Ava's Helping Hands

Ava is always wanting to help so I let her try to vacuum the kitchen floor. She started to cry when I took it away from her. She is becoming such and independent little one.

Talking Baby.

Kaden is starting to say dada so here a short video of him talking.

Our Beach Day

Yesterday I took the kids to the beach and we had a great time. Jack boogie boarded for the first time and had a had a blast. He was a little unsure about going into the water before we got to the beach. Danny bought him this movie on sharks and so he thought there would be sharks in the water near him. Once we got to the beach there wasn't a word about sharks. He was too excited about playing. Ava didn't want to get all the way into the water she just wanted to stay where the wave came to the shore and would put her hands into it. As for Kaden he was just happy to outside.

Ava and The Postcard

I finally got the camera out to take a video of Ava and her postcards that Danny has been sending to the kids. She gets all excited when she sees one in the stack of mail and says dada when she holds it. Of course the second you get the camera out they won't do it..

On The Move!

Kaden is all over the place now. He is not full on crawling yet but close to it. He has figured out how to push himself forward and do the army man crawl. Now I have to be extra mindful of what toys Jack and Ava get out. Boy oh boy....

Our Happenings

Summer has started in our household this past month with the start of our trip to Lake Powell. We spent 10 days camping on the lake and boy I don't think I will do that again. The weather was hot, no running water, and 3 small kids.. Boy what was I thinking when I decided to go. Who knows. But the kids had a great time and loved being able to eat breakfast and run straight to the water to swim every morning. Once we got home we have just been hanging out around the house getting things ready for Danny to come home on leave. Which means painting our room and hanging up pictures. Thank goodness for my mom. She locked us all out of the room and painted the whole thing in one day. It would have taken me 3 days to paint with all the interruptions the kids make:) Along with painting the kids have been enjoying swimming in the pool and playing outside in the evenings when it is cool. Other than that nothing much had been happening..

Our First Dodger Game

Jack and I went to our first baseball game last night and we had a great time.. One of the perks of Danny being in the military is we got great seats near the visitors bullpen on field level for really cheap.. Jacks favorite part was getting the foam finger and all the snacks the vendors sell..
