Mom and dad spruced up Ben's grave AGAIN!  They're apparently having fun decorating. :)  SO CUTE!

I surprised Kayla at the end of her finals by kidnapping her from school and taking her up to Lake Sunapee to ski.
 It was a BEAUTIFUL day.  I used the wet suit on the first run and then shed it for the rest.  The water was actually warmer than I had anticipated.
 Brady loves being in the boat and falls asleep so easily.
 I didn't get any pictures of Kayla skiing because Kara made me drive the boat to get some practice pulling skiers up.
 Kayla was a good sport...even if I did drag her around the lake a few times.
 It probably wasn't her funnest experience but she was really patient with me which I was grateful for.
 She ended up taking a pretty hard fall on her last run and was feeling sore.
 She was finished after off came her jacket.
 Not me...I was having too much fun. :)
 Eventually we did go back to the dock and warmed up in the hot sun.
 Brady loves being at Lake Sunapee...
 So much fun to be had...I love his happy face.
 While Kayla and I soaked up some sun, Kara had fun playing with Brady in the water.
 We thought at first it might be too cold, but he ended up loving it...almost as much as Kara loves him. :)
 And then it was time to say goodbye until another day.
Thanks again Kara!

This morning I got a kick out of watching Brady interact with Mickey.  He found it fascinating that she was chewing on her bone.
 Mickey tried hard to ignore Brady as he was closing in on her territory.
 Brady decided that he wanted her bone...
 But like Brady, Mickey isn't very good at sharing.
 Brady didn't let that stop him...he made multiple attempts to take Mickey's bone away from her.
 Until he succeeded and Mickey was left hanging her head.

A few tastes later, Brady decided the bone wasn't for him...
(thank goodness)
And they both lived happily ever after! :)

We ventured to Portland, ME yesterday to visit some old but great friends to celebrate their oldest son's graduation.

Aside from Brady vomiting in the car 5 minutes into our 2 hour drive home, it was a FUN afternoon/evening.
