Marshall's Baptism and Daddy's Birthday Weekend

Its been a while...but my goal is once school is out to blog once a week...I am really going to try! The weekend of May 20th we headed to southern Illinois to celebrate Marshall's baptism. While we were down there, we enjoyed seeing our family and friends...we even headed to Eckerts and Brayden did a looking cooking class...and had some animal fun! Little Marshall was just happy as ever...as you can tell in his pictures. Our great friends Erin and Mike made the drive down...and we are so glad that they agreed to be Marshall's godparents. Here are some pictures from the weekend...
Me and the boys...
This weekend, Memorial Day weekend, was a great and VERY BUSY weekend... Little Marshall is a man on the go...he is crawling---belly up now---although he goes faster if he goes back to the army crawl. But he can now crawl up the stairs...watch out world! We also celebrate Aaron's birthday this weekend---we got him a MAN fridge for the garage. We did a TON of yard work...thank goodness the Jeffords were here to help...I am pretty sure we have filled 35 plus yard bags...and we still have more to do..... Aaron and his dad built a huge sandbox for the kids....Brayden LOVES it...Marshall is not sure yet...but I am sure it won't be long. We had a great weekend....even though--both---yes, BOTH kids are fighting Hand foot Mouth---I really HATE that stinkin' virus!
