better late than never

Julie, Rene', and me (yes, my eyes are closed and yes I hate standing next to teeny tiny in pictures)
The little family
Baby Mark took to Kindra right away.
I love this little boy! So dang cute!
The boys who just came back from the blow up obstacle course. There was so many fun things for them to do and plenty of water features to cool down. I never went to them, so I baked all day.
Baby Mark gives the biggest wet kisses, but Cole doesn't seem to mind.
I thought it would be hard to keep him on the blanket, but it turns out the grass totally creaped him out so it was no problem.
Kyle, being the ever so cool teenager
Taking baby steps with Grandpa Mark
The Sheriff's department played the bagpipes and drums and did an awesome job. I was very impressed. I wish my mother in law could have been there to hear and see them.They had the Karate studio students do a demonstration too. I'm pretty sure their enrollments went up after that.
Can you see the blow up movie screen in the background? We were suppose to watch the sand lot, but oddly enough the projector motor couldn't cool down in 116 degree heat. It was a good idea though. We all voted and they decided to start the fireworks show early. For such a small town they sure put on a nice show. I took tons of pictures, but I'll spare you and only share a few of them.


So pretty! Did you oooh and ahhh? hee...hee

P.S. I had NO control over the different fonts, colors, underlines though out this blog....so dumb! Technology apparently hates me as much as I hate it. Boy do I want a new computer! I sure hope you all don't think I'm intentionally ignoring your blogs. I'm really not...honest. This thing lets be get to a couple everyday and my list is quite long. I promise to catch up. ***edited***when I published the underline was gone, but the colors are different.

Wow baby Mark has changed since the last time you had posted his picture, it is amazing how that can happen so fast. He is one seriously cute baby though.

Looks like a fun 4th!! Yeah you got your pictures to upload!! I sometimes hate technology myself (hence the lack of pictures on my blog 99% of the time! LOL). Your fireworks pictures turned out great and, yes, I oohed and aahed! LOL I think Miss Brittany looks totally adorable pregnant and it just makes me cringe that I always look so chubby and swollen when I'm at her stage!! Poor thing having to be pregnant in this heat! I love your DH's hat! Too cute! I wish I could have heard those bagpipes!! I have a soft spot for bagpipes. Not sure why, but I just LOVE the sound!! Baby Mark is such a doll!!

Great photos! Glad you had a good fourth. Cute cute cute cute baby!!! He could be a "campbells soup" baby. So dang cute. Sorry it's so hot. Don't know how you deal with it. You are brave. I'd be home sucking on ice cubes. You are a good wife and mom.

Mary Jo said...

Yay! :o) Good to see you back again, Jolene! Great pics of the 4th. I can almost feel the heat! LOL Good luck with the computers (definitely sounds like time for a new one!)

Hey all you bloggers! Don't worry about her not responding to your blogs, she's not responding to her emails either....from relatives, no less! ; )

Cute pics! Baby and belly are big! I never could have worn any of the "little" maternity clothes that are popular now. Fat blob. Will never forget trying on spring shirt, saleswoman (back when they actually helped), said, "Oh you look so cute!" I said, "Uh no....I look like a big, fat Easter egg!"

Pam said...

Awesome phtos! I love your fireworks photos and baby Mark is getting so big!

Poor Brittany! I was out in 90 degree heat yesterday at only 11 weeks pregnant! She's a trooper for being out in 100+ degree heat in her last month of pregnancy! She's my new hero!
