How is it even possible?

How is it even possible that this sweet chubby cheeked baby boy turned 4 years old today?
Time has flown by so quick. 

Happy Birthday Sweet Gauge.
 Mommy and Daddy love you soooo much!

O come let's sing Ohio's praise...

This past Saturday we thought it would be fun to head down to campus and show the kids where Mommy and Daddy went to college. We started off our adventure by having a late lunch at Eddie George's Grille 27. The highlight of the meal was watching Gauge dance his little heart out to the Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling."

From there we walked over to Mirror Lake

where we sat and took in the scenery and watched the cute little ducks.

Next up was touring the Main Library and it's recent (to us) renovations. The view from the top floor were simply amazing. As we were standing looking out at The Towers....a huge hawk flew by with another small bird in it's talons.

From the Library to The Oval. Lots of great memories strolling these sidewalks with my sweetheart.....or laying in the grass on a warm sunny spring day (skipping class) lol

Next up was a tour of Larkins. Wow has it ever changed. Not that I visited Larkins much as a student. There seriously had to be over 100 treadmills in that place....along with tons of other exercise equipment, basketball courts, racquetball courts and even a viewing deck that look out over "The Shoe."

We walked past the stadium hoping wishful thinking that maybe a gate would be open and we could just peek in "The Shoe"...no such luck.

We of course had to stop and get some pictures in front of the big Numbers.

We ended the day with some yummy ice cream from UDF right around the corner from where Daddy use to live.

Shawn and I both have so many great memories from our time at Ohio State. It was fun to take the kids, walk around and reminisce.

We won't talk about how hearing Carmen Ohio can still make me tear up.

GO BUCKS!!

Play Ball

This year was Grace's 2nd year playing T-Ball. It was so much fun to see how far she had come in learning the skills of the game. She is such a good little ball player!!

We had an amazing season this year.

Friday Flashback: Trike a Thon

I have been slacking lately in blogging what we've been up to. 
And....since it's been FOREVER since I've done a Friday Flashback, 
I thought these two would fit perfectly together. 

Back in mid May, Gauge had his first ever Preschool Trike-a-Thon.

If you know Gauge at all, you would know that he is a snack man at heart (understatement of the year). He can not go very long without having a snack or drink of some sort.

So when it came time for his Trike-a-Thon.....I thought for sure that he would stop mid way around his first lap and request demand a drink or a snack. Boy was I wrong.

He raced around that track on his little tricycle with an intensity and focus like I have never seen in him before!

He was totally into it! He barely even slowed down in front of us to give us so much as a wave.

I was so proud of my sweet little boy for going out there and doing the very best job that he could.
