Isabel and the Walking Toy! (video)

I can't believe that Isabel is getting so big! I got out our little walking toy yesterday for Isable to play with and I was completely surprised when she was able to walk with it right away! I was trying to block it with my foot so that it would move slowly and she didn't like that. I moved my foot and she just took off with the biggest smile on her face! I was so much fun to watch her. It won't be too long and she will be walking!

Memorial Day Weekend

We had a wonderfully fun weekend!  It was hot hot hot so we had to find some fun ways to stay cool.  Saturday we filled up our little pool and the let kids have fun swimming in our backyard.  We were supposed to go to a family cookout at my sisters on Sunday but Eli woke up in the middle of the night and had gotten sick in his bed.  He seemed absolutely fine and I was pretty sure that it was just a flook but we didn't think being out in the hot sun was a good idea.  So instead we headed to the movies to see the Lorax!  To end this fun weekend we headed over to the in laws for a cook out and family swim!  All 3 of our kids LOVE the water!
Eli loving the pool!

Isabel wasn't too sure of the cold water
We got out to rest a bit
But she had other ideas

Swimming at Grandma and Papa's

All smiles!


She LOVED just floating in the water!

What better way to finish the weekend then with an ice cream cone!

Our Little Climber

It all started with this little Brobee chair
She became quite pleased with herself!

Not too high off the ground so not too bad
Then she moved on to the big chairs
and had no problem with them


She likes to climb to the top
and this is how she gets down :-)

Just chilling one night

She is trouble!

She is even climbing toys now

Is this not how you sit in a bouncy seat?
Up one side
Crawl across

to the other side

Pretty pleased with herself!

Her favorite spot in the house
What am I going to do with this girl!

Mother's Day

I had a very wonderful mother's day!  All 3 of the kids slept in until 8:00!  Of course I was up at 6:30 to shower and get ready before the kids woke up. :-)  We went out for breakfast with Mike's side of the family.  There are 6 kids 5 years old and under so it is always a good (loud) time when we get together.  Grand baby #7(not from me) will be here in December so the fun times will continue!

After breakfast we came back home and went for a nice walk.  They had been calling for rain but it ended up being gorgeous outside which was perfect for our lunch picnic with my side of the family.  The boys had a blast playing on the playground with their cousins and checking out a little trail that led to some water.  After we came home the boys had to try on the Ninja Turtle costumes Grandma Alice brought for the boys to play with. :-)

It is always wonderful to spend time with family, always!
I am so very blessed to have these 3 call me mommy!
Our favorite rock :-)

Love these 3 so very very much!
The boys have a blast racing to the tree and back when we go for walks
