Joy of Love::6/28 and 7/28

The ones they love

Andy loves his boys, and his Green Bay Packers-especially after a Superbowl win!!!



Three generations of H-family men. Can you see any family resemblance?


Apple picking

Yesterday we went apple picking with some friends. It was a cool, early fall day in Wisconsin, so it felt right to be out there. According to one of the workers, they have a smaller crop this year because of the weather, but the crop they have is a very good one. We definitely agree!


Badger game with the fam!

I don’t feel like getting too wordy with this post. I’ll just say that the rain cleared out in time for us to enjoy a dry game. The weather was cool, but warmer than it was supposed to be. And despite spending most of the first quarter listening to Caden whine, we all had a […]

Star Wars in Concert

We’re a bunch of “Star Wars” geeks around here. It’s kind of hard not being a “Star Wars” fan with two little boys in the house! Not to mention Andy’s love of the series, too! So we jumped at the chance to go see “Star Wars in Concert” which is a concert with a full […]

Making the most of summer

We’re trying to get as much out of summer as we can. Summer doesn’t last too long around here, and winter lasts WAY too long, so you want to soak up as much outdoor time as possible. (It’s not like it’s so cold in the winter that you can’t be outside, but it’s too cold […]

What a weekend!

We’ve been very busy this weekend. We’ve been busy having FUN! (This is a REALLY long post, so hang in there!)

We’ll start with this past Thursday night, when Andy and I headed down to Summerfest to check out O.A.R. with some friends. It was packed, but we were able to claim a section of […]

Fun at the Brewer game

We took advantage of the 5-Day, 5-County Celebration to get half-price tickets and landed ourselves in the ninth row down the left field foul line. They were pretty great seats, but it was hard for the boys to see from that low. We still managed to have a good time (despite a pretty bad loss […]

Happy birthday, Daddy!

So although my dad’s birthday was yesterday, we had to wait until today to celebrate. Better late than never!

The boys and I headed over to my parents’ for dinner-very fancy frozen pizza! And after dinner, it was time for cake. My dad’s cake of choice is spice cake with penuche frosting. (Oh my goodness, […]

Happy half-birthday, Noah!!!***

Yes, we celebrate half-birthdays in our family. I grew up celebrating my half-birthday (which was last Friday by the way). My best friend’s mom used to make half cakes for us! I like celebrating them for my boys in particular, because they both have birthdays near the end of the year, quite close to Christmas […]

You Capture: Sweet

There was a fair amount of sweetness this past week.

A sweet toothless face (his fourth lost tooth in about 2 weeks!):
