Has it really been 2 months???

So I realized that it's been nearly 2 months since I blogged last..WHAT?!?! Why does time go by so quickly?? If someone could figure out a way to slow it down please let me know. :-)
We haven't really been up to much since last time...Mark works and is still loving his job and continues to do great. Erin LOVES her job too and is constantly learning new stuff. Tarell and Brayden are out of school for the summer and they love that! And last, Landon continues to grow and progress - he talks more and more everyday and we can actually understand him now...yippee!! We have fun and stay busy. Here are some pictures:
Mark's parents from Seattle came to visit and we had so much fun with them.

The boys went on the annual Father's and Son's campout and had a blast. They played, got dirty, got soaking wet, were cold, and they loved every second of it! Look closely - you can see grandad "roasting" Landon's socks. The boys got quite a kick out of that but they had to dry the soaking wet socks somehow.

The boys caught a new "pet" - this is Bryden asking if we can please keep him. IT was a moth that they named Charlie. Unfortunately Charlie went the way of some of our previous pets. Goodbye Charlie! I think we are done with pets forever!

Last, Mark had to have an emergency appendectomy about a month ago. He had been sick for a few days but refused to go to the Dr. (!!) Then, one morning he was home with Landon and Brayden (I was at work) and he felt really sick so he texted me to say he was calling 911. Seriously, 911?? Can it be THAT bad?? I thought he was joking so I called him and told him to wait and I would come home to take him to the Dr. Well, apparently he couldn't wait because when I got home Mark was gone and Brayden and Landon were being watched by 5 firemen. They boys thought it was great and "so cool!!" but I was mortified!! My house was a disaster and the boys were only half dressed - it was awful! So, I thanked the guys and took Landon to daycare and then met Mark at the hospital. As it turned out he need his appendix out! So, about 2 hours after arriving in the ER Mark was in surgery, after which he felt much better! We are all glad that he is ok and all better now.
For now, we are looking forward to our first vacation in FOREVER!! We are going to Seattle the middle of July and we are all just so excited! We have tons of fun things planned, plus we get to hang out with family! Yeah!!
I think that's about all for now. I'll try to be better at updating this thing more often.

Actually, you're just one week shy of 2 months, and what with the cute picture, I guess it was worth waiting for.....this time.
