It doesn't matter how long it has been since spending time
with family, you can always pick up right where you left off.
Rae and Ainz had a blast playing with their cousins.
For the first time ever in Hardy history there were
more girl cousins in the house than boys cousins!!
And that is saying a lot when there are only
5 girls and 9 boys on Stuart's side!!
Just goofing around!!
Cousin Aaron is 4 and Ainz is 2!
Look how tall Ainzlee is compared to him!
More playing!
Aaron and RaeLynn are the same age!!

Love you guys!

Stuart's grandpa passed away a few weeks ago, thus the reason for
his family being in town. I am so grateful for
eternal families and what comfort it brings to us knowing
that we will be able to see him again!
The kids were very interested in the headstone.
It was so precious to watch them all
sit on the ground around the headstone.

All of us with Grandma Hardy!!
And of course us good looking Hardy's!!
As always!

Canon Beach May 14, 2010

Stuart's sister and sister in law were in town last weekend and of
course we had to hit up the beach. It was a gorgeous day, a bit on the
windy side, but we had a BLAST playing in the COLD oregon coast water,
building sand castles, and just enjoying being together!
Top row-Justin, Savannah, and RaeLynn
Bottom row-Ainzlee and Aaron
Ainzlee wasn't too happy, but Papa came to the rescue!
Uncle Stu building a castle with his niece and nephews!
Rae having a good time!
The kids(and Stuart)had a great time running away from the water.
Notice, Justin and Aaron don't have pants on, they both went out too
far and the tide caught up with them. But that didn't stop them
from still playing in the water!
Papa and Rae-bug
The CREW!!
Top Row-Sister in Law Teri, Me, Sister Candice

you can see the side of her face) Aaron, and Big RaeLynn

A little shout out to my babies' Mama

You know if there is one thing that I have learned about moms that do blogs, is that, they are posted with love and never about themselves, mainly about their babies and husbands. And so that's why I'm blogging about the mama in my daughters' lives.

Arlee and I found out quick that babies were not going to be an easy thing to put up with before they were born. She stayed up night after night trying to keep her food down. She wanted so bad to do the things that she used to, but couldn't.

We cherished the times when she could do activities or go on trips with family and friends. I remember going to Yellowstone with the Finchers, and her feeling so sick with Ainzlee, but she didn't want to make a big deal out of it. She sacrificed a lot. Time, sanity, strength, and body. She sacrificed it all to be, a MOM.

There is nothing out there I don't think that Arlee loves more than to wake up to see her daughters and give them the biggest hug and kiss(for some reason their bad breath smells better than mine). There's nothing my girls want more than giving their mama a hug and a kiss. I love it. I love moms. I love Joe (JO MAMA), Sue(SU MADRE) and Tom (TA MERE). Most of all of you out there that read these are moms, wife's or women. You are all amazing.

Men, I hope were honoring and being worthy of the hard work our wife's and mom's are putting into making us and our children happy.

Love you Arlee


Arlee is pregnant...with Ainzlee

RaeLynn at a few days old.

Ainzlee at one day....Isn't Mom beautiful?

RaeLynn was always freaked out by the raisin on Ainzlee's belly button.

Arlee blogging it up. Look how multi tasked moms are.

I'm sorry what? GOOOAAAAALLLLLL!

Arlee never gets to eat her food without something going wrong or Ainzlee falling asleep or RaeLynn dancing at the table in her princess dress.

Arlee's example...Cindi you did something very right with Arlee. Thanks.

Moms have attitude.


Mom's reprimand with love.

Ainzlee's classic cheese ball smile, I think Ainzlee got it from her mom.

Moms know how to shake it.

This is all about Mom.
