Boys will be boys!

Dan and I took the boys to The Arboretum last weekend. It was a hot day and the boys loved playing in the rock river. It was a great way for them to cool off and they had a blast doing it.

Here is my handsome boyfriend. He wasn't paying attention to me so I snapped his picture. He loved being outside too. Grown up boys are still boys!
Here the boys are moving rocks to stop the water from flowing. They had a blast but they never really figured out how to stop it. It was funny watching them play. By the time they got out of the water they were soaked but cooled off.
Jacob wanted me to stop taking his picture. I guess I was interrupting his fun!

How cute are these boys? I am a lucky girl. I have a beautiful son and Dan brought Christian (what a cutie) into my life as well. I have all that I could ever want.

Here they are hanging from the tree top ropes. They have this whole Swiss Family Robinson tree thing at the Arboretum. They boys ran through it at least a dozen times.

I love when we have amazing days like this. Jacob and Christian would play video games all day if we let them. So getting them outside and not having them complain once is a feat in itself.

On a side note .... Before I met Dan I always said (to anyone who would listen) I would never date a guy who was divorced or had a child. I thought it would be too complicated since I have a baby daddy and a son myself. Then two years after Dan and I started working together, he took me out and we have been together ever since. God works in mysterious ways. He brought Dan and Christian into my life and I couldn't be more thankful.


  1. It looks like you had a wonderful day! And God has blessed you so! It is funny how we think we know what is best for us. But really He is the One who knows everything including how our lives would be made completely enjoyed.

  2. Those boys are adorable and little monkeys I can tell! I just read your Father's Day post and cried all the way through it. I'm just so glad you found the love of your Heavenly Daddy and let him hold you and wipe away your tears. His love is amazing!

  3. Hi! It looks like they had a great time. And I love that God brought you just what you needed!
