When she wants into the house she presses her face to the glass.
Ava all muddy
She found the mud that Jack made.

Jack's eyes!

Jack got a hold of the camera again and this is what I found..

Amber came up for the day yesterday and spent the night. After baths this morning I took some pictures of Kaden and Katelyn. Jack wanted to have his picture take also. I am amazed at the difference between Kaden and Katelyn and they are only a week a part.

Our Day at The Lake!

Jack and his cousin fell asleep this way. Too cute.
Ava fell asleep with her candy.

I don't want to do this!
I am okay now!

Jack trying out the Hydroslide

Ava eating her breakfast.
Yesterday was our first trip out to the lake for the season. Jack and Ava had a great time playing in the water and riding in the boat. Jack was somewhat brave (more like I made him) and attempted to hydroslide. He did a great job after he stopped crying and screaming. Ava was just glad to be in the boat along for the ride. As for Kaden he was happy to just be held and slept most of the day in between feedings.

Danny asked for a video of Kaden since he is starting to coo and giggle a little now. I am so happy once they reach this stage and start to become more alert during the day and react when you talk to them.


Ava climbed into the swing. At times I think she might be reverting back to the days of a baby.
Ava found these rattles I used to put on her feet when she was a baby and insisted that my mom put them on her. When I saw her with them on I couldn't help but laugh and take a picture. She has such a personality and knows what she wants now.

Here is a video of her dancing. She will start dancing at all most anything she hears. Her dancing is the cutest thing ever and always makes me smile. Moments like this make being a mother worth it.

Just pictures

Kaden's tummy time

Ava enjoying a push-up while the pool was being set up..

Setting up the pool!

Jack pushing the sand out of the trailer. He wanted to help so bad.
Jack helping smooth the sand.

We finally set the pool up for the season a few days ago. The weather has been nice enough to get it out. The set up took a while since we had to make the box for the sand to go in and than go and pick up the sand, smooth it out and clean the pool since we were in such a rush to pack the house we forgot to dry parts of the inside of the pool. Once the pool was filled Jack jumped right in and enjoyed himself. The pool was quite cold and after about 10 minutes his lips were starting to turn purple but he still didn't want to get out. Finally after about 45 minutes he decided he would get out with a promise he could have a hot bath ( he still would have stayed in if I didn't bargain with him). Now summer has officially started for our household.

A Duck!

Today Jack found a duck in our bushs out front and he wanted to keep it. So We gave the duck some water and we put him in a box for him to take care of until I find the duck a new home.

The Start of Our Garden!

A picture of all of us after we got done planting.

Today was an exciting day in our house, we planted our garden! Jack has been asking to plant a few thing for a while now so I thought we would plant a small garden. Now that Roz lives close I thought I would ask here and the kids to join us. We all picked out the plants we wanted to see grow and will be taking turns watering and tending to the garden. What a great way to learn and grow as a family. We are all excited to see how it works out and watch our garden grow.
