Hello, friends!

We're visiting Ryan's parents for a few days before we head back South to that muggy Tennessee weather. (Can you believe it's 11am here and still to chilly to take a dip in the pool!?)

Oliver and Hazel are enjoying all kinds of attention from their Granddad and Groovy. You know, there's no faster way to a parent's heart than through loving their babies! :)

Also, Hazel is becoming more mobile by the hour. I know babies are supposed to start crawling at around 8 months, but I'm not sure this 5-month-old can wait much longer. She's already been scooting around for a week or two, but in the past few days she's been up on her hands and knees, belly off the ground, just rocking back and forth with that determined look in her eye.

An old soul, I tell ya.

Alright, we're headed out back for a dip in the pool. The one great thing about swimming pools in Michigan is that they're heated! Even if it the air is still 75, the water is 90!

I'll leave you with a few photos I snapped from our time at Rolling Ridge Ranch in Millersburg, Ohio on Saturday. We actually rode in a horse drawn wagon with buckets of feed that all the animals (including zebras!) came right up to eat out of! As you can imagine, it was a hit for the kids and adults alike. :)

Happy Monday!!

So sweet! I bet miss Hazel crawls soon. Isaac started around the same age, after scooting around first then doing that similar rocking motion. :)

I can't believe that girl is almost crawling. My boys were 9 and 10 months! She is precious. Hope to see you soon. I am missing the Myers crew.

Go Hazel Go!

My oldest, Brycen started crawling right before he turned 6 months.

Thankfully, Corbin is too chunky! lol I'm not ready for him to be mobile yet! lol

Miss Hazel sure looks like she's ready to take off!

I grew up in Ohio, went to college in Michigan, and now live in Florida... I sure do miss that cooler weather of which you speak. :)
