Last night at softball was very soggy. Cody went to chase his runaway ball into the grass and on the way found a huge patch of mud. He slipped and got covered in mud. I thought it was so funny and so did everyone in the bleachers. He hated having mud on his hands. One shoe is completely caked with mud. Of course it is only his second day wearing these new shoes. :) I had to strip him down to his diaper and put him in the sink of the bathroom. It was like a comedy routine. All in all it was a hilarious moment and I got some really cute pictures. BOYS!

We are so excited for our friends Joe and Jen. They have welcomed a second baby girl into the world. She is so precious. We look forward to many years of smiles, laughs and watching her grow up!
I couldn't help but snap these last two pictures as we were leaving the hospital with The Williams. Harrison is such a big guy. He took Cody and Jackson by the hands and was helping them find their way out. It was so cute how he was being so responsible. What an unexpected treat to see them this weekend!

This Saturday morning, we took a family trip to the Norfolk Zoo. We had a great time! It was very, very hot, but we were all in good spirits. We saw a ton of great animals. Unfortunately, the one animal we had hyped Cody up to see, The Lion, was being lazy in the shade just out of sight. We had been practicing roaring like a lion on the way there. It was so adorable! He waved "hello" at every animal as we walked by. That melted his mommy's heart. We had a nice time on our family outing. I really want to do a playtime for the kids there in the fall. They have a wonderful grassy area where they kids can run and we could set up a picnic lunch. It's so much nicer there then I remembered!
Cody loves to watch the big machines and the guys putting up the walls and roof. It's like our very own Handy Manny in our back yard. It's hard to keep him away. I had my camera with this time, so I thought I'd snap a couple pictures. He was having so much fun :)

Dinner last night with Zach and Brandie!
I took them to one of my new favorite places, Jason's Deli. I just went there for the first time last week and love the chicken salad. We went to the one in the new shopping center behind Target. It's so nice over there. I can't wait to see what over shops are going to be there too.
We had such a great time with Zach and Brandie. Cody loves playing with them. We can't wait for them to add a new member to their family! Hint, Hint :)
Cody taking time to smell the roses...I mean day lilies!

This HUGE dog was looking for a new home yesterday and Chris has been begging for a puppy. Cody loves to ride him and uses him as a big pillow. I think he's even better than a real dog. He sits and stays, he doesn't need to go outside. You don't have to walk him. He doesn't bark. And he doesn't mind when Cody pulls on his ears!
Thank you Mrs. Shelly for our new pet! He's been a big hit in our house.
Last night at dinner, nothing I put on Cody's tray seemed to make him happy. He kept pointing at the table and whining but nothing was working. Finally I realized he wanted the Corn on the Cob. Surely he can't eat that I thought :) As soon as I handed it to him, he got this hug grin on his face. He did not leave one kernel on that cob! And we had a very quiet dinner!

Cody and Daddy doing "work" this Sunday. Cody loves to ride on the tractor! He would sit on it all day if we would let him. He hears other neighbors cutting their grass and he stops everything and listens and says "mower" with wonder in his voice.
For Father's Day this year, three girls in my small group and myself, got our husbands a tee time at a beautiful golf course in Williamsburg. While they golfed, we shopped at the outlets "Toddler-Free." It was a wonderful day of friendship for both groups! I can't wait to do it again next year. Thanks girls!
