There is a 4-year-old living at our house!

It is unbelievable that Dylan is already 4-years-old!!! He is Mr. Independent...a little too much some times...and loves to help with everything going on except picking up toys at the end of the day. He starts school in just 3 short weeks and he is certainly ready. We drove past his school last night to help with his insistence that he was going to be late for school.

Dylan chose to have a pirate party this year. Roger and I went a little overboard (pun intended) with the theme. :) The weekend of the party there was a "pirate" ship parked in the Ludington Harbor so we went to check it out.


Not to be outdone, Roger turned Dylan's play set into a pirate ship. I named it the Jolly Roger (after Capt. James Hook's ship of course).

Here are some picture highlights of the party:

Happy 4th birthday to our sweet boy!!

I am so far behind on blogging but wanted to post about Brian and Sarah's perfect wedding. We all had so much fun! They got married on July 16 in Ann Arbor.

Dylan and Camille were the ring bearer and flower girl. They both did a great job!

Rehearsal was great! The priest for the wedding was a lot of fun. He has know Sarah for quite some time.

Dylan really was a good sport! He hung with the big kids all weekend long!!!
This is a picture of all of the parents and grandparents with Brian and Sarah. We were at the Ann Arbor Brewing Company for the rehearsal dinner and it was really great!
Dylan got some swimming in before the big day! Helped to wear him out a little so he didn't run around the church during the ceremony. :) He has gotten to be quite the swimmer this summer!
Finally the big moment we had all been waiting for!
Mr. and Mrs. Brian Lindsay
Let the party begin :) 

Pictures with the families...

And Dylan got behind the camera for a few shots:

Another great shot of the Mr. and Mrs. 
What a cute couple of kids!
 Steve and Melanie!!
You know those Lindsay Boys....

I was going to make it 3 for 3 Lindsay Kids on the pole but my brothers protested. Roger wasn't too keen on that either. 

Melanie taught Dylan to do this move and say, "Huskies!"
We went to take pictures at the Law Quad and it was beautiful!!!

And then the reception. We had SO much fun. I was actually surprised where we stopped taking pictures....that is what a photographer is for, right?
