Deck improvements

We had a busy Saturday over the holiday getting the pool even more summer ready. Tim and Ron hustled and got the whole deck stained! Plus we got a sweet new fire pit. We even got the light it up that night.

Mother's Day 2012

We celebrated Mother's Day this year with breakfast at our house. Tim and I made hanging baskets for the mom's and grandma's. Chris and Ashley got mom a new pair of red TOM's.

Hauling the boat no-more

Tim's parents have an awesome deck boat that we get to enjoy during the summers. They normally drive it back and forth from Springfield so it probably doesn't get used as much as it could though. They decided this year to purchase (or rent, I guess) a wet slip at Pomme de Terre Lake. The marina where the slip is is right by the Nemo Landing Campground where they spend every holiday. It is about an hour north of Springfield and will be so nice and convenient. Tim said he might even feel comfortable enough taking the boat on his own if he doesn't have to pull it an hour and back it in down the ramp. Yay for summertime!
Now it just needs to boat!

{Happy Birthday} Ashley!

We like May babies in this family. Ashley's birthday is May 9 just four days after Chris's. We tried out the new Santa Fe Grill, which is owned by the same people as Metropolitan Grill. They definitely squeeze as many people as possible into the old Schlotzsky's location but the food is great and the company was better. Plus the dessert was to-die for. I am glad my dad forced us into ordering it. Good call Dad :)
Birthday Girl!
Chris and Ashley
Grandparents made a surprise visit
Me and Tim (Don't mind me looking like a giant...)

Best dessert E.V.E.R. Sopapilla Cheesecake with cinnamon ice cream

Johnson Beach Club

That's right folks. We are open for business! Let the sunscreen and beers flow like crazy as we dive into another summer :)
Before. So drab and sad.

After. Yippee!

{Happy Birthday} Chris

32! Chris decided to break away from the usual Nakato birthday dinner and we all went to a Springfield Cardinals game. It was a beautiful night. Awesome weather, unlimited food b/c we sat in the Redbird Roost, a win for the Cards and fireworks at the end of the night. Great idea, such a fun night with the fam. Happy Birthday bro!

I think this is the cutest pic of Aidan!

Craft Night

Us ladies are partial to a good ole' craft night. Trina, Kari and I went in together for a gift for Melanie and Sam Blair's baby shower but decided we wanted to make them some personalized onesies as well. So the girls came over and we indulged in pasta and crafts. The onesie go a lot faster when I have a entourage to help out! Good work ladies :)
Yes, the Blairs are having twins. A for Avery and J for Jackson.

Sawyer was our chaperon, he had final approval.

Auntie Trina

Silly face.

Yummy snack :)

Tie for Jackson and Lips on the front and 4-leaf Clover on the bootie for Avery. They are Irish, so we thought it had a kind of "Kiss me I'm Irish" feel.

This picture is actually of Tim and Sawyer at the shower that weekend.
