The Ending Days of Summer

This week the kids have been busy playing in their kiddie pool, the park and with their toys. Carter is starting to crawl faster and faster everyday. He is still obessed with putting everything in his mouth and has recently discovered his tongue. He loves all toys especially the ones with music. He will have his 6 month check-up on Monday.
As for his sister, this week the pacifier fairy came to our house and took away all her pacifiers. Elise was so into the story it was cute. "Because I'm a big now, she took them away." I also took Elise to a new park. This was her statement upon seeing the secluded park. "Look Mommy, there's a park in the forest!" It was pretty funny.
Daniel has started working with the High School Football team as a coach. School starts soon, so he is getting them ready for the season. Go Eagles! He will be super busy juggling the kids, school and football, but I know he is excited :)
My only story this week is getting a flat tire. We got car the towed to a local shop and found out because we live in such a small town the tire had to be special ordered. Four days later, we finally got a new tire. It wasn't too bad walking to work especially since the weather has been so nice and not so hot. Our plans for this weekend, staying home and kicking back, it should be nice. Check out the pics below.

I just love the colors here especially with the stormy clouds behind

For employee appreciation day each office (there are 15 total throughout the state) were asked to dress up in Hawaiian attire and send in their picture. Guess which office won? Ha ha!

Carter is on the move!

Last night Carter started moving faster than he ever has before. He is 3 weeks ahead of schedule from when his sister started crawling, but so far they are about the same as far as reaching milestones. Enjoy the videos! We love you baby Carter!

Travel Week

This week was lots and lots of traveling. I was able to go on a 2 day business trip and find out more interesting things about Wyoming. First of all there are two towns name Daniel and Carter, who knew? We also went down as a family to Utah to visit friends and family. We went to Hogle Zoo which Elise and her bestie Kalena LOVED! Elise went on her first carousel ride. We also got to spend time with my sis Whitney and bro-in-law Trevor. We ate at the most yummy sushi restaurant with them. All you can eat sushi = happiness! Kiddos did pretty well, we are now home sweet home and ready to start a new week.

Daniel, Wyoming. Population 110
Carter, Wyoming, so small no population is listedI had to document this. Only in Wyoming is there a GIANT moose in front of a Chinese restaurant.

Cute Kids!

Okay so maybe I am biased because they are mine, but I think these two kiddos are pretty darn cute. This week Carter has started to sit up on his own and scoot himself backward. Watch out world, this kid will be crawling before you know it!
