We started our drive after Derek got off of work and we had plans to drive as far as we could until we got tired. So we made it to Virgina after driving through downpours of it rain and a couple different detours around 2:30 in the morning. This point the kids were all asleep but as soon as we stopped at the hotel for the night, all the kids woke up and wanted to know if we were at the beach. After a good nights rest we head out again and only had a few hours to go. We saw lots of mountains in the morning and here are so pictures. My favorite picture is of the Runaway Truck Ramps!

We had a new addition to our family. Derek's brother and his wife Kari had a little boy named Lucas. So for fun I had to take some pictures. Mekie just loves real babies. Over the past year she had no idea how to play with a baby doll but now she carries them all over! But when there is a real baby she gets so excited. She thought she was big stuff when she got to hold Lucas!

Still finding Mekie and Ethan sneaking into each others' rooms. And if you look closely at the picture you will find their hands together!
For Mother's Day we had doughnuts and we all built a birdbath with mosaic tiles. It turned out so good and it's in my flower bed.

Garrett had a great season! He was hitting off a pitching machine this year. From the first game to the last was a huge improvement. Every year gets more interesting to watch! It is so fun to see how every year he improves catching and hitting!
Daddy giving him a pep-talk before he hits!
Ash was not so sure about playing baseball this year but by the end he loved it. He was such a great hitter and has a rocket arm! He improved so much over the year. He didn't even know how to stand to hit a ball and by the end he was crushing the ball! Way to go Ash.
