i love this photo of jayden and dillon @ the cabin. she was playing patty cake with him. it was too cute! she is such a good big cousin to him!


here is to you daddy's!

Happy fathers day!!!

to my dad, drews dad, grandpas and everyone who is a father!!!!!! you all deserve atleast one day that is all about you?!?!?!

and last but certainly not least my husband! happy first fathers day to you!!!! you are an amazing father and dillon is so lcuky to have you in his life!!!!

amazingly enough----i did not take a single picture when we had everyone here today for the picnic (which was rained out) so we were stuck inside---but all turned out ok. but i did not clean @ all b/c i figured we would be out in the yard and in the boat. f course nothing goes as planned!!!

we had a fun weekend! friday we had a wedding in fargo. dillon was up till 11.

saturday dillon and i met my parents in perham and we hit some garage sales---it was turtle fest! and breakfast of course! got some stuff i could not live w/o

then came home----dillon and i took a dip. drew was out on the boat. his whole family was out in their pontoon!! it was a perfect dayfor the lake!!!
i got some much needed sun on the dock while dillon slept!

then off to a relative of drews for a while in the late afternoon

drew and his dad took off for fargo for the races.
dillon and i headed to rush lake to the cabin to see nana and papa (it is their 39th anniversary)dillon stayed up late again. 10pm!
stayed @ the cabin

home on sunday morning.

got ready for guests.

everyone came and ate and chatted and celebrated FATHERS day with us!

now here i am am.

dillon sleeping drew watching racing!

yikes.....i am sad the weekend is over!


its hard being a baby!!!

i love this sequence of pictures........he makes me laugh. we were playing and giggling and all of a sudden he was concentrating and i could not help but take pictures...i think i might have gotten atleast 50 of this....... buddy you make me laugh! and you might hate me someday a little for posting this! :) but dont worry we all do it! poor guy is still on laxatives and still makes these faces!
Dillon had his first dip in the lake!!! he loved it! unbelievably it was warm on sunday so we went in!!! gramma and grandpa barker got D this little floatie---and it worked perfect!! i think we will have a water bug on our hands and soon he will be learning to ski and wake board!!! :)
other exciting news Tuesday June 16th---DILLON ROLLED OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was so exciting... he was working so hard so i started helping him and soon after he did it all himself! dont worry i have video----just wish i could figure out how to get them uploaded!

he is loving tummy time now and loving his nightly walks! too bad we live in mn and do not get the best weather all of the time----we have not been on a walk at all this week with all of this rain!
he is giggling all of the time now. tonite when i asked him if we should go put him clothes away he started to laugh---so of course like any mommy i said it again and again and he did not stop.... then i got the phone to get drew in on it and then he stopped----would rather listen to daddy talk!
dillon is already in bed----6:30. he was spitting up like i have never seen and not feeling well. he fell asleep cuddling with us so we put him down! i feel so bad for him when he is not feeling well. hopefully tomorrow he is feeling a little better!
