On the Move!

This has been a busy week of movement. Evan has started crawling!! He has been crawling for almost a week now- and he has gotten fast! He can go into different rooms and under tables so quickly. Aimlee is not quit2015-06-18 11.40.19 e sure about the whole situation, as he follows her around and wants to play with all her toys. He has also started to pull himself up. He is growing up so quickly- 2 months until he is ONE!

Aimlee is loving the summer weather. Water, BBQs and playgrounds, are some of her favorite activities. There is so much to do in the summer and I am not as paran2015-06-20 11.13.36oid about germs and baths are easier since it’s warmer. So we get out a lot more this time of year.

I have been having fun planning a 91st birthday for my grandmother. I am so thankful for such a fun project this summer.

This upcoming weekend is our 5 year wedding anniversary- which means we have been together for 11 years. It’s crazy to think about. I can still remember our first year of dating like it was yesterday. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful partner in life. God gave me a true everyday blessing. I look forward to celebrating our love this weekend!

 

June!

I love the month of June. We have so much to celebrate. It is almost as important and busy as Christmas at our house. Jason’s birthday was this past week, and we have Father’s Day, then our anniversary is the next weekend. So many things to celebrate and 2015-06-13 18.05.48prepare for! I love it!

Jason’s birthday was a three day celebration- including his favorite meals, a movie and his favorite restaurant. Yes, we saw the Jurassic Park Movie! Jason said “I want a Dinosaur” like 100 times after seeing it! I love his smile when he is so happy!

Aimlee loved preparing for Daddy’s birthday- all the wrapping a2015-06-10 21.22.19nd cupcake baking. She has been enjoying the nice weather. We cleaned up the back patio and she got to play with her water table yesterday!

Evan started eating finger foods this week. I am so excited! The past couple times we have tried it, he has gagged and throw2015-06-09 19.21.14n up. So, I figured he just wasn’t ready- but this time, he was excited to try it! He is getting to be such a big boy!

Being so busy, I didn’t work out very much in the past week. I think I did twice, and this week is not off to a great start. I need some crazy motivation! Jason and I have talked about “earning” things I want based on my work out schedule- so maybe that will help, hopefully!

Looking forward to this week and spending some fun time with my babies, just being at home!

 

 

 

Our First All Day Outing (with babies)

This week we went on our first all day adventure with two babies- and we survived. It was so fun too! We went to the Rocky IMG_3023Mountain Air show. The US AF Thunderbirds were the highlight of the day.

It took hours, the night before making sure we had everything we needed for a 2 year old and a baby for an all day- outdoor in- the- heat- event. And we had everything we needed- amazing!

It was a lot different attending an event like this with kids- that’s for sure! I feel like I spent most ofIMG_3031 my day, baby watching- but it was so worth it! We all had a fun day!

IMG_3033Aimlee got to experience a lot of firsts. First time riding the bus, first time playing in the sand, first time walking in the “beach” water and first air show (except for the one she was in my tummy for). She even liked watching the Thunderbirds. I don’t even think she minded the noise- she laughed and said “that’s loud”.

Evan did remarkably well for his first all day outing. He sat in the stroller (in the shade) most of the time, playing with his toys and watching everything around him. The funnieIMG_3027st thing that happened all day was Evan falling asleep while the Thunderbirds were flying over. I even nursed him during their part of the show- that was a new experience. Nursing while sitting in the sand and gigantic, loud jets flying over.  Both kids slept great that night. I told Jason we have to go to the air show everyday!!

It was defiantly a very fun day!
