Kelsey's Birthday

Bailey's birthday was on a Saturday so she was able to have Daddy home all day with her, but Kelsey's was on a Monday this year so no Daddy till dinner :( But we were invited to go to the Zoo with lot's of our friends, which was very very fun.
She started the day off right, petting a snake, YUCK! But she loved it so that's great.

We worked our way up to the play area for lunch.

Kelsey, MaKendree, and Sophie enjoyed screaming through the poles.

You can hardly see it but there's a gorilla sleeping on the left. Bailey thought it was so funny he wasn't wearing shoes!

One of our last visits was to the giraffes. The one in front of bailey is fake. We had a really fun and really long day. Not too long after we got home daddy called us to pick him up from school and we went out to dinner.

A few days later we had a little party for our baby...
She loves Minnie right now so of course we had Minnie Mouse Cupcakes!

September Fun

We've had a couple other fun activities this month. The girls and I were invited to Ice cream with a couple of our friends. The girls love this place because they get Dinosaur Sprinkles and free pretzel rods with their ice cream!!

We also had the opportunity to be in our ward variety show!!! Bailey and Kelsey were not interested in being on the stage for their dance, but some of the other dental student wives and I were able to surprise our husbands with a very special show. I unfortunately don't have the video of it yet but as soon as I do I'll put it up!

Bailey's Birthday

September always starts out with a bang with Bailey's birthday. 
As far as I know Bailey has never seen Hello Kitty but she's absolutely in love with it. So she got a Hello Kitty birthday cake!
Here she is getting ready to blow out her candles and as soon as we started to sing to her she started crying!

She got the same cake as last year...the rainbow cake! It tastes soooo goood!!!

We had lot's and lot's of friends that joined us for that special day.

Bailey also received many fun presents. Thanks everyone for your thoughtfulness and kindness.

Summer fun

I forgot to add our random summer fun!

This is at the city pool the girls love going mostly because our friends usually meet us there.

our neighborhood pool party :( sad isn't it...

Bailey cannot get enough of our neighbor Mae!

The girls are a jammin' I'm not sure to what though

This was cute! Jared and I were in the kitchen cleaning up from dinner when Kelsey comes walking in pushing a cart full of groceries, talking, and texting! Where does she learn that behavior?!

I'm not sure when this was taken but they look like they're having fun. (Macy, Bailey, and Jared)

We've also got a couple videos to share...but they wouldn't upload so I'll have to see if Jared can help me figure them out.

Lastly sweet Bailey is falling asleep in all sorts of funny ways
Here I was sitting on the chair cutting out the vinyl for my mom when Bailey climbed on the chair behind me and fell asleep!

This one's cute too, she took my phone to play with and I went in the play room to check on her and found her sound asleep half off the couch with of course the phone still in her hand!

And of course the all too common falling asleep during dinner. I swear we don't eat at 8pm she just get's so tired we love watching her head bob and her eyes slowly close until finely she falls asleep.


Well apparently we had a pretty boring June because I don't have any pictures! Oh well, on to July!

We started out with a fabulous 4th

Later in the month when Jared had his break from school we went up to Palmyra to see the Pagent

We went to a place called the Dinosaur BBQ. It was really good! If anyone goes to Rochester anytime soon I highly suggest it.

Getting comfy for the show

Bailey and Kelsey were having a lot of fun playing while we waited for the show to start.

Luckily the Atkins came too and we had friends to play with.
After Palmyra we drove home for 2 hrs while I repacked our bags and we headed off to Wisconsin.
Kelsey LOVES Grammy, she hopped in her lap the minute we arrived! And of course Bailey just watched TV.

We had a little work to do on this trip too. My sister Krissie designed a logo for the office my mom works for so we had to go in and put up the vinyl I cut out for the wall and the window.

The girls have had lots of fun playing with their cousins at Grandma's house.

Speaking of Projects... I also convinced Jared to help me repaint the powder room...

 Today we got to go to the Lake! The Jensen's were kind enough to let us play and play we did.
Kelsey couldn't get enough of the water. It was so nice and warm! Kelsey even loved walking in it by herself as much as we'd let her. Don't worry we only let her do it in the shallow end.

And this is our Beach baby. She was just fine with sitting on the shore playing in the sand. Time and again we tried to get her in the water and after a few minutes she'd ask to go right back to the sand.

 The trampoline was one of the best parts of the lake! The girls liked jumping on it and Jared and I liked jumping off of it.

 We also went to IKEA with my mom. While she and I were getting food for lunch Jared entertained the girls by taking pictures of them.

We've got a few more days here and hopefully more pictures to come! So far we've had a blast and can't wait for Grandpa Shelley and Uncle Ean to come home from Spain tomorrow!!!
