He is obsessed with "Cars" toys
Fell asleep while doing puzzles with dad
Couldn't choose which flavor he wanted... so he had both

"Mom, look at me I have 2 of the babies binkies in my mouth"
His great smile. We are so blessed to have this boy in our family, he keeps us on our toes.

Fell asleep in the middle of the living room floor.
Only eats the M&Ms
Our batman witch


Hunter had a bad crash on his bike this week. He made a turn to sharp and went face first to the road. Here is the warning...the pictures are pretty gross. He missed 3 days of school. He was to weak from not eating and embarrassed that he looked scary.
He would NOT let us take a picture of him so we did it while he was asleep...this was an hour after the crash.
Knocked 3 teeth loose and a huge swollen sad.
day 2 of healing....finally ate a banana and his spirits were up.
Day 6, ready to head back to school.... front teeth haven't fallen out yet.

Balboa Park

Our family outing last week was to Balboa Park in San Diego. These kind of outings make my heart swell with joy because we are all together and our love grows as a family. It's a small glimpse of my opinion.
Ticket in hand waiting for our turn on the train.

"All aboard"
The fountains are a blast to play in...the boys were wet from head to toe!

Hunter really thought this tree was cool...he wished he could climb it.

Gemmell Family Campout

We went camping over Labor Day weekend up at Mataguay Boy Scout Camp. It was a Gemmell family outing...those who came were Brian, Lyndsey, Jack, Elliott, Scarlet, Keith, Shannon, Camden, Matt, Alec, Becky, Eric, Tami, Hunter, Cole and Saige. We had such a good time we want to do it again next a different location:)
Hunter at the entrance of the Mataguay Ranch
Our campsite
There was a lot of dirt there and Cole collected most of it on himself.
He took those 2 cars every where we went...they had a good time too.
Doritos always taste better while camping.
The 2 campers...notice Cole is missing a shoe, he was tired of all the dirt is his shoe so he went barefoot.
The Master scout...he set up everything and took everything down. I love that man!!!

summer fun

Cousin Ryan & Abby are fun to make up plays with.
Cousin Ryan & Abby are fun to climb trees with.
grandpa and hunter heading down the water slide
We love having family in town...we can do so many fun things!


He calls her "my baby" and is so sweet when he holds her. I love this picture and how they are both gazing into each others eyes.
While my mom was here he was obsessed with getting her reading glasses out and wearing them. Now since she is gone he found Mr. potato glasses and wearing them while working on the computer , just like grandma would do.

First school bus ride

Cole was VERY sad (screaming & crying) that his brother got on the bus without him.
Hunter and Matthew(our neighbor) ready to go ride the bus
Walking up to the bus stop
waiting for the bus just outside our neighborhood

These boys had no fear of getting on the bus....they were like "see ya"
