Cooper's 1st Camping Trip

Cooper's 1st Camping Trip

Keeping up with the Joneses...

This weekend was Cooper's 1st camping trip and he had such a good time. He did very well and didn't want to go home until it was time to go to sleep in the tent, he wasn't too sure about that. He did like the all the stars in the sky, he said "they are all over the place, mom". When we were trying to settle down for bed he made a wish on a star that we could go home to his books and his was too funny! He also caught his first fish, which was about 1/2 the length of him, he really loves to fish..but had more fun playing with the minnows. We grilled out hot dogs for dinner...but Cooper survived almost entirely on Cheetos. I'm sure future camping trips will be more daddy and Cooper, and mommy and elvis will keep the home fires burning.

Love, Niki, Chris & Cooper

New Additions for Eric & Ashley

Here are some pictures of our new baby Abby! She is a 5 month old Beagle/Basset Hound mix and she and Mia absolutely LOVE each other! They have not stopped playing since we brought Abby home on Saturday evening!

Love, Eric & Ashley

The Hoffman's kids get a haircut!!

We took the kiddos for haircuts on Saturday! Madison has her 1st big girl haircut and we have the ponytail to prove it! Daddy finally agreed to let us chop it! Madison is not a fan of ponytails & braids (they hurt very too much!) so with it being so hot we figured she'd be cooler this way.

Austin is getting to be a big boy himself! We are DAYS away from walking! He even started to let go a little this weekend and stood a couple times without holding on. He is very busy all the time and tries to keep up with sister. He loves to splash in the bathtub and loves to be outside! He is constantly moving! He's eating solid food and still taking bottles.

Mommy & Daddy are in countdown mode...we leave for an adults only Mexico vacation in 17 days...oh yes days!! WHOO HOO!!
Love & kisses to all!
Anna, Jeremy, Madison, & Austin
