Our Beautiful Blessings

What can I say that these pictures don't already tell you. Our family has truely been blessed by the two most wonderful, beautiful, precious full of joy children we could have ever imagined. It will be one year on July 9th, next Wednesday, that we held Madelyn for the first time. It will be 7 years on July 19th at 9:03 pm that Joshua was put in our arms for the first time. What an amazing miracle children are, what an amazing God we have!

Joshua's Big Weekend

Getting ready to take a ride on this thing!
The "fan belt toss"......

Dad, we reallyyyyyy need one of these!

Better yet, I'll take this instead!
Daddy, Joshua and Grandpa Wright took a trip to Springfield this weekend for a 4-wheel drive show. The girls went shopping :)
Joshua told me that he liked getting to ride in a monster truck and liked seeing the big jeeps the best, since his daddy has one.
This weekend we are heading to Holiday World to camp and enjoy the water/theme park for a few days. Yes, we are always on the go but with our camper, our home goes with us, and we enjoy this family time alot!
Hope to have lots of great pics next week.....Mysty is way ahead of me so I must do some catching up!!!!!!!

Summer Fun

They were having so much fun swinging in Daddy's hammack.
Maddie & Joshua with friends Tyler and Megan. There is nothing more fun on a hot summer day than WATER GUN WARS!!!

The next phase of our backyard project. Matt is hard at it working on a food bar. It will have brick all around it and tall stools for the kids or adults to sit at.

Our backyard playground, Matt built this too and our kids and all the neighborhood kids like to congregate here, we love that :)

Yes, my handy man who can do anything husband built this patio too! We are going to screen it in this year....hopefully.
We love our backyard and just wanted to share with you some of our projects. Matt is a very hand on kinda guy who honestly can do just about anything he sets his mind to...he even did the concrete work and is now building the brick eating area and will begin the outdoor kitchen next. We are in the process of talking about putting in a pool, something we have talked about for a few years now. So we are building up the area in preparations for that. Maybe next year......:) Joshua says he wants to continue to go camping too so we have to figure out how we can do all of it, Maddie loves to swim and I think she could be our swimmer in the family!

Dress up Fun

It was almost 100 degrees outside today. I think Spring accidentially passed us by without stopping :( We decided it was a good Sunday afternoon to play inside! So out came some dress up clothes and the play make-up and jewelry and even Joshua liked to play along!

New look??!!

I should have taken this pic outside, I got scissor happy with Maddies hair and the end result a cute and cool "bob" for the summer, she looks so cute!
Joshua got a hair cut today to, but he won't let mommy touch his, he says he has to have his "barber" do his....sigh.....he is too big for his britches!

It's baseball time!

"Be-lated" Mothers Day Picture. We had a bad storm the night before mothers day so we had no power on that Sunday, had to wait until we were all looking "good" for a picture and I think this one turned out great!
Hitting Home Plate!

I just thought this one was so cute! Like her hair bows and her shirt? Had to go all the way to China to get that!

Like Joshua's expression on this one :)
