Oh yes that's right... it's me that's been gone for a week.

So it seems summer is busier than I thought it would be. Thankfully, we are all feeling better now so we can enjoy all the coming and going that's been happening. Between out-of-town guests, family pictures, snuggling a newly born baby, and a few other things thrown in, our days are flying by.

So fast in fact that I still have not gotten any strawberries this year. I know I'm on the edge of being too late for them so I must grab some this week to stock up on homemade jam for the year. I think the raspberries are here too and the blueberries are next but I'm trying not to think about them just yet. We already had to forgo our veggie garden this year and I really don't want to miss out on having local berries in my freezer this winter.

The weather has been very hot but it's such a nice change from a few weeks ago that we don't mind it. We've been playing outside and inside and enjoying it all when we get a chance to rest.

Sawyer's found a new love: yogurt. Plain, whole milk, yogurt to be exact. With a splash of stevia to sweeten it, a bit of cod liver oil for his brain and a sprinkle of probiotics for good digestion. And he's adamant about using his own spoon.

This is Ian's favorite way to eat yogurt too. Of course, adding in some granola and those berries I'll get someday and we're in summer heaven.

Looking at Ian playing with Star Wars toys, with General Lee in the background, I am pretty sure he is Conn through and through. Bo and Luke Conn really enjoyed their Star Wars. I love Sawyer's yogurt covered expression. He is such a sweetie. Love you boys. Grandpa

What a couple of cuties! :D I found myself actually eyeing the hot wheels cars and wondering if the boys would ever want to play in the dirt with their old Aunt Shel making towns and racing cars the next time they come to visit!?!?! My brother and I loved to play with our hot wheels!

Chase's favorite snack is yogurt, granola and berries! I'll have to show the boy's the pic of Ian playing...they have the same Star Wars toys so they will think it's pretty cool!
