On January 9th Hudson turned 4 years old.  I asked each of our family members (that is able) to tell me one word that describes Hudson.  Here are the results:

Shannon:  The Bane of My Existence (Shannon doesn't follow rules)
Alex:  Nuts
Jackson:  Uncontrollable
Chase:  Uuuuhhhhh....
Bryce:  Loud
Colton: Wild
Katie:  Cute
Naomi:  Crazy
Jodi:  Mine

Hudson is all of those things, and more.  I think he drives Shannon crazy because they are so much alike!

Four is my favorite age.  If only I could keep them like this forever!

I love you Hudson!

Zoo 2010

At the beginning of November we planned to load the kids up and head to Omaha to visit the Zoo.  Since Alex and Jackson had a short garbage day, we we were hoping to be on the road by about 10:30am.  Things rarely go as planned at our home, and this day was no exception.

By the time we got to Des Moines, Hudson had thrown up once from car sickness and it was almost 1:00pm.  We decided to go with Plan B and stop at the the Blank Park Zoo, instead.

The weather was beautiful, and we pretty much had the zoo to ourselves.  Here are some photos from our day at the zoo.

With Alex leaving for college this fall, I'm afraid our family vacations/outings are limited.  Gotta make some memories while we still can!

Long Lost Blogger

It has been three months since I've blogged.  A lot has happened.  I'm just going to start posting some pictures and see where we end up. 

This is a picture of baby Macklin when he was 18 days old.

Here he is with his daddy.

Macklin is the ultimate Rebel Fan!
