The Party... Reception in Lynden June 1

We celebrated our wedding again with a fabulous wedding party on the first of June in Lynden. We had a wonderful time! We are so thankful for all of you who were able to celebrate with us. Now that we feel we have had two separate weddings were are finally able to just settle into Baseball games and movie watching. Yipeee! The reception pictures are on my Mac Gallery, click here.  Thank you to all my dear friends who helped set up, sew, hang lanterns, cook, grill, etc... Thanks to Naomi Jenkins for taking the great pictures and Carole Burton and Stephanie Zerbst for all the amazing help in the kitchen! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I feel like I should be handing out gold statues or something. Believe me if I had some, I would! I would of never been able to pull off that party with out my dear friends! Awesome!

Batter Up!

Okay... this is fun. Sitting on the bleachers at Ethan's baseball games is more fun than soccer. So it was music to our ears to hear "I am way done with soccer!" from Ethan. Joe really helped Ethan catch the baseball bug!

First Father's Day...

We celebrated my cute husbands first fathers day at the Mariners game on Saturday night. I could not ask for more, Joe is an amazing dad. I feel so blessed that he is the one who will have such a contribution to our kids lives. He is teaching them a lot about all areas of life including baseball. Ethan's first ever game is tomorrow night. I for one and Ethan for two can't wait!  We desperately needed just the right person to teach these two little boys how to grow into godly young men. With their new dad they are definitely on the right track. When I arrived at baseball practice tonight after a work meeting I found Joe and Ethan playing catch and Isabelle sitting at Joe's feet. She has really attached and loves to spend time with her daddy. And check out the most perfect card EE and I found.... :) Happy Father's Day Baby!

We just happened to go on Dad's night, the first thing after we walked in the gate they handed Joe a Mariners Dad tee shirt... Coool.  Free stuff is always fun. It will be a fun way to remember his first big day. I'm pretty sure it won't be Joseph sporting the new flip flops from the wife! "they would be okay if it was not for that thing between my toes..." -Joe Mason

Baby Kangaroo

Just when I think I can't take it anymore.  You know with all the working, laundry, deciphering school paperwork, dinner making, child back talking,  impending summer entertain three kids all day kick- off and so on and so forth...  Jack comes up with this: "Mom, I wish I was a baby kangaroo and you had a pouch." 
In one second it makes it all worth while, thanks Jack.

Back to Fantasy life for a second....

I forgot to blog Disneyland!!!! (aka) The day I cried all day... This was two days after our wedding and we got to go to Disneyland with my mom and dad my sister and my nephew Joseph. I was so happy I didn't know what to do with myself. I kept looking around and thinking wow, we are a family. We had the best time with my parents, everything from the over priced food to the magical parade was perfect! For us it really may have been the happiest place on earth!!! For the Disneyland slideshow... click here.

The Disney parade was seriously amazing, we all loved it! 

This moment even got 'new dad' all choked up... Isabelle was so in the moment she was signing 'I love you' to all the princesses. It was so adorable! 

Alice in Wonderland... if you know isabelle you know she has probably watched this movie 1000 times, the look on her face when we saw the teacups was the best! 

My mom and my nephew Joseph.
Smiling for Grandpa! 

Our first family picture, notice I'm a little rough around the edges, that's what a day of happy crying will do to you!!!
