Summer Days

So when I think back to last summer I remember being hot and pregnant, which basically meant I wasn't up to do as much as I usually would with the kiddos. So far this summer I made a goal to do one fun thing every day with the kids. The one we do almost daily is the kids get sprayed with water on the trampoline. We have been to the library, on walks, playing with friends, and swimming. As for some updates on the kids, Monroe turned 8 months old and she is getting so big, wearing size 18-24 months! 18 month fits best though. Some 12 month clothes still fit her, but I might have to squish her a little bit. She now has three teeth on the bottom, can feed herself cheerios like a champ, can pull herself up in her crib and she is starting to move forward. She will get this whole crawling thing down very soon. It also seems like she likes to sing along when she hears music. Elise is happy to be cast free although I remind her daily to be extra careful and to take breaks to rest her leg. Carter has figured how to snap and do a front flip on the tramp, oh and he's started training so in the future he can be on America's Ninja Warrior :) Ha! He also got his very own library card this week. Until next time...

Monroe seems to always try to sing along when music is playing. Future superstar?

First Trip of the Summer

We took our first trip of the summer to Idaho to visit family. The kids had fun and enjoyed being able to finally wear their "summer clothes" and go to the Zoo, Bear World, play with cousins and eat lots of yummy food and treats. Let's just say these kiddos were pretty spoiled by Grammy :) Enjoy some pictures of the first part of our week long adventure.

At the Zoo with cousins: Austin, Carter, Elise, McCall, Addison, Tate and Boston in the cool shades
