We are so PROUD of you, Nathan!!!

Sam recently got an email from Nathan. He has signed with the Navy. Nathan is just now finishing his second year or med school and is going into his rotations. Nathan, Annie, and the girls will be close to us for the next 2 years. We are so thankful for that. I'm not sure of all the details of when he'll go with the Navy or for how long, but we are so excited for them and the decision they made.

Besides the financial perks, I keep thinking of the service Nathan will be to all our our soldiers when they are in need. I don't know if you know this, but the Marines don't have their own doctors, they use the Navy doctors. Our son-in-law, Corey, is in the Marines. That makes me even more thankful and proud of the choice Nathan has made to serve his country and our own family.

Congratulations, Nathan!!!! We are so proud of you!!!

Sprinkler Day

Today was the first day Cade went out and played in the sprinkler.
He loved every minuted of it. He wasn't shy one bit about getting wet or the water spraying him.

However, when it came time to get him out, he was not a happy, wet camper. He cried and cried.
. . . and then he cried some more. Katy finally was able to get him changed into some dry clothes.
We finally had to close the door and window blinds so he could not see the sprinkler running in the front yard. What a cutie!!!

Grandpa, Brayden, and Ice Cream

Becky brough Brayden over for us to see one night. We've really been going through withdrawal since they moved out. Brayden was hungry and we treated him to ice cream from Macey's. 
Brayden took his time with each and every lick. He didn't want to bite into the ice cream at all.

Then he discovered the cone. I think he liked the cone more than the ice cream. It was funny watching him try to the just the cone.
Grandpa went to throw the left overs away and Brayden was off like a shot following him. He even balanced on the curb all the way down just like Grandpa.
Brayden is no baby anymore. He's only 2 1/2, but he's as big as most 4 years olds. He has the longest fingers.
"Catch me Grandpa."
