This one will be long! Many end of school year activities and a weekend vacation with just Ezra.

Was able to go on another field trip to the same place with Ezra this time

Mari had a field day at school

The boys’ school had a color run to celebrate the end of Mileage Club, it was a mile loop and I think Ezra did it at least 4 times (then had a 2 hour baseball game that night-the boy NEVER tires!)

End of soccer season for Tobin, we had a party at the park after the last game

Why ice cream, of course, for my birthday


On the last day of school (half day), a mom (I had never met) invited Ezra to the art institute downtown. We decided that we would all go, and we’re friends now–I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t have let her son go with me either;)  I had wanted to take the kids for some time but just never made it a priority, we all really enjoyed it!

The very next day, we took Tobin to Pathfinder weekend at Camp, last year, Kelly & I stayed at Aunt Faye & Uncle Al’s condo with just Marian since the boys were both at Camp.  This time, we arranged for Marian to stay with my sister for the weekend to play with cousin Alyssa so we could just hang with Ezra.  I think we’ll try to make something work for Tobin this coming summer.

We stopped at one of our favorite state parks and they just happened to be giving archery lessons-SWEET!

I must apologize, there are ALOT of pictures of Ezra to follow, there were just too many good “shooting” locations, and while I LOVE all these, I was just a little bummed that I don’t have similar ones to display of the missing children;)

Mmmm, cherry pie


Watching the sunset


This awesome yellow brick wall was outside the brewery we ate dinner at, there it was staring at me during dinner, the golden light beautiful outside, I just couldn’t take it anymore and had to drag Ez out there!

And, who can resist beach images!

LOVE his freckles

We even biked about 10 miles


It was really a sweet time with just the 3 of us:)

Saturday night we made a fire and had s’mores with Kathie, Jack & Adeline


And, this blown out image is what happens when you forget to change the settings from shooting in near darkness the night before:(  Tobin & Kash had a super fun time140615_PathfinderWeekend_310

And, more baseball (I confess even I was tiring of by the end of June)


Check out this sequence of Ezra . . . fielding the ball


touching 3rd only for him & the runner to realize it wasn’t a force


Ezra trying to run him down


Almost got him


Got him


It’s a good thing Ezra was faster than him because “pickle” is not something the coaches worked on, everyone was just watching and nobody was on 2nd or 3rd base to catch him.

And, lastly, a Junior Explorer hike.  The leader had a presentation that had something for nearly each letter of the alphabet — our kids came up with the letters she was missing;)

This is the boys practicing their American Ninja Warrior Skills.


A good month!  Next up . . . Camp!


What wonderful pictures! I love the soccer pic of Tobin and the black and white of Ezra. Miss you <3
