Bryan/Lute Wedding

We attended a wedding this weekend at the Shoal Creek Living History Museum.  Our friend Laura married Scott (small world - we know his parents!) in a beautiful Celtic ceremony.  We are so happy for Laura & Scott!  Those of you that attended our wedding may remember Laura who stood in for our friend, her late husband Sammy in our ceremony.

Niko being silly.
 Daddy and Ryker (and the appropriate whale booty.)

Happy Couple!

These were actually taken last month, but I just got around to scanning them in.  I don't usually get the collage photos, but I really liked this one with the Spiderman background. 

We are REALLY close to crawling....
It's like they almost love each other! 
 Giant head.

 Belly time.


I LOVE this photo of the boys.
Sitting pretty!

R2D2 Hat

Does this kid look sick to you?  Didn't think so... but he tested positive for Strep last night at Urgent Care.
Playing around the the R2D2 hat the Easter Bunny brought.  This hat is supposed to be for a 2-3 year old.  Fits his giant head at 7 months.

Look at that laugh face!  Neil calls Ryker "Jolly".... (fat and happy.)

Planet ComicCon

Here we are at the 2013 Planet ComicCon!

Niko spotted Loki right away.  

Then the Joker!

You know Niko loves Spiderman.

He was so excited to see a Ghostbuster.

Niko searched for Thor all day long.  Finally, he saw him and was so happy.


My personal favorite - The Shoveler!

This guy was so awesome - Niko loved the fact that he picked him up.

Lady Captain America!

Mario was pretty fun as well - he had coins that he was handing to the kids.

Dr Who Dalek.

Save me from this Nerd Fate!!!!

Ryker is hanging with Tracy.  :)

 Niko is battling The Hulk.

Totally our Christmas cards this year.  Nerd on.

All Night Long.....

We are cutting teeth....  Long, long, nights.  Or he is just getting ready to be a true Bears fan.... if that's the case, get used to crying the blues, kiddo.

Blood noses.... again.

Please Spring.....  come soon.  Niko has had several bloody noses this week.  I can't wait for the furnace season to be over...  or for him to finally outgrow these bloody noses.  Poor guy.  At least he doesn't freak out over them any more.

Back Seat

Someone LOVES the back seat of the new car.  Niko has been begging me to sit in the back and I have put it off until the weather warmed up.  Now that big jacket weather is over, he can sit in the back as much as he wants.

It sounds weird, but it is a big pain trying to reach all the way to the back when both of us are in giant coats.  He loves it back there... he gets the area all to himself, the Baby can sit next to him and he can see his brother.  Life is good.

Ryker's new bath toys.  (Niko asked Ryker to share them.)

Hehhe.... Ryker's new nerdling hat.  R2D2!

Loves his 'new' toys!

Niko was very interested in 'sharing' this toy as well.

Good times!
