
I think he had a great first Father's Day.
