Wilson things recently got hair cuts:

Last week we tried to go camping. It started off great. We got the car packed (no easy feat), got there, and I set up the tent while M made lunch. By herself! (J took the pics of her being a little mama.)
After we ate, we changed and headed to the sand dunes. I wish the pictures did it justice.
It was bright and the sand was hot!
All was going well until about 8 pm when we were getting ready for bed. M tells the story best: (I had locked them in the car with my phone to call 911 in case anything happened).
So, M and I literally threw everything in the car around 10 pm (J slept through all this) and went home. I promised them I would make it up to them so the next evening we had tin foil dinners that I cooked on the grill, ate them on a picnic blanket outside (I'm sure the neighbors think I am looney), and set up the tent-right in the yard.

I just can't help it, y'all. I'm in love with my kiddos. They have been cracking me up. Yesterday we got a package from Grandmama with some new shoes in it. The kids were so excited! They even put their new shoes on after their bath/shower with their pj's! These new shoes also led to a lengthy conversation led by J about how lucky they were to get two new shoes-one for each foot-because it just wouldn't be as cool with only one shoe. You wouldn't believe how long we discussed this!
Here's another moment that tickled me: I was tucking J in tonight and we were chatting about our day and about what we were going to do tomorrow. Then I said in a loud and silly voice, "and you better sleep in tomorrow morning! No waking up at the crack of dawn!" (Which he has been.) And he just started laughing and was overcome with the giggles! He's a cutie for sure! Something else I love about this kid: he will randomly come to me and give me a kiss on my arm-or wherever he can reach! Talk about melting my heart!
I know M has said some things that tickled me but they are escaping me at the moment!
Last week M had track camp. I didn't get very many pics. These are the few I got:
We also had a trip to the eye doctor. I was very thankful for the good people who work there-they were so patient in dealing with both my kids!
We also had a visit from the ice cream truck. That's such a childhood icon to me.
(love the tongue...)
New clothes and shoes:
Yesterday we went to a nature center near where we live. We truly enjoyed ourselves. First we learned about some MI natives:
Other critters were there as well. Then we went on two different hiking trails and covered a mile. It was just right for a little afternoon excursion. I am hoping to go out more often since it is something we all enjoy. What could be better than getting exercise together in a quiet peaceful environment? (I mean besides eating a bowl of cookie dough while watching endless episodes of ...) And J made it almost the whole way! I only carried him the last little bit!
Here they are before church today. I thought their daddy might like a pic on Father's Day. These kids are so lucky to have their dad. He is one-of-a-kind! We are so thankful for him and love him so much!
(I think J is ushering in the angels here, or maybe directing a symphony...)
M got bored and took about fifty pictures on my phone during church. Not the best activity to do when we are worshiping but they both seemed to have ants in their pants today! I am usually trying to keep J quiet and seated so I probably let her get away with a little more than I should. Nevertheless, when I looked at the pics tonight I got really tickled. Especially the video- she is quietly giggling because she got a shot of my fatty arm. Then when I whispered to her if she was being reverent she cut it off. I had no idea she was videoing me!
She just couldn't help herself...
After church we put together a puzzle. I love doing quiet activities with my babies!
