Stoney Creek

We found a beautiful park called Stoney Creek.
On our first visit, we went for a bike ride on the path around the lake.
Then, we went and splashed in the lake to cool off.
The second time we went, we hiked through the woods.
The kids really like to hike. I can't believe how green everything is!
We were prepared with our swimming suits the second time to the park.
The whole family had fun taking a dip in the lake.
We bought a year pass, so we plan on a lot more hiking and biking.

My Baby is 1 now!

We had a very fun birthday party for Cody. I can't believe my baby is not a baby anymore! The neighbors grandaughter wanted to celebrate with us. Denton and Julia had fun teaching Cody what opening birthday presents is all about. Cody is a sweet little boy. He likes to play with his big brother and sister and make growling noises at them. He can army crawl anywhere he wants to go now. He has no interest in walking or even standing. He loves his little walker that allows him to tag along with mommy a little easier. He's even tall enough he can pull things off of the table when he sneaks into the kitchen in his walker when no one is looking. Cody has 7 teeth now. He will eat just about anything I give him. He has a special little personality that makes anyone around him smile. WE LOVE YOU CODY BEAR!!!

Happy Independence Day!

The picture above is of Julia and her friend Jasmyne.
Sunday night, we sat with our neighbors in their back yard to watch the fireworks in the easement.
It is illegal to have fireworks that go up in the sky, but it isn't inforced,
so everyone drives a few hours to Ohio and buys professional grade fireworks
and lights them off in the easement.
We had fun watching the fireworks, and eating popcycles.

Saturday night, we went to a BBQ at our friends house with 4 other couples.
There was an OB/Gyn resident, a general surgery resident, a podiatrist resident
a podiatrist, and Brandon, traditional resident...
and all of the wives.
It was fun to watch the guys having so much fun lighting the fireworks.
I think they had more fun than the kids did.
Denton and Julia made a lot of new little friends.
