Sweet Treats

Truffles

My boys went on an adventure one recent morning, and stopped by Cocoa Safari in Madison, Indiana. I got an assortment of truffles that I’ve been enjoying all week.

We’re already planning a trip here the next time family comes up for a visit!

P.S. Yes, that is an ironing board and iron in the back ground…I had to stop ironing to take a picture of these two sweet fellas.

We are in the throes of teething, and Aunt Meagan was sweet enough to send us some teething toys this week.

Yesterday we went on an adventure over in southern Indiana in search of the James Covered Bridge. It was built back in 1887.

It’s a little one-way bridge that you definitely have to be looking for to find. And since yesterday was such a lazy, rainy day we thought a ride might would be nice.

So thanks to Deek’s driving and good old Google Maps we were able to take a nice scenic tour!

Judson fell asleep right when we got there, so Daddy had to take him back to the car. We love Saturday adventures.

P.S. Thanks to Aunt April for telling us about this place!

Last night our good friend Lauren H. dropped this little sweet treat off at the house. Fresh blackberry and cream cheese cupcakes (and they were delicious)! They were accompanied by a kind little note.

It’s funny to think that a little cupcake can bring up so many feelings of gratitude. Deek and I are blessed with great families, but we’re also fortunate to have such good friends every where we’ve lived.

Thanks, Henderson's!

Judson & the Monkey

One day a couple of weeks ago Deek and I took Judson into a local toy shop just to look around. Judson is becoming so interested in everything around him, and we thought he would have fun.

We found the perfect toy!

We look at everything from Elmo to dinosaurs…but this little monkey was the winner.

We're making a break for it!

So this is his newest favorite toy…right next to his puppy and tractor.

Today marks Judson’s four month birthday! He weighs 17 pounds and is 25 inches long.

Hi, guys.
Hi, guys.

We’ve had a busy few weeks filled with Vacation Bible School, the Carter’s coming for a visit, and just your every day new adventures!

I really liked when Aunt April, Uncle Greg, Slayten & Carsen Jane came to play!

He loved the Carter’s! Aunt April, Uncle Greg, Slayten and Carsen Jane came up for a weekend trip just last week.  We showed them a few of our favorite spots, but I think their favorite place was Judson’s nursery playing with this little man. He thought that they would do!

We had so much fun!
We had so much fun!

He is eating between 4 and 6 ounces every few hours, and loves his toys. If he’s ever a little fussy we just plop a different toy in front of him or take him outside to look around. Works like a charm!

These past few months have flown by, and have been the best of mine and Deek’s life.  Judson is our very favorite adventure.

In case you want to travel down memory lane…

Sunday Morning Duds

Ready for church!
Ready for church!

This little boy has no shortage of clothes, and as fast as he’s growing we usually get one good wear out his church outfits.

Hi!
Hi!

This morning we went with our golfing attire.  Like most little boys, Judson doesn’t really care what he’s wearing as long as you hurry up and dress him.  He doesn’t like to be still for very long, and if you’re being too slow he will let you know it.

Is there anything cuter than a little boy in blue seersucker…

Dressed and ready to go!

and a bow tie…with a hat? I think not.

Happy Sunday! I'm off for my tee time now.

Front Porch Progress

When Judson took his morning nap last Saturday I rushed outside to do a little fertilizing and pruning on my front porch flower.

I just like to document their progress so I snapped a few pictures too.

I finished just in time! The little boy was up after a quick cat nap, and then we were ready to play.
