First Day of School!

Yesterday (7/23) Caleb started Kindergarten! I can't believe my baby is growing up! He was such a sweetie and really excited to go. He couldn't wait to get his backpack on! He loves riding the bus to school too. It's fun because it comes right up to our house. He starts bright and early at 7:45am and gets home at 3:30pm every day. It's quite a schedule change for Caleb but it will be really good for him. He has great teachers who love him already. We're so proud of you Caleb!

A week in Utah!

About 2 weeks ago (July 9th to be exact) we flew up to American Fork, Utah to spend time with my grandparents and family. We had a wonderful time. The boys loved riding on the plane and spending lots of time with their Great Grandparents. We did lots of fun things like driving up the American Fork canyon, having picnics, playing in the streams, eating lots of great food from my grandpa's garden and enjoying the nice weather.

The boys also enjoyed feeding grass to a horse right from my grandpa's neighbor's yard. Of course, that day I forgot my camera! Good one Kari!

I also got to visit the house where I lived as a little toddler. It was fun to see where I grew up as a little one. This was my parents first house. Good times!

Thank you to my Grandparents for letting us come visit. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to come back!

Our Caleb

Just wanted to say a little tid-bit about how much I love this boy! Caleb really is the sweetheart of our family and creates an atmosphere of happiness around him.
Even though I can barely capture a smile on camera, he truly is the happiest boy always!

He's doing the "peek-a-boo" pose in this bottom picture. What a cutie!

Favorite 4th of July Pics!

Here's a few of our family pictures we took over the 4th of July holiday. What can I say, I just love to look at pictures of my family!

Our Independence Day!

Our 4th of July was GREAT! We were able to go to the cabin and we all had a great time! Caleb & Gunner loved spending time with their grandparents and having live-in playmates, their cousins Annalise & Ava!

They had a lot of fun feeding the ducks, playing outside, riding on the Hummdinger, and especially playing in the beautiful streams of Greer.

The Circus

Alright, it's been way to long since I've "blogged" about our family! So, bear with me while I catch up on everything that has been going on.

On June 28th, we went to the Circus! I had never been before and since Justin was out of town, I took my mom and we had a blast! The boys loved the elephants, tigers, horses and the clowns! What was especially fun was we got to go down on the floor and meet some of the characters before the circus started. The boys enjoyed watching the clowns in action and got up close to a very large elephant.

Gunner has been talking about elephants ever since! He's obsessed! It's so fun to see my kids get excited. It makes it all worth it.

I put this video together late last night. This is for Caleb & Gunner's grandparents who wanted to see them during their swim lessons. Enjoy!

Sweet Caleb

Here's my first born as cute as can be. We came home from church and he was laughing at any little sound I made, so I thought I'd capture some of our fun on film. This little boy truly makes my heart happy.

Alright, no comments on how dorky I sound! Motherhood makes you do silly things!

P.S. This is my first time posting one of these videos. Sorry that it's side-ways. I tried and tried to get it to turn the right way but was unsuccessful. If any of you can tell me how, let me know!
