Zoo Days

The Zoo!
(another family first!)
Moses reaction to the snakes..
my thoughts, exactly, son...


The carousel was a favorite!


Intently watching "Raffie"

Elephants!
Another carousel ride to the end the day.
We came home and roasted hotdogs and s'mores over the fire.
So much fun.
(and this little guy LOVES roasted marshmallows!)
Summer, we're so glad you're here.

Marbles!

We have been eagerly waiting to take Moses to Marbles Children Museum. We finally had the perfect opportunity last week. So we packed up our little fam (and a friend) and headed out for an evening of fire truck rides, pirate ship adventures, pizza making, fishing, train playing...and so much more! It was a riot to see his imagination come alive.  Here are a few of my favorite pictures that captured our night out...

Call me "Prince"

Prince Fielder...meet your biggest fan. 

Batting practice happens daily...and it's complete with base running and a slide into "home ". All the while he summons to his crowd to cheer, "Go Prince, go!!!"

(A huge thanks to Aunt Mickey for the amazing jersey!!!!)

We're getting excited to take Moses to his first game at Comerica Park in July!!! 

In honor of him

We celebrated Father's Day the best way we know how...with friends, an ice cream cake, sparklers and lots of laughter.

What an honor (& pure joy) to watch James as a dad. We love you!!!

Sweet Summertime.

We are loving summer over here! For the first time in six years Jim is off from work for the summer (and I had the last week off!). We soaked in the rays, relaxed, and laughed a lot!

Here is a glimpse of our summer so far. Check back soon for pictures of Moses' first adventures to the children's museum AND the zoo!!!

Moses loves the water!

Fresh from our garden

Sweet moments before a mommy & moses run.

Early morning bike ride
After my mom passed away, I vowed to always plant a hydrangea bush (which were her favorite) in our yard, in her memory. 
The blooms were beautiful this year. 

Swimming at the YMCA. 
He's made incredible progress!

His favorite Tiger: Prince Fielder.
He now asks us to call him, "Prince" when he plays ball.
He practices batting and base running, a lot.
It's quite comical.
(Jim is so proud). 
Growing up so fast.

S'mores.

YES, summer is here!!!!
