Kane County Cougars

July 9th, 2011 No comments

For Christmas, Kate’s Uncle Bob got the whole family tickets to a Kane County Cougars game.  We had a great time.  They had a tent setup for us before the game with food and drinks and they we all sat together and watched the game.  After the game they let anyone who wants to come down to the field and run the bases.



Thanks Uncle Bob & Ruth!!

Rudy’s 6th Birthday

May 29th, 2011 No comments

Rudy turned 6 and just like last year he wanted his party in Michigan.  So we had most of the family head up for Memorial day weekend to do some boating and hanging out.  The weather could have been a little better but we had fun anyway.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s. We had a fun filled day. First we went to Nanny’s for breakfast and to hang out for awhile. Then we went to Aunt Allison’s house for dinner and play time with the cousins.

Here is a slideshow from the day:

My 1st Easter

April 13th, 2009 No comments

Kind of strange how I am more than 1 year old but I’m just now having my 1st Easter.  Just thought that was weird.  Anywho…Easter was a lot of fun, I got a bunch of gifts and got to watch three Easter Egg Hunts in one day.

My First Halloween

November 1st, 2008 No comments

My first Halloween was a very busy day- we had a party at the office, then Mom brought me and Rudy to visit Grandma at work (Aunt Allison, Emily, and Olivia were there too!), we went to visit Nanny, we went to see Papa and Uncle Bryan at work, and we went trick or treating- though I only made it four houses.  The most awkward part of my day was trick or treating at Papa’s- we had on the same outfit!  I was his Mini-Me!

Camping by the Lake

July 7th, 2008 No comments

Hello all.  Just had another great weekend.  This time we were up @ G-Ma’s cottage.  I saw some fireworks, went for boat rides, went tubing, slept in a tent and tried to go skiing but just drank a gallon of lake water instead.  I can’t wait to come back!!!

Happy Easter

March 24th, 2008 No comments

Happy Easter everyone!!!  What a cool holiday.  I got a whole lot of candy and money hidden in eggs.  We also colored eggs last night and I got to write my name on them.  Update on the new baby…Jackson Richard will be his name and he’ll be here in about a week.
