First Day of School

Yesterday was Kenna's first day of Preschool. She waited outside for the bus for half an hour. She's been more than ready to go to school for over a year. She totally pulled a Mckenna, walking nonchalantly up to the bus as if she had done it a million times before.

She had a lot of fun, but I had a hard time getting details out of her because she just is soo cool and wants to act like it's no big deal, even though I can tell she's excited.

Happy Birthday my Little Kayla

My little Kayla turned 3 and I feel bad that I didn't take any pictures, I only recorded it and can't get the video to load. I did find the birthday cake picture though.

Anyone that knows Kayla knows that she is just a ray of sunshine. She is goofy and silly and friendly. She loves to sing (especaially when she is in a public bathroom). She loves to swing and is proud that she can pump herself. She's so full of personality! Happy Birthday my little Kayla, I love you!

Summer Time Pictures

Here is what we have been up to this summer. It's been pretty busy!

Kenna building her sand castle (PEI).

Kayla learned to pump while we were at PEI. No one would push her so she got on the swing and when we looked over she was just pumping herself higher and higher with a big smile.

Kayla playin on the beach (PEI)

One side of the beach on PEI looked like this but the other we perfect sandy beach with warm water.

Prince Edward Island. The girls thought these were the coolest chairs.

The main reason we went to Utah was for John and Sarah's wedding. Here are the happy couple after the big day as they came to say goodbye before they headed down to St. George for the rest of the honey moon. You guys look good with kids (hint hint).

Kayla and her cousin Lucas

Kenna and her Cousin Sam.

One of the highlights of our trip to Utah was being able to see baby Crew. Mckenna loved holding him.

Kayla loves to try the monkey bars

So when my parents were here my dad spotted a squirrel in the yard. No big deal, right? We see them every day. Well when he pointed it out to us we thought that looked like one fat squirrel. Turns out it was not a squirrel but a ground hog. He was really cute but he was eating all of my nice flowers. The girls loved seeing him come out and lay on the deck. They liked him so much (and he came out so often) that Mckenna named him Bibbles. Well, we explained that Bibbles couldn't stay in the yard. After a little drama the girls accepted this and we put a trap out. We caught him preatty quickly. We took him to a new place just down the street by the river in the woods. Now whenever we drive by there the girls yell, "Hiiiii Bibbles." Bibbles? Where do they come up with stuff.


Ok, we went to Utah, tiled our entryway and finished our basement. Then my parents came to visit and we went to Prince Edward Island for a few days. On top of that I started my new semester of school and have finished another class. This summer has been really busy and I can't really sit and play catch up. I'll post pictures and they can do the talking.
