Jacob is 5!

Saturday night Jacob prayed for our dinner.  He said " Dear God, thank you for this beautiful dinner.  Thank you that mommy knows how to make such great food.  Please help for this beautiful day, Amen!"
Granted we were having hamburgers, fruit salad, and chips, but  is that not the sweetest sound to a mother's ear?

On Sunday morning, Jacob asked Jay to wear his blue and white shirt to church- that way they could be the same.  I personally thought it was one of the cutest things ever!  What a challenge and encouragement that he wants to be just like his daddy (in every way right down to the clothes!)
Today, Jacob is 5!  He is such a precious addition to our family.  He is so thoughtful and kind.  So easy to be with and around! 

He has the greatest laugh (even cracks himself up sometimes!)
I am so thankful for this little boy and the joy that he brings to our family every day!  Happy Birthday, Jacob!

Summer Fun!!

Here is just a tiny glimpse of what we've been doing this summer.  I love this time with my kids and am sad that it is going by so quickly!!
We went to pick peaches and also went to the orchard where they grow blueberries and black berries! We couldn't pick the berries because of an upcoming festival, but I may take them back one day. 

This kitty was the highlight of the day! 
we spent a week in Pensacola- made it down before the oil hit
one night after dinner we stopped to play on the beach

he LOVED standing on the balcony watching the boats and beautiful sunsets!
one morning we woke up to this- it was one of the most beautiful and amazing things I've ever seen. 
The view from the condo includes the bay/sound on the right and the gulf on the left.  The ends of the rainbow were in both and it looked so close.
This is Mr. Big Stuff's new bike ( I think he looks so tiny on it, especially with that helmet!)

bowling to celebrate good character and wise decisions throughout the school year.
I love Jacob's little happy dance!!

hope you are enjoying your summer...
