Season of Change

I am starting to feel a little bad that all of these posts are going in on one day, but I have to take advantage of the time I have. =)

Something is changing in our household.  It isn't a family big vacations......can you guess?!?!

Riley is starting Preschool!!!  It is hard to believe he is old enough to be in school and spending three hours all by himself away from people he knows.  For the past three years if Riley was not with us he was with family members.  It is such an exciting time.....but I will admit that it is a little hard to let your baby go.  Even if it is only for three hours.

My Little Girl is TWO

The time has seriously just flown by. My sweet little girl is growing up so quickly that I almost don't believe it sometimes. She is so funny and full of life. I am amazed at how quickly she picks things up and repeats everything you do or say. She is my little daredevil and is not afraid of much.....except bugs. She definitely DOES NOT LIKE BUGS!!!

For her birthday we were able to celebrate with friends and family and have a fun day at our house. We went with the Owl theme this year because she fell in love with the Owl pillows at Target one day while shopping. It was such a fun theme to work around and definitely tested my cake and cupcake making skills. Daddy was busy at work building our little chef a play kitchen. It turned out FAB-U-LOUS and was a huge hit! I even was able to help contribute a little by picking out the accessories and sewing the curtains and towels. Danny worked so hard at making sure everything was just right and it definitely shows the love that he poured into it. The kids play with this almost everyday still. I am guessing that this will be a hard one to top next year.

4th of July

The 4th of July was such a fun filled weekend for all of us.  We had so much going on but it was really a lot of fun to see the kids get excited about the day.  For at least two nights prior we had many "explosions" until at least midnight.  Which, generally is not a big deal, except the kids would not sleep.  They were scared and didn't understand what was going on.  Thankfully, the 4th fell on a Sunday and we did not end up with another two or three nights of the festivities continuing. 

Time to Catch Up!

Like most things in life lately, I am behind.  I am hoping to get all things caught up in the real world as well as the blog world. 

Let's start with our fun trip to Vegas......

I know, we have already been there this year but the opportunity to join our friends and celebrate a birthday was too good to pass up. It was such a fun few days spent relaxing, gambling, and eating some really good food.  The whole trip had such a laid back vibe and was so different than the first time we went.
