Mugging for the camera over Christmas dinner

We missed being able to go apple picking when we lived in California...definitely a perk of being back in Ohio!

Visiting a pumpkin patch is a "must-do" each fall. This year's patch had a hayride, which was fun, though bumpy!

wedding

Maya and her siblings at her brother’s wedding. The sun came out just before pictures, but it was freeeeezing cold!

hand dryer birthday cake

Maya loves to make birthday cakes for the boys’ birthdays. For his 3rd birthday, Miles requested a hand dryer cake. Maya did her best!

kids eating smores

S’mores are always a hit at the end of one of our summer cookouts! Dad’s seasoned corn on the cob is popular, too.

Scrambler Marie's

Miles REALLY wanted to eat at this restaurant near his grandparents’, so we got the whole extended family together for New Year’s Eve breakfast.

Boy in Chicago fountain

Summer 2012 we went to Chicago. Miles begged to see water fountains, so he and Mark spent an afternoon running around the city, taking pictures at as many fountains as possible (14!).

silly faces

Julian never tires of taking silly pictures with Mommy’s camera phone!

camping

Miles decided that a backyard campout with Daddy was a necessary part to his summer. They camped out on the deck for a few hours before both deciding their beds indoors were more comfy, haha.

toddler and cat

During family pictures, Julian insisted we snap one with him and Oliver. He views our cat as his personal pillow, and Oliver is sweet enough to oblige…most of the time, anyway!

duck face

We’re basically pros at making the duck face.

kid playing in snow

We get a lot of snow up here. In fact, we had a real blizzard the day after Christimas. It was the boys’ first time playing in the snow and they LOVED it!

Becket & Castle costume

Maya convinced Mark to humor her, and we went as Kate Beckett and Richard Castle, from the show Castle, for Halloween this year.

Star Trek Halloween costumes

Speaking of Halloween, one year Mark convinced Maya we should dress as Commander Riker & Deanna Troi from Star Trek. Mark even decorated our car for our church’s Trunk or Treat! We’re nerds.
