He doesn't cry, doesn't make a sound, just makes this funny face. And keeps this same expression until all of us are laughing. All it takes is to say "no Kash" or "stop" for this funny little face to appear. We have some great laughs over it.Just some more random pictures.....

I must admit I wasn't overly excited about the 26 hour drive, but Steve convinced me it would be fun and we would get to see a lot of nice scenery along the way. Well it was definitely long, but it wasn't too bad for the most part. Once you get threw Montana it was very pretty. Tons of trees, lots of farmhouses with cool old barns, lots of cornfields which were a topic of conversation many times, and lots of rivers. It was good to actually be able to talk to Steve without being interrupted by kids. And I had forgotten how fast you can stop for lunch, eat, go to the bathroom and get back on the road without kids slowing you down.
We got to Joe and Karen's Sunday night. We had a fun time with them. Steve and Joe got to play lots of golf which he loved. Karen and I got to do a lot of shopping which I loved. It was fun seeing where they live, meeting some of their friends, hearing funny stories about their crazy neighbors, seeing the sights of downtown Indianapolis, eating Karen's delicious home made ice cream, playing hide and seek with Mikey and Max, eating amazing Chinese food, playing rook, and just hanging out and chatting. For some reason I didn't take any pictures while we at their house so here is one I got off facebook of them. Wish it wasn't so small!!! Can't wait till they're done school and can move a little closer to home.
This was the gunsmith place which was right up Steve's alley. He loves it when I make him pose in front of things, especially when I make him point and act excited.

Kristy and I packed up all the kids one day and went to Waterton. We didn't do much, just played at the amazing new park and rode bikes around, but that was all we needed. The kids had a blast and there is nothing that I like more.
Of course we had to go to Big Scoop, the "kids" really wanted to. Ok maybe I was just really craving rolo ice cream, which they were out of.
The cutest, happiest little Brayker..
And for the Calaway Park trip Steve was able to get a couple days off work and come. So we went up Thursday morning, went on rides till the park closed and then headed to a hotel that had water slides that the kids played on all night. The kids had so much fun. Summer was literally one hair to short to go on a lot of the rides. There were a few meltdowns through out the day because of this. Besides that everyone had fun and got to go on all the rides they wanted. I still get a little sick thinking about the ride I went on with Haylie. It was called "Chaos", and that is the only word to describe it. I was honestly sick the whole rest of the day. I was really lame that day and didn't want to pack my camera around so I did not take one single picture. Looking back really would it of killed me?? Oh well. Here's the one and only picture I got of the day.....
But I must say, now that school has been going for almost 2 weeks, I AM LOVING IT! It's amazing how much you can get done with 3 less kids around and how much cleaner the house stays. They all have really good teachers and good classes and are having a fun year so far.
So Kash turned one on July 31st and yes I am finally blogging about his b-day. Can't believe he's one already!! I had to laugh at the difference in having your first baby turn one and your 6th baby turn one. With Haylie we had a big party, all of Steve's family and mine were there. It was a stress. With Kash we didn't plan one single thing. I'm thankful his Grandma Holland bought him a present otherwise he would not have gotten one. At about 3:00 that day I decided that I should make him a cake, maybe only cause I was kind of craving cake. Not that we loved Haylie more than Kash, but I guess you just realize that he has no idea what's going on anyways, and that simple is better. Anyways enough rambling.
We did have a fun day. We had hot dogs and chips for dinner and discovered that his favorite thing in the world is watermelon. Really could a kid be any happier......
The aftermath of the cake. I know he's a filthy mess but you just have to put a dirty-cake-face picture on don't you?? And I love how the elastic from his hat is cutting off the circulation in his poor chubby little neck.
After dinner we all hopped on our bikes and went for a family bike ride. One of my favorite things to do. We went to the "castle" park which makes for a long bike ride for the little kids, but it was worth it. Kash had fun and so did everyone else.
Here's a few fun things about Kash.....
*He is the happiest baby
*Constantly is getting attention by someone
*He is always sucking his thumb to the point that it is annoying. My other kids were thumb suckers too, but he is by far the worst.
*The second he hears the door open he is there, ready to go outside.
*His favorite place is the garage where dirt bikes, tools, skateboards, and bikes are at his little fingertips.
*He loves following everyone around and loves just sitting and watching the constant chaos going on around him.
*His cheeks are so chubby that you can't help but kiss them all the time.
*When he wakes up he never cries, just hangs out in his crib till someone comes and finds him.
*Started walking at around 11 months.
*Has seven teeth now.
*Loves going for walks in the wagon.
*Always dragging a blanket around with him.
*Loves to eat pretty much anything.
*He never wears shoes.
Briggs would of had his picture taken on every rock if I would of let him.
Briggs and Haylie were the speed walkers and made it up before Micah and I. It was nice going at her pace (or maybe she was going at mine) and being able to talk to her one on one.
Haylie is at the age where she likes to be a goof in every picture.
