Trip to Mackinaw Island continued...
...the girls and their dad.
If you click this pic, it will make it bigger and you will be able to see the two kayakers way down below. How much fun does that look like?!?
Kobe and I with Arch Rock in the background.
The girls, Kobe, and me at the lookout point.
Caleb and his girls with Arch Rock in the background.
Kobe, the girls, and me with Arch Rock. We thought that was one of the coolest parts of the trip. The hike to get all the way up to check out the rock...not so much. Basically the pic looking down at the kayakers is how high we were. The bike trail was all the way down next to the water. Yes, it was definitely a good hike. :)
More to come later once I find the cord to the other camera. :)

Our Vacation to the cottage and Mackinac Island
Part of our view from the front of the cottage. So gorgeous!
The girls swimming in the lake...
...while Kobe snoozed away.
Piper waiting patiently for the shuttle to come and pick us up and bring us over to the ferry launch.
Piper taking a break from chasing the sea gulls.
Daddy and his girls.
And more to come later. :)

Piper's 4th Birthday!
She got a Dora ball!
Opening her card from Poppa, Grandma, and the girls.
Cole putting all the stickers on the barbie house that Piper got. I wish I could have caught her face when she saw it. Her eyes got huge! The house is bigger than she is! I am sure there will be many pics to come of her and Ambry playing with it.
We are so blessed to be given another year with our hillarious Piper!

I just had to let you know about this "little" blog over here
. Although, it really isn't so little since it was featured on Yahoo!. Seriously, go and check it out...and if there is anyone who wants to teach me how to sew and do this, please speak up, because how cool is what she is doing?!?

A Trip to the Zoo
The Girls, Kobe, and I went to the zoo with Esther
and her kids, and Grandpa and Grandma. Here are the four older ones checking out the alligators.
Ambry and Piper hugging it out while Kobe sleeps on in his stroller.
A cute pic of Ambry and Lulu with Piper swinging in the background. She didn't want her pic taken. She's funny like that lately.
All of the kids minus Kobe and Esther's little one.
Kobe sleeping in his stroller. He won't sleep on his back so I lay the stroller as flat as I can and he snoozes away.
Probably the funniest part of the whole trip. Piper caught this chicken that was running around outside one of the cages. I could not believe she just went up to the chicken and grabbed it...
...then she didn't want to let it go...
...so she gave it a nice goodbye hug...and I just waited for that chicken to peck at her...but nothing happened, and Piper left happy thinking that chicken was one of her best friends. :)

Two little readers
Ambry thought Kobe needs to "start learning while he is still little". Her words, not mine. :) So she has started reading to him so hopefully he will know all of his letters when he turns one. Quite ambitious of her, I thought.

Here are both the girls all ready to get going. We got two big pieces of plastic out of the shed, spread them on the lawn, sprayed them with water, and squirted a bunch of Dawn dish soap all over. They thought it was the best slip'n'slide ever.
Piper splashing her way down.
