Sunny day love!!!

Today was such a beautiful day! After a busy morning...we headed outside for some sunny day fun! Makenzie & Madden filled up the water bin & played with the hose for a bit while Amara finished up her lunch in the porch. Of course I had to take some pictures of these two happy & having fun!! :-)













And then Makenzie sat & hung out with Amara for a few minutes...but that quickly turned to boredom because all Amara was doing was eating...so back outside she went!!


Amara & her tator tots...


Mmm..mmm...mmm...as Amara says it. She LOVES ketchup. It's so cute. :-) She dips her pacifier in it...that's how much she loves it. haha. So, because ketchup is so incredibly bad for people with all of the corn syrup in it & all...it's organic ketchup in this house!!!

Makenzie's Field Day at School

This past Thursday, Makenzie had a field day at school. They had all sorts of games & relays for the kids. It was really cute. Parents & family were all invited so I headed over with the little ones. :-)



Cheering on her team!!!








Yes...he was seriously doing the "armpit" thing. So funny. Only in kindergarten. :-)






This is her concentrating face...haha.








Happy to see her little brother!!












It's good!


Her class was divided into two groups. Makenzie was in the yellow group & they won with the most relays won! :-) Go team!!!


My 10 second attempt at a class pic. They were on a very strict schedule with time to ensure they got to all of the events before the buses came for kindergarten...so here is my 10 second attempt. haha.

My 30th Bday

Yes, I turned 30 this year. Sigh. :-) While I was in Wisconsin, my mom, Tim & family threw a big suprise party for me so I told Tim...no party in PA, please!!! :-) So, he obliged...thank you, Tim. However, the kids really wanted to celebrate so Tim ordered take-out for us & got a cake & some icecream to wish me a happy birthday. Makenzie was in charge of taking pictures. Thanks, Makenzie!



I think she's seen me do this one too many times. She pulled out her chair & stood on it for this one. Too funny!


And of course...when it's just mommy's cake...I let them dip their fingers in. :-)

Camping out!!!

Tim & the kids LOVE to set up the tent & spend the night outdoors! In the summer they go to campgrounds...but the backyard does just fine, too! They had a lot of fun helping Tim set up the tent & getting their beds all cozy & set up in the tent. It actually looked like one big playroom because they must have brought every stuffed animal in the house out there! They sure had fun, though! I took a peek outside & grabbed my camera to take some pics. Amara was LOVING the tent! She stayed outside until 10:30 watching the dvd player as they had some kid's music video on. I know, I know...a dvd playing in the tent? C'mon...it's 2008. It's a MUST to have a dvd player with little kids nowadays. haha. :-)I don't know how our parents managed when we used to go the cabin growing up! YIKES!





Madden was all smiles & giggles...he was SO excited!!!






Amara loved it, too. :-)


And of course...Makenzie is up for anything FUN!

Pool opening!!!

Tim's parents have an above ground pool that needs to get set up every summer...which they usually do memorial weekend. :-) We were here last year when they put it up so the kids remembered HOW MUCH FUN it was to "help". Because the water fills & raises the pool up...it takes quite a while for it to get to that point so the kids just LOVE to run around & play inside of it until they aren't allowed to anymore. FUN!





Amara is at her own "risk" when Madden has the hose. :-)


Her turn!! Don't you just love her hair...this is how it looks in the morning before I wet it down & comb it. A complete disaster!!! haha.




The water was freezing...but they didn't care...except for Madden in the background when he would slip. Then it was tears for a while. haha.




Yeah...it's pretty cold...
