Oma and Opa and the Wolf Lodge Birthday

 For Rudy's 31st birthday (we're officially into the 30s now!) I made a killer ice cream cake!  But what you can't see in this picture is that Rudy's parents, Oma and Opa, were here to celebrate with us!  As their birthday present to Rudy, they took us all to the Great Wolf Lodge for a weekend getaway...

 I love how much fun these boys have together!!

 We had so much fun together at the great wolf lodge!  Thanks Oma and Opa!

 Oma enjoying her first granddaughter!!

 Playing some croquet Rudy got for his bday from Wenmom and Rondad :)
 Having a good time trying out some local fare.  Liberty Station is a great restaurant in Bedford created from the old train station that the infamous D-Day 'Bedford Boys' came home on. (you're not really expected to know that reference or the story behind it...I didn't until we moved here :) )
 And I loved how the two Rudys wanted to help the little boys by "showing them how to play the game"...funny how I don't see any little boys in the picture...
 Makin some meat-a-balls in da keetchen with Oma!
Happy Birthday Rudy!  We all love you very much!
And thanks for the fun times Oma and Opa! We love you and miss you!

One month and a lot of fun!

 Here are a few unedited home shots of our month old Kyla.

 The boys have been SO cute with her.  They really are such great big brothers...pretty sure she's never going to date though! :)

 They're pretty great buds for each other as well!
 And they always keep me laughing!

and what comes from lots of rain??  Naturally-- A handful of earthworms!

 Kyla's first friend, Sydney, due a month after her, yet born 2 days EARLIER! :)
...i think they're talking about boys right now.
