Mermaid Birthday

Elsa turns 2!

She Loves Mermaids so it worked out perfectly to have a party at the new Splash Park in our neighborhood. There was lots of splashing, laughing, treats & presents. She had so much fun and is still talking about her "ber-day". She is the happiest child, you can not contain her excitement for life, there is always a big smile on her face -she doesn't walk, she bounces along. I love this age, she says the cutest things and there are no words for how cute she sings and dances around- which is all the time. She loves books, everything princess and is hardly ever not in a dress-up. She watches her big sis and does everything she does. She is my Elsa-berry and I can't stand that she is so big and I will cry when she stops running at top speed & crashing into me with the biggest, neck breaking hugs. Happy Birthday sweet girl!!

Ohhhhhhh, princess shoes.....

Cabin Trip

Back in July, we spent a weekend with some friends up at their cabin. We had such a great time chatting & relaxing while the kids played. And we got to take the horses out for rides- much to our girls delight. Look how cute these kids are, they had so much fun together and so did the adults!

Yesterday Greta and I were sitting on the couch as I fed the baby and Elsa was sleeping. She was telling me all about a best friend necklace (the heart shaped one that breaks in half that she doesn't actually have but has seen on a show). She said she was going to break it and keep one half of it and give the other half to her best friend. I asked her who her best friend was and she said, without hesitation, Elsa. Still bring tears to my eyes.

Photo Shoot

My friend Leila and I tried to take some pictures of the girls. I have been wanting to get pictures of all three of them and she was nice enough to rent some equipment and help me try to do it. We had 3 adults and it was still unbelievably difficult to get all 3 of them posistioned and looking the right way. As soon as we thought we had 1 girl the other would move and so on, I was exhausted by the end. Here is the product of our efforts. Overall we learned a lot and luckily we got a few cute ones.

Baby in a tub
The "couch series" no.1
no.3- this one might be the best even though no one is looking, no one is pulling a face either.
The floor series, if we could have gotten them lined up a little better, I think these would be really great- but still pretty good.
Cute of G, notice not one of E - that one won't hold still!
These are sweet but didn't work out well with the baby.
Love the joy on Elsa's face, that is so her.
I need help, tell me which ones you like best- thanks.

Mountain Trip

The last week in July we headed up to Tamarack, Idaho - just outside McCall for a week with Brock's family. We had a great time up in the mountains, McCall is just beautiful - the lake was gorgeous. There was a great beach area on the water the kids just loved.

Fun in the sand with cousins
And runway shows
Cute little one was just happy to be there

Baby Blessing

Ada's Blessing was a wonderful day. Brock gave a beautiful prayer and she was perfect of course, just looking around and smiling. She wore the same dress that I was blessed in- and worn by both her sisters before her. We enjoyed seeing lots of family & friends, thanks for joining us! My sister Kayce & her kids and my mom were here visiting so it was special to have them with us.
