A few weeks ago we hopped in the truck with Uncle Scott and a friend and went down to the river to fish. Well.... They fished Porter walked around checking everything out, threw sticks in the river, and enjoyed snacks. Mom was busy trying to keep Porter from falling in the river and taking pictures of course!

No one caught anything... but we still all had fun.

Family Pictures

Before Austin's graduation we were finally able to get a family picture taken- We ended up having Austin's friend Nicki take them and even though she's not a professional or anything I think she did pretty good.

Us being a little silly......

My Sis' cute little family....

Books Books and More Books

Before he was born I set a goal that I wanted to teach Porter to love books and reading like I do. I am a firm believer that a children who love reading have a head start in their education. We read together almost every day and go to story time at the library a couple of times a month.

Porter's favorite book right now is "I'm the Biggest thing in the Ocean" which is a definite must read. Porter especially loves to read with Pa who even puts up with him when Porter requests the same story over and over again!

Cream and Bacon

On mother's day I was whipping some cream to go on a cake. I stepped away from the mixer for just a second and Porter managed to launch his toy pig into the bowl. Fortunately the mixer was turned off when it happened. Bacon and Cream.... Definitely a food combination that I wouldn't have thought to try but Porter seemed to like it just fine!

Makeup Mischief

For the most part Porter is a really good little boy and sticks pretty much right by me but one day while I fixed lunch he found my makeup and thought that he should try it out- And yes thanks to my handy shout stain remover it did come out of his shirt!

After I cleaned him up I went to clean off his shirt and came back to find him walking around the kitchen in nothing but a diaper and a pair of my high heels.

Happy Birthday Tessa We Love You!!!

Catch Up

"My Mommy is a BAD BLOGGER!"

Porter is quite into making faces these days- If he's not happy with you, you know it! I have been a very bad blogger lately but bear with me as I try and catch up over the next few days.
