Push-pop Date

What did I ever do before the endless pb&j's, 
push-pop date nights, 
and rock throwing days?
(But seriously)

 Pretty sure life was not near as fun before you Mr. Ry-Man!

Last night we had a push-pop date on the driveway while throwing rocks,
and working on our colors,
 by shouting out the color of the car as it slowly drove past.

Ryan's kind of night. :)

Ry and I rock the "duo" lately while Aaron studies his life away.
(The Bar is in ONE week from today- and OH MY GOSH am I ready to have my husband back!)

Thanks to this love boat for being my 24/7 sidekick.
Goodness I love him.

  1. He is the cutest little thing! So excited for you to have your husband back soon! yay!

  2. My little boy is almost 9 and I remember these days of him being my first born and all that time that he gets you all to himself. You think you treasure them now, just wait until you look back on this post in 7 or 8 years. This is so special that you blog and keep the memories alive. :-)

  3. You are such a cute mom to that adorable little boy! I bet he just adores you!


  4. my husband and i were just saying the same thing last night... i could tell you what i did before carter came along, but life was SO boring, right?! you really seem to be giving ryan a magical childhood, i know he loves and cherishes his mama so much!

    your pictures are always so gorgeous. if you don't mind me asking, do you use a particular camera that you love or do you have awesome photo editing skills or what? i'm thinking of asking for a new camera for christmas since mine is just okay quality and doesn't take pictures near fast enough to catch the sweet faces carter makes!

  5. I love him so much it hurts!!!

  6. New follower here! Such a cute blog! Can't wait to read along!

  7. First of all adorable! second of all what kind of camera do you use??

  8. Oh my goshhhhhh, he is the CUTEST! Those eyes! Can't get over it. Bear and I can relate; we have lots of DumDum dates! :)
