Ryland on the Runway...

I have to sport some of these clothes; Brian's mom sent them to us for Ryland- 27 yrs after Brian was born. I'm inlove with this scarecrow vintage tank. it's as thin as paper. And this dinosaur bib is a patch of fabric that she used when Brian was a baby to sew his blankets and towels. Ryland seems pretty comfortable in it all in all... and it suits him. His bed-head "do" and vintage muscle tees seem to do his laid back personality justice-- and may be indicative of any rockstar career options for the future. xoxox Thanks so much, mom, for passing these treasures along.

Barnum and Bailey Circus

This is pretty much what was happening in and around our house today...minus the giant elephants.

Josiah, Noah, Emerson and Jack had a wild day chomping down pancakes, shooting each other in the face with water pistols (and fighting off the mommies) and tuckering out infront of a movie.

I love the whole lot of them together. I see a bright future here.

July Visit with G'ma and G'pa

From ice-cream shoppes, to trainplay at B&N, to humid 10 visits to our favorite parks... i'd say, all in all-- we painted the town red.
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Knapp. We had such a fun time! See you in October

Digging sand out of his SANDals. I get it... but I don't.
Flying leaps- Action Emerson!
Wading in Lake Michigan with Grandpa
Daddy and shoresafe Emerson.

We're creeping into mid-way July; have just had Ma and Pa Knapp in for a full and delicious vist and will be heading out in 2 weeks to reunite with the Garnett side of this wild family in Fairmont, WV.

The humidity of the past few days, some early mornings, mixed with an eventful week had me and the boys all snoozing this afternoon. Here's a few pics of our time with grandpa and grandma

Ryland Look Alikes

We're just trying to nail down the closest resemblance we can find to Ryland's hair. Let me know you're thoughts: Exhibit a)

Exhibit b)

Exhibit c)

"Chip, I'm gunna come at you like a spidermonkey...."

Exhibit d)

This conclusion will completely affect a life-time nickname and how we describe him to other people in these early childhood years. So choose wisely.
