My husband had the crazy idea to put together this video. It is our entire church staff and pretty funny. Happy Thursday!

"fun" at the park

one day last weekend we decided to go to the park to play after Hudson got up from his afternoon nap.

we knew it would be hot but didn't think it would be that bad. When we pulled up the park was empty. That should have been clue #1.

It was so blasted hot. And the mosquitos were swarming so so bad.

Hudson had fun though. And enjoyed eating rocks in the tunnel.

He got pretty excited when he found one too.

We pulled out of the parking lot less than 10 minutes from when we pulled in. That included the time it takes to get Hudson in and out of his carseat. Needless to say we will wait until it cools off to head back to the park.  :)

Hudson's new trick

First of all...Happy Birthday to my sweet brother, Mark! We love you and can't wait to see you soon!

Hudson has figured out how to climb up onto the fireplace. He will sit here for a few minutes and then scoot off. The first time he climbed up there he was SO proud of himself!

afternoon movie

last week John and Hudson watched "Despicable Me" together. Hudson sat and watched the first 20ish minutes on the couch with John and then would play and continue to watch it. Then he sat down for the last 10ish minutes. I was surprised by how into the movie he was!

In Hudson's 13 month post I mentioned that one of the things he is doing these days is spitting. I got it on camera a few days ago so here's what I'm talking about.

He takes a drink of water from his sippy cup.

And then spits it out. By the time he is finished he is drenched!

Action shot!

His adorable outfit is Pumpkin Butter Kids.

these are the moments

these are the moments

I thank God that I'm alive

These are the moments

I'll remember all my life

I've found all I've waited for

And I could not ask for more.

fashion show

Last night my Tuesday night bible study group got to go to a fashion show fundraiser for a local women's business network.

It was so much fun getting dressed up and spending a kid-free evening out with my sweet friends.

When we parked, a limo picked us up to take us to the door. 3 out of the 5 of us in this picture are 6+ months pregnant so imagine us scooting our way in and out of a limo. Ha!

We enjoyed the dinner and dessert so much. It was so much fun laughing and talking all night!

Hudson made too many cute faces during our photo shoot on Thursday so I had to share the rest...enjoy!

Hudson cleans up

Hudson loves to stack his toys on tables and chairs. He also loves to empty something (a purse, toy basket, diaper bag, kitchen cabinet) and then put everything back in. He gets so focused and he is very careful to make sure what he is placing somewhere, stays there.

John got this video of him yesterday and he is doing just that. I wish you could see his face when he is putting the toys on the table. He is so careful to make sure they don't fall off.

summer music camp

We've had a fun week this week at Summer Music Camp. This was my first year to be able to help out. Last year Hudson was only 6 or 7 weeks old and all the years before I was working. I was excited to be a part of it this year.

I worked with arts and a couple of days the little ones got to come in and help with the backdrop. This was Hudson's first time doing an art project. :)

In 1 week the kids learn (memorize) an entire musical and create their own backdrop and props for the performance. We had 211 kids this year so it was quite an undertaking.

John did a great job! He is so good with kids. It rained pretty much all week but on Wednesday we lost power for about 2 hours. John was a quick thinker and had a mass rehearsal with the kids in the courtyard. 

I loved my group that I worked with this week. They are all such great friends of mine so we had so much fun together.

Hudson with Erin before the performance on Friday night.

Hudson and Landry looking so cute in their mini camp t-shirts!

All of the campers were supposed to wear their t-shirts with jeans. Hudson's jeans were a size 6-12 month. They fit fine everywhere except the length. :)

Hudson and me with Amanda and Landry. We are going to miss them so much when they move in a few weeks!

Hudson had quite the following after the performance Friday night. He loves the stairs so he had some of the older kids crawling with him. :)

Here you can see the art project the kids completed this week. At music camp they do not do any take home craft projects. Instead they create the backdrop and props for the performance. The musical they did this year was "Good Kings Come in Small Packages" which is the story of King Josiah. My favorite part of the backdrop is the huge crown hanging above the kids. 

We had a great week but it was very exhausting!
