The city hosted a fun event called touch-a-truck. They had police motorcycles, firetrucks, garbage trucks, snowplows, a zamboni, tractors, buses, semis, etc. for the kids to climb on and explore. The kids loved it. They loved going down a giant blow up dump truck slide, too. When they were in the garbage truck Porter grabbed the keys and started it up. The garbage man was standing by the engine and it scared him to death. It was hilarious-only Porter would do that. He is such a funny kid.

Thurmans Cafe

On the TV show man vs. food the host eats a giantic burger from Thurmans Cafe in Columbus. We took the oppertunity to check the place out. It was crowded and they said there is almost always a wait. It was a really cool place. The burgers are 3/4lb. pattie-huge! I had the mushroom burger and Ky had the Thurman burger with cheese, ham, bacon, burger, and the fixings. One of our freinds, Blake, tried the "Thurmanator" which is two of Ky's burgers. He was able to finish it. Our kids are great eaters and Kynnady was proud to finish off her kids burger too! It's cool to watch the show and see the exact booth we ate at. Fun times and great food. And the other pictures are of another awesome metro park in the city. We were able to climb up a huge water tower to get this view and take some pictures.

care package

The kids got this cute care package in the mail from grandma and grandpa. They were so excited. I just wanted to share their excitement. Thanks for making our day and thinking of them, mom!

More zoo

We have continued to go to the Columbus Zoo a lot. The kids really enjoy it and it is nice to be able to come and go as we like. The kids enjoyed riding on the train and playing on this cute polar bear playland last time we went. The cute family in front of us is one of our good friends out here. We are so lucky to have good friends here to hang out with.

Frogs and Fireflies

The kids have had a blast catching cute little frogs around our house. They are small, like the size of a nickel. Kynnady is the best at finding them. We are also super excited because the fireflies are out. I love them. They are so cool. Ky spotted some last week in his area and brought them home for us to check out. Over the last few days they now started showing upout here at our house. I'm looking forward to spending nights filling up jars with the kids.

Homestead Water Forts

We love the parks here in Ohio. There are lots of beautiful, large, gorgeously landscaped, fun parks. We love the Homestead park near our house. It has many play areas, but they kids loved this day we played on the water forts. There are forts and hideouts and water guns attached to them. It was so fun to watch them get braver and braver with the water and guns.

It's a....


We had an ultrasound last week and we found out we are having a girl. We are super excited to add another sweet girly to our family. Her arrival date still looks like lucky 11-11-11. We can't wait to meet her!


Our internet has been down for a bit, but things are going well here in Ohio. It is starting to really heat up. We are enjoying the pool and just today we finally got grass at our house. The kids have enjoyed the mud and dirt, but I'll be happy to not do baths 3x a day. And we were lucky to have our friends Brady and Laurel come for a visit too. It was so much fun to see them and their cute little Paisley. I hope we will get together again soon.
