Photo Friday: Building a truck

Saturday, before we left Ft. Wayne to come back home, we got to go to Lowe's to build a truck. It was so much fun. Becca, Nathan, Wes & Allison all got to build a truck. It was a great morning with family. These are two pictures of the boys working with their tools. Wes and Becca wore their aprons until we were inside McDonald's for lunch. :)

Thanks to Lowe's (and Uncle Paul) for letting the boys have some other kits to work on at home, as well as a hammer for each of them to keep!

Dentist & a Date with Daddy

Yesterday was a big day for Nathan. He had his second dentist appointment. But this one was different on many levels.

First, we told him only he could go back when they called his name. Just like Mike did when he went a couple weeks ago. He was going to be a big boy and do it on his own.

Second, it was a different dentist than the first time around.

Third, it was only Mike and Nathan who went to the appointment.

Fourth, Nathan did everything so well. He did not even hesitate when Holly called his name. He just got up and walked back with her like a big guy. (It was a little hard for me (Mike) to just stay out in the waiting room and watch him go back)

Fifth, he did awesome. Yes, he was timid, but he didn't cry. He let them look in his mouth and did everything he was supposed to do. This was a vast improvement!

Afterward, he and I got to go out to eat. He picked McDonald's. It was a great lunch, I think the first time he and I have gone on a "date with daddy" and it was so cool. I hope he enjoyed it as much as I did. Then we went to Rural King to look at the toys.

Part of me is ready for him to grow up, so we can do more things like this - but the other part of me doesn't want him to get any bigger. I like him just the way he is.

Photo Friday: Christmas w/ the great grandparents

This is the last picture we had taken with Grandma. It was on Christmas Day. (I really like it)
