Also, this week Buirlen turned 4 months which is simply crazy. One year ago we found out that he was on the way and now he is here and growing fast. Life is good.
Friday, Buirlen and I spent the day out at the farm. Grandpa Steven was working on moving the old milking barn so that they can start construction on a new one. It made for great entertainment.
Grandma Bonnie, Ephraim and Buirlen watching the barn moving process.
Oh the joys of a bucket full of water.
Meanwhile, The Lovely Keren Ruth, Irindee and myself got a game of Scrabble in.
I won! That rarely happens in Scrabble.
We think this kid might be starting to teeth because he chews on everything and could be renamed Mr. Drools
Flowers are going on sale at the garden center....Pure delight!
Sunday dinner was at Benjamin and Keren's.

So many kiddos
Last summer Luke worked on re-roofing our house. He got all but the garage done when we ran out of steel and summer. So this weekend he got back up there to finish the job. It looks great!
Flowers just make me happy. So many colors.
Walmart is exhausting(Especially when you decide to do your weekly shopping on Monday, July 3rd. Not my smartest decision)
Ken and Abbi hosted a lovely 4th of July picnic. Buirlen and Brody were thrilled to have the opportunity to wear their matching red white and blue shirts.
I've been wanting to get a family picture but it hadn't happened. So, I told Luke we were going to get one at the picnic right away, before anyone spit up, blew through a diaper, got fussy or fell asleep.
The toes have been discovered.
Last night at church this fellow decided to have a full out diaper explosion. This is not surprising in and of itself, seeing as he does it frequently(often when he is dressed all cute and we are away from home). What was impressive was that he managed to almost totally bypass the clothes he was wearing but get it all over me and the floor. Oh adventures!
My good friend Larisa was also able to come up for a visit this week as well and my sister Lydia, is headed this way tomorrow. She hasn't met Mr. Buirlen yet. The Adventures continue.
