Picking Blueberries

We went at the beginning of July to a local farm to pick blueberries.  We met a family from Indianapolis there that Brian knew so the boys had fun playing with their kids after they got bored (or full) picking berries.  Jack had fun picking the blueberries and trying to fill up his bucket--Dustin on the other hand didn't get 1 blueberry into his bucket because they went straight into his mouth.  I finally cut him off because I was afraid he was going to get sick.  We ended up picking 4 pounds of berries!  We now have a freezer full of blueberries!!

We found out that day that Samuel loves blueberries as well.  He was in his stroller eating cheerios and I looked over at one point and the little girl from the family we were with was putting blueberries straight into his mouth.

Busy Busy

Here are some pictures that I have taken around here the past couple weeks.  We have had some beautiful weather so we have been spending time playing outside.  Since we got home from our trip a couple weeks ago Samuel has started crawling and is quite the mover now!  He is just about to start pulling up on things as well.  He is into EVERYTHING!  Jack and Dustin are so helpful though to let me know when he has something he is not supposed to--usually because it is something of theirs.  It is so hard to believe that Samuel is almost 1 and Jack is almost 5!!

our big boy who is almost 11 months old--so crazy

now that he is mobile he is into everything

our 3 boys

Samuel having a snack outside

Have I mentioned he really loves to eat?

he was trying to crawl to me (I moved off the blanket) and this is the face after he touched the grass

another great face

now that is better (scooted back on the blanket)

sweet smile

trying to get my camera--he was almost standing up to get to it
he looks so old here

can't get enough of those blue eyes

I told you :)

playing in the water table

they could stand there and play for hours

Camping Trip Take 2

For their second camping trip of the summer, Brian took the boys to Turkey Run State Park which is about an hour and a half away. As you can see in the pictures it is a really cool park. It is hard for me to believe that all that is in Indiana :).

their campsite--very different from their first one
cute boys

Summer at Purdue

These are some pictures from the beginning of summer that I took while we were up walking around Purdue one night.  The boys love to go up on campus and run around!

First Camping Trip

Brian took the boys on their first camping trip back in May to Prophetstown State Park nearby. They had so much fun! So much, in fact, that Brian took them again a few weeks later (pictures to come). There wasn't much shade so it was pretty warm but they didn't mind!

eating dinner (Samuel and I visited for a little while)

Jack and Dustin making their S'mores

Enjoying their s'mores

relaxing by the fire

Watching the sunset (probably at like 930 because it stays light so late). It was a late night which made for some sleepy boys the next day!
