Yesterday morning Jenn and I took the kids to Bounce House sort of Carnival right up the street. It was incredibly hot and our little ones would only get in the original bounce house of jumping, no slides or fancy obstacles. Which is a good thing because I would probably have to go through it and get them out. It was only about 96 degrees at the time so we only lasted about 20 minutes and then head to Chick Fil A and it's literally cool indoor playground.
Last night Jeff and I took the kids to Toy Story 3. They both unbelievably adorable in their 3D glasses (so wish I had my camera). They both did so well in the movie and were very into the action. At one point Caitlyn even screamed out! Ha! I love the idea that toys could have a life after kids leave the room and have relationships, but wouldn't it be great if they took the initiative to organize themselves too. Or maybe that is really why our toys are ALWAYS mixed up!
Last but certainly not least our puppy was born last night. The momma dog had 5 females and 4 males. So we will bring our newest addition home on August 14th!!
If you ever check this site you might have just fallen out of your chair, cause there is a new blog. About time. Right?
I hope you are having a great summer! We are! It just keeps getting better. Ages 2 and 5 are so fun and yet in my household there are still naps every single day. Ahhhhh! The life! I am soaking up every single minute friends.
Yesterday we used our season tickets to Hawaiian Falls and it was a blast. We met up with a ton of teachers and their kids that I work with. Caitlyn took off on the slides in the kiddie area this year with no prompts and no fear. She swam long lengths underwater because the other kids were doing and she was so outgoing and brave. I love that about her. Brent enjoyed jumping off the edge of the pool and swimming around in his life jacket. When he went to bed last night he asked me, "Can we go to the water park again tomorrow?"
Today, my dear friend, Jenn and I went to IKEA. We were newbie's there and had no idea what to expect. WOW! Today we just scoped it out but next time and many times there after we are going to tear that place apart. I'm pretty sure we are both making some pretty serious plans. I love how they have kid areas set up too. Our little ones can't wait to go back and play. HA! We tricked them into thinking it was their playground.
I'm so super excited because we are getting a new puppy and she is being born tonight!!! A chocolate lab and we are thinking of naming her Sadie.
And just because I might not ever blog again for months on end, here is a picture of Caitlyn in her recital costume. It's the only picture I have on this computer that is current.
