Elise is turning 9, wow time is really flying! Next year will be her golden birthday, crazy! But let's not get ahead of ourselves, I mean she just turned 8! One great thing about Elise, is this year she has become an amazing helper with Quincy and Monroe, a true older sister. Always helping out and watching them, this makes me very happy. She also got glasses this year and can finally see. She loves reading and is to Harry Potter books at the moment, loves to sing, draw, cook, plays piano, and likes to play outside any chance she gets. Thanks for being so awesome Elise, we love you!!! Love, Mommy, Poppa, Carter, Monroe and Quincy :)

After three summers of the kids begging and I wasn't pregnant during the summertime we finally obliged and took them to Lagoon Amusement Park. We researched all the best tips of what to bring, the best rides etc etc in hopes to make it the best experience possible. We had my friend Jen babysit Quincy and Monroe and just took Elise and Carter to Lagoon. This way we had no strollers to deal with and the older kids who are now tall enough to go on all the grown up rides could enjoy it even more. We brought a cooler in and since it was Aggie Day they had an entire building all set up just for us to put our cooler and food in. Other than that I just had my fanny pack. That's right my sweet leather fanny pack I got for $2 at the DI. I was pretty pleased with my purchase. It held all sorts of things to help get us through the day, stick sunscreen, band aids, chapstick, hair ties, ziplock bags, cash, cell phone, granola bars, tylenol in case of headache. I felt pretty resourceful throughout the day. My favorite thing that we heard ALL day long was "Mom or Poppa can we go on that again?" It was pretty funny. I am glad they had fun. We then headed up to Wyoming for Dayna's 30th birthday extravaganza including a pig cooked in an umu and a day spent at a splash pad with volleyball, basketball and ending the day with a feast, cake and lots of Magalogos.

This year my sister Whitney came up for the first time to check out Summerfest, it was Bailey's second time attending. One thing that helped was that it was cooler this year. The kiddos had fun getting their faces painted, creating at the art yard, inhaling cotton candy, and Whitney and I had fun looking at all the fun art and we enjoyed a Texas Twister beverage. Enjoy pictures of these cute cousins. :)
