We heard of this great Regional Park, just 15 minutes from our house. It is the best place ever to camp—we loved it! We went with some great friends and had so much fun we are going back in a few weeks. Here are some pictures of the kids at the amazing water park!

Madie at 2 years and 2 months weighs 34 pds and is 36 inches tall. Not on any of the charts—not surprising, have you seen the size of her feet? They are nearly as big as Reagan’s (who is 2 1/2 years older).
Lincoln is 4 months. He weighs 16 and a half pounds and is 27 inches long. He is in the 97 percentile for height and only the 75 percentile for weight—huh? All Sage babies, thus far, have always been “off the charts” and when I asked the Dr. if I needed to feed him more because he was so small, she just looked at me. It looks like we may be beginning a new era…

Jackson has turned out to be quite the reader—we weren’t sure, at first, he didn’t seem too interested. In order to get him reading, we had to create our own little “Perfect Storm”—Where, a reader (old palm pilot), a special bedtime (1/2 hour past his bedtime), and Harry Potter all collided to spark the interest of a little boy. He has finished all of the Roald Dahl books (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, BFG, etc) and is now on chapter ten of Harry Potter. Way to go Jackson (coming from a proud mama)! If anyone has some great book suggestions for a youth reader—please let me know! We are always on the look out.

For Matts birthday this year he got a tie, hat, and shirt—all things he needs—such a practical guy (or maybe his wife, who picked them all out, is the practical one ).
Here are some pictures of him at his birthday party with his family:
Lincoln with grandpa, checking out the amazing birthday candle that was on Matt’s cake—it looked and sounded like fireworks and in the end popped out a spinning flower candle—super cool!

Lincoln turned 4 months on May 12th. He is so adorable! I haven’t taken him in for his shots yet (so I don’t know his stats), but he is now giggling, trying to roll over, has this adorable belly laugh, and his two bottom teeth are trying to peek through. Here are some pictures of him at 4 months with his Aunt Weeze and Grandpa:
Isn’t he a doll? Love this little man in his tie.
For some reason, we didn’t get any pictures of the easter egg hunts our kids did this year (it might have something to do with we are outnumbered 4 to 2—and really, Lincoln counts for two since he is a newborn—so 5 to 2 ). So, here are just a couple of pictures of our kids dying eggs:
Yes, madie is exhausted—it was a long day of activities—including baseball game, baseball party, easter egg hunt—I think it was 8pm before we began dying eggs…
On conference weekend, Matt’s mom, dad, brothers and sisters had a birthday dinner for Madie.
She got a stroller and carrier for her dolls and two beautiful dresses.
Her Aunt Sharon made her a beautiful pink flower cake and she loved having everyone sing to her.
I can’t believe how fast she is growing up! She looks like such a little lady in these pictures! We love u little Madie!
