Ryan the gamer!

Cheesing for the camera. 
I wonder what this button does. 

Ryan likes to stand with his hands behind his back like
a little old man.  

Ry and Jake pretending to race.  Ry could barely hang on. :o)

Fun on the Water! 
This year we stayed home for vacation. 
We rented a boat at Alum Creek Reservoir for the afternoon
and went tubing. 
Hubba Hubba
Ryan sporting the shades! 

Olivia getting ready to tube.
She's a little scared at the moment.  

Ethan on the tube.

Olivia going for a ride.

Ry and I hanging out while everyone cooled off in the water.
Ryan didn't know what to think of the life vest and being on the
water do he sat perfectly still almost the whole time.  

Ryan finally exploring around the boat.

The way he says glasses is so cute.

Mc Dazzle
Our friends Steve and Val Thatcher invited us to a 
charity event for the Ronald McDonald House in Lexington, KY.
Here we are posing with Ronald himself.  
He was actually really funny.

We recently went out of town and had to stay in a hotel. 
As we were leaving the room I told everyone not to go out empty handed 
because we were only making one trip. 
Everyone loaded up except Ryan. 
The next thing you know he is getting mad because he doesn't 
have anything to carry.  We gave him the 2 smallest things to carry. 
He grunted the whole time he walked to the car.
He also would say heavy.  There was nothing in either one of these bags.  :o)
Ryan following his big brother. 

Isn't that cute?

He is concentrating really hard.

Helping load the truck.

In case you are wondering I always have my point and shoot camera in my purse.
I don't like missing a photo opportunity.  :o)

Today is Jill's Birthday!  
On my birthday she posted some old pictures of me.  
I thought it would be a good idea to return the favor.  
Enjoy the pictures!

Jill, senior year, 1989.

Loving the prom dress!  And how about those gloves?

Band uniform

Mom had made us matching bicentennial outfits that year to wear to
 church on the 4th of July.

Ethan and Olivia went to the Corvette Plant in Bowling Green, KY
with their grandparents (Roger and Alicia, Scott's parents).
Ethan was picked to start a corvette that just came off the line.
He was the first one to sit in it, start it, and honk the horn of course.  
I bet he was on cloud nine. 
He loves fast and shiny cars!

  He just woke up and he is ready to go.
