Tyler Turns 2!

I made cupcakes in our cabin's tiny little oven... they turned out much better than last year's attempt! I think they upgraded me stove! Yippeeee!

 Trying to hold up 2 fingers....

"I waaaaaaaant..... THAT ONE!"

Where does the time go! Can't believe my baby is 2!

Wilson Family Pictures 2011

 Here is our entire family all together for the week!
You can count if you like, but I believe there were 38 of us!

Here are my parents, and siblings with their families and my Grandpa!

Here are the grandchildren with Grandpa!

Here are the GREAT grandchildren!

My Dad, Aunt Ginny, Grandpa, Uncle Merle & Uncle Keith

Quite the pair these two.... Avery & Addison

We pretty much take over the resort when we are there!
 From this point on.... Addison took over the camera and went around to everyone telling them how to pose.... surprisingly most of them were quite photogenic and cooperative! LOL

Here is what the back of our t-shirts read:
*DISCLAIMER: They were supposed to read "We're not here for a long time, we're here for a good time" from George Strait's song. Oh well.

Me and my Grandpa! LOVE HIM!

My sisters and Grandpa (and Tyler who refused to let me put him down)

My brother in law Jeromy and my niece Hannah.
 My favorite photo... Aunt Ginny... again Addison was in control here.

Hannah & Trevor

My parents.  


Trevor with his super awesome mom  (that's me)!
 We had way too much fun with this!

Cass Lake, MN

Who wouldn't want to spend a week (or longer) waking up to this gorgeous view!

When everyone had arrived, the kids raced off to take a ride in the paddle boat! Searching for treasures at the bottom of the lake.

I think by the end of the week we had a dozen or so golf balls that they had found!

Here I am with my sister, Angie's beach hat... how stylish... this is my magazine photo impression!

One of our favorite activities at the lake is tubing!  The kids are getting a little older and a little more brave...

 Here is my niece and nephew on the tube....

 Trevor went first, with me by his side!
He said, go slow and I don't want to hit any waves!

And he was done after just a few minutes... but happy!
 Next up was the more brave and more outgoing Addison! Her comments before we started:
"Go really fast and hit lots of bumps!"
 And so we did, and she loved it... and didn't want to stop!  She was belting out "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Oh I'm a Gummy Bear" the whole ride! Hilarious!

I may have just turned 30, but I still got it! Popped right out of the water the first try! Woo Hoo!

My nephew Dylan and my cousin Brandon.
 Brandon said to Dylan "Want me to throw you in the water?"  
Dylan said.. "OKAY!"
So he did!!!!

VBS Program

The kids had a great time at their VBS this summer! Addison and Trevor came home each day with great crafts and singing super fun songs!

They were so excited to be able to have Grandpa Bob in the audience to sing to!

These videos are so entertaining! All I can say is that before the program, Trevor told me he was going to be sure to sing nice and loud so that Grandpa Bob could hear him! So that voice you here loud and clear..... yep! That's my Trevor!

God' Big Love

I am Not Forgotten

I am Not Forgotten (Part 2)

Addison stole the show with her sequined purple skirt and dance moves during her class song:

God Is Wild About Us

We were all in tears we were laughing so hard! It was so much fun, and the kids had just as much fun! I'm so glad my Dad was there to be a part of that!

Road Trip in the "RB"

My parents recently bought an RV.  Our annual Wilson Family Vacation was coming up, and the kids and I were planning on driving up to Northern Minnesota to Cass Lake.... Nick was unable to take the time off due to his "boss's" busy schedule.  I guess no one thought I could drive that distance with the kids (hello, I'm 30, pretty sure I can handle that).  So...

My dad and his friend left Iowa on a Wednesday at 10am.  Less then 2 hours into their road trip out to Virginia, they blew a tire... add 3 hours to getting new tires, then they were back on the road. Exactly 24 hours after they departed on their journey, driving non stop, they arrived in Stafford Thursday late morning!

We went to Trevor and Addison's Vacation Bible School Program, loaded up the "RB" as the kids called it, and headed out very early Friday morning.  The kids had a blast in the "RB"!

Yes that's McKenzie sitting in Tyler's carseat...drinking a Monster.

 The coolest place to be was up above the cab... they thought it was so cool looking out the window!

"Pretending" to sleep with Mommy.
It was another nonstop trip (only stopping for fuel) until we reached our final destination! I don't know how Dad and his buddy did it!!!

We were so excited to be at the lake!
