Meet Johnny Appleseed...

We took Hans out to the golf course the other day. It's a really fun family outing for us. Hans is so intrigued with everything that Tom and I are actually able to play a few holes with him. He loves playing on the golf cart and when he tires of that, he hops out and sets up his own tee and does a little golf practicing.

And when he tires of that, we pick some apples on the course and he has a snack.

We love our trips to the golf course together!

Treasures

One man's trash is another man's treasure..

Today, I'm thankful for big brothers and sisters that give us clothes and toys that their kids no longer use. And, I'm thankful for neighbors that give away perfectly good climbing cubes/slides. We've been so blessed with many "treasures"!

Hans is now 19 months old! We've been having a great time together. With trips to the park, playdates with friends, trips to the cabin, and swimming almost every week, Hans has been keeping pretty busy! He's talking more and more and trying to copy almost every word we say.
The other morning when he woke up he said "Daee?" and I said, "Daddy's at work."
Hans replied, "Daee, golf.".
He's so adorable and just loves his Mommy and Daddy!
He loves to play golf, read books, play with his trucks, cars, and fish, and pretty much run all over the place! We love the energy he continues to develop. He is a sweet boy with a kind heart. We love you, Hans, our little Big boy!

Sorry we're lacking in posts lately, we've been too busy soaking up as much summer as we can!

Cabin and Hans at breakfast

Last Sunday we went up to Tom's cabin (not to be confused with 'uncle tom's cabin') for the day. It was hot and sunny. A perfect day to be out on the water....and IN the water!

Hans had fun with Grandpa!

Hans has no fear of the water. Whether it be a pool, pond, or lake...he will just head straight to the water!

Hans also enjoyed some fun talks on the deck with GG..

Tom took him for a fourwheeler ride which he loved. He drove him over to a farm to see some cows. Hans and the cows had a lot of fun "moo-ing" back and forth.

The day went by fast and we all had a lot of fun!


I'll leave you with a short video of Hans and me talking together at breakfast this morning. Lately he has been so chatty and we love it. He is repeating a lot of things we say and identifying things he knows around him all day long.
