What a busy summer so far!

After our beach trip and Jackson's birthday, we celebrated a lot more!

1. Father's Day- Happy Father's Day, Daddy! We love you so much! I made Nic and Jackson dress alike for church. Don't they look so happy! We even talked Nic into wearing this tie! Which is a miracle because Nic doesn't normally wear ties with "stuff" on it! It says, "Greatest Dad Ever!"

2. Nic's Birthday-Poor guy, I promised him homemade ice cream and just got around to making it a few days ago! Ice cream is his favorite thing in the whole world. Now, both kids LOVE it. I have to admit after marrying him, I also love it now.  I'm more of a cookie person, but I have one of those plug in ice cream makers that do NOT require salt and ice and I have to say, "It is the BOMB!" Happy birthday daddy sorry we have to celebrate your birthday with Father's Day every year. I feel like you are being robbed a day! Love you!

3. Anna Claire's Birthday- We had a great time with family and friends. "Doggies" was the theme she picked out. It was so much fun! I made dog cupcakes. Which took forever to make! We had Scooby Doo cookies in dog bowls for each table. I found one dog balloon at Harris Teeter! Thanks Harris Teeter for helping me out on that one. All of the party supplies had different kinds of doggies on them and AC loved it! She smiled so big when we sang Happy birthday.  She normally would hide but not this time she just giggled! It was so cute! Thanks to everyone that came you made her day!!!!!!!! And she loves the Snow White dress Scottie gave her she wants to wear it everyday!

4. We have a big surprise....... BABY INGLE #3 is due Dec 31!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Nic's grandpa's birthday) We are very excited. I wanted to add one more crazy kid to the family. Glad Nic agreed. :) Need a name. Don't know yet if it is a boy or girl but can't wait to find out. I'm ready though. I kept all my baby stuff from AC and Jackson! If you ever wonder if dreams come true, call me! They do come true! When a Dr. tells you that you probably will not have children and then you end up with three like me....yep Doctors don't know what a big GOD I serve! And maybe this one will look like me?
The day we brought AC home :)

The day we brought JW home:)

5.Anna Claire took swimming lessons from my sweet friend Janet. Yep jumping off diving board at 3 years old. I would have never done that when I was 3! I was so proud of her. Our sweet friends, The Tate's, came to watch her on "Show Off" day. GGGGGGOOOOOOO AC! Now when she is taking a bath she teaches me what Janet taught her! Too Cute!! If you want your kids to swim next summer, visit Janet's website to sign up. It is worth the money! Swimming is such a life skill!

       I left the sad news for last......our sweet english bulldog passed away last week :( I miss him so much.  He was the best dog.  AC drove him crazy and he just let her. I loved the way he would look at me when he knew he was in trouble! I loved the way he always wanted to be with me. I loved his fat face that only a mother could love. If I had to do it again, I would give him more treats, hugs, and pats on the head. The Ingle Family misses him so much!!!!!!!!! So say alittle prayer for us we are still sad. It just doesn't feel right coming home and not being tackled by a 70 lb puppy!
